Top 10 Makeup Tips for Women with Fair, Light Skin & Blonde Hair

Many blondes with fair skin have no idea how to use makeup to complement their pale skin. Whether you struggle with trying to hide your freckles or just want to learn how to highlight your features and look fresh, these blond makeup tips will help you look gorgeous!

  1. You Donít Have to Stick with Pastel Eye Shadow Colors.
    When youíre a blonde, never think you are forced to stick with pastel eye shadow colors alone. Sure, you can pull them off well. But, you can also use browns, purples, grays and silvers to help you get the look you want.

  2. Play Up Eyes with the Right Eyeliner Shades.
    Blondes are fortune in that they can wear eyeliner shades of almost any color. Some of the best shades to try are gray, violet, blue and brown. However, black can be used for a super dramatic effect at night time, as well.

  3. Concealer is a Fair Skinned Galís Best Friend.
    If you have freckles or other blemishes, they can show up a lot when your skin is fair. Thus, concealer will likely become your best friend. Find a concealer to make your skin tone. Dap it on any areas you want to conceal and blend the edges until it looks seamless on your face. This may take practice, so donít give up!

  4. Bronzer Can Give Your Complexion Some ZEST!
    If you want a sunkissed look, donít be afraid to use bronzer. After youíve applied your foundation and/or powder, take a big round blush and apply bronzer in a light bronze color. Only add it to your t-zone and to the apples of your cheeks. Remember, less is more when it comes to bronzer!

  5. Have a Light Hand with the Blush.
    Loading up on blush wonít make you look less fair and will only end up making you look like a clown. So, when it comes to choose blush colors, stick with a sheer pink or neutral color. Add a little to the apples of your cheeks and examine it in natural sunlight. If you feel you need more at that point, add more. If you overdo it, you can always use a little powder or foundation to tone it back down without having to re-do all of your makeup.

  6. Choose lip colors in pinks and corals.
    Lipstick can help pale skin look brighter, but overloading on dark colors of lipstick can end up making you look even fairer. Stick with lighter colored lipsticks of pinks and corals. You can also opt for colored lip glosses for a more natural and fresher look.

  7. Fair skin generally needs more moisture than darker skin.
    When you have fair skin, moisturizing and taking care of your skin is very important. Fine lines, spots and blemishes show up a lot more on light skin than darker skin tones. Thus, itís important to use a light moisturizer after you shower each morning and a thicker night time moisturizer before bed.

  8. Brown Mascara Looks More Natural.
    When it comes to mascara and blondes, itís best to wear brown mascara for daytime hours and save the dark mascara colors for night wear only for a more dramatic look.

  9. Use Your Neckline to Choose a Foundation.
    Fair skinned beauties often choose the wrong foundation tint. They end up looking almost white powder like, which is never a good look on anyone. Thus, choosing a foundation can be kind of tricky. The best thing to do is visit your local mall cosmetics counter to allow a professional to help you with the task. However, if youíd prefer not to, simply look at your neckline and try to match a foundation color to that area.

  10. Use Sunscreen EVERYDAY.
    Cosmetics can certainly help your fair skin look radiant, but for overall great looking skin, youíll also need to work diligently to protect it. To do this, you should work a daily sunscreen on your body and your face into your skin care routine. Use one with a fairly high SPF to ensure youíre getting the best protection possible.
