Anyone else paler than Snow White and struggling to find that perfect foundation shade? We’ve got you covered! Not only can finding the perfect foundation be challenging, but it can also be expensive!
Nobody wants to look tango orange or have to settle for white face paint, so we’ve compiled a list of the eight best foundation shades for pale skin, all of which can be found in the drugstore!
1. Rimmel Match Perfection Foundation
This foundation is a must-have for pale gals, as it features a wide range of shades. It is around a medium coverage, meaning it will cover any redness or blemishes but also won’t make your face feel cakey or thick, which is always a plus! It’s smooth, easy to apply and best of all, cheap! We found it at Superdrug for only £8.29.
2. Maybelline Fit Me Foundation
This is the perfect foundation for someone who doesn’t want to look too made-up. It provides light-medium coverage and leaves the skin glowing! With a little bit of powder and setting spray, this foundation looks flawless all day long. This foundation is an inexpensive option as well, coming in at only £7.99.
3. L’Oreal Paris True Match Foundation
This foundation should be a staple in everyone’s makeup bag, no matter what skin tone you have. The shades are extremely inclusive, ranging all the way from very light to very dark skin tones. The formula is thin and lightweight, whilst also maintaining a good level of coverage. Due to its lightweight consistency, it’s best applied with a damp beauty blender or sponge. This foundation can be purchased for only £9.99!
4. NYX Professional Makeup Cant Stop Foundation
This is one of the more pricey foundations on this list, coming in at £15.00. However, if you’re looking for a full-coverage foundation that doesn’t crease and lasts all day, this is the option for you! This foundation is perfectly suited to someone with oily skin, as it makes the skin appear more matte. However, it is also suitable for those with normal, dry, sensitive or combination skin as well. If its looking a bit too matte, try adding some highlighter on the high points of your face to add a bit more dimension.
5. Max Factor Lasting Performance Foundation
This foundation is a favourite for our pale peeps, as it does not make the skin look even remotely yellow or orange and instead has more of a pinkish undertone. A little goes a long way with this foundation, meaning it’ll last a long time! Despite its level of coverage, it still leaves the skin looking glowy, allowing the freckles you love to shine through! It’s priced at £9.99, making it an extremely affordable option!
6. Revlon Color Stay Foundation
This foundation is one of the best options for oily/combination skin or people with uneven skin tones, as it designed to have a matte finish. The heavy coverage is perfect for covering any blemishes, acne scars or dark circles, but will need some setting powder on top to set the foundation and stop it from creasing. This will keep your foundation looking perfect and last all day! £12.99 from Superdrug.
7. Gosh BB Cream
This BB Cream provides a good amount of light-medium coverage and is perfect for pale skin tones. It doesn’t have an orange undertone and is much easier to match to your skin than a regular foundation. It’s more for everyday wear than a heavy night-out or event makeup look, as the BB Cream formula is much lighter than foundation. The product also contains SPF, which is good for pale skin in the sun but doesn’t photograph particularly well. However, it still provides a good amount of light-medium coverage and costs only £9.99!
8. Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
The top of our list is the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, as it provides all the elements that make the perfect foundation for pale skin! It has an extremely hydrating formula and contains vitamins C, E, and B5, which all help the skin to glow. It has a very lightweight finish despite being full-coverage and doesn’t come out looking orange or cakey. Result! It comes in at a very fair price of £9.99.
So there you have it, that’s our list of the best eight foundations for pale girls who struggle to find the right shade. It’s worth mentioning that all of the foundations listed provide amazing shade ranges for all skin tones, and are definitely worth checking out!
