Pale Girl Problems

P1210012

As much as I love my pale my skin, my Irish heritage does cause some beauty problems!

1. Finding an affordable foundation that doesn’t turn me orange.

High end brands can be just as bad but most have slightly better shade range however finding a high street foundation my shade has been almost impossible if you are having the same issue here are some high end and high street suggestions L’Oreal True Match in Rose Ivory, Rimmel Wake Me Up in Porcelain, Illamasqua Skin Base, NARS Sheer Glow.

2. Being able to contour without looking like you applied mud to your face.

As with foundation contouring can be difficult for us pale girls with a lot of popular products – Benefit Hoola i’m looking at you – giving us muddy results however I have found a few products which are fantastic Β which you can read here.

3.Burning even in the English sun.

As soon as the sun starts peeking round the clouds on goes the factor 5o otherwise I will be lobster red by the end of the day.

4. People not believing you’ve been on holiday because you just don’t tan.

I honestly don’t tan even if I do burn I just go straight back to white, so to stop with the annoying questioning about my inability to tan I often opt for a bit of the fake bake. My favourite brand to use is Cocoa Brown. You can create a realistic tan and it doesn’t turn you Oomph Loompa orange.

5. People asking if you are feeling alright when you’re not wearing make-up.

‘You look awfully pale are you alright’ ‘Yep that’s just my face without all the contouring and blush’

Have you encountered any of these #palegirlproblems

  1. Hey πŸ™‚ As a pale girl myself i know the struggle with the foundation search just too well. What i found is that korean brands suit my skin color better and are more appropriate for what i’m looking for in a foundation / bb cream. Have you tried any korean products before? If not, you might want to look into that market. Misscha & Skin79 make great stuff.

    And omg how annoying is it, when every second person is suddenly concerned you might be sick, just because you’re only wearing mascara, instead of a full makeup face?! πŸ˜›
