I've found an excellent bronzer, if you can call it that, for pale skin is Laura Mercier's pressed powder in "Shimmer". Not too orange, brown, or pink, and it's difficult to overapply it. It makes me look less corpsey, when I'm going for that Land of the Living look.

Pale pinkies you should try Prescriptives Virtual Skin in Real Camelia. It's a blue/red base for cool toned pinky skin. It blends beautifully and is one of the few natural looking pale pink foundations out there. A cheaper option is L'Oreal True match in C1

Nars Balanced Foundation Mont Blanc is very good for very fair/pale skin. It's for those with pink undertones. But Nars have product for very fair/pale skin with yellow undertones too.
I would feel really grateful if someone could help me with this question.
Are YSL and Kevyn Aucoin base products good for pale skin?

haha but anyhow... im going to hong kong this summer (as in a year routine ) and hopefully i will able to buy some tinited moisturiser and cream blush that would work on me....

if youre cool toned, ive read that you can wear orange if its salmony/or has a bit of pinkness to it. stay away from brownish orange or reddish orange!

Jesus, wow! I bought some Max Factor Lasting Performance foundation yesterday in the third shade (light champagne) and THIS STUFF IS SO FREAKING PALE! It is almost white! Yea! Finally! My tan has been fading so I am too light for my usual Buff in Colorstay and I can't wear Ivory in Colorstay since it is so unbelieveably pink and orange to be called an Ivory shade. Anyhoo, I am just happy that I found a pale yellowy foundation

I bought some coty powder in naturelle today and it is lighter than the muted beige which I thought was super pale! It is so lovely to have a powder that makes me fair skin look porcelain instead of dirty, lol. Yea muted beige and naturelle coty!

MAC blot powder in light is veryvery pale - it's almost white. i've heard people complain that it makes them ghostly but it works well for me. it doesn't darken on your face after awhile like some other powders.

I know! Drives me crazy when powder gets too dark! And loreal's powders always turn dark by afternoon. Did you use the trumatch? that one is the worst offender.

I use Benetint cheek stain and Benefit Georgia powder, gives me a light glow without looking fake...

In summer, when I'm slightly tanned or go out, I use Clinique city block sheer tintend underneath (way too dark for me in winter). But I really have to spread it out thinnly, or you'll notice it

Apart from that, concealer on spots. Eyeshadow (Sanssouci) in "Coffee" and brown mascara.

i am pale as hell. i've tried most of the big brand powders and foundations, and i absolutely cannot live without my Benefit Get Even compact.it smooths everything out so nicely without looking too...well powdery.
