Why blondes need make up (UPDATED)


This is just a quick moan about how easy our brunette sisters have it when it comes to going make up free.

When you’re blonde and especially if you’re pale skinned, (and over a ‘certain’ age) you need colour on you face to stop you looking washed out.

Annoyingly, brunettes don’t look anywhere near as bad make up free. I think it might be the eyebrows giving structure to the face.

I don’t know about you, but going without make up, which we all have to do at times, (plus it’s good to give your skin a rest and let it breathe) makes me feel vulnerable and ‘not quite myself’.

Of course, there are also those days when you’re make up free and you’re just doing boring errands and inexplicably, look fresh-faced and gorgeous and no one sees you!

I’d love to hear how you feel on those make up free days or are you one of those women who won’t leave the house with your ‘face on?’
