My Top 5 Products For Fair Skin || Tips for a Bright Smooth Complexion

A lot of you ask me about tips for fair skin, and how to keep it looking porcelain & milky smooth.  To be completely honest, everyone has something that they feel they need to work on more than other things.  While I've never felt a struggle with my figure, and am able to maintain a body I'm happy with pretty easily (although I want to start doing more!), skin has been slightly more of a conflict for me.  I had a light case of acne when I was a teen, and so I now have a few scars as well as naturally oily skin and larger pores.  I'm not the type of girl who prefers going without skin products and makeup!  Along the way, I've learned a few tips and found some truly life-changing gems that help me to achieve more of the powdery smooth finish I love.  

Of course the first rule of thumb, (for anyone, but especially for pale skin) is daily SPF!  Next, I recommend cleansing & toning daily, and exfoliating 2 times per week.  Keep in mind, my skin is combination and I mainly prefer a matte finish.  I sometimes dust just a touch of highlighter for a little glow only on my cheeks and nose.  If I do, I use MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Beaming Blush, MAC Snowball Shimmer Powder or NYX Love You So Mochi.

Here are my TOP 5 Brightening/Whitening Products for Pale Skin:

3. Mac Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid Foundation SPF 15 $29 & Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation $35 {both in NW13}  - I have combination skin and I love both of these foundations.  Studio Waterweight is just a little more hydrating, so if you have dry or combination skin this might be a good option for you.  I'm loving it, as it has a higher SPF & balances my dryness while still doesn't cause oiliness.

5. Coty Airspun Loose Face Powder $6.99 This is my absolute favorite powder and it's only $6.99.  It eliminates shine, and in the most beautiful, angelic way.  It has been around since 1935 and they still use the same formula.  It also lasts all day - I never need to reapply!  I couldn't live without this.

*Update - I've also been impressed with this product from NYX Cosmetics - it neutralizes redness & blotchiness for a smooth complexion!
