    Foundation

    Hello! I'm new here and I've been browsing around and you all seem to know a great deal about make-up. So my question is, I'm very fair skinned, like I need white out type stuff haha, I can never find a good combination of right shade and good coverage. Any recommendations? Thoughts? Thanks

    (Moved to Recommendations.)

    How much coverage do you want (sheer, medium, full)? What sort of finish do you want (dewy/luminous, satin, matte)? What's your skintype?

    * MUFE Ultra HD in Y205 (I'm considerably fair-skinned myself and this is too pale even for me! This particular shade runs a bit peachy.) or R210

    * NARS Sheer Glow in Siberia or Mont Blanc (the SG range runs yellow. Despite the name, it's neither sheer nor glowy. More a medium-ish coverage, satiny finish.)

    * Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX01. (It's said to have a peachy undertone, but personally, I've never noticed that. I use it as a spot concealer, but you can use it as a cream foundation. Close to full coverage, satin finish.)

    * Illamasqua Skin Base in any shade from 2 to 6 or so. (Shade 1 is white. I've never used this, but my understanding is a little goes a long way. I think it may be more of a matte finish, though? But you could mix in a liquid highlighter to add some glow.)

    * Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation in 012. (It and the other lighter shades are too peachy for me, but the texture is quite nice. A little similar to MUFE, from what I've been able to tell, and a bit more expensive. That said, their website offers sample sets so you can try it out first.)

    * I've also long heard good things about Bourjois Healthy Mix, and they recently added another light shade -- 50 -- to their range. (50 and 51 are the lightest.)
