Oh my god I am so pale too. My fiance calls me ghost (charming)! It is so hard isn’t it, I don’t think I have much advice but I can emphathise. I still haven’t found a perfect foundation. There are some that are better than others but they are all too dark. I feel the make up industry really just caters for medium skin tones, pale and dark skinned people have no luck. When I’ve been to the MAC counter they have made me super orange, so now I steer clear!

What irritates me even more than this is when people ask me is I am going to fake tan for my wedding. Um… no. Are you going to bleach your skin? Kind of insulting. I do like being pale, it just isn’t most peoples idea of beauty I suppose!

I booked my make up artist and told her about my paleness, and she said that’s fine. I think she is quite pale herself actually which helps. I’ve attached a pic of me and my natural paleness below (on holiday in Crete – no chance of a tan of course!) and then the look I am going for beneath. Good luck! I’d be interesed to hear how you get



(I know she is not pale, but I want a natural but glam look like this adapted to my skin tone!)
