A dramatic hair colour change can make a big difference, but the transformation doesn’t end when you leave the hairdresser’s chair. In fact, that’s just the start.
You see, what everyone forgets is that switching up your hair colour isn’t just a change to the mop on your head. It changes EVERYTHING. Your all-black uniform just looks gothic rather than chic, while the lipstick you’ve worn every day for the past five years suddenly doesn’t look right anymore.
It’s an unspoken rule Kim Kardashian knows too well right now. A month after returning to her peroxide blonde (Khaleesi-inspired?) hair, the reality TV star’s makeup artist Ariel has written on her website about the makeup changes Kardashian has had to make after lightening her dark hair.
The first stop? Her foundation. Usually favouring a warm tone for her base, Ariel says that with blonde hair it’s just been making Kim look orange. To avoid, she has been wearing La Mer Soft Fluid Long Wear Foundation in Tan #42, which has a more neutral base. Oh, and it will set you back a very casual $200. Erm, bargain?
It’s the same with blush, with Kim switching warm, peachy tones blushes for more pink-tones.
The lighter hair has also meant a complete swap in brow products to match the new colour. However, in her makeup revamp, the KUWTK star reckons she’s found the perfect nude lip colour for new blondes – MAC’s Lip Liner in Cork, $30. Ariel describes it as “the perfect mixture of pink and peach”.
