Best Eyeshadows, Lipglosses/Lipsticks, Blushes for Fair Skin

Best Makeup for Fair Skin

If there is any one question that I see often asked, it’s for recommendations for a specific skin tone. I think it would be fantastic if we could work together to create a list of recommendations from the people best equipped to give them — YOU!

This part of the Guide seeks to help our fair-skinned beauties find new favorite shades to love. Whether you’re fair-skinned yourself and can offer what you’ve found to work the best or you’re an experienced makeup artist or you have a fair-skinned friend who you know loves such and such product… we want your help and expertise, so please share it with us and everyone else!

To leave a suggestion, simply leave a comment and be sure to let us know what your skin tone is like (you can give your foundation shade if that makes it easier!), whether it’s warm or cool, and then rattle off your suggestions! Suggestions can be from any brand you want!
