Although, I am not quite fair right now (hi, summer, how are you?), I still abide by the fair skin colour rules – don’t go too light, yet don’t go too dark… unless you want to. The fact is very light and very dark colors can wash us out beyond belief, therefore I always stick to four families: Berries, Reds, Deep Pinks and Browns. These add just the perfect hint of colour that will brighten up your complexion. My favorite are:
- Revlon’s matte lipstick in Fabulous Fig: Almost a red and almost a brown, but still able to come off a neutral, it is the perfect balance for fair skin. I even double this as a blush. Just dad a bit onto the apples of your cheeks and an instant flush is born.
- NYC Color’s Retro Red: For the most daring. This is the perfect 1950s red, a colour every girl should have. It’s blue tones, which may not work for everyone, but it is marvelous if you can.
- B.S.N’s Stained Pink: Like Fabulous Fig, except instead of red it is perfectly pink for a sweet everyday look that won’t overpower the rest of your makeup.
- NYC Color’s Berry Rich: A bold everyday colour for the fair skinned girl, especially if you have a warm or neutral undertone.
