While your alabaster skin tone is as fair and flawless as that of Snow White, finding the right shade of anything is like searching for a spoolie in a haystack. Even the lightest of colors stands out against your ivory skin and let’s face it, that’s not always a good look. That’s why soft pink, coral and peach shades will enhance your natural beauty … without trying to cover it up or make it look like something it’s not!
So, you’re not quite light and you’re not quite olive. You’re sitting pretty in a happy — skin tone, that is. Medium skin tones have just enough warmth to give off a natural glow, so you’re in luck! Golden-brown, bronze and honey shades work wonders in enhancing your complexion via bronzers or highlighters, while lavender and rich blue shadows make your bright eyes really pop.
Not only do you turn a beautiful shade of gold while having fun in the sun, but your glowing complexion always looks healthy and radiant! All you have to do before heading out the door is enhance your natural skin tone — that includes rosy pink or warm, peach blush and just a hint of shimmer on your cheekbones!
Your rich skin tone can pull off just about ANY bright color. From glossy pink lippies to jewel-toned purple shadow — pigmented cosmetics are your BFF! You can try cranberry-colored or bright orange blush and even a subtle, shimmery bronzer (YES, bronzer!) to enhance your dark skin tone.
