Deutsche Version

The light brunette owns a very light, rosy complexion that builds a strong contrast to the rich reflexes of her light or middle brown hair shades. Her eyes, mostly blue, green, or brown, harmoniously enhance the soft natural light of her skin, without reaching the dramatic intensity of the snow white type. Other than the dark brunette, the light brunette’s appeal is rather cool and creamy, than warm and amber-like, which easily reminds of the beauty of ladies like Miranda Kerr, Anna Friel, Marion Cotillard, Laetitia Casta, Dakota Johnson and the Duchess of Cambridge.
