Perfect foundation? Just too orange?

Hello everyone!

I'm sure all you pale girls out there will have the same problem I do. You buy a foundation, put it on - the finish is perfect, it lasts forever - but its too orange!

Recently I bought Collection 2000's Natually Matt foundation in Blonde 2, their second palest shade. For £2.99, its a great little foundation, good for oily skin and perfect for my festival trip as it comes in a squeezy tube.

But all the shades were shockingly orange. I picked Blonde 2 because it looked ok, but on getting home I realised it was just as bad. Well, I have the solution!

 I looked back into my goth past and remembered - white foundation!

I picked up Stargazer's White Foundation for £4.50 out of my local fancy dress shop, it retails online for £3.50. Barry M also do a white foundation but at £6 odd, it seemed a bit steep for mixing.

It mixed well with my Collection 2000 foundation and is just the right colour now! I still have loads of white foundation left - perfect for when my foundations are too dark for me in winter!

I think I'm on to a winner here, no more oompa-loompa face now!

Hope you found this helpful! Have you ever had problems with orange foundations? xx


  1. I always have to lighten my foundations, especially if it's a Rimmel one, they always seem to be too orange/dark for me. :/

  2. I'm the same! Most foundation are just way to dark and orange for me but I find GOSH do the best foundation for pale girls like me :-)

  3. This is a great idea! I often have this problem, or find that the lightest shade is just not light enough. Nars sheer glow in Siberia is pretty close to the perfect shade for me though, I'm sticking to that at the moment, but it is a tad expensive xx

  4. Ive got this as a mixer too! Just not keen on it, I find it goes powdery and dries too quickly xx

  5. Such a good idea, I have a few foundations that are just a tad too dark for me. Nothing worse than orange streaks!


Thanks for all your lovely comments! :)
