Fair skin is very popular and fashionable at the moment, especially when enhanced with the right makeup. Not all women know what kind of makeup will flatter their pale complexions and fair-skinned women have to be extra careful when applying makeup to avoid looking over the top. See our tips for applying makeup to fair skin.
Blush looks great on women with fair-skin, in fact they can sometimes look washed out without it. Light peach or pink blushes look best on fair skin. To apply, carefully use a light touch of blush to the apples of your cheeks with a blush brush.
To get an even more natural look, apply crème blush to the apples of your cheeks in circular motions with your fingers.
Avoid black eyeliner and mascara
Women with fair-skin are advised to use brown eyeliner and mascara as blacks can look very harsh on them. Brown eyeliner and mascara will help open up your eyes in a nice soft way.
Wear a blue-toned lipstick
Lipsticks with blue-toned lip colours like lilac and mauve look great on women with fair-skin. Fair-skinned women can also carry off red lipstick as long as it is blue-based.
Stay away from bronzer
Bronzer can sometimes make fair-skin appear dirty, so it is advised to stick with blush and avoid the bronzer. Women with pale skin can still achieve a healthy glow by mixing in a little bit of liquid highlighter with their foundation if required.
If you’re a fair-skinned beauty, the above makeup tips will help you get a beautiful and glowing look to compliment your natural tones.
