    I have very pale skin, but all the foundations I test are either WAY too dark or kinda make me look yellow until I put tons of bronzer on lol

    So does anyone know some good brands of foundation for pale skin?

    Do you have a MAC store local? I've always struggled to find a foundation that matches my skin. Based on a recommendation from a friend I asked one of the girls in there to help me pick a shade out and they did a perfect job.

    Nars Mont Blanc (pink undertones) or Nars Siberia (yellow/ neutral undertones).


    Stay away from drugstore brands; shade options and undertones are limited and also likely to oxidise.

    Illamasqua also have very pale shades.

    Ah Thank you so much for the suggestions! I've heard about L'oreal true match actually, is it good on oily/combination skin?

    Im currently using Nars Siberia at the moment but it just makes me look really yellow in certain light so I'm not sure it its too pale or too dark!

    Thank you! How much is MAC foundation and which type would you recommend for oily/combination skin?

    Perhaps the undertone is incorrect. You might be more "pink toned".
