How to choose the Best LipSense Colors for Fair Skin

By Sharon R. Lee

LipSense has come a long way from its early days as a cult favorite, and it’s now available in nearly 40 shades. But finding the right color for your skin tone can be tough.

If your skin is on the fairer side of the spectrum, there are some things to consider before you buy. Here are six simple tips that will help you choose the best lip color for fair skin:

If your skin is the palest of pale, choose a shade that has more pink than blue undertones.

If your skin is the palest of pale, choose a shade that has more pink than blue undertones.

While many people with fair skin can pull off both colors without issue, pink undertones are generally better for lighter complexions because they look less stark against pale skin. Blue-based hues tend to make fair faces appear washed out and washed up.

Your fair skin may show some pink or red tones if you blush easily.

Your fair skin may show some pink or red tones if you blush easily. If your face turns pink, that’s a good sign of the possibility of having rosy cheeks.

Your fair skin can also show pink or red tones if you have freckles. Freckles are small spots on your skin caused by sun exposure and genetics, which makes them appear darker than the surrounding skin.

Freckles often appear as brown spots and they can range in size from very small to large (about 1 inch in diameter). If you have freckles, chances are that many people will notice them when they see you in person—they’re not something that can be hidden with makeup!

If you have freckles, choose a strong color that will shine against them.

If you have freckles, choose a strong color that will shine against them.

If you don't have freckles, choose a color that will complement your skin tone.

If you have pale skin and want to highlight the lips, choose a lip color with more pink than blue undertones (or vice versa).

A light beige will help hyperpigmentation blend in with your complexion.

A light beige is a great choice for fair skin. It helps cover up hyperpigmentation and freckles, giving you an even skin tone. If you have dark spots on your face, try using a light beige to cover them up. The colors in this category are:

  • Fair Beige

  • Fair Sand

  • Light Beige

Don’t go too dark or too light, or it will make your lips look flat.

If you have fair skin, it is important to choose a lip color that complements your complexion. You should not pick a color that is too dark and make your lips look flat.

This is especially true if you have pale skin. On the other hand, you shouldn’t pick a lip color that is too light or bright (for example, LipSense in “Cougar”).

A good rule of thumb is to choose a color that is one or two shades darker than your natural lip color. If you wear lipstick regularly and know what colors look good on you then stick with them!

Find a gently shimmering pink to enhance your natural glow.

One of the best ways to look like you have fuller lips is to choose a lip color with a subtle shimmer. Shimmers will help highlight your natural lip color and make them appear plumper, so use it sparingly.

The best way to find an appropriate shimmering pink for fair skin tones is to take a look at the tones in your hair.

If you're blonde or light brown, stick with pinks that are close to that shade; if you're red-headed, then look for warm peachy-pink shades (an orangey brown can work well here as well).

For brunettes and darker shades of brown hair, go lighter: try pastels like bright fuchsia or deep magenta instead of traditional reds.

Don’t go too bright; it can overwhelm the rest of your appearance.

You may be thinking that you should go for a big, bright color that will really stand out. But this can actually have the opposite effect, as it could overwhelm your skin tone and make you look like a clown.

Instead of going too bright and cheerful, stick to muted shades like beige or pink. These are good choices for fair-skinned people because they don’t clash with their natural coloring—but they still add a pop of color!

A yellow undertone to the color will complement your complexion.

If you have a yellow undertone to your skin, then try colors with yellow undertones as well. An example of this is the Color Story “Yellow Hues” which will look great on fair skin because it brings out the golden color of your skin. Yellow complements fair skin tones and makes them appear brighter and more vibrant.

If you have light or pale complexion, then try going for one of these colors:

  • Grape Pop (Fair)

  • Barefoot Blush (Light)

Go warm with bronze and neutral with browns, instead of dramatic burgundy or purple hues.

Instead of going for dramatic hues like purple or burgundy, try warmer and more neutral shades like bronze and brown.

These colors will not only suit your skin tone but also make you look much younger than your age. If you're already a fan of these shades, then it's time to introduce them into your daily makeup routine.

I recommend starting with a lip pencil that matches your natural lip color as closely as possible this way, no matter how light or dark the lipstick is going to be, it will still look good on you! 

You can also choose from a range of shades that complement each other: if one shade is too light for your complexion then combine it with another darker one; if one shade is too dark for your complexion then combine it with another lighter one!

You can find lip colors to accentuate your fair complexion and make you look radiant

If you have fair skin, you're probably used to finding that lipsticks don't look quite right on your face.

It's not that they don't match your complexion—it's just that they can make your lips appear dull or washed out.

You want a bold color that accentuates the shape of your lips and brings out their natural color. You also want something long-lasting so it doesn't fade or smudge during the day!

How do you find the best lip color for fair skin? Here are some tips:

  • Avoid dark reds and purples—they'll make your lips look pale instead of giving them a glow.

  • Go for a darker pink or bright coral instead of red; they'll look more vibrant than dark shades like burgundy or maroon will on someone with light skin tones.

Top 5 Best LipSense Colors for Fair Skin

There are several LipSense colors that look great on fair skin. Here are the top 5 best lip colors:

  • Lipsense Lip Color in *Enchanted* (pink nude) – This shade looks good on fair skin because it's not too light or dark, but rather somewhere in between. The pink undertone of this color is perfect for making your teeth look whiter and your lips appear fuller.

  • Lipsense Lip Color in *Rosebud* (shimmering rose) - This color is perfect for those who want a little bit of shimmer without going overboard with glittery sparkles! It makes you feel as if you're wearing makeup without actually having any makeup on at all! It's also great for making your teeth appear whiter due to its cool undertones.

  • Lipsense Lip Color in *Violette* (deep purple) - A deep purple lip color may seem intimidating at first, but once you try it out, you’ll see just how beautiful this shade can be on fair skin tones! The deepness of the purple tone enhances hazel eyes while still looking natural enough not to stand out too much from the rest of your face – especially when paired with neutral eye shadow colors like taupe browns and khaki greens.

Lipsense Lip Colors That Look Good On Fair Skin

To start, stick to neutral or pinkish tones. These colors will coordinate with most outfits and make your lips look fuller than they are naturally:

How to Apply Liquid Lipstick and Avoid a Mess

If you are new to liquid lipstick, consider using a lip liner. This will help you keep the color from bleeding and smudging.

If you don't want to use a lip liner, try using a lip brush instead of your finger. It is best not to use your fingers because they can spread bacteria around your mouth.
