Hey was wondering if anyone knows of any foundation brands that cater to very pale skin. It seems even when I choose a porcelain shade it is still to yellow or too pink for me. Any suggestions?
MAC & illumasqua. There is also a good European mineral brand called Lily Lolo. I'd love to be able to give you a drugstore option, but there just isn't one for the uber fair skinned.
I currently use MAC tinted moisturizer in Light and Studio Tech in NC15 for areas I need more coverage.

If you don't need a lot of coverage you could probably just get by with a translucent powder (: good luck! I get pale in the winter but I've always had olive undertones so I haven't faced this, but my sister Kelly (a different Kelly! So you naturally rock too (: ) is very fair with light brown hair and can't really wear foundation bc of that. @Kelly G, do you know any options for oily skinned fair bears? That's Kelly's other problem is. She's fair, and oily! Lol
Hmmmm, I always tell fair to go MAC. Oily skin, she can try Tech. It dries to a powder finish, or you can set it with powder. Studio sculpt offers a lot more coverage and is definitely *not* for dry skin, so it might work well with oily types. It's thick though so she might want to mix it with one of their liquid foundations to get a better consistency.
Seriously, tell your sis to go to MAC. They will hook her up. I went in, said "my skin is super dry, hates powder, and I need full coverage. Oh and I'm pretty much an NC10. Help!!!" For something like this, have her go early on the weekend or on a week day when they won't be busy so she can get quality time.
