If you are a pashty, milk-skinned, pale gal – then you will really relate to this struggle.
It is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to find foundations that actually match pale skin. There is nothing worse than buying the palest shade available, only to find that it is actually an off-candyfloss pink shade when you slather it on.
The only thing worse than the dodgy foundation shades, is having to blend foundation all the way down your neck and your chest. Or just wear a massive scarf to cover your hideous foundation line.
the struggle when you buy the lightest foundation shade that Rimmel has AND IT IS STILL A BIT TOO DARK FOR YOU #palegirlproblems

Went to Debenhams so get a skin match and they don't stock a shade pale enough for me #palegirlproblems

Vampire Problems (aka #PaleGirlProblems): The highlight shade in a contouring set is a shade darker than your foundation

Where's the 'white', 'ghost' or 'vampire' shades at?
Dear almost every makeup company ever: This is not porcelain. This should not be your palest shade. ???? pic.twitter.com/TYDYecn989

Gals with dark skin will also relate to this problem, most foundation brands will have a plethora of 'shell', 'sand' and 'ivory' skin tone shades, with only one dark option.
