Makeup for Fair Skin, Brown Hair, and Green Eyes
Women with brown hair, fair skin, and green eyes have a natural beauty that requires only a light makeup routine, but there are a great variety of cosmetic options when you do want to glam it up!
Green eyes are one of the rarest eye colors, so you should definitely make the most of your exotic looks by illuminating them with the right cosmetic routine, just like Kristen Stewart and Lucy Hale do!
This hub will give you makeup tips for brown hair, green eyes, and fair skin.
We will focus on eyebrows, foundation and concealer, eye makeup, and blush and lip colors.
The best part of having those green eyes is that they allow you to wear more daring colors on your lids. Your best eyeshadow colors will be green, light brown, pink, violet, and blue. At night, your green eyes will look especially great wearing a palette of emerald, light green, and citrine shadows.
Brown mascara will suit your eyes if your hair color is light to medium brown. Women with darker brown hair will look best with black mascara.
Look into a customized eyeliner made especially for green eyes, such as Physicians Formula Enhancing Custom Eye 3-in-1 Eye Enhancing Tool. It contains an eyeliner, eye shadow, and highlighter tool in one.
Dark brown eye liner will flatter your eyes. Since you have green eyes, you can try a subtle cat eye look by extending your eyeliner past your natural eyelid line. Coat you top outer lashes with more mascara to accentuate this look.
Foundation and Concealer
Try a reliable brand of foundation that is known for providing a smooth finish with even coverage. This will help you with the skin issues below as well.
Women with fair skin often battle with blue or purple coloration under their eyes. When buying concealer, if there are samples, smear a bit over one of the veins on your wrist. This will give you a good idea of how the concealer will cover the blue or purple under your eyes.
Women with pale skin sometimes battle pink or red discoloration on their face. Blood flow, acne, the sun, diet, and dehydration all play a role in this. Your foundation should blend with your skin to even out this discoloration. You can take an extra beauty step to help prevent this, and show off your skin!
- Give your eyebrows a flattering shape, and remove spare hairs outside of your brow lines. You will notice once you start plucking or waxing around your brows that maintaining them becomes easier. You will experience less discomfort with each subsequent hair removal session.
- If your eyebrows are sparse, feel free to fill them in with brown pencil. Make sure that the pencil matches the color of the hair on your brows. Otherwise you will look like you have caked on an odd color.
What shade of brown is your hair color?
The lip colors you wear help tell the world a little bit about yourself. Luckily, you have a lot of variety when it comes to your best lipstick shades. How you look when you put on your lipstick should always translate to how you feel:
- On days you want to look a little feminine and sexy you can also wear brighter pink colors, like Hot Pink Rage in MILANI Color Statement Lipstick, like the color Lucy Hale is wearing (right).
- You can also try muted pink colors on days you want to play the class act. Clinique Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick in Bamboo Pink helps you show off without being obvious! In any of these colors you will be absolutely kissable!
- You can also wear brown-tinged hues and violets to your heart's content!
Your best blush colors will be pink and very light brown. Try adding a dot of blush along the front of your nose, lightly across your forehead and a touch along the sides of your hairline.
Being fair-skinned, you simply need to make sure that you choose very light blush shades. It is easy to overpower your skin color.
Whatever you do, embrace your looks because your fair skin is beautiful!
