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.
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.
