Hey Everyone! Since you all seemed to love my post on the Best Blushes for Fair Skin : http://wp.me/p2O2wx-7P , I thought I would make a little series of similar posts. This one, as you can probably tell from the title, is about eyeshadows that I think look especially great on those of us with fair skin. Like I said before, fair skinned people can get away with wearing ANY color because we are such a “blank canvas”; but these are the shades that I find are the most universally flattering regardless of skin type/undertone/etc.
Bobbi Brown Candlelight / MAC Ricepaper : These are both great brightening lid colors. Candlelight is more champagne colored, and Ricepaper is more yellow.
Bobbi Brown Bone / MAC Brule : These are both almost invisible flesh tones. Bone is slightly more pigmented.
Urban Decay Tease / MAC Haux : These are both great mauve/brown colors that look amazing in the crease. Tease is moderately more purple.
Urban Decay Naked / Bobbi Brown Wheat / MAC Wedge : These are all neutral medium/light browns that are great for crease and blending. Naked is the most neutral, Wheat is cooler, and Wedge is warmer.
MAC Folie / Urban Decay Buck / NYX Dance The Tides : These are all warm medium browns. Folie is a reddened brown, Buck is a tan brown, and Dance the Tides has a warm copper/orange tint.
MAC Cork : is a unique warm medium brown thats great for the crease and brows.
MAC Shale : is a sheer muted cool purple. I think it is one of the most underrated MAC eyeshadows, I love it!
MAC Naked Lunch : looks much better on pale skin than All That Glitters. It is basically the same peachy pink color, just taken down a few notches.
NYX Tropical : is a great coral/orange shade that doesn’t overpower your whole look.
MAC Expensive Pink : is similar to NYX Tropical, but is much more pink.
Urban Decay Sin : a great frosted silky pink, without being too pink! Looks great on the lid or as a highlight.
Urban Decay Sidecar : is a warm light taupe/brown with heavy silver sparkle.
Urban Decay Darkhorse : is a warm charcoal that isn’t too cool or dark; which makes it a GREAT option for fair skin because it isn’t overpowering.
Urban Decay Toasted / MAC Sable : These are both warm pink/browns. Toasted is slightly pinker, and Sable is slightly more red toned.
MAC Big Bounce Shadow in Count Your Assets : is a a bright cool purple. Its great as a base or on its own. Although this product is discontinued, you can look for something similar. This is just what I have.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Blue Paradise : is a great color for pale people to rock, as most people can’t! It is a medium blue base with purple duochrome.
MAC Paint Pot in Morning Frost : is a slightly cool taupe/brown. This was limited edition, but again, you can easily find something similar.
