Hi, my name is Taylor Babaian. I'm a celebrity makeup artist and today I'm going to show you what color lipstick to choose for fair skin and brown hair. So to get this look on Bianca I'm going to be using L'Oreal Paris Colour Riche Lip Colour in British red. So one of my favorite looks on fair skin and dark hair is kind of like that vintage 50s look with a darker lip. So we're going to pair it with a nice neutral eye. I'm going to scrape a little bit of that lip color off my hand. You want to make sure the skin is really clean especially when you're choosing a bolder lip and we're going to apply this beautiful red lip color. I like to go with a little bit, almost like a V at the bow of the mouth and then again at the base or on the lower lip and then basically connect the dots. This is kind of like an easy way to apply a dark lip especially when you want it almost perfect. So for this we're actually going for a very specific look, more of that vintage 50s but for brown hair I always like to do something a little bit bolder on the mouth especially when the skin is fair so that the lips don't disappear. You want something that kind of creates a balance. You don't want to be just all fair on the inside and then have the dark basically overshadow the face. You need a little bit of balance. So especially when it's paired with a neutral eye like we have on Bianca. If you had a smoky eye you could do a little bit of a more nude but even with the nudes with brown hair I like to add a little bit of color whether it's a peach or a little bit of a pink, something so that it's just not completely faded especially when you have fair skin. You don't want to look like you have no lips. So we finished Bianca's beautiful bold mouth. It's a great color to complement her soft eyes with her fair skin and dark hair. A great look for Bianca and her brown hair. So there you have it. That's how you choose lip color for fair skin and brown hair. My name is Taylor Babaian. Thanks for watching.
