Makeup Tips for People with Fair Skin

People with fair skin have to be careful about the color makeup that they wear. If you go too light you can get a washed out look. If you go to dark you can look like a Goth like vampire. However if you choose the right colors you can look like a bombshell and really stand out. Here are some easy to follow tips.
makeup tips for people with fair skin
Foundation- When selecting foundation be sure to match the makeup color to the skin tone of your jawline. Don’t match your wrist or hand because the skin tones often do vary and you want the most natural look possible. This being said, be sure that the foundation color blends in with your skin tone and don’t go darker than you really are or you’ll end up looking unnatural.
Concealer- If you need a touch of concealer for your under eye area try one that is two shades lighter than your skin tone and has a yellow base so that you can match the colors evenly.
Blush- There’s nothing like a touch of blush on fair skin. Try a soft pink or apricot blush to bring out your cheeks but stay away from the bolder colors because they will stand out too much and will make you look clown like.  Bronzers should be skipped altogether because it won’t look natural on you.
Eye Shadow- Pastel colors such as lilac, soft grey, light green, powder blue and light brown will really bring out your eyes. However if you have blue eyes you should skip the blue because it your eyes will look inverted and odd. Use a grey or brown smokey eye palette to dress up your look.
Eye Liner- If you like to use dark colored eye makeup the best way to do it is by using dark colored eye liner. Navy, chocolate brown, forest green and black will look amazing next to a light shadow and will really bring out your eyes.
Mascara- Take a cue from Christina Aguilera and fatten up those lashes. Brown mascara is very subtle but black mascara that stands out against fair skin can stop traffic.
Lipstick And Lip Gloss- You should opt for a bright lip color such as coral, apricot or red for a sultry look that can go from day to night. Stay away from brown because it won’t do anything for you.
Using these tips you’re sure to get a look that will make you stand out. Good luck and keep feeling beautiful.

Holiday Dragon FOTD

Hello my lovelies!  I was in an experimental mood today and I decided to play around with holiday party makeup ideas.  I knew I wanted to wear Dragon at some point this holiday season so I tried to pair it with a bold eye.  I just wasn’t sure what I wanted to do…
Another thing I knew I wanted to wear sometime this holiday season was MAC Patina.  I think it is such a gorgeous color and the gold patina in it really reminds me of Christmas for some reason.  It looks sort of rustic-y and when I think of Christmas I think of rustic scenery: chopped wood, pinecones dusted in snow, and HELLO, can we say tree (as in the thing that is in our house all month with presents under it)?  Don’t ask me how but MAC’s Patina just reminds me of all that… and its golden tones remind me of beautiful ribbons… I digress… enough with my thought process behind Patina for holiday parties! lol
After I had the look thrown together something was missing so I added some falsies that I had been wanting to wear for months and never thought of a good reason… Well… this is as good of a reason as any.  I was very happy with how well the entire look pulled together after I placed those on my lash line…

The lashes I used were some that I got in a set with the Michael Kors Very Hollywood perfume from the CCO earlier this year.  As soon as I saw them I KNEW they were dupes for the MAC #7 lashes.  They are both Estee Lauder brands so they probably are the same thing.  I am happy to say that they are very nice.  

You know how I love Instagram! haha
