Best Foundation For Pale Skin

I Tested 10 Foundations For My Pale Problem Skin — Here Were the Results

I Tested 10 Foundations For My Pale Problem Skin — Here Were the Results

Since I began wearing makeup around age 12, I've had endless trouble finding the perfect foundation. I'm cool-toned and pale — like, very pale — and I have a bit of problem skin. Namely, mild adult acne, some hyperpigmentation on my cheeks, an oily t-zone, and a couple of aggravating dry patches just beneath my jawbone. As you can imagine, slapping on a little cover-up is a pretty necessary part of my daily routine. But finding that perfect shade and formula? That's another (slightly frustrating) story.

I've noticed that makeup brands tend to market only light to medium shades, which means you can usually find me frantically trying to buff away an orange jawline before running out the door every morning. So when I was given the opportunity to test 10 foundations for porcelain people, I jumped pounced at the chance. Ahead are the varied results of my experiment. And in case you were curious, yeah, I did finally find my holy grail product. Praise be!
