Makeup tips for fair skin

Makeup tips for fair skin

If you love fairytales just like we do, then you’d know it well which fairytale princess you’d be! Surely your mom wished you upon snow and the crimson of her blood! Good guess there!

Being born with fair skin tone you must have come across mixed compliments or comments like “oh you’re so pretty!” or “aww you look so pale!” Chill Girl! No matter what people say, you’re just gorgeous!

Well, on another note, being fair comes with its own pros and cons. Pros; we’ll get to that, but let’s start with the bad news... just like broccoli before your dessert (winks!)

Makeup tips for fair skin tone

Just like how being fair means being flawless, it also means that you’re more prone to marks and long-lasting acne scars that might be there forever. Lighter skin tone tends to show the scars deeper and make your pigmentation appear clearer.

So, the best solution? Well, like our forefathers once said, “prevention is better than cure!” And how do we prevent these nasty guests from coming in uninvited? We’ll tell you how...

Make sure you use a face wash that is mild and sulphate free. Face washes like these are gentle on the skin and they clean out dirt, grease and pollutants; keeping your skin clean and happy. For this, Iba’s Vitamin C Face Wash would be just perfect for you.

Next step is to use a moisturizer that not only keeps your skin hydrated but also prevents pimples and acne from appearing just before that well planned family function. Advanced Activs Crystal Clear 48HR Hydrating and Acne Fighting Aloe Vera Gel is just the pick for you.

Here’s one extra top-tip: no matter what skin tone or type you have; toning is one ritual that you really need to add to your regime. Toning keeps your pores at bay and cleanses any form of excess sebum production that makes your skin oily.  Advanced Activs Crystal Clear Skin Rejuvenating Aloe Vera Serum Toner would be just perfect and the best thing about this is that you can use it in two ways – a toner as well as a serum! Jackpot! You’re Welcome!

Earlier we mentioned that being fair means a good deal of pros come along too! We haven’t forgotten and here’s it; gifted with a fair skin tone also means that you don’t have to think twice when it comes to colours. Be it makeup or clothes; pick whatever you like and it’s sure to suit you. But here’s a fact, some colours tend to compliment you better than the rest; and hence; we have custom selected a few makeup shades for you to pop and pout it out!

Let’s begin with your base; Iba’s Photo Perfect HD Primer is a translucent primer that’s suitable for all skin tones.

Eye Makeup

When it comes to eye makeup for light skin then you can choose pastel shades like pinks and peaches for your daily wear that gives you a beautiful glowing finish. For other times like occasions or festivals you can go for darker browns or a smokey look that enhances your entire face. You can also finish off your entire eye makeup with your mascara for a dramatic look. On other days when you don’t want to wear any kind of eye makeup and yet you want to look your vibrant best, you can then choose a bunch of coloured eyeliners that will instantly give your face the makeover that it deserves. Coloured Kajals are also a great addition for your eye makeup for light skin because these coloured Kajals can also be smudged and can be used like a colourful eyeshadow base colour.

Apart from all these amazing makeup tips and tricks for fair skin tone, there are also options for complete makeup kits that come with all the products that you will never need to create any look that you wish. These makeup combo come in amazing packaging boxes which are great options for festive gifting and you can also treat these amazing makeup boxes to yourself as well.

1.I have hair skin tone, do I need colour correction?

Sometimes even fair skin tone has pigmentations, marks, dark spots, or dark circles which need colour correction before your base makeup. For fair skin tone you can use either a pink or a peach colour corrector. 

2.For fair skin tone which is better – contour or bronzer?

If you want a sharp and chiselled look then we recommend you go for contouring. But if you want a warm and yet a sharp look then a bronzer is good enough.

3.Can I use a peach coloured lipstick for my blush?

If you have fair skin tone or fair to medium skin tone then a peach coloured lipstick works really well for a blush.
