Congratulations! You've finally decided to try blonde hair. You're ready to embrace a whole different lifestyle: All the sulfate-free hair products, purple shampoos, and masks are now calmly waiting to be used in your shower. But besides haircare, there's another department that needs a little tweaking, too: Makeup.
When you have lighter locks, your complexion may look washed out and your brows could clash with your current hair color. To guide you through your ~new~ life, here are some makeup guidelines:
Your brows should be lightened.
Black brows look off with golden locks. Have your stylist bleach them in a lighter hue or you can just coat the hair strands with a brown eyebrow mascara. The only time that black arches are appropriate is when your hair is dyed platinum.

But never leave your arches unfilled.
If your brow hairs are sparse, it's important to fill them in so you won't appear washed out. You can use a taupe-hued pencil so the pigment won't appear severe.

Define your eyes.
It's important to make your orbs pop when you've got lighter locks. On tamad days, you can just do away with curled lashes + mascara. But when you want to be snatched, try a smoky eye, feline flick, or colored eyeshadow!

Don't forget to add color to your face.
Again, you want to avoid looking washed out, so never leave the house without color on your cheeks and lips!
