A Beauty Guide for Fair Skin


Having fair skin is hard, right? You’re forever searching for products that either (a) don’t make you look orange, or (b) don’t make you look gothic. It’s a tough life, and an expensive one at that! After shopping around for a while – I’ve done the drugstore brands and the department store brands – I’ve decided it’s worth paying that bit extra.

Now, my make up regime mainly consists of  high-end brands with a strict focus on skin care. Cue, By Terry, a French brand that will undoubtedly change your life.

 By Terry Sheer Expert Fluid Foundation in #1 Fair Beige – $92.00 

Apply this to the base of your face (after a primer, yes, use a primer). I like to keep this layer thin; giving a satin finish and making your face appear brighter.

By Terry Cover Expert SPF 15+ in #1 Fair Beige – $92.00

Apply this to the areas that need more coverage, i.e. under the eyes. This will give more of a heavy, matte finish and, so, I use it sparingly; only where it’s needed.

NARS Creamy Concealer in Chantilly – $43.00

Apply this (preferably with a brush) to those areas that need to disappear – we all have them! I can’t recommend this enough: carry one in your purse, it’s a lifesaver.
