I have veryyy pale/fair skin and it's hard for me to find makeup I can wear. I found one powder from Revlon that is light enough for my skin, and it is literally the ONLY one except the $50 ones I can't afford. Does anyone know if Revlon is gluten free?

Does anyone else have really fair, I mean REALLY fair skin that uses a fairly inexpensive makeup that matches their skin? All the other kinds make me look orange or just are too dark!

Also, if something is processed on shared lines that they clean, I wouldn't eat it. but if it's just makeup do you think that it would be relatively safe, or are you as careful with makeup as you are with food??

Thanks. :)

E.l.f. Makeup is supposedly gluten-free and available @ Target. They process it on shared equipment but I'll give it a whirl.

I use Bare Minerals. I'm very light as well and it works well with my skin tone. It's more expensive than Revlon but it lasts forever. I have a hard time with makeup matching too. I think you can buy at Target now but you can go by their stores in the mall or Sephora and get a sample first.

How much is it for a Bare Minerals face powder? Revlon is $11.

I think it's about 24 dollars--but it lasts FOREVER!!! Well worth it. You would want the fair--I'm a paleface too, so I understand the "just give me the lightest shade you have" routine. I bought a new tub of foundation about 6 weeks ago. That was when I thought I was running dangerously low. Guess I wasn't! I wouldn't be surprised if the previous tub had lasted 8+ months. Revlon can't beat that.

That's not a bad deal! Thanks, I'll check it out! I go through my Revlon one like every month and a half. So if this lasts forever id be do happy!

I second the part about mineral makeup lasting forever. It really does. And it's fabulous for light complexions. And it's cooler than liquids - doesnt feel like a mask.
