    I am practically a vampire. Put it this way I had the 'colour match' thing done in Boots and even their palest was 'too yellow' for me according to the lady.

    I need a reasonably priced pale foundation? Any advice? D:

    I'll certainly check it out next time I'm in the city! 'English rose' oh gosh the amount of times I get 'you'd have been considered very pretty 200 years ago' as if that's some sort of compliment!

    Have you tried Estee Lauder Double Wear? It's a little pricey however I find a bottle lasts me quite some time, and they have a load of different shades. I have very pale skin but even their palest is too pale for me, so I use a couple of shades up from that.

    I guess if nothing else works I could try this, I'm not the sort to wear it everyday (luckily have pretty okay skin that only needs some concealer to be 'passable') so a bottle would probably last me a very long time

    Max Factor is usually really good for pale skin. I use the 3 in 1 foundation and it comes out practically white <3

    Hey if it was too yellow you may have more pink tones in your skin , if your looking at drugstore ones try borjour, loreal or max factor they do tones for lighter skin

    If you decided later to invest in something else try estee lauder double wear or bare minerals.


    I would recommend trying it on the Chin to neck and put three different colours next to each other and see if you can look at it in natural light . Places like Fenwick, John Lewis and boots always seem to have artifical lighting . So don't be afraid to ask for samples try them and look in natural light or even get them to write the names down.

    Hope this helps

    All the foundations previously mentioned in this thread have been too dark for me. The only one to match my skin is revlon colour stay in the lightest shade, or I found a powder foundation online from lilylolo that have very pale shades which also work for me! Both are reasonably priced. With regards to higher end I find nars are the only brand that I can get a match.

    Seventeen Stay Time in the lightest shade is really light and full coverage, and its about £6! If not, Blue Banana and probably Amazon too, do white foundation that you can mix in with another foundation to lighten it - and its really cheap
