Being a pale girl myself, people often ask me how I manage to find a foundation to suit my skin tone. The answer is that, although I rarely wear foundation, I have found one that is perfect for my pale skin tone – the GOSH X-Ceptional Wear Foundation in 11 Porcelain.
I received a comment on one of my YouTube videos the other day which read: “I swatched the GOSH foundation you use today in Superdrug – you must be transparent!”. She didn’t mean it offensively and I didn’t take any offense whatsoever – I love being pale! But it did highlight to me that an almost shockingly pale foundation is needed for us super fair-skinned girls.
I know I’ve reviewed this product before, so this won’t be so much a review as an explanation of why the foundation is so good for pale skin.
Like many other pale girls, I have cool-toned skin which this foundation is perfect for. Some people have told me in the past that this is still a little too ‘orange’ for them, but I personally have never experienced that. I use a stippling brush to apply the foundation and it looks flawless every time.
Here is a photo of me on a night out wearing the foundation:
As you can see, the foundation photographs well and doesn’t make you look washed out – just nice and even. I actually really like being pale; I think pale skin is underrated, with fake tan and bronzed looks being favoured. Don’t get me wrong – some of my best and most beautiful friends pull off fake tan wonderfully, but it’s not for me.
The foundation costs around £7.99 from Superdrug, and a little goes a VERY long way. I have worn it on a few nights out and have over-estimated how much I need on the back of my hand every time. Great value for money and great for pale girls!
