Looking Good




It’s not often I open a magazine and see beautiful, pale skinned models advertising fashion and beauty looks (afterall, pale is not considered cool remember). However, things are looking up in this months “Look” magazine published here in the UK.

Now whilst we may be a long way off making the cover, the second page and a few other pages within this issue of the magazine are fronted by a stunning model (unfortunately I’ve scoured the magazine and cannot find her name anywhere). Even so, I really applaud Look magazine for featuring a range of models of all different skintones.

There is nothing I hate more when magazines do fashion features that are only suitable for tanned skin, as I think what’s the point in me buying this if it won’t suit me? Thankfully this issue does diversify, and hopefully it will open the floodgates for more publications to follow suit.

Afterall, it’s not just lack of make-up shades that us fairer folk struggle with finding – clothing choices can also have an impact. This is why it’s refreshing to see Look realise that not everyone is bronzed, and just because we are not doesn’t mean to say we don’t deserve to find nice clothes that suit us – not wash us out or make us feel self conscious. I have posted some of the pictures from the editorial above. Let me know what you think!

  1. First of all love your blog! I am of the fairer culture as well! My blogs name is Tea, China and Fair skin. teachinaandfairskin.blogspot.com
    And I believe that pale skin is beautiful as well and I very much appreciate the tips that you share here 🙂 With people like you making fair skin popular, there will be a pale skinned beauty on the front of that cover some day. Keep up the good work!


  2. Hey Lindsay! 🙂 Thanks for your lovely comment. It's a slow battle but hopefully people will see pale skin is not something that you should be ashamed of. I will take a look at your blog also, thanks for sharing! 🙂
