When you’ve got red hair you’re blessed with light skin, freckles and hazel, blue or green eyes. Red hair is hot (look at Christina Hendricks, Florence Welch & Julianne Moore) and we have the tips to help you make the most of your red locks & fair skin.
First things First: Select a good foundation that suits your skin. Chances are you will need a foundation that has gold, peachy or yellow tones. These undertones help to even out your skin tone, but make sure the foundation is sheer so it doesn’t hide your beautiful freckles! Freckles are a beautiful feature, they are unique and give a youthful appearance.
Because most red heads have light skin, you have to use sunscreen every day. Sunscreen are found in many skin lotions. Look for a moisturizing lotion that suits your type of skin a broad spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 15 such as Olay Complete All Day UV Moisturizer, SPF 15. There are also foundations or powders that contain sunscreen, try Bobbi Brown Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 in Porcelain
When choosing a blush, pick either an apricot or peach color (such as Nars Blush in Orgasm). These colors works well with redheads with fair skin tone. Peach or apricot hues will truly warm up your appearance.
Most redheads have light lashes, so the ideal mascara color has to be a rich brown mascara. This particular color will really enhance your eyes and the rest of your face. Your eyes will look softer and not as harsh as when using a bold black mascara.
Eyeshadow: There are many colors to choose from that will work well with your light skin and hair. Try plum, bronze, gold, green and pink tones. These colors will look perfect on your skin and will really make your eyes stand out without going over the top.
Neutral lipsticks work really well with red hair, so choose a shade similar to your blush or opt for pinks, golds and corals. If you would like to wear a bolder try out a bright orangey red lipstick.
Regardless of what hue of red your hair is, we recommended choosing a makeup color scheme that highlights your skin tone. The tips listed here will ensure you get the best from your beautiful red hair.
