Skin tone and blush
Applying makeup for owners of blond hair and brown eyes requires some preparation. First you need to determine the skin tone and color type.
You can determine the skin tone by contrast, just stand in front of the mirror and bring a clean white A4 sheet to your face. Against the background of the whiteness of the paper, the natural shade will stand out more.
There are four color types for the appearance of girls and it is quite simple to determine it:
- Winter: skin tone – white porcelain or, in contrast, swarthy.
- Spring: face pale pink or peach hue;
- Summer: milky white complexion with an olive, bluish tint;
- Autumn: milky, almost transparent, with a golden tint skin.
Having determined the color type of appearance and skin tone, you can easily choose the right foundation or primer, powder and blush. The foundation should completely match the skin tone. If the base is lighter than the color of the skin, the face will be lost against the background of blond hair, and the dark shade will look unnatural.
Do not forget that the primer, tonal foundation or BB cream should be applied not only to the face, but also to blend on the neck area to create a natural effect.
The cream around the eyes, which is applied under makeup, should, on the contrary, be one or two shades lighter than the skin tone. This simple technique will help hide minor defects near the eyes and allow you to conveniently and beautifully apply shadows.
When starting to apply blush, you need to take into account that for light skin it is better to choose discreet, delicate tones, and for dark skin, on the contrary, more saturated ones, even with an amber tint, are suitable. The choice of blush depends not only on skin color, but also on the shade of the eyes:
- For light brown eyes, pink and purple nuances are better, it is better to avoid peach and apricot;
- Dark brown eyes are suitable for colorful berry shades, beige and brown blush are prohibited.
You need to apply blush in the area of the cheekbones and chin. If you focus on hair color, then shades of rose, coral and beige nuances are ideally combined with light curls.
Suitable eyeshadow palette
Girls with brown eyes are very lucky – they are suitable for many color palettes of shadows, however, there are a number of specific recommendations related to the shade of the eyes. Basic tones suitable for brown-eyed girls:
In this case, the shadows can be matte or mother-of-pearl, depending on the occasion. The make-up can be supplemented with black, brown, silver and golden arrows. For daytime makeup, it is better to avoid using bright eyeliner.
Too light tones of shadows for brown-eyed blondes are contraindicated even with daytime makeup.
Makeup artists consider the most relevant and trendy shades of shadows for girls with brown eyes and blond hair:
- Dark pink;
Blue shades can also be used, they visually soften the look. However, it is better to give preference to a certain tone of shadows only after careful selection of blush and lipstick, in order to avoid overloading the make-up.
With minimalist makeup for blond hair and brown eyes, it is recommended to use deep shades of lipstick: pearlescent or matte. Saturated shades will help to highlight the look and create a spectacular image:
- Dusty rose.
The ideal lipstick option for blond brown-eyed girls is with a matte finish.
Blondes with brown eyes should avoid using lip gloss or tint. It is better to give preference to nude lipsticks with a colorful undertone. Glitter and tint will moisturize the lips and give them shine, but against the background of the rest of the make-up, the smile will simply be lost.
If the use of a rich lipstick is not possible, it is better to limit yourself to a lip balm with a slight color nuance or a shiny texture.
