Updated on October 13, 2014

If you are looking for lipstick colors for pale skin, this hub will help you identify what colors to wear based on your hair color. We include a famous blonde, two brunettes, and a redhead to give you some makeup inspiration.

Celebrities like Cate Blanchett, Dita Von Teese, Kristen Stewart, and Amy Adams all wear beautiful lipstick colors for fair skin.

Cate Blanchett in Pearly Pink

Cate Blanchett's blue eyes and blonde hair are complemented by her choice of a pearly pink lipstick color.

If you are blonde-haired and light-eyed, this shade of pink will look great on you with an addition of a light pink blush, to bring the whole pastel-themed look together.

Dita Von Teese chooses a cherry red lip color next to her pale skin. She is well-known for her 1940s-era look of curly dark hair, emphasized brows, and dark lips.

If you have very dark hair and very white skin, a red lip color like this will make you appear sexy and retro.

    I love the subdued pink lipstick color on Cate Blanchett. I think it would also look good on me, because I have similar features. I voted this up, useful, and beautiful.
