Fair skinned beauty

Taking care of fair skin can be a daunting task. The lighter your skin, the more it seems to show every mark and makeup mishap. The following are ten of OROGOLD’s fool-proof tips to master your fair skin.

Drink Water
Water is the key to keeping your body and your skin healthy. It is recommended that you drink eight glasses a day.

Eat Healthy
Foods such as papayas, apples, and leafy greens can promote healthy skin. On the other hand, eating foods that are high in fat, sodium, or sugar can lead to unwanted breakouts.

To maintain healthy, fair skin year round, invest in SPF 15 or higher sunscreen to apply daily. Fair skin is more prone to sunburns, and it is important to preemptively prevent against these.

Get Sleep
The first step to maintaining healthy-looking fair skin is sleep. Fair skin can often be so light that it appears translucent. Therefore, veins and bags near the eyes can become accentuated if you are not getting enough sleep. Healthy adults should get a minimum of eight hours a night.

One of the biggest flaws with choosing a foundation for fair skin is that people often choose a foundation that is darker than their skin tone or the wrong undertone for their skin in order to look tanner. In direct sunlight, this change will be very noticeable, and the foundation will tend to be more streaky or hard to blend if it does not match your skin.

Fair skin can show blemishes much more clearly that other skin tones. If you have a noticeable red spot, using a green-tinted concealer can reduce its appearance by canceling out the red hues.

When choosing an eyeshadow for fair skin, consider your eye color. Usually shades with a subtle tint of the color of your eye will flatter your eyes and face. Avoid nudes because they can make your eyes appear washed out or lacking dimension.

Eyeliner and Mascara
Eyeliner should always be one to three shades darker than your eyeshadow and never lighter. Light-colored eyeliner can cause the same washed out effect, especially with fair skin. Also, stick to a black mascara. The contrast of the black makes your eyes pop against your fair skin more so than brown or clear mascara does.

Lip Color
Though nude lips are in trend, women with fair skin should steer clear of this look. The nude color will make your lips look non-existent, making your face look flat and paper-like rather than full of depth and dimension. Instead, use bright lipsticks such as reds or corals because these contrast excellently against light skin tones.

Blush or Bronzer
Blush is one of the best tools to bringing color to your fair skin. Apply blush on the top of the cheeks in order to add depth and warmth to your face. If you are a bit skeptical of blush, bronzer can be another solution to add a little life into your face. Bronzer is applied on the cheek bones, nose, chin, and forehead in order to give a natural sun-kissed look.
