In the summer, pale and very light skin can look good too! Here, we offer a step-by-step guide to makeup that will enhance the beauty of your fair skin.
Remember to thoroughly wash your face before applying your usual moisturizer or, better yet, a BB cream like one from the Marcelle line, which can be used as a tinted moisturizer and also acts as a great makeup primer.
This is the moment to cover up any minor imperfections. Dark under-eye circles can be hidden with the help of a cover-up stick in a shade that matches or is lighter than your skin tone. You can easily camouflage redness (rosacea, spots, etc.) with the help of a green-hued cover-up stick.
Now comes the time to apply your foundation. If you like liquid foundations that leave your skin smooth and glowing, opt for Clarins’ Skin Illusion Natural Radiance Foundation with SPF 10 in "Ivory" and "Nude". Those of you who prefer a powder foundation will like Clarins’ Everlasting Compact Foundation with SPF 15 in "Nude", which is guaranteed to leave your skin looking flawless for up to 15 hours!
To highlight your cheekbones, Lise Watier’s Blush-On Powder in "Libertine" will be perfect for you! Apply this beautiful apricot colour along your cheekbones to thin out your face, or on the apples of your cheeks for a natural, healthy-looking glow.
Let’s move on to eye makeup. Before applying your eye makeup, ensure that your eyebrows are perfectly shaped. If not, pluck them to correct their shape, then apply a bit of eyeshadow or use the right colour of eyebrow pencil to fill in the sparse sections.
For your eyelids, opt for Hot Singles Eye Shadow from NYX Cosmetics. They are intense! Powerfully loaded with pigments this versatile formula lets you make a statement for any occasion. You can then draw a fine line in black or dark brown eyeliner along your top lashline, then max out your lashes with a coat of brown LongiCils mascara from Personnelle.
To give your lips a luscious and alluring look, choose one of Personnelle Cosmetics’s Lipgloss — which have a moisturizing and non-sticky formula—in a soft shade (e.g. "Passionate", "Estimated", "Inspired", etc.).
