Mineral Makeup for Redheads


Redheads usually have fair skin and can have light or dark eye colour. Your hair shade can also influence your makeup choices. We recommend the following natural and mineral makeup products as a guideline:


Powder Minerals – Evens out skin tone; liquid foundation or powder minerals depending on skin type

BB Cream or Tinted Moisturiser for a natural, summer look

Blusher – Peach and warm tones work well; as do soft browns on warmer skin tones

Brow pencil or powder – Go for a warm brown or strawberry blonde shade depending if you have dark or light hair

Highlighter – Gold or peach

MascaraBrown generally looks best with fair skin but black can look flattering with light eyes

Eyeliner – As with masacara

EyeshadowNeutral peach tones and golds are great on cooler skin tones; as is soft green eyeliner. Mauves, soft browns, purple and wine tones look fabulous on darker or warmer toned red heads.  For further advice, see our eye colour recommendations

Lipstick or Lip Gloss – Warm earthy tones including soft browns, peaches, burnished orange and warm reds suit all.  While deep plums and pomegranate look stunning on darker and warmer skin tones. Nude is great for all skin tones.
