The Best Foundations for Really, Really Fair Skin (Like, Glow in the Dark)
Does your skin tone fall somewhere between "ghost" and "paper?" Our resident pale-faced expert found the best foundation brands for you
Illamasqua's Skin Tint comes in a glorified white-out shade (seriously, it is snow white) that you can mix with a too-dark foundation to bring the shade down. If you want something a little dewier, Lush Feeling Younger Skin Tint, $18.95, increases the paleness of the foundation and adds a touch of glow. Designed to be a highlighter, it also adds a nice glow when blended onto cheekbones and under your brows.
Simple advisory board member and celebrity makeup artist Gita Bass also recommends mixing in a few drops of a color corrector if your foundation is the wrong undertone. She says the most common case is foundation looking too pink, so look for a yellow or gold color corrector to balance it out. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics' Airbrush Foundation comes in five color correcting shades: olive, blue, red, yellow and black. They look like something you would finger paint with, but adding a few drops can make a world of difference in a foundation that is too pink or yellow.
