If you have a fair complexion, chances are you’ve tried at least once to get that “Hollywood” glow by spending time in the sun, going to a tanning salon, or using a tinted spray or lotion. No matter what you’ve tried, though, you never quite get the results that you see on billboards or television. But, the truth is that pale skin is just as beautiful as darker tones, and it can be even more beautiful when you lean into it and focus on enhancing — rather than hiding — your unique beauty. If your complexion has ever been described as porcelain, here are three tips to love and pamper your skin.
Match Your Makeup to Your Skin Tone
Because your skin is so light, it can be hard to find a foundation that provides coverage and blends naturally. Foundations that are too dark can give you an embarrassing painted look with obvious lines around your jawline or neck. When searching for a foundation, make sure to test it on your jawline in natural light before purchasing. Additionally, take note of your skin’s undertone. Light skin will still have a cool, warm, or neutral undertone. Cool skin tones will need a foundation with yellow undertones, while warm tones will look better with foundations tinged with pink.
Unlock Your Inner Snow White
Pale, porcelain, delicate, fragile, youthful, fair. These are all adjectives that can describe your princess-level complexion. Embrace your priceless, pale features, and play with clothing fashions and hairstyles that accentuate your timeless beauty. Additionally, make sure you pamper your skin! Fair skin deserves protection and care worthy of a princess to allow it to be every bit as beautiful as its fairytale counterpart.
Do Smokey Eyes Right
Many a fair-skinned maiden tries to recreate the smokey eye look that she saw in a magazine. Often, the exaggerated eye shadow in the picture is on a model with darker complexions. A smokey eye is doable for any skin tone, but pick your colors and your brushes carefully. Do some research or watch online tutorials to master the smoldering, sexy look you’ve always dreamed of.
Pale skin is nothing to be ashamed of. It’s a gorgeous gift that, when protected and pampered, will keep on giving. By choosing the right foundation, embracing your inner princess, and mastering the smokey eye for your skin tone, you can truly let your light skin shine!
