Pale Appreciation Post.

17 Jul 2014

After my last post I felt I couldn't just rant about something I feel strongly about and not try and help steer you in the direction of some paler products available on the high street and in the drug store.

Starting with the base; it is spoken about a lot already that the shade range in the L'oreal True Match Foundation is great for those with pale skin offering a pale option for pink tones, neutral and yellow tones. I think this is a great one to try is you like medium to full coverage and if you're wanting more insight before going and buying this foundation may be have a read of my review on the foundation here.
If you're a fan of the low coverage BB Creams, The Body Shop's All-In-One BB Cream has a great shade for those paler. The is a new product so I'm yet to develop a valid opinion but judging on the colour of the shade "00" it is great for those with paler skin; it also says it is colour adapting which I will say I think it does to some extent and looks fine on my skin but I think if you do look into purchasing this, I think the more you work it in, the more natural the colour becomes.
Onto concealer; I have a few option with with starting with my Dainty Dolly Concealer in 002. When I first got this concealer I wasn't sure about my colour choice as, like I mentioned in my last post, it' hard to shop online for make up and when I did get this I was surprised it was so light. This is better for those with oilier skin as I do find it quite drying but it's a great option if my other options are still so dark as shade 002 is even a little too light for me! The famous Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer; I don't have to say much about this as most people know how good this concealer is by now and the shade is perfect for my skin. As you can tell from the photo, my collection concealer is a bit battered and I am in desperate need of a new one but it seems when ever I go into shops, my shade is always sold out so I thought I'd try another one and it's the 17 Stay Time 18 Hour Concealer in Extra Fair. I will say for Extra Fair, it isn't the fairest but I think that is down to the fact I always find yellow undertones darker seeing as I have pink undertones. Having saying that,this is a great all round concealer and has vastly become a staple in my everyday make up.
Of course you need something to set it all in place and I always play it safe and opt for a translucent powder and I have just recently started trying out The Soap & Glory "One Heck Of A Blot" Powder which is translucent. I am yet to again form a real opinion but I will say that it probably isn't the best for those with dry skin and so I would of obviously suggest the one and only Rimmel Stay Matter Powder which I absolutely love!
For Blush, highlight and contour, a great brand to try is Sleek's Face Form Kit. I am including this mainly for the shade of the matter bronzer as the other stay practically the same across the other shades in the range. I'm a massive fan of matte bronzers and back last year and earlier this year, it was the only bronzer I would use as I think it's the perfect contour shade for us pale girls. If you're not interested in the blush, then Sleek do a contour kit of just the bronzer and a small highlight so I'd check that out!
Finally- Lips. Lips is something everyone is free to choose but I think a red lip, whatever kind of red, is stunning on paler girls (and I never use the word stunning). This is something I did for my prom; while girls were topping up the fake tan, I wanted to feel confident in my pale skin and so I used a red lip to compliment my fair skin tone and I really loved it! I also think pale people are able to pull off a red lip on an everyday basis. The one shown in the photo is a 17 Stay Pout Lipstick in Infared.

So I hope this has been a helpful post for those of the pale nature Do you know any other good products or us pale girls? Don't hesitate to leave suggestions! I' m always on the hunt!
Hope you're doing great,
