So once I went blonde, I immediately realized I would have to make a few adjustments to my makeup routine. With dark hair, I could play up the contrast of pink cheeks and blue-red lipstick with my pale skin. But going blonde brought out the natural redness in my skin. That redness I didn’t want.
My old makeup consisted of bright pink blush, black eyeliner, and lots of dark browns and blacks for shadows. This doesn’t work well for me as a blonde because the natural redness is already brought out, plus the darker shades are too harsh of a contrast.
My new makeup has transformed into peachier, golden shades, with a little bronzer thrown in to mute redness, concealer to help keep shadows and blemishes covered, and brown liner and mascara to soften everything. Using black shadows and mascara when I already have dark eyes and brows brings out the shadows under my eyes and makes them look deep set.
