Hello my sweets! As you all know I am a very pale faced girl, hence my blog name. After years of wanting olive coloured skin that tanned in the warmth, I have finally become accustom to my fair limbs and face and learnt to embrace being pale. However, when it comes to make-up and other beauty buys it is often hard to find the perfect shade that doesn't make me look orange or yellow. So I have decided to do a little series of beauty posts about the products I use, which are suitable for light and pale skin.
Benefit The Pore Fessional- I love this Pro balm, although a bit pricey for me at £24.50. If like me your skin shows every pore and big purple bags live under my eyes then I would recommend this.
Dainty Doll Powder # 001 Now That I've Found You-Dainty Doll is obviously a range designed for pale skin and this mineral powder is great for setting my makeup and letting my face look even in complexion.
Bourjois Blush #54 Rose Frisson-My cheeks are pretty pink most of the time, but if I am wearing a base then it is important to not look too washed out. So I will apply a little sweep of rose to my cheeks before an evening event or Sunday stroll.
ueen Of Hearts-This is the lipstick I always rebuy. I think red lipsticks work really well with pale skin and this deep red colour I feel suits me well. I wear it most days and it lasts a long time for such a cheap product.
YSL Lipstick #1 Brun Insecure- Probably the most expensive lipstick I own, but I am so in love with this shade.It is deep and smooth and perfect for Autumny weather, and the YSL packaging is beautiful.
Dainty Doll #007 Stripped-I am not a big fan of nude shades, but this Dainty Doll lipstick works really well in the sun. It is just visible enough to give my pasty skin a small glow, perks up my features and has a lovely feminine vibe.
Kate Moss For Rimmel #107-All of the Kate Moss matte shades I love, but the 107 shade I picked out is my favourite. Pale skin doesn't really suit a lot of pink shades, but this is just dark enough with a red tinge to make it acceptable.
Collection 2000 Eyeliner - My favourite liquid eyeliner in the whole world! It is so cheap and lasts for a really long time. I have used this to draw my flicks for the past five years or so, I can't reccommend it enough.
Elizabeth Arden Eyeliner Gel In Brown-Although this is meant to be for eyes I use it to fill in my eyebrows. The colour perfectly suits my brows and the little brush makes it easy to shape them.
Has anyone else tried any of these products? I would love to hear any more recommendations for pale skin.
