The top 3 cheap and cheerful foundations for pale skin

Foundations for pale skin that won't break the bank

Yesterday, we had a chat about the best foundations for pale skin. All five are great in their individual ways but they share a flaw. All cost over €30. So, today I'm back with some more budget-friendly options.

Here are my top three:


Revlon - Colour Stay

This is a matte finish foundation that gives full coverage. I like it because I have very oily skin and it's hard for me to find a foundation that lasts all day.

It's a cream-based foundation of a medium coverage that builds to full depending on application. Also, as it is a range developed for HD film, it photographs so well which is always a bonus.

Rimmel's Match Perfection is the cheapest of the lot and it's not a bad one at all. I prefer a fuller coverage but if you are looking for a more natural finish and you've drier skin, this is the one for you.

So there you have it, my cheap and cheerful low budget foundations for pale skin. If any of you have tried anything weird or wonderful that we haven't mentioned, give it a shout out.
