Pale Girl Diaries: The Best Red Lipsticks for Fair Skin

I’m feeling the Snow White vibes looking at the photos in this post! It’s time for another section of the Pale Girl Diaries, and this time we’re going bold. I wanted to keep building on this series because it’s been really successful so far! So in this post I have six red lipsticks for fair skin that will hopefully help you find your perfect shade and formula.

When I’m looking for a red lipstick, I want longevity and pigment. I haven’t found a sheer red lipstick that I’ve fallen in love with (if you have a recommendation you think will change my mind, throw it my way!) so I tend to stick to what I know. In my opinion, a liquid lipstick is your best option for rocking a red lip, so there’s quite a few of those in here. I’ve also included two traditional lipsticks for those of you who aren’t into a liquid formula.

Pale Girl Diaries: Best Blushes for Fair Skin

I’m back with more tips for my fair-skinned friends out there. I know the struggle of thinking a blush is absolutely gorgeous, only to have it be a blazing red stamp on your cheek when you apply it. Blushes are one of the more deceiving beauty products in the pan, and in my opinion, are one of the hardest products to buy. It’s really difficult to know just how a blush is going to apply and look on the skin! Which is why I’ve collected my favourites to share with you. If you need more Pale Girl Diaries instalments, be sure to check out The Best Nude Lipsticks and The Best Highlighters for fair skin! Let me know what other products you want included in this series. Without further ado: here are The Best Blushes for Fair Skin.

Spring is the perfect time to highlight natural beauty, or at least that’s what I’ve heard. I like wearing less makeup in the warmer months, and I try to embrace more of a natural glow. I’ve also really been trying to amp up my skincare, which is a losing battle when you’re a University student with little to no expendable income. Good quality products can be expensive, but investing in products that actually work is really important. The following products have become staples in my morning routine, and I’d wholeheartedly recommend them if you want a fresh faced glow!

Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Pale Girl Diaries: Best Nude Lipsticks for Fair Skin

Nude lipsticks are the little black dresses of the cosmetics world. Brown nudes, pink nudes, peachy nudes, whatever the undertone, nudes will always be in style in one form or another. As a girl with fair skin (really fair, I’m talking the lightest shade of foundation is still sometimes too dark for me) I always find it really difficult to find the perfect nude. I know I’m not the only one who looks at swatches of gorgeous nudes, buys one, and then tries it on only to find out it’s straight up coral on my skintone. Well friends, I come bearing good news: there are nudes out there for us pale girls. I’ve rounded up a few of my favourites to share with you. Swatches at the bottom of the list!
