And just what is my definition of Very Pale Skin? I am around NC10, MAC Matchmaster 1.0 is a very good match, for spot concealing on my face Amazing Cosmetics concealer in Fair (except that it made me break out like nobody's business) and MAKE UP FOR EVER Full Cover concealer in #1 are near perfect.
One thing I found tough when shopping for lipsticks was how different it may be on my skintone compared to others. What might be nude or light on my favorite blogger, it's medium toned and slightly dark or too bright and bold. There's certainly room for deeper, brighter, bolder lips - but I usually focus on eyes and the lips are just a complement. So here's what I found works for my skintone and coloring as an "everyday" light to mid-tone lipsticks!
Here's my bare lips for reference. I have quite a few lip freckles, so it's easy to determine what level of coverage a lip color has.
These warm pinks/pink nudes are probably the first colors I was really comfortable with when I got back into makeup. Previously I'd lean towards the same colors my mom would wear (despite her being a deeper olive skintone) in the mauve range. These are easy to wear with my coloring and tend to not clash too much with whatever else is on my face - always a plus!

Another youtube recommended lip color up, Rimmel Airy Fairy.

Last up, a relatively recent find and favorite, Revlon Super Lustrous in Rose & Shine. It's more sheer than the two above and has more of a sheen. It's a warm rose shade, it does need a little building up to get this level of color but it's very thin so it doesn't feel too thick or slippery with the layers.
What are your favorite warm pinks? Have you tried any of these out? Let me know! Thanks for stopping by. :)
