Being a redhead myself, I know that makeup tips for redheads are some of the hardest to find! So ladies, if you are a fellow strawberry blonde, (ahem let’s be honest, a ginger) and you’re looking for the right makeup for you, look no further! These makeup tips are sure to make your features and your beautiful red tresses stand out beautifully!

Brown Vs Black


One of my most important makeup tips for redheads is that generally, brown eyeliner works better than black. Now of course this depends on what colour red hair you have, your skin tone, whether your hair colour is natural or not, but personally I find that light brown eyeliner is always the best choice. It’s more flattering on the features and not too heavy so doesn’t distract from those flaming hot locks! Woah momma!

Looking for eyeshadow that works amazingly well for redheaded babes? Then you’ve come to the right place. Peaches and browns all the way ladies! These flattering tones always bring out the red and the peach in particular will look ideal with your freckles!

Don’t be scared of blusher

Have you found you’re shying away from blush just because you’re a redhead? Big mistake ladies! In fact, crimson blushes and deeper brick tones are fantastic! Just remember, all you need is just enough for a beautiful glow, we don’t want any clown cheeks – oh no!

Let your freckles shine through!


One of the best things about being a redhead is freckles – a sign of beauty don’t you know! So fellow redheads, don’t ever be ashamed of your beautiful freckles! Just dust some light powder or even some mineral foundation (which we’ll get onto in the next tip) over your face to help keep your freckles beautiful!

Well ladies, mineral foundation is by far one of the best foundations for redheads! Mineral foundation is awesome because it allows you to show off those awesome freckles!

Light mascara

I love a good coat or two of mascara but it can sometimes be a little too heavy for the majority of natural redheads. If you go light on the mascara, you’ll still get the length, but not have your lashes weighed down. Just one or two coats will be enough to make your eyes stand out and light brown mascara will look even more natural while helping to emphasise your beautiful features! WIN WIN!
