8 Awesome Makeup Tips for Redheads

  • 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.
  • 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 colours. Cool skin tones look best in cool colours.
  • Black liner typically looks best on women with bold, red hair like dark berries and cherries.
  • If you’re more of auburn, copper, or strawberry blonde, stick to brown eyeliner as black can be too harsh of a contrast.
  • Pink, taupe and peach eye shadows look gorgeous on you (plums look great on redheads with green eyes!).
  • If you’re a redhead with freckles make sure you let those freckles show. Don’t conceal them!
  • 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.
  • Mascara is a natural redhead’s best friend! Sometimes your lashes can seem to disappear, so adding a coat of dark brown mascara (not black) will make your lashes stand out without being too dark.
