23 Pale Girl Problems: Girls with Porcelain Skin

1. There is NEVER a matching foundation. You will search forever and then it'll be discontinued because there's only you buying it.

2. A make up brand brings out a new foundation with thousands of shades and the lightest one is too dark.

3. Foundation is always named 'Ivory' or 'Porcelain' - and they're too dark.

4. You'll never find a foundation that is TOO light. If you do, you'll die on the spot!

5. You find an almost-matching foundation shade but it doesn't suit your skin type.

6. Highlighting with a concealer lighter than your skin tone - you're having a laugh aren't you? Tip-Ex.

7. Sunshine? Tanning? What is that? You'll burn, go bright red, and go back to pale.

8. You don't even bother fake tanning.

9. Warm/orange based bronzers look ridiculous - STAY AWAY!

10. 'Put your arm next to mine. Woah, you're so white.' Thanks, thanks for that, never heard that one before.

11. 'You look pale, are you sick?' Will be the name of the film they make about your pale life.

12. You want to injure tanned people that complain about being pale.

13. When people have a 'tanned' foundation and a 'pale' foundation, and their 'pale' is ten times darker than yours.

14. There's no such thing as 'too much SPF.'

15. You go on holiday somewhere hot and come back the exact same colour.

16. That isn't flashback in the photograph, you're ACTUALLY THAT white.

17. We're not goths or vampires.

18. If it's hot you will always find the shade.

19. If there's an option of sitting inside or outside - there's absolutely no debate. INSIDE!

20. Blue veins are a fashion accessory, aren't they?

21. Don't bother exercising, your face will be bright red in 3 seconds.

22. When you don't wear make up people think you're about to drop dead.

23. Nobody understands that you love your porcelain skin. Work it!

I love my fair skin, always have. I hope you do, too.


  1. Haha this is so true! Foundation matches can be an utter NIGHTMARE!!

    1. They're such a nightmare. Thanks for reading :) x

  2. Have you tried Dainty Doll foundations? Some of theirs are several shades too pale for me and I am super pale, they are actually tip-ex white some of them (no hyperbole!).

    1. I have but Dainty Doll has been discontinued, I have a few of the blushers. Illamasqua have a great colour selection for pale girls, thankfully x

  3. Haha I love this! I don't personally have pale skin but have a lot of friends that say things similar to this so i'll pass it along to them. I find pale skin gorgeous and timeless - I guess grass is always greener :). xx

    1. Thank you, lovely. I love my fair skin, there's just not enough white foundations lol x

  4. I can relate to like all of these! I was laughing all the way through!

  5. I love this hahaha! 19 and 22 are sooo true x

  6. Lol I agree with all of those! :)

  7. Love this. No. 14 was my favorite as I have SPF 70 that I use.
