Lip Looks: Red Lipstick on Pale Skin

Updated on February 09, 2013

One of the most strikingly beautiful lip looks is seeing red lipstick on pale skin -- the dark color contrasting with the light. If you have white skin yourself and are wondering if red lips will look good on you, or you simply like to admire the look, this article will inspire you.

In this hub we show you photos of celebrities with red lipstick on fair skin. You might find you want to try one of these looks yourself!

Rachel McAdams' (below) red lips on pale skin is graciously elegant. With her eye and cheek makeup being very light and delicate, her lips stand out yet do not look harsh. If you would like to copy her look, wear pastel makeup on most of your face, but coat those lips true red.

Dita Von Teese always rocks the retro look. She knows just how beautiful dark red lipstick on fair skin is, as she is always seen in it. Her black hair and red and black polka-dot outfit are the epitome of retro 50s sexy. To get her look, wear a black wig or dye your hair black, and wear a red halter dress.

Alesaandra Ambrosio goes mod with her red lips. She wears a color-blocked turtleneck, muted out eyebrows, full foundation, and just a little black eyeliner. Her lips boldly stand out against dulled makeup and clothing. If you want her mod look, simply wear foundation with little makeup other than eyeliner, and go for gray clothing. If you dare, you can also fully bleach your eyebrows (you can always dye them back).

Megan Fox's red lips are part of her night on the town look. Megan goes for soft red lipstick, pink blush and eyeshadow, and simple black eyeliner. I love when Megan Fox keeps her skin pale. She looks much better with fair skin vs. tan skin. To get her look, make sure to go for a red lipstick that will complement rather than overpower your skin tone. And remember to apply makeup to the rest of your face, especially eyeliner around the entire eye.

Nicole Kidman wears one of the most common lip looks: glam. Red lipstick is traditionally worn in the evenings or at formal gatherings, and Nicole looks amazing this way. Her cherry red lipstick fully matches her red dress, and her strawberry blonde hair brings it all together. To get her look, pair a formal or cocktail dress with a lip color of the same shade. You might have to shop around to match it up, but it will be worth it!

    I just love red lipsticks, especially with the retro "pin up" look that Dita Von Teese is wearing. It tends to be the look I go for when I don't want to spend a lot of time on my makeup. (Which is becoming more and more frequent lately) Love the hub!

    Hi there Sana, I agree with you. If I could have found photos of pale Hollywood celebrities wearing red lipstick that aren't this type I would have used them. Thanks for your perspective.
