Well, there are two types of fair complexion: pink and yellow tones. Don’t get me wrong because yellow doesn’t imply jaundice yellow shade. It just means light complexions with a warm tone. To perk it up, you can go for slightly orange based reds, though not over the top. A shade like mild orange highlights the golden tones to brighten up your face.
