We may be seeing the first exciting hints of spring, but we’re already considering skipping the fake tan entirely. Well, this week at least. Everyone from Liv Tyler to Dianna Agron are going more St Ives than St Tropez, so it’s time to embrace our UK glow and be happy with pale. Hey, it works wonders for Robert Pattinson!
Here are our top three tips on how to make the most of pale skin:
Any bright, bold shock of colour on the lips will set off pale skin and make it glow. We love No7 Stay Perfect Lipstick in Gay Geranium, £10 – the perfect spring pout.
Give cheeks a glow so you look healthily pale, rather than pasty pale. Pick a coral colour and keep it on the apples of your cheeks (they’ll stand out when you smile – good application tip!).
- If you’re afraid to ditch the tan completely, switch to a tinted moisturiser like Estée Lauder Sheer Tint Release Advanced Multi-Protection Anti-Oxidant Moisturiser, £32. It adapts to your skintone so you get a really natural but subtle glow. SB
