Finding a lip color that suits both your skin tone and personality can take time. While women with darker skin tones seem to be able to pull of just about any color from deep purple to bright orange, women with fairer skin tend to opt for more natural shades.

Although inevitably every woman is a unique canvas with unique tastes, these are some of the lipstick shades we recommend if you have fair skin and are looking for a general ballpark to work within.

Raspberry or Coral Pink

Emma Watson is often spotted with a matte pink shade and gloss. It’s soft and feminine for those days when you’re feeling more girl-next-door than fierce.

Orange Red

Emma also shows that orange-reds are a stunning look for her pale complexion too.

Bright Red

Emma Stone doesn’t shy away from bright colors and is proof of just how well a bright red or pink lipstick can work with fair skin.

Deep Red

Game Of Throne‘s Emilia Clarke has very fair skin and often wears a soft pink shade on set. Occasionally. she rocks a deep red which changes up her style completely and creates a Snow White kind of look.


And nudes can be a gorgeous choice too. Helena Bonham Carter shows off her porcelain complexion by keeping her hair and eyebrows dark and opting for nude or red shades.
