Red Lipstick for Blondes

Blonde hair and red lipstick is an instantly iconic combination. Throughout history, blonde bombshells have worn red lipstick to create magnetising makeup looks that are captivating to watch on film and on the red carpet. The secret to choosing a red lipstick for blonde hair is to select a bright shade of red that comes alive when paired with the light colouration of blonde hair. True reds, blue reds, and orange reds can all look sensational on blondes - I always suggest reaching for a more vibrant tone to create red-hot contrast.

    K.I.S.S.I.N.G – SO RED

    I created my So Red K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick as the ultimate screen siren red. I took inspiration from the iconic blondes of old Hollywood to create a sumptuous, head-turning red that could make everyone, everywhere feel like a Hollywood star. This transformative, confidence-boosting shade gives the lips a plush, satin-finish shockwave of racy red that marries perfectly with beautiful, blonde hair styles. Pair So Red with my Kiss ‘N’ Tell Lip Cheat to create a fuller, wider-looking lip shape before gliding on your moisturising red lipstick look.

I created Patsy Red as a blue-toned red lipstick with a magical matte finish; it looks divine on my mother, and I know you’ll adore it as well, darlings!

Pink Lipstick for Blondes

Pink lipstick looks flattering on everyone, darlings, but this is especially true for blondes. If you don’t feel like reaching for a statement-making red, the perfect pink lipstick can be an understated alternative that gives your pout a beautiful kiss of colour. Nude lipsticks with brown or caramel tones can sometimes look washed out when paired with the lightness of blonde hair, so I suggest reaching for pink-toned nudes and true pinks when searching for your perfect lipstick for blonde hair.

  1. Model with blonde hair wearing Nude Kate Kissing lipstick


    When working backstage as a makeup artist in the 90s and 2000s, I would mix pink lipstick pigments with concealers to create custom nude lipstick shades that I just couldn’t find anywhere! With my fabulous friend Kate Moss as my muse, I created my Nude Kate K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick as a nuanced nude lipstick with a hint of pink to get a nude lipstick look with a natural-looking, ‘your lips’ effect. This supermodel-inspired shade is a gorgeous lipstick for blonde hair, unlocking the most flattering nude lipstick look for blonde beauties everywhere!

The soft, baby-pink tones create a pretty-in-pink effect while the nourishing K.I.S.S.I.N.G formula delivers satin shine that will enchant under dancefloor lights.

    Do you love pink, darlings? Velvet Underground is one of my most vibrant pink lipsticks that’s reserved for those that love the most vibrant shades of pink! This electrifying shade of my K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick is a punchy fuchsia pink that’s bold, bright, and turns heads day and night! The statement-making shade really pops against light blonde hair, especially those who are cream or platinum blondes. For a dimensional-looking pout, softly line and contour the lips with The Queen Lip Cheat, then apply a slick of Velvet Underground straight from the bullet for satin-smooth, dollhouse-pink lips.

Eyebrow Makeup for Blonde Hair

Many blondes struggle to get the perfect shade for filling in their eyebrows. Blonde shades can often appear too warm and almost orange, whereas brown shades can look too dark against blonde hair. Discover my supermodel-inspired brow secrets in shades that will be flattering and natural-looking on blonde hair.

Makeup for Light Blonde Eyebrows

My Blonde shade is expertly designed to be light enough to create the look of subtle brow hairs that appear natural on even the fairest blonde eyebrows. To create natural-looking blonde eyebrows, I recommend using the Blonde shade of my Brow Lift or Brow Cheat eyebrow pencils to fill in your brows, then applying Legendary Brows brow gel in Taupe to tint your natural hairs with a flattering tone that’s not too yellow or too red.

Dark Blonde Eyebrows

Darlings, if you’re not a natural blonde, your secret is safe with me! However, you will need to adapt your eyebrow routine to cater for your new look. Your eyebrows will be naturally darker than your new shade of blonde; instead of trying to match your hair colour, it’s important to match your brows to your roots. Rather than reaching for blonde shades, reach for eyebrow pencils in Soft Brown and Taupe to create a slightly darker brow look that more closely matches your natural hair colour. Reaching for softer brown tones will help your eyebrows to look more natural with blonde hair, whereas reaching for medium browns and black shades will create bolder contrast.

Super Black Mascara for Blondes

Having naturally blonde hair often comes with lighter-coloured eyelashes which can look less apparent in photos and can become bleached when exposed to sunlight. Applying a jet-black mascara like Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes! mascara in Super Black will coat your blonde eyelashes with lash-defining, eye-enhancing pigment that makes your eyes pop! Black mascara looks flattering with every hair colour, but it’s particularly transformative for blondes with less prominent eyelashes.

Natural-Looking Mascara for Blondes

I adore the effect of mascara – it’s instant confidence and can change your entire aura! While jet-black mascara looks sensational on everyone, some blondes prefer a more natural lash look that’s closer to their hair colour. To get this effect, I recommend reaching for a more buildable mascara formula such as Full Fat Lashes! mascara to give lashes an understated, glossy look, or a coloured mascara like a brown or burgundy that will deepen the look of lashes while looking more subdued than eye-popping black.

Tilbury Tip: My Dream Pop shade of Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes! mascara is a gorgeous berry-brown hue that’s inspired by the magic of Pillow Talk! It’s a softer option than Super Black, giving blonde eyelashes a magical berry-brown tint to define and enhance their appearance.
