Fun story, I hate foundation. Is that weird? I don’t know why I just feel like it takes me F-O-R-E-V-E-R to find one that works, does what it says and matches my very light skin tone. There’s a reason there are only six of the best foundations on my list and that’s because when it comes to them I am SUPER picky and I always, always go back to these guys depending on the situation. Whenever I try something new out I am almost instantly unimpressed and just swap out for one that I know is amazing, which is always one of the six we’re going to talk about today. As I write this I am actually trying out three different foundations and I’m hoping at least one of them can make it into the best pile and maybe this list can grow in a few months. For now though, the best foundations that work for this pale gal are right here on this list!
Stila Perfect & Correct Foundation • Stila • $44.00 – I love this because it’s super lightweight, offers buildable coverage and gives you a glowing look. This is perfect for all skin types. Perfect and Correct reads and reacts to the skin’s needs and targets skin imperfections to correct them. I can use this on the hottest day in the Summer and coldest day of Winter and get the same perfect results.
Wet n Wild CoverAll Cream Foundation Fair • Wet n Wild • $2.79 – This is a favorite because of the matte finish. Super lightweight & buildable as well. This offers medium to full coverage and really helps to cover up an blemishes. When I’m using this I know I don’t have to put concealer anywhere except for my under eye circles which need a bit more love because this does a fantastic job of covering everything. If nothing else this needed to be on the best foundation list because of price alone! HELLO fabulous & affordable!
Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Liquid Makeup SPF 18 Creamy Ivory 120 • Maybelline • $11.99 – I have a fan of this one from the very beginning! Instantly erases lines and wrinkles, masks blemishes and gives your skin a tight look. I haven’t found a shade in the lightest of colors that really works for me but I can mix two and get a pretty good match but the darker shades work awesome when I am spray tanning! This is fine for all skin types as well.
Revlon Nearly Naked Makeup • Revlon • $9.99 – This one is on my Makeup For Pale Skin list because it’s SO perfect for us lighter girls. I truly love this foundation and if I had to pick one forever, it’d most likely be this!! With buildable coverage and seamless blending, you are sure to cover flaws and perfect your skin’s tone and texture. No heavy cakey or greasy mess.
Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup Buff • Revlon • $13.79 – Buildable coverage from super light to full. It goes on super smooth and is extremely easy to blend. This has the longest wear time out of all of the foundations on this list. Feels ultra light when it’s on and great for all skin types.
Chanel VitaLumiere Aqua – $45 – Ok, so this is probably the most expensive foundation I have ever bought in my life and to be honest when I tried out the samples (the counter will send you home with a weeks worth!) I wanted to hate it because ZOMG. Unfortunately for my wallet, I fell in love. This is a cult favorite AND with good reason. Super light and goes on super smooth! The fluid formula has a soft, water-light texture, and comes in 10 shades that match perfectly to skin’s undertones, whether pink or beige.
