Are you in need for some great makeup tips for pale skin? Choosing the right shades for fair skin is not easy, because with this skin type, colors usually stand out too harshly against the pale background. When you prepare for a party or a date, and change from a daytime look to a more defined makeup, you can still have a gorgeous look even if you have porcelain skin. If you know some small makeup tricks, you can learn what are those colors and shades that work best for your complexion, and how to use them in a way to make your face radiant and show your natural beauty.
Fair skin will always be a timeless trend. As compared to the past, when it was usually associated with social status, nowadays porcelain skin with rosy cheeks has become a trend that many women would like to achieve. While tanned skin has become highly popular in the last decade, in many parts of the world, women with darker skin tones dream about having a fresh looking, youthful fair complexion. Let’s see some useful tips on how to make your pale complexion sexier and how to obtain a perfect finish.
A tinted moisturizer gives a hint of color and is much lighter than foundation for the summer. A cream color blush on the apple of the cheeks imbues a flushed glow. Pink and corals look beautiful and fresh on fair skin. I like bright lipstick. It really pops and brings out the coloring in porcelain skin. Fair skin can get away with a myriad of colors on the eyes, so this is wear you can have fun and experiment Yes, fair complexions can wear bronze shades—on the eyes. Bronzed eye shadows look beautiful on blue and green eyes. Golden browns look quite beautiful on brown eyes and make them appear lighter.
Black liner in the water line of the eyes followed by a very sheer, well-blended application of bronze or golden shadow on the top lid and under the eye is a great summer look. This looks a little smoky, yet still fresh and youthful.To perfect skin without making it look tan, apply a pearlier highlighted or sheer, light golden-colored cream on the arms and legs. This will pick up the light and make them appear sleek and lean. Focus on the areas that reflect the most light: apply down the shin bone, center of the thigh, collar bone, shoulders, and down the front of the arms. Nude lip glosses, pink, coral and berry shades look amazing on pale skin. For a special, evening look, classic bright red lipsticks or darker tones are absolutely stunning on fair complexion and will definitely make heads turn. Enhance your natural beauty and have some fun discovering new colors that add to your porcelain skin a radiant, very feminine, delicate look.
People who apply makeup professionally are called makeup artists. They deserve the title “artist,” because they play with colors to enhance and highlight your natural beauty, a hairdresser does the exact same. It is true that both makeup artists and hairdressers work off the same color wheel yet the makeup artist has an easier job when learning the trade because with a little cleanser and water the makeup comes off when it’s not a desired result, not so easy for the hairdresser .There are many theories on how to select your colors in makeup and hair and all have their own unique points. For me as a hair color specialist my theory is whether its makeup or hair color we need to apply both cool and warm tones on any individual, each compliments each other when placed correctly beside or on top of each other this is how we balance. The fact is; all human beings are made up of many tones; take for an example a pale (cool) skinned brunette (warm) with blue eyes (cool), she’s warm and cool just how Mother Nature made all of us. My beliefs is for all hairdressers and makeup artists to learn the most important basic fundamentals in each respectful domains, and both will realize makeup and hair color can draw ideas from each other, enhance and highlight the same features, eye color, skin tone, bone structure, hair because they both work off the universal color wheel.
I have had the honor of working with some of the world’s best and finest makeup artist and have learnt many things and tricks; makeup has been an insightful learning element in my career as a hair colorist. Makeup artists as well as a hairdresser sometimes use the same techniques (makeup layers and blends so does hair color. Now can you imagine you the consumers going to a hairdresser who offers you to finish your visit with a change of lip and or a blush color after your new or freshened up hair color, nice huh! Still to this day I love working with makeup artists and doing a little makeup on my clients, after all if I am sending someone home after a change to their hair color with the same makeup they came in with truly my job isn’t finished and when makeup connects to hair color it works in harmony for the ultimate end result to achieve individual beauty. Talk with you client on ideas of makeup change for her new hair color. This is a must!

I am sure we all have problems with eye liners. There are pencils, liquid liners, powders, and of course my favorite Pots. I was doing hair and makeup on a contestant for the Miss Florida pageant and I decided to use a variation of liners. I went ahead and applied a MAC primer to the eye lids, which is a MUST for me and MAC makes the best primers in my view. Shadows were applied and my first choice was the Maybelline brown pot, and with a small MAC brush it did the trick. Not too runny and the color was slightly matte. I went ahead and added some orange rouge to my liner and then that did the trick. The brown liner was just a little to matte to me. But being a hair colorist I always mix and customize my hair color formulas, for my clients. So when ever I purchase any product in the makeup field I never use it totally by itself.
The product itself had a very good texture to work with. Now I am always a individual and never follow one manufacturer for hair-color or makeup and even for my hair cutting shears. Shop around and find out what is best for you. Professionals in the makeup and beauty industry will be devoted to one brand. Not so, no manufacturer can do it all, in liners, shadows, brow powder, lips, gloss etc. Find out what works best for you and mix and match your formulas. Customize! THAT is the proper word. I love to mix my pots with rouges. My lip colors are not one color of lipstick they are all self formulated. And that is why I am a professional.
The Maybelline Pot I used was a brown, and it lasted all day on the client. The product has a very thick mixture to it, so make sure you do a little stirring before the application and us the smallest brush that you are comfortable using for the liners. The Pots also has a slight amount of shimmer to them which is a added benefit, I had using a matte, flat color. The purchase price was also agreeable for me it was only $7.00 for the Pot and there was a ample amount for me to use. And as a haircolorist and makeup artist I can go through product like water, so for the consumer you receive alot for the price you pay!!! Try ladies it worked for me!!!
Good luck. And always remember Less is Best!
