World Redhead Day: what makeup when you're a redhead?

Long criticized and put aside, red is today a very trendy color and coveted by many women. On the occasion of World Redhead Day, this January 12, we give you some tips for choosing the right makeup when you are a redhead !

Auburn, flamboyant red, golden copper, dark red… There are a multitude of tones and shades for redheads. Whether your beautiful hair color comes from coloring or is completely natural, it is important to know how to match your makeup with your hair for an absolutely divine and irresistible look!

How to make up your complexion when you are a redhead?

Usually, natural redheads have fair, even porcelain, skin. We therefore favor foundations and BB or CC Creams that are lightly tinted and which match the color of your skin. Indeed, redheads do not tan or very little, so it is better to avoid too dark foundations which would be unnatural and create an unattractive demarcation.

If you have freckles , opt for a foundation or cream with little coverage, which will not mask the natural appearance of your skin. If your beautiful red hair is due to coloring, you can create fake freckles on your nose and cheekbones for a more realistic and fashionable effect! With henna, eyebrow pencil or using the brush of your mascara, many techniques exist to create real fake freckles on your pretty face! Of course, this will require a little patience and dexterity, but there is no doubt that the end result will delight you.

How to make up your lips when you are a redhead?

What lipstick color is best for redheads? Well, truth be told, you are spoiled for choice! All colors are allowed, but with a certain parsimony obviously.

Since redheads have a very fair complexion, their lips are often quite pale too. It is therefore appropriate to enhance them with a pretty color, matching your outfit and the rest of your makeup.

In everyday life, coral, beige or light pink tones will be perfect for bringing a discreet touch of color to your face. They will brighten your complexion, bring a little freshness to your face and make your eyes stand out .

For a more glamorous look, dare to contrast with a bright red or burgundy lipstick. This will give you a more assertive appearance and a little femme fatale side. Be careful, however, not to overdo your eyes if you highlight your mouth.

How to make up your eyes when you are a redhead?

Nowadays, you can't think about makeup without thinking about eye makeup . Using us to express our emotions, our eyes are very important and can easily be enhanced by suitable makeup. This is especially true during a global pandemic, when the rest of our face is hidden behind a mask.

Your eye makeup will depend, first of all, on their color.

If you are a redhead with light, green or blue eyes , warm colors will be particularly suitable. Copper, orange, brown, gold or bronze will bring out your eyes while recalling your pretty hair color.

If you are more of a redhead with brown eyes , you can dress your eyes in a cold color that will highlight the color of your iris. Green, khaki or olive, is to be favored because green tones go particularly well with red hair .

Obviously, remember to enlarge and intensify your eyes by applying volume-effect mascara to your eyelashes. Since redheads' eyelashes are generally light, brown mascara will be more suitable than the usual black mascara.

Finally, we draw our eyebrows and make sure to maintain them well. Essential in a successful makeup routine, they give expression to your face and enhance the look. It is therefore important to maintain them and apply makeup to bring out your eyes and add the final touch to your look!

The trend being for thick and structured eyebrows , do not hesitate to use eyebrow makeup to intensify yours. Indeed, red eyebrows can easily, due to their color, be light and less visible or appear sparse. With the right products and accessories, such as mascara or a slightly darker eyebrow pencil, it will be very easy to fill in your eyebrows and make them stand out.

Permanent eyebrow makeup can also be a good alternative to accentuate and intensify your eyebrows with a completely natural finish, which will enhance your pretty face and enhance your eyes.
