I have been on the hunt for a foundation pale enough for me for years and I recently found it. I tried out so many different foundations both high-end and high-street which means that I’ve been able to compile a list of the palest ones around. They may not have been my perfect match but they were still incredibly pale and I know they’ll work out for the majority of pale folk out there.
L’Oréal Paris True Match – 0.5N Porcelain
I’m starting off with my dream foundation because it is the one that inspired this post. This has always been my favourite foundation but it just ended up being way too dark for me in the past. However, they have just brought out a new shade, 0.5N porcelain, and it ended up being my perfect shade. They also do a 0.5R Rose Porcelain which is the same shade but in a pink undertone. I adore this foundation because it’s very long wearing, amazing coverage and looks like a second skin.
Mac Pro-Longwear Nourishing – NW13
This foundation would have been the perfect shade for me had it been in a more neutral undertone as it carried more on the pink side. The coverage was fantastic and it made the perfect foundation for nights out but I found the formula to be slightly too thick for everyday usage. It does have an incredibly flawless finish and leaves your skin feeling hydrated which I loved about it.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte and Poreless – 95
Just like the previous foundation, it carried a little bit too pink for my liking but if you love a gorgeous soft matte finish then this is for you. The coverage can be built up to full without being cakey but I don’t recommend this for dry skin as it will cling to dry patches and age you 10 years.
Rimmel Match Perfection – 001 Fair Porcelain
This foundation was the perfect tone for me and I have never had my foundation look so natural (apart from L’Oréal of course). I have nothing bad to say about this foundation apart from the fact that it was just too dark for me but I got away with it by blending down my neck.
Mac Studiofix Fluid – NC5
I personally did not get along with the formula of this foundation but they recently brought out the new extended shade range and I cannot fault the variety that they have. NC5 is probably the second lightest one that I have mentioned and does have a neutral undertone but the formula was too thick for my personal taste. It could be perfect for you if you enjoy a higher and thicker coverage.
I’m sorry I don’t have photos of all the foundations to show you but I sadly don’t own them all anymore. Remember that this is based purely on shade range and not the formula as I am aware there are more than just my skin type out there.
I will be doing a collection of “Top 5 for Pale People’ posts including concealers, blushers, bronzers and contour but it may take me a while to complete the series as I need to continue my very expensive search for pale products.
I hope you guys have enjoyed this post and if you know of any super pale products that could work for me and fellow readers then let me know below.
