Pale inexpensive concealer (or tinted moisturiser) for teen DD?
DD has bad spotty skin at the moment-I've offered her some of my make up a few times recently when we've been going out but she says it looks orange (I am not orange ) but I'd like to get her something lightweight to try. She's got naturally white blonde hair/blue eyes and is v. pale-can anyone recommend anything that doesn't cost the earth?
Am super duper pale, bordering on pure white and Boots No 7 et al doesn't even touch the sides for me! Just orange.
If she is super duper pale, she may find that theatrical brands like Kryolan fit the bill (I'm the shade 'deathly flesh!'. Charles Fox in Covent Garden is amazing for pale skinned ladies.
Illamasqua (also stocked in Charles Fox) is also a good one.
Irrespective of shade, tell your lovely DD to look up the Lisa Eldridge pin point spot concealing technique. No need for her to cover up her gorgeous, young, glowing, non-blemished skin with heavy duty products
The Collection lasting perfection concealer is very good and inexpensive. It's the best drugstore/high end concealer imo. I'm pretty pale and I used the shade fair 1 (I think that's what it's called) when I used it.
Another definite vote for the Collection lasting perfection concealer, its fantastic and inexpensive, absolutely worth trying. NARS radiant creamy concealer is wonderful and the palest concealer i have found so far ( with lots of trial and error), its more lightweight than the collection concealer, and is also paler - about £23 though, so pricey.
I have a 19 year old DD who suffers from skin problems as well as being extremely pale. I agree with pp that Boots No 7 is no good for pale skins and that Collection concealer in lightest shade is very good. DD also uses Estée Lauder foundation which is certainly not cheap but suits her skin.
