Fair skin tones

If you think that fair skin tones should avoid wearing dark lip colours out of the fear of looking too stark, then ask them to shut up! Pick a lipstick shade that has deep cranberry undertones in it. This colour will create a beautiful cool contrast against fair skin and not look too harsh. To make this colour look more finished, apply a few coats of mascara to balance out the drama.
