Since I have such fair skin, I used to think that every lip shade I tried accentuated my blemishes or made me look like Casper. I was petrified of lipstick yet simultaneously so infatuated with it.

Bold, MAC and beautiful

I’ve always had fair skin and I constantly struggled with color whether it was on my eyes or lips. That was before I entered the world of cosmetics and learned as much as I have about skin, color and makeup artistry.

With that, my biggest recommendation for rocking a bold lip is to analyze your skin and make sure (no matter what!) that you have the correct foundation shade, texture and coverage for your own skin tone. Because guess what, ladies? Once you master the basics of your own skin profile, you can rock ANY lipstick. That's not an exaggeration.

Add a little confidence to the mix and everyone will want to know your lipstick secrets. To prove it, I’ve featured myself wearing three different shades so you know just how easy it is to rock different colors, even if you thought you couldn't because of your fair skin.
