( Thankyou ahead of time, and Sorry if you think that 'omgtherearealready *insertnumberhere* topics on this already, its just, i havent seen/found anything on this perticular issue x_x; )

for an Upcoming September Con, im going to be doing a slightly imrpovised Gothic Lolita outfit, but that dosent need to much detail o_<
My problem, is the makeup, and how i could lighten the shade of my skin, im already naturally pale ( i nearly NEVER go outside, but i still want to be a few shades lighter .. )

the first issue. I have neverworn any kind of makeup, heavier then eyeshadow and lip gloss, but the photoshoot guide to makeup helped out, alot, so thats somewhat set
the second issue. Finding pale concealers/foundations/powders, ive heard lots of suggestions, but either they're to Expensive, iffy, or Extreamly Out there.
concerning this, i Know Amiphigory has a line of white to Pale Foundations, and a white pressed powder, but no concealers,
acctually, most of the obvious places ive checked out, dont carry concealers
so what i need to know is that are there any generic concealers that would work with Amphigory?
My Freind is also recomending l'oreal stuff ( true blend and feel natural? ) any commentary on this would be really appreciated o_<

also, recommendations for a really light blush?
im leaning twoard the Amphigory powders again, they have a nice, pale, pink shade that would work very well on my skintone
i already have a nice technique for dark eyeshadow, and my eyelases are dark enough so i dont need mascara, and i can find a good lipstick at the drugstore o__o'

I'm not sure about the other things you're asking about, but I normally use lavendar blush when I'm trying to make my face more pale. ^^

If you make your face white for EGL, it looks tacky in my opinion. Making it look naturally lighter is good.
I have naturally pale skin and happen to use L'oreal true-match in the lightest color (porcelain). It's pretty good. You said your skin is natually pale so that should work.
The best color of powder I've found ever is Almay's shade "translucent". It's very light and nice.

okay, another question to add to this. my skin is not super-pale, but still somewhat-pale. would that foundation still work for me? also, i need to make my hands, and anything else that may be showing, pale. would i use the same makeup? would it rub off? (btw, i am planning on cosplaying sae kurosawa from fatal frame 2, if that helps. i can get a pic. in fact, i may already have one i can post.)

Green prebase makeup works wonders. Makes you look ghostly.

You might want to look more gray instead of white for it to look more dynamic. I personally would go get Ben Nye, since it's meant for theatre and more hardy, even though it's a bit more pricey. But quality really stands out.

does it work on hands? or should i find something else to do for that, like, being as pale as sae with normal colored hands?

I think that Ben Nye would last on your hands. I should say the same for the prebase. I believe that Amphigory sells a green powder than is like the prebase.

Prebases are like foundation preppers. You put it on before you put on the foundation. They are labelled as prebases. Shieshiedo makes a wonderful prebase.

I'm doing Sae one year and the way I was going to make my face pale white was this white powder I think they call it Ghost Powder. X.x It say it makes you pale and it's usually sold around Halloween time or online.

If you want to turn a bit whiter natural stay out of the sun. XD Lol. Like be more of an inside person than outside.
