Add to Favorites
  • 1. When filling in your brows, avoid pencils with a red tint to them. It can look unnatural and enhance any redness in the skin. Stick to a medium brown or taupe.
  • 2. The rule “Redheads can’t wear lipstick” is a myth. You absolutely can! Just be sure to pick a red that complements your skin tone. In general, warm skin tones look best in warm colors. Cool skin tones look best in cool colors.
  • 3. Black liner typically looks best on women with bold, red hair like dark berries and cherries.
  • 4. If you’re more of auburn, copper, or strawberry blonde, stick to brown eyeliner as black can be too harsh of a contrast.
  • 5. Pink, taupe and peach eye shadows look gorgeous on you (plums look great on redheads with green eyes!).
  • 6. If you’re a redhead with freckles make sure you let those freckles show. Don’t conceal them!
  • 7. If you’re a redhead with fair skin, never skimp on your SPF. Apply daily in this order: Skin serums, moisturizer with SPF and lastly makeup.
  • 8. Mascara is a natural redhead’s best friend! Sometimes your lashes can seem to disappear, so a adding a coat of dark brown mascara (not black) will have your lashes stand out without being too dark.
