Things to Consider When Choosing the Best Lipstick Shade for Fair Skin

Know Your Undertone

Now that you have the shades that work well on fair skin tones, understanding the undertone is equally important to select the perfect lipstick shade. Every person has a different undertone that you can check based on the color of your veins. People who have green or olive-colored veins have a warm undertone. Blue and purple color veins indicate a cool undertone. Those with a mix, having a bluish-green shade, have a neutral undertone. Based on the undertone, you can choose the palette shades that best suit you.

Warm undertone – Bold orange, bold reds, terracotta, chocolate, etc.

Cool undertone – Cherry red, pink, peach, light nudes, etc.

Neutral undertone – Mix and match both warm and cool undertone shades.

Correspond the Lip Shade with Eye Color

A simple trick to find the perfect lipstick shade for your fair skin is to check your eye shade. Generally, the best shade for your skin tone is the one that corresponds to your eye shade. For example, if you have hazel brown eyes, going for a similar shade of brown lipstick will give you a natural look. Always ensure when you buy a long lasting lipstick, it is in tune with your eye shade.

Patch Test

When nothing works, a patch test is always the best idea to help select the best lipstick shade for fair skin. You can apply the lipstick around the wrist and see if it suits your skin. If yes, it will suit your face too.

Tips for Long Lasting Lipstick Shades


In three simple steps, your lipstick will stay brighter longer without transfer and smudge. While the quality of lipstick is important, how you apply lipstick is equally crucial. Always start with exfoliating your lips and moisturizing them to keep them hydrated. After that, apply lip primer and line using a lip liner. Use matte lipstick to layer the pigments for a perfect finish. Blotting the lipstick shade will help the pigment go deeper and stay longer on your lips. 

When it comes to buying the best lipstick shade for fair skin, quality is always in mind. Look for waterproof, smudge-proof, and transfer-proof lipstick online that gives you an all-day glam look without messing up your appearance.
