The Foundation Every Pale Girl Needs


I think every pale girl can relate to the struggle of finding a new foundation. They’re either too dark, or too yellow etc… So, I thought I’d share with y’all my holy grail foundation product that is perfect for so many things.

I always keep a bottle of the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation in the shade 42 light. It is honestly the only foundation that I have ever found that is actually as light as my skin tone (almost paper white). It is useful in so many ways, here are a few ways I use it:

By itself

This foundation is super full coverage¬†like it will cover any imperfection or discoloration without the need for a concealer. It is that good. On those weeks where my skin is freaking out (because of one thing or another) I slap this baby on and you wouldn’t even know how bad it is underneath. *Disclaimer* You don’t need a lot of product. Normally just 1 1/2 pumps will do the job if you slather it on, it will get a little cakey.

To add coverage to other foundations

I mix this foundation with everything when I don’t want to be full coverage, but my other foundation isn’t quite opaque enough to cover what I need it to cover.

To lighten other foundations

I’m sure every pale girl has the problem where the swatch in-store looked fine, but the minute you put it on in real life it looks like you just decided to spray tan your face. Not cute. Half a squirt of this mixed into your darker foundation will lighten it up so you don’t have to go through the trouble of finding something else.

To tone other foundations

The website description says the “Light 42” it has a pinkish undertone, but to me, it seems like the undertone is very very light (almost unnoticeable) I like to mix this in with foundations that are just about the right shade, but the wrong tone to make sure I don’t look orange when I hit daylight.

As you can see, this foundation can be very versatile, I hope this helps you if you’re in a foundation rut, and nothing seems to be working! Let me know if you’ve tried it and what you think! Also, what are your favorite foundations?
