So you have gone to buy yourself some makeup, but are confused about what colors are going to look good on you. You are considered fair by Indian standards, but you know that not all colors look good on you. So follow these pointers to pick colors that work for your fair complexion.
Makeup match for face: As this complexion type generally tends to have a pink skin undertone, the best foundation color to use is either pink based or light beige. This is also the color type where blemishes and dark circles become very apparent so using the right concealer matching your skin tone is important. Pick a concealer that has pale yellow undertones like Ivory shade. Always dab your concealer in place, and then lightly apply the foundation.
Makeup match for eyes: Coming to makeup colors bright pastels look amazing on this complexion type. To do up your eyes you can actually experiment with any color that you like be it bright pinks, lilac, pink red, powder and icy blue, shimmery green etc. If your skin is more pink-toned than yellow then use cooler colors like baby pink, powder blue, lavender and deep plum look very startling. If shadows feel too bold for you pick eyeliners in that color. Play up your eyes. Instead of black liners pick brown, silver or dark grey liners as they highlight eyes beautifully.
Makeup match for cheeks: For cheeks a cool shade of pink or peach blush is a nice way to warm up the fair complexion. For a glowing complexion you can use silver shimmer powder or cream on your cheeks, chin and forehead and the bridge of your nose or mix silver powder with your regular foundation to get a shimmery complexion.
Makeup match for lips: For lips go for any bright color from fuchsia, to bluish red to tangerine, lilac, peach, burgundy and nude in beige or pink. However avoid using too much of chocolate brown which can make you look washed out or too pale.
