We spend hours in the cosmetic stores trying to find the perfect shade by trying on the tester lipsticks. A wrong choice will most certainly kill the buzz of the look. For so many people choosing a lipstick is more trial and error than science.
The choice of lipsticks depends on many factors including
- The skin tone – The same lipstick shade would not suit fair, medium and darker-skinned tones
- The occasion – Everyday wear requires more subtle shades rather than a blingy red
- Texture of the lipstick – Lipsticks is available in stains, glosses, mattes etc. They will all go on as a different hue. Hence, it’s essential to try out the texture of the lipstick
To solve this confusion, it’s advisable to go through the basics for choosing the right colour.
In this post, I have listed out 5 lipstick shades for fair skin tone women.
1. Rich Red:
Red is a very popular colour and looks great on fair skin. It gives a bold, dashing look to fair skin women with pinkish or rosy hues. You need to experiment with the texture. Stains such as Revlon bitten lipsticks are very popular these days.
For a complete look, outline the lips with a red lipliner.
2. Red With Purple Undertone:
This one is one of my favourite lipstick shades for fair skin. It is a more pinkish version and is perfect for a night out. If you are going for a little less oomph than rich red, this is the colour for you.
This is a playful colour and suits young girls the most. Once in a while, it is good to get adventurous and look beyond the conventional colours.
Orange has been the in-trend colour this year. For a clean look pair it with nude eyes. If you want to up the ante you can add on goth eye makeup.
Although I must warn you, if not worn with the right outfit it may turn out to be a disaster. So in the case of orange lipstick, less is definitely more.
This is a great colour for everyday wear. You can wear it to office and slick on some lip gloss for a party look. It’s perfect for summers.
Pair this look with nude eyes for a fresh summery look. It is not on the bolder side but can still make your lips look pretty.
5. Coral Pink In Matte:
Here is another lipstick for fair skin and is also good for an everyday look. The colour isn’t too bold; it would make your eyes stand out. It also gives you a natural look.
Now having given you the guidelines, it’s time for you to make your own variations and choose the colour which suits you the best. Have fun! And don’t forget to comment!
