Best Foundations for Fair Skin

by Molly Gardner

Every year about this time, after spending months totally covered up, I have a moment where I catch a glimpse in the mirror and realize that I am a very pale lady.  As my friend Meryl said to me once, “I can see your circulatory system from the outside.”  Honestly, I can’t stop laughing at that.  It’s so true – ask any pale kid!

It can be tricky to find foundation that matches such fair skin, so I’ve rounded up my favorite foundations for paler skin.  Here are my favorites!


1 | Sephora Airbrush Spray Foundation, shade Light. $28 for 2.5 oz

2 | Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Moisture Foundation, shade 002.  $70 for .71 oz.

3 | Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation, $38 for 1.7oz

4 | Tarte BB Tinted Primer in Fair. $35 for 1 oz

5 | L’Oreal True Match Lumi N1-2 or W1-2, $11.99 for 1 oz

6 | Kat Von D Lock It Tattoo Foundation, shade 46.   $34 for 1 oz

Love it! Last night I organized my makeup leaving only my most used makeup out on my bathroom counter which included 5 different foundations, but now after reading this post obviously I need all of these too. #spenditall

Being a freckle-faced auburn-haired Woman Of A Particular Age, I love the peaches & cream complexion. There’s a bit more color than the porcelain complexion, which is beautiful, too. Now, to find a foundation for this WOPA’s oily skin that doesn’t settle into those pesky fine lines & wrinkles

Having stumbled on your truly glamorous blog, I am rediscovering the joy of being a girl. Thank you for this post for us fair-skinned beauties and for all you do and share with us. You are gorgeous! <3
