Good news for fair-skinned ladies: pale complexions are more on-trend than ever! With the rise of "no makeup" makeup, it's becoming more and more popular to embrace your features au naturel - that means thick, luscious brows and a translucent, glowing complexion! We've got five expert tips for embracing your fair skin:
Always wear SPF
Sun damage is the #1 cause of ageing, which means sun spots, fine lines, and prolonged scarring that are especially obvious on pale skin. To combat sun damage, never step out of house without a layer of SPF 30 (or higher) on your skin.
Hyperpigmentation and redness are common on pale skin, so we suggest opting for a lightweight liquid foundations like the Lumi Cushion Compact. The clever application method allows you to apply as much coverage as you need with a natural, radiant finish.
Bye bye, dark circles!
Another common factor of pale skin? Under eye circles. Fair skin tends to also be thin, which allows the blood under the ees to show through, making you look tired. Combat dark circles with a light-reflecting concealer, applied in an upside down triangle shape just below the eye.
Stay away from dark eyeshadows that can really darken your eye area or too bright blushes that can make you look clown-like. Instead, opt for light, fresh shades like soft pinks and corals, lavander, bronze and gold to add subtle color.
Go for glow
Instead of adding dimension to your face by creating shadows with contouring powder, highlight the high points of your face instead with a highlighting powder or liquid. This will also work to give instant radiance to your complexion.
