My other favorite products for fair skin are;
YSL Touche Eclat in 01
Benefit High Beam
& Benefit's Boing Concealer in 01
Lucky you! Thanks for help, guys!
I had Touche Eclat, it's my fave YSL product, I used it mainly to cover my dark circles and it worked well. But it has one defect- it don't last too long

has anyone found a bb cream suitable for VERY fair skin?

Ive had a look at the estee lauder, clinique, mac and garnier ones but they are much too dark and orange for me.

Missha perfect cover BB in #13 works for very pale skin, but it runs very cool toned. You can buy it online and their website has special offers all the time. Just a warning, it is quite scented and could irritate sensitive skin

Try the Biotherm White D-Tox BB Cream. It's fair enough for me and I am the lightest shade in most foundations

So I am very fair skinned with cool undertones? Idk, I look best in silver instead of gold. I really want to start wearing lipstick as part of my daily routine. I have smaller lips and I feel when I wear bright colours I look ridiculous and am probably looking for something soft and naturalish. I don't want to go to the store and just get sold something trendy or whatever and also I want to splurge on a nicer brand so I don't want it to be wasted money. Does anyone have any suggestions at what colour family I should start with?

I don't have fair or pale skin at all, but I thought this post by Lisa Eldridge may be helpful for those who have a hard time finding a good foundation for pale skintones.

Foundation Solutions For Very Pale Skin

Finding the right shade of foundation is difficult enough but as many brands dont cover shades lighter than say Mac NC/W15, lots of girls with very pale skin are struggling to find a good match. I receive so many requests daily so I have put together a few solutions and ideas. I've tried to mainly include brands which are widely available. Hope its helpful x

Thought I would post this here as well so, I have these little spots and blemishes and I wanted to know which kind of concealers do you think are the very best? I have very pale and sensitive skin and now I use Touche Eclat from time to time to hide my little spots. I know it is not a concealer, but sometimes it does the job but now I want a real concealer
I know about the post dealing with foundations above mine but a concealer isn't the same as a foundation, right? :p

Any suggestions?

My favourite concealer for spots is the Bobbi Brown Face Touch Up Stick, it covers up everything

I use the Lancome effacernes concealer but the coverage isn't the best. But I personally like how lightweight and blendable it is and it covers what I need it too .

^ I own the Laura Mercier concealer and while it has great coverage the undertones don't really work with my skin. I find it works better as an under eye concealer than for spots, personally.

Definitely retract that statement, the makeup has started irritating my skin, so full of chemicals

I think I'm going to try Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation next, anyone tried it?
