Denise Richards has been papped in some seriously unflattering photos lately, and while the main culprit is her makeup, one has to wonder- are her blonde days over? Denise loves to been tanned and whether natural or fake, she has become much too orange to pull off blonde. Let's take a closer look and see what is going wrong with Ms Richards.

Her makeup works fairly well even though the eyeliner is a bit heavy, but her hair and complexion are not working in harmony. Both her hair and skin look unnatural and very "matte" for lack of a better word. Denise would suit brunette hair much better here.

Do you think Denise needs to darken her hair up, or is she in need of a complete make-under?
