So to my fellow fair skinned beauties, we share the pain and the joy of finding a foundation that matches. Drug store foundation just doesn't do our skin justice and even higher end brands either aren't light enough or oxide weird on us. So when we find something that works for our color, undertone, and skin type we treasure it like fucking liquid gold. Just FYI my skin is lighter than NW15, with pink undertones and extremely dry and sensitive.
MAC FACE AND BODY FOUNDATION in N1 and WHITE // Now aside from the fact that N1 is slightly too dark for me and I have to lighten with white. This is a perfect water based formula with light to medium coverage that sits on the skin like a moisturizer and gives a dewy finish. It can kind of be a bitch to get the hang of as far as application, but can be easily mastered. I apply it with my hands let it sit for a few minutes then follow it up with a translucent powder.
MAC MINERALIZE MOISTURE SPF 15 in NW13 // This baby is a favorite when I am looking for slightly more coverage on the first application. It's another water based formula with sheer coverage but it has a SPF of 15 unlike the Face and Body which contains none and a pale girl has to protect whats she got, right? It does have a more extensive shade range,but I did find that it pulls more yellow. However, because of its sheer coverage it isn't an issue nor does it oxide weird. It's just dewy goodness.
SEPHORA MICROSMOOTH BAKED FOUNDATION FACE POWDER in PORCELAIN // My skin is not a fan of powder it makes it look drier than the freaking sierra desert, but this shit is awesome! You can layer it over liquid foundation for more coverage or wear it alone for a "oh shit I'm late but still going to look put together" day without emphasizing dry patches. I apply it all over with a kabuki or with a cosmetic puff. It does have a slight golden tone but haven't had issue since it blends so well into the skin.
NOTE// Please check your local Sephora for the powder, they may be stocked.
Hope this helps! Do you have any fair foundation favorites?
