WATCH: Redhead Makeup Tips for Blonde Eyelashes and Eyebrows

Natural redheads sometimes have very blonde, almost translucent, eyelashes and eyebrows. The rules for applying makeup on redheads are completely different than for blondes and brunettes. Here are the best redhead makeup tips for blonde eyelashes and eyebrows:

Blonde Eyelashes: 

1. Face makeup and eyeliner should already be applied.

2. Apply mascara from the underneath and brush upwards. If you feel like you can still see traces of your blonde eyelashes at the base, wiggle the application wand at the base of the lashes, then brush outwards from underneath. It will cover up any blonde eyelashes and make your lashes look longer and thicker.

3. Brush mascara on next eye.

Blonde Eyebrows: 

1. Brush eyebrows upward using an eyebrow brush comb.

2. Using an eyebrow powder, choose a color a shade lighter than your red hair.

3. Dip your brush into the powder, tapping off the access.

4. Starting at the arch, fill in your brow from that point back. Whatever is left from the brush, fill in the front of the brow.

5. Gently blend in with eyebrow brush.

6. Repeat on second eye.

7. Using a clear eyebrow gel, brush the eyebrows upward to lock in the eyebrow shape and color.

Rock it like a Redhead!

    40+ natural redhead, as you age, you want to put on mascara first, since it tends to flake off right into your under eye wrinkles. Use a q-tip to gently remove the smudges.

    Apply moisturizer, BB cream, foundation as normal (all with good SPF sunscreen of course), then add final coat of mascara and apply under eye concealer. It will keep you from having the mascara flake or smudge into wrinkles, making them looks worse.

    This was super helpful, but if you are like me and can only afford products you can find at Walmart I recommend Revlon’s Brow Fantasy Dark Blonde. It is a pencil that comes with brow gel to help it stay all day ad is super easy to use.
