Foundation for Pale Skin

As the palest of the pale, I have struggled to find a foundation that matches my skin.  It is rare to find something at the drugstore that is even close.  The closest match I ever found was in Covergirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous foundation in 905 (check out my post on that product here).  When I started on Accutane I needed to switch to an oil-free foundation.  This re-sparked my obsession with finding the palest foundation in existence.  I went to Sephora, and swatched pretty much EVERY foundation in the store.  The heavens opened up when I finally swatched Make Up Forever's Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation in No. 15 Alabaster ($44).  This stuff is actually TOO light for my skin tone, gasp!  I tried mixing it with a new, oil-free foundation I found from Almay called Truly Lasting Colour ($15-$17).  My shade is 120 Ivory.  A 50/50 mixture of these two foundations is an exact match for my skin.  I have neutral undertones.




If you are super pale like me, it would be worth checking out the Make Up Forever foundation.  This could be mixed with any drugstore foundation to help you make it just that slight bit paler.
