pale skin and powder
Finding a good powder was not easy for me. I am not as pale as I used to be, having spent 6 years in the Australian sun, but I am still pretty fair, and everything is too dark, and gives me Scary Orange Face. I was sent away from several make up counters empty handed (too pale for their products, and how they sneered) or got stuck with something that just wasn't very good. I don't want a bronzer (much to the horror of some make up counter girls, hehe) but I don't want to look like I have a face full of flour, either. Finally, I found one I am very happy with through Lily Satine's great blog.
T.LeClerc make a fantastic loose powder that is the right shade, doesn't irritate my skin and gives a perfect matte finish. For everyday, I just wear some over my sunscreen. I use the Camelia (which doesn't seem to be available at the moment, I hope it comes back) and couldn't be happier.
Oh, and Georgina of we won't go there gave me the OTT award – thanks very much! I answered these questions a little while ago so I won't do them again, and I pass them on to... any one who wants to do 'em!
Actually, I wanted to ask you: is there anything you want to ask me? Anything you want me to post? Just leave a comment and I'll see what I can do :)
