    I've just ordered YSL Touch Eclat, and now I'm looking for a really quite pale liquid foundation that's fairly light. Does anyone have any recs? That won't cost me a small fortune like YSL has, when I'm very much use to the 3-for-2 offers on maybelline

    ALSO I'm after some loose powder which is also pale, but the stuff I've found, the pots are too small for my liking. Again, any recommendations?

    Thanks guys!

    Touch Eclat is a kick ass product. Good buy.

    Clarins has some really good foundations, but they are a bit pricier.

    I find that basic Sephora brand is really good as well (do you have Sephora in the UK? Maybe I'm being silly...)

    I really like Estee Lauder foundation and powder, but it is a bit pricey. L'Oreal True Match mineral powder foundation is meant to be pretty good.

    I use Prescriptives foundation in Real Cream (I think it's called) which is a very lovely ivory colour. I then use Chanel's loose powder (translucent) in Clair which is too, ivory based.

    I'm not into that 'tanorexic' look myself lol.

    Hehe, 'tanorexic'. There's a girl from my old school on facebook who had quite 'normal-looking' Caucasian skin before but her fake tan + dyed black hair combi makes her look a complete mess now. Don't know whether to laugh or feel sad for her...

    Anyway, back on topic...try Lily Lolo foundation - it's a foundation and loose powder in one

    MAC studio tech is the best foundation I've ever bought, and I have very pale skin too. Some people could find it a tad too heavy, but it's perfect for me. Paying the extra money is totally worth it in my opinion. Once you go mac you never go back!

    Sounds a strange question - but what is the palest foundation anyone has come across?
    I have looked everywhere and all foundations, be they ivory or porcelain or whatever, all look orange on me. I am ridiculously pale, think anaemic celtic skin, and it's so stressful not being able to wear any foundation without my neck being about five shades lighter than my face! haha. If you want to see how pale I am then have a gander at my profile, will try and whack a piccy up. Any help appreciated. (sorry to semi-hijack the thread!). xxx

    I'm really pale and I use Benefit- non-fiction volume 1. However, It is still slightly too dark on me... though when it is on it blends nicely and doesn't look too bad.

    I reiterate my suggestion of Lily Lolo - I always went for the palest liquid foundations available, then I tried the palest Lily Lolo and it was actually too pale for me :eek: and I had to go for the next one up, which sounds like the palest one will be perfect for you

    Try Boots No 7 Intelligent Colour Foundation (in 'light') - it'll adapt to your skin colour.

    I generally have difficulties finding suitable foundations and I tried the foundation in 'medium' and initially thought it was too dark and generally nothing like my skin tone...but it actually matched it almost perfectly!

    It's really light as well, so it won't looked caked on. And you only need a little bit so it'll last for ages...

    Anyway, good luck!

    For powder, i love No7's loose one. I think it's £10 or £11 pound. Mine lasts me around six months, and I am very pale!
