Best MAC Products for Fair Skin

Best MAC Products for Fair Skin

As a person who is very pale in complexion, I am always struggling to find colours (especially in lipsticks and blush) which don't make me look like a clown. Sometimes, I find that the products I choose which I think will look nice  with my colour skin and end up looking like a total disaster no matter how lightly I apply them. I have gone through a MAC craze lately and have found some gorgeous products that go great with my skin.

If you are quite pale and can relate to not wanting to look like you are part of the circus, then this list is worth taking note of.


  • Studio Sculpt SPF 15 - This is currently my favourite foundation. I love the way it feels on my skin and the shade NC 15 matches my complexion perfectly. It is ideal for full-coverage.
  • Mineralize SPF 15 - Another great foundation for lighter coverage. It sits well on my skin and it is easy to get that "no make-up make-up look". 



MAC has many beautiful blushes but my ultimate favourite has to be the shade Rosey Outlook. It is a very natural pink which I love to apply lightly to the apple of my cheeks for a natural and healthy look. 



The Prep+Prime Highlighter in Radiant Rose does wonders for concealing imperfections and highlighting my face. It is often very difficult to find a highlighter for pale skin. Everyone kept telling me to go a shade lighter in my powder (or concealer) than my current shade - this proves to be an issue as MAC does not make any shades lighter than my current NC 15. The Prep+Prime Highlighter comes in light shades with yellow undertones and pink undertones (such as Radiant Rose). I would recommend asking a MAC consultant which undertone would be most effective on your skin. 


Japanese Maple - A beautiful soft nude colour.

Speed Dial - A great shade for a bolder lip look. 

Shy Girl - A pretty light pink "every day" colour. 

Velvet Teddy - My all time favourite lipstick (shown in the picture)


(A Tip on Eyeliner)

Lately I've been hearing that brown eyeliner makes eyes stand out on pale skin more than black liner does. I tried this a few days ago as I have always only used black liner and I love the effortless 'pop' that the brown liner gives to my eyes. 


I hope this list helped you fellow fair-skinned ladies out there. Do you have any favourites which compliment pale skin?
