^ porcelain pink is PERFECT for pale people! i use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones every day. it gives a very glowy pink-gold sheen. i love it! i've tried tons of highlighters and blushes... and it's so unique. it works over blush to give a dewier look as well, and you could use it on its own as a pale pink blush. i love it! the amount of product you get is pretty huge. i've been using mine daily for a few months now and it looks the same as when i bought it....haha. if you can find it, i don't think you can go wrong.

Nars orgasm is probably one of the single greatest products ever created! It's one of my staples

their SHEERTONE blushes are the best! i love Pink Swoon..
works on all hair colors..ive been blonde/brunette/red

i think, even though i liked the color of the Matte blush i got from MAC, it was just too opaque and heavy..cant go wrong with Sheertone

These are some of my holy grails for pale skin...

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation no.2
Giorgio Armani Fluid Sheer no. 0 (applied lightly under foundation, super subtle glow)
Giorgio Armani Creme Blush no. 2 (perfect warm, slightly glowy bronzer..apply it how you like...delicately or strongly, it really livens up your face)...

There are probably more, but I can't think of them right now, I just love these though!

I am super fair girl with cool undertones with brown hair & eyes. The best blush I've found is Pout's Pearly Queen Rouge. I also have Pout's Berry Babe and Cherie Tarte, they are very pigmented so you need a light application but they look BEAUTIFUL. I use a MAC 187 brush to get the dusted rosey look.
I use Neutrogena Ultra Sheer SPF 55 everyday as well.
I've found the Bobbi Brown makes the best foundation for my pale skin, I use 0 Porcelain.

I am a pale redhead with blue eyes.

Foundations - Lancome Adaptive or Color ID
Concealer - Bobbi Brown (but I must try the YSL per your suggestions!)
Eyeshadow - My everyday is Clinique duo - Ivory Bisque/Bronze satin
Powder - I love Laura Mercier loose powder in translucent
Lipstick - I'm wearing Lancome Juicy Tubes in Sun Bronze today, I also like CO Bigelow lip tint no. 1138
Eyeliner - Chanel black pancake liner, smudged with Clinique eyeshadow in bronze satin

Also I am going to get Nars "Orgasm" since eveyone here likes it so much -- although I use a pink Bobbi Brown with a little Chanel bronzer now.

blush-wise, some standbys for me are MAC sheertone shimmer in 'dollymix' (a bright pink with a bit of shimmer) and MAC cream blush in 'brit wit' (looks more neutral in the pan but gives such a natural flush when applied). both have worked on my pale skin, when i've had red, blonde, or brown hair. i try other blushes but i always reach for these two.

Just bought some new "red" lipstick to wear for all the holiday parties. It looks great on pale skin -- it is Bobbi Brown "Crimson Shimmer".

Im a classic redhead [= pale skin, freckles etc :p] finding a foundation that doesnt make my skin look orange has been my own personal holy grail. Im pretty impressed with Almay's Skin Stays Clear foundation in Buff. Very light and lasts all day.
