As the palest of the pale in London, we ended up discussing what make up suits our skin tone, over a coffee in Starbucks (well, steamed caramel milky goodness, but that’s almost the same thing). We came up with this little guide of must-haves we think that every pale girl should have in their makeup bag! Ditch the fake tan, summer is definitely over (if it even started) and embrace your pale skin this winter!
Finding a pale foundation to suit your skin without looking ghostly can be a challenge. Unless your budget can stretch to a MAC foundation, we love Dream Matte Mousse in ivory. It can dry out your skin a little, if you’re prone to drier skin, so we recommend using a moisturising primer underneath such as Smashbox Photo Finish primer. When using thais foundation, we like to set it with a powder, such as a Max Factor product, or an MUA powder, a steal at £1!
Although a bold lip colour can look good, why not opt for a nude shade during the day? Jaye uses The Body Shop’s Delipcsious lipsticks, in shades 03 and 07. These colours not only have a fantastic glossy finish, they also moisturise your lips and they last the day. Perfect for the cold weather! They also smell amazing! For a more glossy look however, she uses Stila lipglosses, her favourites are Kaleidoscope and Peach!
