I did similar, recently. I wanted to embrace my paleness. Go all minimalist like Michelle Pffeifer in "Dangerous Liaisons".
I looked like I'd been dug up sitting in Dolland and Aitcheson trying on new frames for reading glasses. I binned the lot of it (Bobbi Brown) and returned to my Dr Hauschka Translucent Bronze Concentrate, double quick time. I now sport a very pink blusher over the top of it and just know that "natural" is not my thing!
I've tried bareMinerals. It made my skin itch and gave my skin the texture of parchment.
