Making a white wig look good with my skin

I have a very warm skin tone with a lot of red. Red hair looks fantastic on me, but I find that stark white looks awful. I need to wear a white wig though for a costume. I'm Caucasian. What shade of foundation would you recommend that would look nice? Or does anyone have other tips? They would be greatly appreciated!

Agreed. A wig that has a little silver in it looks better on most skintones, and a lot more natural.

Even with my pale skin I prefer silver/whites over pure white wigs.

Foundation there are a lot of tones you can be so just asking what would match Caucasian doesn't really work. You need to test them out yourself on your jaw to see if it matches you body tone (pink, warm, neutral, cool or olive) and shade (light to dark).

I don't really have the time to buy another wig.

You can get a silver sharpie marker and add silver low lights to your wig. You just draw the thin streaks in by hand a few strands at a time.
