Colored eye makeup:

Add more colors to your eyes and this will add to your beauty. Using a simple black liner on the top lid with a bronze eye shadow will makes your face look fresh and alive. Your skin will look more youthful with this eye makeup. The eyeliner you use should be a shade or two darker than the eye shadow.

Highlight eyes:

You may use shimmery eye shadows and bold colors like purple etc. If you are not in the habit of using eye shadows, you can concentrate more on eye liners and use black, grey or even brown eyeliners. This will make your eyes beautiful and attracts the attention of all.


Applying a little mascara can do wonders for your eyes. This will make your eyes stand out and get noticed. Choosing black colored mascara is the best for pale skin.

Nail color:

For your nails you must use dark colors instead of light colors. Using reds and corals will look great on pale skin. This will make you get noticed in a crowd.

Perfect skin look:

While doing makeup on pale skin, you must take care to make the skin look perfect. A tanned look is the best but it should be done moderately as too much of a tanned look makes it look unnatural. You can apply a pearl highlighter or gold tinted blusher or bronzer on your arms, neck and the legs and also the cheek bones. As you know, more fair a skin is, the more fuller it looks. As a result, you may look somewhat fat. Applying bronzer or golden shades helps in making your features look sharper and hence less full. Apply the bronzer down the front of your hands, collar bone and the shin bone.

Tinted foundation:

Choosing the right colored foundation is very important when you do the makeup. If you choose the wrong color, everything else you do on your face will go wrong. Try testing with a few colors and see which looks best on your skin. Using a tinted foundation or moisturizer is the best solution. By tinted, it means that the moisturizer you use should be one shade darker than your skin color. If you choose too dark foundation, you will get a clay colored complexion and it will not look natural.
