Regarding skin tone I found this and it's a little helpful:

However I thought determining your skintone by seasons was a little outdated?

Thanks, Meg!

I don't know - I haven't cried or gone swimming with it on! However, I do use a dampened brush when applying it and it seems to blend the product quite nicely. It won't liquefy and stream down your face if it encounters water but it won't stay on entirely either would be my guess.

I think ELF does one, it's called Studio High Definition Powder.
These are the ingredients:
Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Silica
It's only £6 too.

What kind of mascara do you all use? I find that black looks a little to harsh (I'm a very fair blonde) and brown kind of enhances the veins in my eyes which doesn't look all that pretty. I find that burgundy looks very nice with light eyes and skin and I also like gold or bronze colored mascara to color just the tips of my lashes to make them look longer (or actually make them look as long as they really are). Any other suggestions?

Brownish black is pretty and not too harsh. Eggplant is also a pretty color as well.

forgot to say thanks for the powder recs

just came across this little tip about making fair skin look radient and healthy without adding a tan or golden sheen:
Quote:
All you need to do is mix whatever body moisturiser you like with a product like Benefit High Beam, MAC Strobe Cream, or Lauder Spotlight. Mix it to the intensity of sheen you want depending on event and time of day and apply it just like a moisturiser. The effect will be like you have polished your skin and those three products will be the right tone for your skin colouring.

Get your lashes tinted! I had my done for the first time a couple of years ago and I've never looked back. They really make a huge difference but look completely natural. I dont really wear mascara unless Im going out at night (I wear brown/black) so during the day I just curl my lashes and put either some vaseline or clear mascara on so they look glossy.

My legs are deathly pale... what are some tanning lotions that won't make me too dark and don't smell terrible?

All tanning lotions smell terrible unfortunately... but I love using a moisturizer with a bit of tanning stuff in it. It doesn't give you a tan right away but after a few applications it starts to show up. You can build it as much as you want. I use one by Dove. It exists in two versions, one for light and one for darker skin.

I go with very dark black (I'm ultra pale and blonde. Not platinum blonde more like honey blonde/strawberry blonde) but I like to highlight my green eyes a lot and I'm obsessed with having ultra long lashes. What I do is still use the super dark mascara but I use earthy shadow tones like a gold or bronze to make it look a little more toned down while still looking glam if that makes sense lol Colored mascaras just never did it for me because I find they don't make my lashes pop as much which, for me, is bad I like high impact lashes
