I'm thinking of revamping my make-up and want foundation and makeup that has good staying power, suitable for a pale skin tone. Can anyone recommend a particular brand?

Illamasqua are great for pale skins. Their skin base is brilliant

Shiseido do excellent pale foundations. The 100 shade is very pale and has no yellow tones so looks natural on cool toned skin. I'm mid 40s and find it lasts all day.

Japanese and Korean cosmetics can be really good for super pale skintones, I really like Dr Jart and Missha BB creams, and Japanese and Korean sunscreens (Biore Watery Essence, peachy Missha) are ace. If you like mineral makeup, Lily Lolo is an excellent alternative.

Chanel foundations tend to be yellow-based, no good if you are pale and cool-toned: Dior and Nars cover this territory better.

I find Bobbi Brown really good for my pale skin. I use the skin foundation. I believe Chanel is great for pale skin too.
