The Ultimate Guide to Flattering Makeup for Blondes The Ultimate Guide to Flattering Makeup for Blondes The Ultimate Guide to Flattering Makeup for Blondes

If you’re a blondie, then you know all too well that some makeup colors can be a tad too harsh when paired with your light hair hue. Whether the bright colors veer your complexion into clown territory or they wash you out, it’s safe to say that finding the right balance can be difficult if you’re blonde. It’s definitely not impossible, though. Just follow our makeup tips for blondes below. You’re welcome!

1. Start with Your Skin Tone

Knowing whether your skin is cool or warm is the first step to finding the most flattering makeup to accompany your blonde mane. A good rule of thumb is that if you have blueish veins on the inside of your wrist, you have cool undertones, whereas greenish veins point towards warm undertones. Once you know what you’re working with, you want to find shades in the same family—cool shades with cool undertones and warm shades with warm undertones.

2. Get Pretty in Pink

Blondes look especially beautiful in light, natural makeup, which means pinks can be really flattering. To get the look, stock your makeup bag with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Avenue des Roses, L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Blush, and L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in Wild Rose.

3. Glam It Up in Platinum

or a night on the town, instead of rocking your regular statement eye, why not let platinum inspire your look? With just a sweep of varying gray eye shadows and a hint of a darker crease, you’ll be able to add depth, dimension, and total Hollywood glam to your evening look. Bring the look to life with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Pocket Palette Eye Shadow in Silver Couture.

4. Take It Up a Notch in Taupe

Looking for a new signature shade? Blonde, meet taupe. With touches of bronze and tan, this versatile neutral shade is perfect for an allover wash of color on your lid or for added definition to rock the season’s newest upside down eye makeup trend. Intrigued? Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Bronzed Taupe to give it a try.

5. Make Others Green with Envy

Want to add a little springtime freshness to your look? Try incorporating a series of green shadows into your repertoire. With just a swipe of color, green can help brighten the look of your eyes—especially if you’re a hazel-eyed hottie. Try the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eye Shadow in Army Camo or the L’Oréal Paris Infallible 24HR Eye Shadow in Golden Sage.

6. Rock a Classic Red Lip

There’s nothing like a blonde with a bold red lip. Just look to classic Hollywood to see exactly what we mean. To get the bombshell look, make sure to grab a true cherry red lipstick, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in DIY Red, if you have warmer skin, and a blue-based red if you have a cooler complexion.

7. Find the Right Mascara for You

If you have naturally blonde hair, you may also have pale lashes. And since a bold statement eye isn’t complete without defined curls, look for a mascara that complements what you’ve got. A black may be too harsh, so try a black brown or brown for everyday wear. Try the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara in Black Brown.

8. Make Sure Your Brows Are on Fleek

Undone brows are in right now! To get the look, you’ll want to brush your brows up following the natural curve of your arch—but instead of combing them over to look a little less shaggy, just leave them up. Next, fill them in with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Kabuki Blender that is only one shade darker than your hair. Top it off with a clear brow gel to hold the undone look in place. Voila! The perfect frames to tie your whole look together.
