Makeup for Blonde Hair Brown Eyes: All the Secrets to Enhance Your Look
Hello blondes, today’s post is just for you! Be it “fake” or natural, wheat-colored hair just has that special something that sets us apart from the rest, doesn’t it? Some of us dye our hair out of mere curiosity, or because we feel like our natural color is a bit dull, or we’ve simply gotten bored with it, or maybe because we just want to experience – if even for only one day – what it feels like to walk around looking like a doll. But whatever the reason, there’s no denying that a sun-kissed head of hair immediately makes us feel safer, more beautiful, more intriguing…
As for me, I used to be a natural blonde. So natural, in fact, that when I was a kid my friends called me “Lemon Head”. But with time, my hair lost its natural golden tone and now I am a slave of the dye! Time has taught me, however, that it can be a beautiful slavery, and today I want to share with you some secrets to always look radiant. First of all, remember that if you decide to dye your hair, you have to be willing to put in a sustained effort, to keep it looking impeccable and avoid those ugly dark roots which make us look messy, dirty and disorganized. I realize that it was actually fashionable some time ago, but never in my book: that is one bandwagon you’ll never see me hopping on!
If you too are part of the growing Blonde Hair + Brown Eyes team, here is my advice to you: to enhance the look of anyone with blonde hair and brown eyes, there’s no better ally than makeup (though this is true for every woman, regardless of hair or eye color). And the most effective makeup for blonde hair and brown eyes, as I’ve come to learn, is a simple one!
Makeup for Blonde Hair and Brown Eyes: Enhance Your Look with these basic tips
If you’re one of those ladies with blonde hair and brown eyes, you may feel like you’re a “second rate” blonde, but really, you couldn’t be more wrong! In fact you should be celebrating, as you can choose from a much more varied color palette than your “colleagues” with blue or green eyes. Any shade of black and gray, for example, is simply perfect to highlight hazel or chocolate-colored eyes. And these tones look fabulous both with fair/pink skin and with darker/olive complexions.
When you’re putting on makeup for an important event, I suggest you go for a nice “smokey eye” effect that plays with different shades of brown (it’ll look amazing on you, but a blue-eyed girl could never pull it off…). And if you really want to nail it, try to find a brown color that matches the most intense tone of your own iris, and go from there: this will really call attention to your eyes, enhancing their beauty in unexpected ways!
Another color which could become your best friend this spring-summer is orange: it goes with nearly any skin tone, and will add a charmingly fresh touch to your look. And while you can use it as a main tone or shade, it also works great as a background, blending in nicely with the above-mentioned brown. Just remember that sometimes less is more, so please… no makeup on the beach!
Finally, when it comes to makeup for blonde hair and brown eyes, you can’t forget the eyebrows. In fact, they’re the key to your whole look, so grab your best pencil and brush, and get to work! You’ll want to make sure that your eyebrows match your hair, which usually means a shade or two darker than your hair color (but not too dark: that looks awfully unnatural on blondes…). And to really nail down that intense and bewitching look, you’ll also want to give them excellent definition. Personally, I prefer thicker brows, which happen to be all the rage these days, but I adapt to what I’ve got (mine are neither too thick nor too thin), and I try to resist the temptation to “draw on” something that’s not there…
