Making Products Work For Those With Pale SkinMarch 26, 2018
If you have light, pale skin, it can be an absolute nightmare trying to find facial make up products that suit your tone. For many women, even the lightest shade in make up ranges is often too dark or too orange-colored. Despite this being a continued problem for literally thousands of people, it is an issue that the cosmetics industry has failed to target. Although specific makeup lines for people with pale skin do exist, they tend to be pricey or sacrifice quality of the product in the hopes that the lightness of color will be reason enough for people to buy.
Address the Pale Skin Issue
There are a couple of ways of getting around the problem. First, you could try using a facial bronzer. Used sparingly, a bronzer will add enough color to your face to allow you to use normal foundations and concealers, though the effect can be patchy if not blended thoroughly. There’s also the issue of having your facial skin tone match the rest of your body, and if you cannot be bothered to fully self-tan regularly, this isn’t an option.
It is worth trying to ‘dilute’ the color of a facial make up the product, to make it paler and therefore more suitable for your skin tone. Remove some of the normal product from its tube or tub, and then mix in a white facial moisturizer. This should spread the pigment of the foundation around, and make the overall effect appear lighter and more suitable. Just remember that you may need to use extra face powder, as the added moisturizer may make your face appear shinier than normal.
