Albinism is a genetic condition that causes a lack of melanin, the pigment that gives color to skin and hair. Albinos have pale skin, white hair, and blue eyes, but they can have freckles or moles on their skin. They often need more sun protection than people with darker skin because they burn more easily.
There are many myths about makeup for albinos. It’s not true that you can’t wear foundation or bronzer if you’re an albino. In fact, it’s important to wear sunscreen every day—even if your skin isn’t exposed to the sun—to protect against sun damage.
If your skin is pale and you want to cover up any redness or discoloration, try a BB cream or foundation that has a yellow tint to it. This will help even out your complexion while still looking natural.
You also don’t need blush on an albino’s cheeks because they naturally have pink cheeks from their lack of melanin in those areas anyway! Instead, use a highlighter on these areas instead so they really pop!
Albinos should use darker lipsticks when wearing bolder shades like reds and oranges because lighter ones can wash them out too much
Makeup for albinos
It seems even people with albinism can enjoy what the collection has to offer after several women have come forward to praise the singer’s cosmetics, one being Krystal Robertson, a nurse from Mississippi.
Fashion is also featuring more people with the congenital disorder, such as model Diandra Forrest.
So, what else is out there for the super-fair skinned? Here are some options.
Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation
Shades 100 and 110 are extremely light, but give as much coverage as the other tones. You can build up how heavy you want the foundation, from light to full, and thanks to it being oil-free, the product won’t be ruined by humidity or sweat. All of RiRi’s products are 100 per cent cruelty-free too – we love her even more now!
Lily Lolo Mineral Foundation SPF 15
There are quite a few products on offer under this brand, but we decided a mineral foundation would be a good shout as it’s hard to find options that give good coverage let alone suit really pale skin! The Porcelain shade is the fairest of the fair and its natural ingredients ensure skin doesn’t suffer, meaning no breakouts or blemishes will be caused.
NYX Total Control Drop Foundation
For a shade simply called Pale, you may not be convinced, but this tone is actually extremely fair and can be applied easily with just a few drops. Put as little or as much as you want on, blend with a brush and feast your eyes upon the natural matte finish.
Revlon ColorStay Foundation Combination/Oily
Favoured by YouTube users including Porcelain Nari, the Ivory version of the product is perfect for the very pale and also works on a range of skin types. Smooth, silky and easy to blend, this lightweight foundation offers a velvety finish that will last all day – perfect if you’re heading out after work!
There are some great pencils out there too, like NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Pencil in 01 Light for all purposes, Lorac Pro Brow Pencil in Blonde and L.A. Girl Shady Slim Brow Pencil in Blonde.
