Let’s talk about finding you the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin, pale skin and redheads today! I’ve written a lot about many of the different MAC matte lipsticks, Satin, Amplified, and all kinds of red lipsticks as well, but if there’s one brand I am super excited to share with you, it’s Charlotte Tilbury!
Back when I lived in London, up until just a few weeks ago (I’m currently taking a little writer’s retreat in France for a few months before moving back to London), I was actually hired by Charlotte Tilbury.
I still chose to go work at MAC Cosmetics again – just because of the number of products and crazy colors that weren’t yet available in the Charlotte Tilbury lipstick colors, eyeshadow palettes, and blushes.
Yet, Charlotte Tilbury is a luxury makeup brand I love very much, which embodies the daring looks and feelings of the London makeup scene.
I’ll be breaking down all the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin, pale skin, and redheads in this post, but stay tuned, as guides to the best lipsticks for medium skin, dark skin, olive skin, Asian skin, Indian skin, and more are on the way!

10 Best Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick for Fair Skin & Redheads
To find the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin, pale skin, or any kind of skin tone, whether you’re blonde, a brunette, or a redhead, you need to know what undertone your skin has: cool, neutral, or warm.
Redheads tend to have very pale skin, and often have cool undertones (the veins appear more blue when you look at them) which make some lipsticks like Faux and Brave by MAC Cosmetics especially awesome on them.
Neutral undertones have an equal amount of blue and green when you look at your veins, and you can basically wear any kind of Charlotte Tilbury lipstick shade – provided they match your eye color and hair color (typically, I would avoid applying orange lipstick that looks too brown on a redhead).
Warm undertones will see their veins appear greener when they look at them, and you’ll want to wear warmer-toned lipsticks.
To take the example of MAC Cosmetics once again, I would apply nude brown lipsticks like Taupe, Yash, or Marrakesh on warmer skin tones.
Now that this is all said, I’ll tell you here all about the most beautiful lipstick shades I’ve found for you, so you can find the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin, pale skin, blondes, and redheads!
My ICONIC matte nude-pink lipstick for a kiss of Pillow Talk magic!
The most iconic, the most beautiful, and probably the most famous and best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for pale skin, fair skin, and even medium skin is the Matte Revolution lipstick Pillow Talk Original.
Since its release, we’ve seen a few more shades of the incredible Pillow Talk lipstick being released, with more intense, darker colors which would suit dark and Indian skin tones as well.
They all contain Lipstick Tree & Orchid extract, which basically gives the lips a smooth glow and provides comfort and a beyond-honest wear time.
If you’re after the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick colors for fair skin tones, from ultra-pale to quite medium skin, you’ve got something stunning with Pillow Talk Original.
One Pillow Talk lipstick is sold every two minutes, and with the ultra-moisturizing formula perfect for anyone of absolutely any age, it’s pretty easy to understand why this magical nude is such a best selling Charlotte Tilbury lipstick.
Magical matte lipstick in a delicate rose-bud pink hue
The Matte Revolution Wedding Belles lipstick is part of the Look of Love lipstick range, and it’s one of the most incredible shades of nude Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for pale skin, fair skin, and redheads.
We’ve got once again the classic, iconic formula of the best selling Matte Revolution lipsticks, which feel utterly comfortable on the lips and last up to 10 hours.
The color is full, and described as a ‘rose-bud pink hue’, which is super wearable on a daily basis, but also incredible if what you’re after is the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for a wedding.
On fair skin tones and pale skin tones, we’ve got with the Wedding Belles lipstick something really princess-y, very nude, yet visible enough that the shade brings a healthy flush to the lips.
A bright fuchsia moisturising lipstick with a satin finish that makes a statement
Some of the best shades of Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and pale skin might belong to the Matte Revolution range, but if there’s one absolutely beautiful collection I personally love, it’s the K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipsticks – and the Velvet Undeground lipstick in particular.
These are created with Lipstick Tree extracts and light-diffusing pigments, which mean that the lipstick doesn’t only give color to your lips, but also reflects the light, making your lips appear fuller and, as Charlotte Tilbury says ‘kissable‘.
If you’re looking for the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for redheads and pale skin, I have always thought that fuchsia and raspberry lipsticks were some of the only colors that could bring health and glow to our lips from the first moment they touch them.
The Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G lipstick in Velvet Underground is no different; with a beautiful satin finish and a bright raspberry shade, it’s perfect whether you’re looking for summer or winter lipstick.
A taupe nude matte lipstick for an everyday, kissable lip look
I do think that the Velvet Underground lipstick we’ve just seen is one of the most beautiful shades, and the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin, pale skin, redheads, blondes, and brunettes alike when you want something really lively.
But I also do get that not everyone will want to go out with bright pink lipstick, even though, in my opinion, Velvet Underground is one of the most beautiful Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks for olive skin tones.
In those times when all you want is a dash of color and a very nude lipstick, you’re going to want to check out the Matte Revolution lipstick in Very Victoria.
This is yet another one of the most popular shades of Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and pale skin, as it offers this really trendy nude taupe, brownish color that looks good on almost all skin tones.
Charlotte Tilbury is famous for creating lipstick shades inspired by celebrities, and the Very Victoria lipstick was inspired by none other than Victoria Beckham.
That’s when you start to understand why it’s such a bestseller, with a perfect brown, 90s lipstick color that is perfect as an everyday nude lipstick.
A nude-brown lipstick for a matte 90s supermodel-inspired lip look
Now, the Matte Revolution lipstick in So 90s is one of my ultimate favorite shades of Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin, pale skin, and even medium to dark skin tones.
I’m crazy about 90s brown lipsticks, and if you’re looking to create that 90s-era type of brown, effortless lip look, then all you have to do is go for it.
The So 90s lipstick is part of the Matte Revolution range, which means it contains 3D glowing pigments, Lipstick Tree, and Orchid extracts, all blended together to create one of the most comfortable, most beautiful brown lipstick shades of the whole brand.
Looking for the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and pale skin? Yes, indeed the So 90s lipstick will look stunning, statement yet kind of nude at the same time, and perfect paired with some light gold eyeshadow or sharp black eyeliner.
But if you’re ever after a beautiful Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for dark skin as well, you’d do well to check it out too, as it’s clearly one of the most beautiful nude lipsticks from the brand.
A true ruby red matte lipstick for a red carpet-inspired pout
The shade Red Carpet Red is one of the most popular Charlotte Tilbury lipstick shades for fair skin, medium skin, Indian skin, and quite everyone, to be honest.
Why? Because, just like some of the most famous MAC red lipsticks like Ruby Woo, Viva Glam 1, or Russian Red, Red Carpet Red is versatile and suits absolutely every skin tone.
We’re looking here at some of the best shades for someone looking for the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and pale skin, from redheads to brunettes, and Red Carpet Red offers a full, ruby red color, a super comfortable matte finish, and a very-easy-to-use lipstick color.
I’ve always admired the tip of the Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution lipsticks because they’re some of the best on the market; they help beginners follow the shape of their lips, and even if you’re looking for lipstick for fair skin and thin lips, they’ll still be easy to use.
A bright blue-toned pink lipstick with a modern matte finish
If you’re looking for the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin with blue undertones, and you’re into bright lipstick shades, you’re going to love the color Electric Poppy.
It was inspired by Poppy Delevingne, and the bright matte pink cherry color is perfect for spring, summer, and even wintertime.
With this one, I’d apply a touch of shimmery green eyeshadow, or leave it as is, with just some black eyeliner and mascara, if you’re more of a nude makeup type of girl to start with.
You’ve got the same kind of formula as the other famous Charlotte Tilbury lipstick colors from the Matte Revolution range like Pillow Talk and Red Carpet Red, which means the lipstick doesn’t bleed, feels hydrating on the lips, gives them a fuller glow, and stays comfortable throughout the day.
A soft, berry-pink matte lipstick
Later on, I’ll talk about the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for medium lips, but in the meantime, while we’re talking about redheads and blondes, and anyone with fair skin, you’re going to want to try out the shade Amazing Amal from the Hot Lips 2 range.
And well, in my opinion, the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and pale skin, especially during fall and wintertime, is the Amazing Amal lipstick.
It’s a matte lipstick too, from the Matte Revolution range, and its color is intoxicating to me. I don’t think there’s one type of skin tone on whom berry and burgundy lipsticks don’t look good.
Whether you’re after the best Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks for Indian skin, Asian skin, or pale or fair skin, you’ve got one of the best shades ever created the Charlotte Tilbury with the Hot Lips 2 Amazing Amal lipstick.
A pink coral matte lipstick
The Gracefully Pink lipstick is another shade from the Look of Love Lipsticks, which means it’s perfect if you’re looking for the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for weddings, whether you’re the mother of the bride or a bridesmaid.
Brides usually tend to go for nude colors like Pillow Talk or Very Victoria, but it happens that when you have a spring or summer wedding, you’re going to want to go for a bright pink or a beautiful coral lipstick.
And in those cases, some of the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick colors will be from the Matte Revolution range, as you know they’ll keep your lips hydrated during the day, will stay matte, and will not bleed or feather.
Gracefully Pink is, in my opinion, the best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and pale skin if you’re looking for something utterly different from the usual nude lipsticks, especially for the warm weather.
A pinkish red with a good touch of coral, and beautiful on any type of skin tone, from very pale to very dark.
A bright coral lipstick in my moisturising, satin-finish formula
The Hot Emily lipstick is part of the Hot Lips collection, like the Electric Poppy lipstick, and it offers a true coral shade, perfect whether you have pale skin or fair skin with warm undertones.
I’d never recommend a coral lipstick for olive skin, just because I have a fair olive skin tone (NW15 in MAC foundation and 1.2P in The Ordinary foundation) and it just looks bad on me – unless I wear tons of bronzer.
And that’s something I don’t mind, especially since it’s easy to do and just takes a few minutes. The best Charlotte Tilbury lipstick for fair skin and warm or cool undertones for spring and summertime is, hence, the Hot Emily lipstick.
It brings this splash of color to your lips that need only be accompanied with black mascara, or, if you want to go a step further, some light blue eyeshadow as well.
One of the most beautiful Charlotte Tilbury lipstick shades for any time of the year, if it were only up to me, and perfect on pale redheads and warm-toned fair skin tones with blonde hair and brown hair.
