According to a study by L’Oréal, there is “the actual color and the perceived color of skin” that should be considered when choosing the right makeup colors. If your skin tone is extra fair finding the best lipstick colors for your complexions is a hard thing to do because most colors can be overpowering. Deep, bold lipstick colors can be suitable when drama is needed, like for a date night. Softer shades however, are the most flattering for everyday wear.

Pink lipstick

Pink colored lipstick can help a pale complexion look healthy and vibrant. Care needs to be taken so that the pink color chosen doesn’t have a white undertone, unless you’re going for a 1960s look. The best pink shades to choose range from those that are slightly darker in contrast to skin tone to those that are warmer.

Rose pink can be especially flattering on your skin, and tends to look great on individuals with delicate features and blond to mid brown hair. Women with darker hair may find they need to define their lips a little more, and a dusky rose or deeper plum color lipstick will do the trick.

Red lipstick

Red colored lipstick can be daring next to a pale skin tone. Unless this is the goal, subtle reds that have an orange, rather than blue-based undertone tend to be a better choice with the most appealing result.

A great method for applying red lipstick to achieve a natural looking effect is to use a fingertip to spread color over lips. This results in lips appearing flushed rather than heavily made-up.

Mauve lipstick

Women with very fair skin need to be wary of using purple-based lipstick colors. Subtlety is the key and gentle plum-toned mauve colors, rather than blue-based purple tones, are the most flattering.

Orange lipstick

Just like white-based pink tones, orange lipstick colors can appear old-fashioned and stale. Warm, pink-based orange lipstick colors are best. Neon orange colors however, should be avoided, these can make you look ill of all things!

Brown lipstick

Brown lipstick colors are not generally attractive next to pale-toned skin. Avoid this color if you’re going for drama, it will only appear muddy. If you love brown-based lipstick then maybe try a warm, plum-based brown that is light in tone, or mix subtle brown lipstick with pink.

Burgundy lipstick

Burgundy lipstick can achieve a completely different result to subtle pink. Burgundy is a warm color, although not as severe as red. Used sparingly, it can add color and depth so that lips are more noticeable without makeup looking too obvious.

With your fair complexion, you have plenty of colors to choose from, depending on your mood and where you’re going.
