    im a really light brown and would want to be a fair colour. If you look at a skin tone colour chart, im a shade 3 and would like to be a shade 2.

    That's still really inspecific as different charts have different standards. Can you reference some celebrities which you can compare to?

    You could get pretty light with aa however you have to use a good sunscreen, you should probably use it with RA so it can absorb better.

    I also have the powder and looking forward how to make a lotion or cream with it. I tried with water and eucerin lotion but when I put it on my face I can see the powder on my face. Girl can you please guide us how to mix it please?

    skinproblem, sometimes that white cast is a problem you just have to deal with. You might try buying retin-a, it will help the product to absorb, so you don't waste any of the product. Also try something like propylene glycol as the base it's supposed to help. Also try to apply the mixture at night when you sleep so it doesn't matter if you have a white cast. If you have any more questions just ask.
