Red Hair

Use Green Eye Products
When selecting the right shades of eye shadows and eyeliners for redheads, I find most earth tones look good – green is an exceptionally good color for them. The shades in the Clinique portfolio that I recommend are: Clinique Color Surge Eye Shadow in Cider, Gold Rush, Rum Spice, Lucky Penny, Color Surge Eye Shadow Duo in Copper Canyon, and Coffee Shop. For eyeliners, try Clinique Quickliner for Eyes in Moss or True Khaki, or if she prefers a creamier application, Cream Shaper for Eyes in Egyptian or Brown Sugar.To create the perfect lash look, if she is very fair and has blonde lashes I recommend a brown mascara (not black or black/brown) so her makeup doesn’t look too harsh. When filling in the brows, be careful not to go too dark. You want to use a soft wheat or auburn colored liner.” – Robyn TamuraEye makeup gives you more variety in the color wheel because you can use browns, taupes, violets, moss greens, light pinks, hazels, golds and bronzes. Brown or red-brown mascara will compliment your eyes and eyeliners in brown; beige and hazel (not green) will also look great. Stay away from black mascara or liner, which can look too harsh. A dark blond brow pencil or shadow will be perfect for brows too.” – Christina Kazadzis
Using a sheer-based foundation in beige colors is required. Stay away from pink toned foundations, which can make you look ruddy or too pink. A light colored bronzer can also be used in lieu of foundation if your skin doesn’t require coverage but you just want to add a little color all over.  A green-based concealer (or green color corrector stick) is perfect for blemishes and under-eye darkness, so be sure to blend over it with some foundation to achieve the perfect coverage.”
Coral & Peach Blush
Blush colors should be in the coral and peach family of colors if you are fair, while the darker redheads can also use a raisin colored blush as well.  You’d want to go lighter in shade for fairer skin and darker for medium skin tones.” – Christina Kazadzis

Coral, Peach, & Pink Toned Lipsticks

All shades of redheads can use lipstick and lip liners that are coral, peach and pink tones, and even a raisin colored lipstick that is sheer and not matte will look beautiful. For those who love the look of red lipstick, find reds that are orange-based rather than blue-based and find a color that suits your own shade of red. Tinted lip-glosses in those shades will look wonderful too.”- Christina Kazadzis
Dark Red Lipsticks

I would avoid a bright fuchsia or bright pink on a redhead.  Dark red usually looks good, but it should be tried on for the right undertone. If her skin has a pinky undertone, a lipstick with a blue-red undertone might be best, while someone with a yellow undertone might want to try red-orange or red-brown shades.” – Robyn Tamura

Now all you redheads out there are armed with advice and color choices you need to bring out your inner glow.  Makeup for redheads doesn’t have to be a mystery anymore.

Be sure to check department store websites to find out when national makeup artists will be coming to town, and why not sign yourself up a for a little makeover?
