What foundation does everyone wear?

I'm painfully pale, as in casper the friendly ghost pale and I really struggle to find a foundation that matches. I used to use the Revlon Nearly Naked in 110 Ivory which was advertised buy Emma Stone because she is pale but even that leaves me with orange streaks.

Any advice would help me greatly

Thank you

Yes! I have a very pale skin. I don't get any tan. I've come to terms with it now haha. But i use the compact bb cream from Mac in the color extra light. It has a really good coverage and it doesn't really dry out my skin. It's not very cheap, but not that expansive too. I got it for €18,-

I struggle with foundation further because my skin is also very pink-toned rather than the yellow-toned they seem to make all foundations for, but I went and did that No7 skin test they do and use Calico, their lightest shade. The other one that's good is Lush's colour supplements (light pink/light yellow), which I tend to mix with moisturiser

I had the same problem! The only foundation I've ever found to match my pale skin is bare minerals in 'fair'

I used to use Dream Matte Mousse in Porcelain (005) which is one shade up from Ivory (010), although apparently there's a 'Light Porcelain' now, which is 004 but now I just use Dream Fresh BB Cream from Maybelline instead.

I use studio fix by Mac in NW10 which is their lightest shade and it fits me perfectly. I always found the lightest shades like ivory on brands such as rimmel or maybelline just weren't light enough for me.
If you're really porcelain pale though illamasqua do a white foundation which you mix with a regular foundation to lighten it. Depends on your budget though as premium makeup is pretty expensive

Me too! That's the same shade I use.
At OP i recommend you just go to your nearest boost or superdrug or wherever and try out the samplers for all the light shades you can find and see which fits best.

Nars Sheer Glow in Siberia should sort you out! Expensive but lasts ages and 100% won't leave you orange.

It depends what skin type you have too; if you have normal/dry skin then Sheer Glow would be best but if you have oily/combination skin then Nars do a Matte version... the only downside with this foundation is that it will take you longer for you to blend it properly as it's high coverage so a little goes a long way!

Very true, I have dry skin so I didn't even think of oily alternatives! Thanks for the addition

I don't use foundation as I don't like covering up my freckles but I use this really cheap BB cream by MUA (super cheap brand at Superdrug, cost me £1) in the palest colour. I'd recommend it, although not everything works for everyone.
