Foundation and Concealer For Fair-Skinned Beauties

I do not know about you, but I really struggle to get a foundation colour to match. A couple of weeks ago, I went around nearly every makeup counter in Debenhams, trying the lightest shades on offer. All of which were either too dark, too orange/yellow, or too chalky, pasty and ashy. I feel like a lot of brands do not bother making really light or really dark shades, which makes it incredibly difficult to find a foundation that matches perfectly, especially in the drugstore where the colours are even more limited with a few exceptions.

Luckily, I have found a foundation shade and concealer shade that works well for my skin tone from the makeup brand NARS! I would say I have Normal/Combination skin that requires medium coverage in places with hormonal acne/occasional pimples.


The foundation I got is NARS Sheer Glow in the shade- Siberia. I previously used the shade Mont Blanc but despite the gorgeous texture of the foundation, I found it went orange on my skin. Siberia is the lightest shade they do and I do not find it going orange or yellow and it blends really nicely.

The concealer is the NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in the shade Chantilly, which again is the lightest shade they do. This works beautifully under the eyes. Vanilla is a very light colour that probably would work really well on most pale ladies but this one in particular seems to cover dark circles and create an illuminated look which I really like.

Both of these products are of amazing quality, but they are on the pricier side at £32 for the foundation and £23 for the concealer, but they are definitely worth the price tag as I have never found foundations quite as good any where else. The concealer is definitely a splurge as I have found some drugstore concealers which are really beautiful but for the perfect colour match this gives me, I am happy to spend an extra few pounds.

If you have very fair/pale skin, please do let me know what you like to use as it may help a few of us out! Thats it for today, see you soon!
