Contouring for Fair Skin

Contouring for Fair Skin
I'm not going to lie, I used to be terrified of contouring. Espeically as a fair-skin girl, I always had this fear of looking dirty, muddy or just straight up orange. I've been coming out of my comfort zone and I've found three products that work great for my fair skin. They range from drugstore to high-end, so I think everyone will be able to find one of the products could work for them!

Starting with the most expensive, I love the Lorac Pro Contour palette ($45). I think this is great for an all-around palette, and can work for all skin tones. If you are very fair like me, then the Light Contour shade will work the best for you. It also comes with two other contour shades, a shimmer highlight, a white powder and a yellow powder. The powders are really soft, pigmented and easy to blend.

The next contour powder I love is the Makeup Geek Contour Powder in Break Up ($9). What I love the most about these Makeup Geek powders is the fact that they have so many shades for ALL skin tones. The shade Break Up is for Cool-Porcelain skin, but they also have options for those who want a warmer contour shade. These are also very soft, blendable, and easy to work with.

The last option I have is super affordable, it's the Wet N' Wild Contour Palette in Dulce De Leche ($4). This is the lightest of the all powders, and it has more of a taupe tone to it. It's a huge palette for the price, and it also comes with a yellow highlight that is perfect for under the eyes. I have a full review here if you would like to hear more!

I hope these suggestions are helpful for all you pale-fair-skinned people out there! Sometimes the beauty market doesn't always cater to the very light and to the very dark skin tones. So I hope more companies will come out with products that can work for everyone.

  7. That Lorac palette looks awesome! I've got such fair skin that I have to be really careful with contour kits, otherwise I end up looking like I have patches of dirt on my face haha

  16. I was afraid of contour shades for a long time too. The MUG shade is my favorite! It's perfect for fair skin and blends out so easily.

  18. I really wish we had these brands in the UK, especially Lorac! I'm a pale girl and I'm always slightly terrified of contouring, if I can ever get my hands on any of these I will!

  21. For contouring my fair skin I usually stick to single light contour shades and stay away from palettes, purely because I can usually never use half of the contour shades in the palettes I've found anyway.
