How to Figure Out Makeup Color for Fair Skin

Step 1

Stick with soft tones for your face. Choose concealer and foundation that are beige, soft pink or tawny. These soft and simple colors will cover any imperfections on your skin seamlessly without making you look washed out or ruddy. However, stay away from face makeup that has orange-red tones or is frosted, as it can give you a sallow appearance.

Step 2

Achieve that rosy-cheeked look that fair-skinned ladies are known for by adorning them with soft pinks and corals. The delicate tones in these pretty colors will add the right amount of flush to your face without making you look like a clown.

Step 3

Perfect your peepers with soft and sheer tones. Eye shadows in pastel colors that are sheer and shimmering will enhance your eyes without making them look sunken or sullen – a look that too-dark makeup can sometimes create. If you want to glam up your look, line your eyes with dark brown eyeliner and liven up your lashes with black mascara.

Step 4

Play up your pout with soft shades. Pale-skinned gals look best with lips that are adorned in nude, berry, coral and pink tones of lipsticks and lip glosses. They add just the right amount of color to your face and bring the look together.
