    I have realllly pale skin and prefer mouse/powder based foundations but cant seem to find any pale enough for me! I was thinking of Nicola Roberts dainty doll and i know you can get it at asos.com but wanted to see if theres any good highstreet brands you guys can recommend?
    Max. £25

    Thankss
    my friend has reaaaaaaaally pale skin and the dream matte mouse by maybelline (i think) is what she uses, she uses the palest one and doesn't ever look orange, it just matches her face, my advice is to check out the shades of them maybe OP?

    I have reaaaally pale skin too and I use Mac in the lightest shade possible.. it's amaaaazing <3 studio fix powder is better than the fluid I think, but that's because I like a perfectly matte finish

    Jemma Kidd's make up range is good
    I use 02 (fair) and it blends really really well. I think its £20 but I'm not massively sure on that one.

    I have pale skin and I adore Chanel's makeup - the Mat Lumiere is only £26 too. Get the lighest shade and it works a treat! Ask for samples at all the counters in John Lewis/Debenhams etc and try them all out each day. Though for my experience, Estee Lauder is too dark for me. The "02 Light" made me orange!

    I'd recommend not going for a mousse as it shows up every blemish possible... liquid foundation then a powder on top has always worked best for me. Then you can just repowder when necessary! I always get an expensive liquid foundation and then just a cheap powder (£1.99 for Boot's Natural Collection Compact Powder) and it works perfectly.

    I use MAC's Studio Fix in NW15. I'm not a huge fan of the consistency, but it is pale. I think I'm going to try out Prescriptives when I need new foundation as it's had so many positive comments from girlies on here .

    Palest you can get and is really light and goes on easily. Might need some powder with it though as it can get a bit shiny.

    Same problem use loreal perfect match, it's pretty matt/light and translucent powder is great for making pale skin extra matt. An c'mon it's like £8!!!
