    Check out Kat Von D's makeup range which recently released in the Uk through Debenhams, her foundation is fuckin fabulous for the fair skinned.

    That's mad cheap but the AUD is really weak atm.

    You can wear liner and shadow but no mascara. You might also have to change your face cleanser depending on what you use ATM. Tbh I'd personally opt for a tint or LVL for day to day wear

    I've had them and to be honest, I didn't really get on with them. They looked amazing but I was stupidly paranoid to touch/rub/wash my eyes and so just felt a bit gross. I also got soooo bored whilst they were being put on and they didn't seem to last that long. I would do them again for a special, specific occasion (like Kaitey and her wedding ❤️) but otherwise I wouldn't bother.

    Me! I love them! Wouldn't get them for everyday wear (they're pretty expensive and take ages to do) but I had them done for our engagement party and I'm having them done on Thursday for the wedding too I've had the express ones done for holiday too but the individual ones are far, far nicer looking IMO (the express ones look more like strip lashes, the individual ones just look like you have amazing lashes)

    I'm the same. I always go for shades suited for pink/red undertones

    i don't mind paying a decent amount for a foundation that i know is going to do the job mostly i just use a bit of concealer and pop some powder on top as that doesn't flake on the cheeks.

    I had the Illamasqua colour corrector stick (it's like a mint green) and that was awesome! i still have it now and that's been a good wee while


    thanks for the list; i'll check some of those out my undertone is rather red so i find most foundations leave me with an orangy/yellow colour too hah

    For paleness I found Max Factor Face Finity 3-in-1 in Light Ivory a good colour but it could result in the patchy skin problem but this stopped when I started to use better face products and a primer, the primer I use is Natio Ageless.

    I also love love love Dr Lewinns for even cover but the lightest colour (ivory) is a touch too dark for me so I sometimes mix it with the MF and it's ok.

    Another one of my absolute faves for coverage is Lancome Teint Idole Ultra 24H, I can't remember what shade I got this in but I got it matched with my skin by a consultant. I reckon I'm going to get this again next time I'm out of foundation, it's 30 but flipping amazing on my skin.

    And going even further back I loved DiorSkin Forever in Ivory again pricey but man, it does not budge.

    Oh and just recently I found Bourjois 10 Hour Sleep Effect in Abricote Claire (lightest one) - the stuff is amazing, it's like putting on a BB cream/moisturiser but it gives a relatively good foundation coverage and is SO moisturising but with no shine.

    But I do find what works for one person may not for another, I know Illamasqua 115 is very pale with 100 being literally white so if you still struggle you can buy a white foundation and tone down a darker one.

    what foundation have you found that works for you? If anything it's finding a colour that matches too as i'm rather pale. I liked the look of Macs flawless finish but after a while i went all cakey on the cheeks _

    have you tried bare minerals? the coverage you get with that looks really nice but i don't know anyone first hand who uses it

    I used to have that problem with my cheeks as well, switching up my skincare regime helped that, also using a primer seriously helps me.

    i'm yet to find a foundation that works nice on my skin! they all seem to flake on my cheeks ___

    there is a pretty Limecrime lipstick; like a pinky/coral colour. It looks so pretty on!

    yes, totally agree with one or the other

    I go for bright eyes or lips never both. I don't wear eyeshadow often so don't pay much for it. Lippy I have a few good brands but thought I'd try out some more unusual colours. I do buy high end foundation and mascara though. Cheaper ones never work well for me :(
