There are so many of us out there who struggle to find the perfect shade of foundation. Whether you're an English rose or a dark-skinned beauty, the struggle is real. Considering my background my skin tone is surprisingly fair and I often find it difficult to find a base that matches both my face and neck and doesn't oxidize halfway through the day. Over the years I've tested a lot of foundations and I finally have a solid collection all with different finishes but most importantly that suit my ghostly skin!
The Best Foundations For Pale Skin
The Ordinary Serum Foundation | 1.0N | I thought I'd start with the most affordable option as it's extremely hard to find a pale foundation for less than £10. This has been out for a while now but it's still one of my favourites. It has a medium-buildable coverage and a lovely satin finish that looks like skin. I tend to reach for this when I have a lot of redness as it's really concentrated and is great for evening out my skin tone. It comes in 21 shades so there should be a shade for everyone! 

EX1 Invisiwear Liquid Foundation | 1.0 | This has a slightly thicker formula but when blended out it looks like silk. The shade I have is fair with a yellow undertone which is great for counteracting redness and pigmentation. A little goes a long way and it has become my favourite foundation for when I want minimal effort but a flawless, polished finish. 

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream SPF50 | Fair | Obviously it wouldn't be right if I didn't include this gem. This was probably the first foundation I bought that actually matched my skin. It also has my favourite finish in the world and is the base I opt for 90% of the time. It helps even out my skin whilst still being really fresh and glowy and I love that it blurs my pores and imperfections without looking cakey. You need to try this if you haven't already! 

Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick | Alabaster | I'm not a massive fan of stick foundations but I love the formula and finish of this, plus it's great if you have very fair skin. Bobbi Brown is one of the best brands for catering to a wide range of skin tones! I love how easy it is to build up the coverage or sheer it down depending on the finish you want. It's also perfect for travelling! 

Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation | 110 | Everyone and their dad went on about this brand when it launched but I held back as I wanted to see what the majority of people thought before I purchased anything. The foundation has so many raved reviews but the main thing people were praising was the vast shade range. I have the second lightest shade and it's actually the only base that's ever been a tad too light for me! Once everything is blended in and set with powder it looks fine but if you are extremely fair (like paper white) then Fenty is the only way to go! Their Killawatt Highlighters are also stunning!
