OK - this might seem like a way totally weird post, but I am seriously seeking advice here. Are there any other mixed-race / light-black girls out there who can give me any hair / make-up / fashion tips that can make a really pale girl look darker? I'm talking like very light brown skin with natural blonde hair here and with European features - like I've never tried dying my hair black - would that help or just make me look even paler? - would some shade of brown work? I'm a total loser at working out colors, like what goes with what - should I be wearing dark colors or light?, reds, blues, yellows? What about styles of jewelry? I know I'm not going to be able to end up 'looking' actually black, but what I'm aiming for is at least the thought to enter people's heads that I might not just be some white girl with a suntan - BUT... I still want to look like me at the end of all this - if that makes sense.
