Redhead makeup tips can be intimidating for even the most cosmetic savvy of us. Many wonder what foundation is the best, how to showcase freckles and if redheads can wear colored makeup, like bright eyeshadow and lipstick. To help us tackle all questions, we turned to Joanna Schlip, Celebrity Makeup Artist for Physicians Formula, for the top three makeup tips for redheads.

1. “Show off a radiant complexion (and let freckles show through) by using a tinted moisturizer or BB Cream.  It will provide coverage without being heavy or cakey.  Remember to opt for your skin tone, not your freckle tone!

2. “Redheads with super fair lashes can still wear black mascara. For me, it’s all about the amount rather than the color.  If using black, apply one sheer swipe.  If you’re looking to create more volume, opt for a dark brown.”

3. “Redheads can absolutely wear color, and they should!  Although earth tones work well too, redheads look great with a colorful eye or lip.  Try a lavender, turquoise or royal blue shadow or liner with a nude lip or a simple eye with a pop of red lipstick. Don’t be shy!”

Rock it like a Redhead!
