Tips to keep in mind when applying makeup to fair skin

Updated on August 18, 2014

Fair Skin Makeup

Many girls with fair skin go out of their way to fake-bake or tan their skin, but what most fair skinned girls don't know is that they don't need to. If you wear makeup in the right way you can warm up your features and brighten up your face in a few easy steps without the orangey finish. The best thing about having ultra fair skin is that you can easily pull off practically any look. You can quickly change your style by just switching up the colors and approach. Since fair skin really shows off any color you can really create diverse looks that pop with ease. Here are some tips to keep in mind when applying makeup to fair skin:



Make Up for Fair Skin

Care For Your Fair Skin

Keeping your skin in great condition is one of the most important things to remember when doing your makeup. Always apply makeup to your face that has SPF protection in it to prevent sunburns and damage caused from UV rays. Also, since fair skin really shows off colors it also shows off redness, blemishes, and imperfections so it is super important to create a good base to start your makeup on. Conceal any blemishes or dark circles with a concealer. Use a foundation with good coverage all over your face. If you use a liquid foundation set your foundation with a translucent powder.


Be Natural

Be Gentle With Color

Brighten up your face with a little color. If you want more of a soft, feminine look sweep a pink blush over the apples of your cheeks and blend thoroughly. Make sure that you do not apply too much. If you want more of a defined, golden look use a bronzer instead. To create definition on your face contour your cheekbones. First apply a highlighter on top of your cheekbones and blend. Next use a brush to apply bronzer below your cheekbones. Make sure that you blend the highlighter and bronzer to create a super defined look.

Whether you have fair skin or not you should typically try to avoid wearing heavy eye makeup and dark lips for a day look. It's fine to accentuate both features, but one needs to be much more subtle than the other.

Go Dramatic

Get Attention

If you're going for a dramatic evening look, you might consider highlighting your eyes with bold eyeliner and mascara, and giving yourself rich, dark lips, but even then try to keep the blushes and shadows toned down to a minimum so the make up doesn't overwhelm your face.

If you want to focus on your lips then make sure you exfoliate them and apply a primer before adding lip liner and lipstick. When you are wearing bold lips make sure you enhance your eyelashes.

Since people with fair skin typically have fair features as well, eyelashes can look washed out without some enhancement. Use a dark shadow just along the upper and lower lashline to make eyelashes look fuller. Line your waterline with a dark pencil and coat your upper and lower lashes with black mascara. If you want even more dramatic eyes apply false lashes.

If you are sticking with dark eyes then use a sheer neutral lipgloss. Use a pale shadow on your eyelids up to your browbone and apply a darker shade in the crease. Use an even darker shadow on the outer corners and blend inwards. Use a flat brush to apply the darkest shade to your lower lashline. Use a black liner on your waterline and a liquid liner on your upper lashline. Coat your upper and lower lashes with black mascara and apply false lashes for extra intensity. Finish your look by applying a pale lipgloss.


If you follow these simple steps you will be able to easily achieve gorgeous looks on pale skin. Your eyes will really pop and you will look stunning without a fake tan, so give your skin a rest and embrace your natural skin tone. There are so many wonderful looks you can try and you can wear practically any color. You can even try pairing your makeup color choices with your attire and accessories. Remember, pale skin can be beautiful and intriguing so just accentuate your best features and you will definitely look stunning.
