Superdrug favorite MUA (Make Up Academy) have released a new foundation called Pro Base, which is available in 24 shades at a cost of just £5. The products are cruelty and paraben free, and as they have quite a wide range of shades for paler and deeper skin tones, I thought I’d give both the

Let’s be honest, the biggest pet peeve when it comes to buying foundation when you have pale skin, is finding shades that are light enough. Strictly speaking, there isn’t an awful lot you can do to find *ultra* light shades (as in darker that white yet lighter than NC15 in Mac). The best way
