When you have pale skin, every little flaw seems visible -- acne, small veins, discoloration under the eyes -- so you really want that even coverage.

The best foundation for pale skin will give you all of this and more.

You want a foundation that not only makes your skin look even, but one that makes it look luminous and bright. In addition, you want a product that won't look like it is cake-y on your skin.

Finally, you want prevent further breakouts on your skin. Even women who don't have oily skin can get acne from foundation because of the fatty acids in the product. So an oil-free foundation is ideal.

This hub gives you a suggestion for the foundation that will cover all three of these needs -- an Origins product that we have discovered is the best foundation for pale skin. We have included a photo of foundation color swatches as well.

  • It has optical diffusers that adjust the light on your face so that your coverage is even and bright. It helps acne marks, veins, and discolored skin blend away.

  • It is oil-free and noncomedogenic/non-greasy so that your skin will not be prone to further breakouts while you are wearing it. This helps prevent pink and red spots from clouding up your porcelain skin.
