Makeup Tips for Pale Skin

The skin of the face is the basis for your entire look. It serves as a background for the rest of the makeup. If your skin type is pale, then no need to worry. Of course it is difficult to survive in times when pink cheeks are mostly accepted. Yet, there are dozens of tricks to make even the palest face look fine.

This problem is usually noticeable during cold weather, when your skin becomes even paler. No makeup seems to show off. This is a natural thing not only for those with pale skin on the face, but those who have a normal skin color. Here, we try to reveal to you a lot about the secrets of your complexion and show easy ways to correct the paleness with right and bright colors, shades that go best with this skin type. Following some easy beauty tips, you can instantly make your pale skin look perfect and show off your natural beauty.

Makeup Tips for Pale Skin


Number one step is to find the correct under-eye concealer. Since your skin is pale it is natural that this area will need a special attention, since the blue blood vessels beneath these sensitive parts of your face will be vividly seen. For this reason, you should choose a concealer that is slightly yellowish. It will help you greatly.

The unwanted parts on your face are concealed, so next thing to do is creating a smooth background for the makeup, that is-choosing a correct foundation. A lighter foundation though should be chosen for this respect. Always match the color of the foundation with the color of your neck. You will look natural by doing so.

There is a tendency among girls to use darker foundations when dealing with a pale skin. Dear girls, please avoid this harsh mistake. The choice of a dark foundation makes you look unnatural, as if you are wearing a thick mask. It will also create the impression that you have applied a peeling or other cleansing mask and have forgotten to take it off or wash it away.

Makeup Tips for Pale Skin
Once you have the desired foundation, pass on to your eyes. When it comes to an eye shadow, preference should be given to soft, pastel tones. Nevertheless, if you like dark colors, you can use both darker and brighter shades for evening look. Especially brown goes well with pale face. For special occasions, feel free to create the impression of smoky eyes, which is another trick for highlighting a pale skin.

Brown should prevail in your cosmetics. You can use this color for both in eye-shadows, as well as for mascara or an eye liner. If you do not want to have a harsh look when opting for black mascara, go for a brown one.

To bring life onto your face, you should focus on your cheeks. If your cheeks are pale, use pink and light peach shades of a blush. They look harmonious. If you want to have a more natural look, you can use cream blushes as well. Apply it carefully on the apples of your cheeks with your fingers. Avoid reddish shades, anyways.

And the last thing to do is complete your makeup with a lipstick. You can use lip glosses, which tend to add color to your face, yet let it remain natural. When using a lipstick for a day look, you can go for the same colors as were for your blush.

Any shades of pink, coral will be ok. For evening looks, however, you can take a red lipstick, which will look fantastic on your face. A red lipstick contrasts the paleness of your face and makes you look adorable. A red lipstick has always been the classics of makeup of all times. No one will stand the stunning effect on your lips.

With these amazing makeup tips for pale skin, you will get over the problem in no time.
