Pale and proud: Celebs who embrace their fair skin

Emma Stone was championing pale skin last night at the premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in Paris.

The young starlet is amongst a raft of celebs who’ve embraced their naturally pale skin in recent years, making the trend a main-stay on and off the catwalk.

Michelle Williams, Dita Von Teese, Cate Blanchett and Kirsten Stewart are just some of the ladies who’ve embraced the paste, giving women across the world confidence to be comfortable in their own skin.

A flawless base is key to creating that sought after luminous glow and Make Up For Ever is a cult foundation amongst pale girls. Try the HD Foundation which has a wide range of light shades to choose from.

Here are some of the beautiful ladies in action and products that will help your pale skin stand out.

Kirsten Stewart

Let’s face it, the Twilight franchise definitely helped to take pale skin mainstream. Kirsten Stewart’s porcelain look reached a younger audience where before we had the bronzed goddesses of The OC and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

K-Stew usually favours a grungy look, so get eyes like hers try luminious dark eyes shadows like MAC's Black Tied which has a silver shimmer.

Cate Blanchett

Mirror mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Cate Blanchett is famed for her flawless skin and the envy of pale and non-pale girls the world over. She has been a loyal ambassador of high end skincare product SK-II for 12 years. Pricey but highly lauded, the brand’s Brightening Derm Specialist serum will take the redness out of pale skin and give you a brighter complexion.

Dita Von Teese

Dita was carving out a niche for pale-skinned girls long before the trend went mainstream. Whether she’s walking the red carpet or the sidewalk, Dita always channels 50s glam with perfectly coifed hair and defined lips. To get her look, we love YSL’s Rouge Volupte Shine lipstick in Pourpre Intouchable.

Michelle Williams

Another gorgeously fair-skinned woman whose rosy cheeks and pixie cut serve as inspiration for many. Sales of NARS blusher in Orgasm skyrocketed when she revealed it as her go-to product, with many other celebrities following suit. Dust a little bit of shimmer on top to make your cheek bones glow even more.

Nicola Roberts

The former Girls Aloud alumni Nicola Roberts used fake tan for years to match the skin tones of band mates like Cheryl Cole and Kimberley Walsh. Ironically, it was when she embraced her beautiful ginger hair and alabaster skin, that she really came into her own, launching her own make-up line and debut solo album.
