10 Makeup tips and tricks for blondes that will make you a bombshell
‘Blondes have more fun’, well that’s what they say. From Marilyn Monroe through to Pamela Anderson, the blonde bombshell image has been a mainstay of film and TV for decades, and it is still an image that many men say that they rate highly, but of course every man has his own taste! Despite this apparent popularity, there are surprisingly few makeup tips around designed specifically for blondes, so we address this problem with our 10 makeup tips and tricks just for blondes:
1. Boost up your eyelashes
Most natural blondes have pale eyelashes, so experiment with mascara, until you find the one that suits you. Usually, the best option for blondes is dark brown, black or dark blue. A quick and relatively inexpensive way to get a longer lasting color to your lashes is to get them tinted.
2. Define your eyebrows
To bring a better definition to the face, but without it appearing unnatural, chose eyebrow products that are one to two shades darker than your hair color, but no more.
3. Tone down the eye shadow
You have a neutral hair color, so heavy tones on your eyes will really stand out and will look unnatural. Soft browns and golds look wonderful on blondes or, if you feel a bit more colorful, light pastels would work the best.
4. Lipstick choices
As a blonde, you have many choices when it comes to lipstick, but stay away from yellow based colors, as that just doesn’t work with blonde hair. The natural choice for blondes is usually pink, but if you want to move from a Barbie look, to more of a Marilyn Monroe image, bright red did wonders for Marilyn!
5. Golden foundation
Natural blondes tend to have pale complexions, so to enhance your skin color, yet still stay looking natural, use gold tinted liquid foundation to warm up the skin or use light shade of bronzer to add warmth to your complexion.
6. Soft blush on your cheeks
To flatter those beautiful blonde locks, use an apricot or pale peach blush; apply it on the apples of your cheeks and blend a little to your temples. And yes, don’t forget to apply a highlighter on your cheekbones for a complimentary glow.
7. Smokey eyes
We said that blondes are best advised to tone down eye makeup, but you can still go for the smokey eye look if you wish, it can look great with blonde hair too; just opt for dark grey instead of black.
8. Platinum blonde
There’s more than one kind of blonde…so bear in mind what kind of blonde you are, when selecting your makeup. Platinum blondes should keep the colors cool to match their hair, because bright colors will stand out too much.
9. Golden blonde
Compliment your golden locks with pinks and peaches for your lips and cheeks, and golds, browns, darker purples or mauves will work well for your eyes.
10. Beach blondes
Caramel or honey colors will bring extra sun to your beach blonde look, but avoid straying into the terra-cotta shades, as they are not sunny enough.
