You may hear everyone saying lately, “Pale is the new tan!” This is good for all of us who were born with naturally fair skin. However, pale skin is often harder to keep up with due to redness and finding the right colors for your skin tone. Luckily, there are many things fair-skinned people can do to enhance their light complexion.
It is much easier to spot veins and imperfections on pale skin, especially under the eyes. You’re going to want to buy a yellow or beige concealer that is preferably one shade lighter than your skin. By dabbing some under your eye, it helps conceal any noticeable blood vessels and other flaws.
As stated before, make sure your concealer is a yellow, green, or beige base. Pale skin is more prone to redness, and the cool tints will counteract that effect. Blemishes and other spots will become a lot less noticeable when using the proper yellow-toned concealer.
Foundation is one of the hardest things to purchase for those with fair skin. It is often hard to find a shade perfect for your skin tone. Even foundations that appear to be fair, can end up leaving a noticeable mark on your jaw line due to the color difference. It is very important to find a foundation that matches your light skin tone. A good option would be to go somewhere like Macy’s where they can personally match you to a foundation close to your skin. It may be a bit more expensive, but it will save you money in the long run. Tinted moisturizers are also a good alternative if you cannot find any foundations available in the right shade.
When choosing any type of makeup for fair skin, make sure it has built in SPF. If you cannot find any including sun protection, then apply a small amount of sunscreen to your face before applying makeup. Pale skin tends to age faster, so you want to make sure you’re taking care of yourself and preventing future sun damage.
These are all ways to enhance and embrace the fair skin you were born with. Bronze may be in, but pale skin is slowly making a comeback! Just do a bit of research and you are sure to look like a Nicole Kidman beauty queen!
