Pale girls represent!  After years of ridicule for my inability to tan, I've decided to make it my mission to make pale skin the thing.  Feel free to join me in my cause.  As for a makeup suggestion, Max Factor makes some very pale foundation shades.  Usually I'm good using the palest shade offered, but I went two or three shades up in the Max Factor chain (facefinity I think).  That was even far too pale for me.  Other than the color issue, I liked the makeup.  Might be worth checking out.

Just an FYI I picked up years ago, if the foundations are too orange-y, go with a blue based color.  Just like in haircolor, some people need to use a cooler tone.

Not to be a broken-record, but it's what I know.  For discoloration spots (age spots, etc.) Avon makes a cream to help lighten them.  They also have some really great sunblocks that I've seen even the palest children use and not turn the least bit pink!  They also have a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if you get the wrong color or don't like the way it smells, feels, whatever - you can get your money back - even if you've used it a couple of times!  I'm not positive, I'll have to check on it, but I don't think they test on animals and the beComing line (a little pricier) is more along the "natural" lines.  Just a thought.

feel free to messsage me if you have any questions.  They do have some paler shades.


hope it helps!

Lemon juice and cucumber juice are supposed to be good for fading dark spots or scars so it should be okay for making you paler. Lemon juice is stronger than cucumber juice, but it may irritate your skin more. It seems like anything that's made to fade dark spots or scars should also work. Just make sure they don't irritate your skin. Chemical peels may also help.

I buy the lightest shade Jane makes. their ivory seems to be the lghtest ont he market but still a little to dark for me. there's a website called lulu cosmetics, I think. They sell white liquid concealer. I mix the two until I get the propper shade. Don't use to much of the white though or you look ghouly. I like the snow white/ silent film look. Natural paleness not bottled goth. hope that helps a little.



I have a bunch of vintage linens for trade. Looking for neat halloween fabrics, day of the dead stuff, star wars stuff.

wow. you guys are all really great. thanks for all your help!
  and i found a foundation by Benefit that matches my skin tone exactly. the people at the counter were really nice too! i even got a free appointment with them!  Cheesy
(except for those with the michael jackson comments. you can all be eaten by lemurs, for all i care.)

You can tell by the state of my room that they let me out to soon,
and that the pills that i ate came a couple days too late...

ohh i'm jealous...to an extant.
i'm naturally a honey sandy beige so i don't burn imediately but i prefer my paler shades because my skin looks healthier. ...

anyone know how to make a fashionable sunhat? all the ones around my area look very, farmer or cowboy like.

Wow. I remember back in the Ooollllld days, when PUNK was new (wheez) Wink and what we used to do, in addition to all the other stuff, was to take the regular LOOSE face powder, and add baby powder to it. Lots of it has a tiny tiny bit of a sheen to it, and it makes it look even cooler.Then thruout the day, u can easily touch up w/ just a dab out of one of the travel-size bottles of baby powder.
We didn't even have Goth back then, but I'm down with the rainbow of hues God gave us. Diversity is GOOD.  Shocked)

it's SO not about me.

if you want to be pale that bad you could just trade skin with me...?? oh, if only that was possible. i'm extremely pale because even with a whole bottle of sunscreen on i still burn in like 5 minutes lol...so i'm just avoiding sun entirely. doesn't go too well with my parents though. "go get some fresh air! go knit outside!" ugh.....
ooh, funny paleness story: once my mom got this theatrical makeup catalogue and i was looking at the foundations to see if they had one as pale as me. i got super excited because there was one pretty much exactly the same colour, but then i looked and the name of it was "death flesh". heh.

there's plastic on the furniture to keep it neat and clean,

SPF 50 is a girl's best friend....also, one thing i discovered by accident, peroxide, just your standard drug store 75 cents a bottle stuff, put it on a cotton ball and rub it over your skin. I found this out while dumping it over some sort of wound for a week, where it ran over my arm was conciderably lighter than the rest of my skin...

That might dry out your skin, just use moisturizer if you wanna do that. Anyways!

Just go buy a $5 or $10 foundation that is one or two shades lighter than your skin color. I wouldn't suggest any lighter than that!

Oh, and please don't use halloween cream makeup Sad That would break my heart.
