Can't find pale makeup.. Cordelia's Mom 33 kids; Bakersfield, California 3685 posts

I have a hard time finding makeup light enough with a yellow tint. What do you use? I cannot use pink undertoned ones, I look ridiculous. I know I can go to MAC and find some but I'm looking for cheaper alternatives. Right now I use Revlon Colorstay in 150.

Look for green undertones. Green will cancel out the redness in your skin, and it's a bit more common.

I use Maybelline Fit. I really don't know if it's the right colour you're looking for though, haha. I think it's neutral (I'm make up dumb) I use 115 for liquid foundation and 110 for pressed powder.

I meant I look ridiculous with pink because the rest of my body is so obviously yellow/olive. I haven't heard of green undertone makeup (besides what professionals have).. I have some green tinted primer for the red splotches I have though...

Bare minerals makes one with a yellow tint. I have a yellow color to my skin, and they had one to match perfectly.



I go into ulta and have them match me with something.

I've used that too and they have had the closest match to my skin so far besides MAC. I don't like the way it looks after a while of wearing it because my skin gets a little too oily and I feel like its sooo hard to get even coverage with it because the powder is so strong :/

Have you tried the matte formula?

Yes. I like the way it looks but around my nose gets oily and makes it all crack around my nose it's not cute :[

Yeah, I have an oil problem too. I bought a primer that helps with my oil. But between the primer and the bare minerals its probably cheaper to just get Mac lol.



I just love how the BM feels, and I love the 'warmth'.

Yeah, I'm thinking I'm just going to have to go to MAC. I was hoping to just find something from walmart. Lol. MAC stays pretty good on oilyness.

The only thing that I've ever liked from walmart was the FIT me makeup. It's a liquid, but it matched my color pretty well.



The only thing I don't like about buying it at Walmart is you can't test it out lol.
