3 Stunning Makeup Looks For Pale Skin Tones
Posted by Nitya Uppal in Makeup
Hunting for the best makeup for pale skin tones is a daily struggle which many of us face. Thanks to our light tone, most colours being sold in the market tend to stand stark against our skin. The eye shadow that seemed perfect under the store lighting in reality doesn't blend with your look at all and well, to put it gently, it makes you resemble the terrifying clown your mum hired on your seventh birthday.
If you can relate to this everyday struggle and have been looking for some guidance then we’re happy to tell you that at My Beauty Matches we are well-versed in the art of matching stunning makeup looks to the right skin tone. After years of research and guidance from makeup experts, this list of easy tips and top makeup for pale skin tones is everything you need.
For a conventional, everyday makeup look start by setting your face with an even base using your preferred foundation and concealer. To add a gorgeous hint of colour apply a soft shimmery shade to your eyes such as this Clinique’s Wear Everywhere Eyeshadow Octet £32.00. Use the soft pink shade to fill up your eyelid and define the crease of the eye with the shimmery white. Combine this with L’oréal’s Colour Riche Collection Priveée Lipstick Jlo Red £6.99 and you’re ready to take on the day with a makeup look that's subtle, gorgeous and perfect for pale skin tones.
Just because strong colours tend to stand out against your skin, there's no reason you need to feel restricted to softer hues - it’s all about knowing which shade is right for you and what makes you feel comfortable. One of my favourites for the perfect daring lip is Terry’s Rouge Terrybly Age Defense Lipstick £34.5 which has a texture which feels as good as this product looks. Want to know a secret? If you're trying to create smokey eyes, opt for shades of brown instead of black which will makes your eyes standout without looking overdone. Finally to finish your look add some colour by applying NARS Orgasm Blush £23.00 to the apples of your cheeks for a bold, colour and totally gorgeous makeup look for pale skin.
For the warmer times ahead this is definitely a look to try, inspired by all things happy and bright. If you’ve never dared to use a coloured eyeliner it’s time to pick one up and spice up your look. If you're feeling bold pick a bright colour such as red, or if you're more in the mood for modesty opt for a more subtle shade such as sea blue, chocolate or peacock green. The key to pulling off a bright but subtle look is to draw a thin precise line of your favourite eye liner, mine is Cailyn’s It Liquid Eyeliner £10.50, just above the colour liner. Finally, finish off your look with a gorgeous lip gloss that will complement your eyes, a top favourite on the market is Burberry’s Lip Glow Lip Gloss Nutmeg £27.00, pair with an LBD and watch some heads turn!
If Emma Stone, Cate Blanchett, and Nicole Kidman can rock a pale shade with flair then so can you - all you need is the right information on how to play on your strengths. With these inspirational looks in hand, it’s time for you to step away from the spray tans and bronzers to embrace your natural skin tone.
