Many redheads have trouble finding the right eyeshadow shade. And, sometimes you can’t use all colors in an eyeshadow palette. A great option is to choose single eyeshadows; it’s a great bang for your buck and you can create a collection (or find the one shade for day/night) that is perfect for you!

Here are the 16 best single eyeshadows for redheads:

Nude/Beige: 

A great daytime shade that requires little effort. Just sweep on your lids and go. Try L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Shadow in Endless Pearl for long-lasting, fade-proof color and RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Aura for a dewy, cream-based shadow and NARS Soft Essentials Single Eyeshadow in Beige for a super subtle shade.

Copper/Rust: 

The main photo features Madeline Brewer + Jessica Chastain — both are wearing copper/rust eyeshadow shades. These warm shades look stunning on a redhead. If you’re new to this color, try Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single in Golden Copper, NARS Single Eyeshadow in Guayaquil (Bright Metallic Rust) or Crown Brush Rustic C20 (featured in every July H2BAR Box).

A great tip is to pair this shade with a subtle nude lipstick.

Purple:

A matte-finish eyeshadow is a great everyday look that’s easy-to-blend and long-lasting. You can wear it day or night. MAC Matte Eyeshadow in Purple is our go-to. If you’re looking for a little sparkle, try Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Intergalactic.

Gold:

Try a gold shadow to really ‘up’ your evening outfit. If you’re a cool-toned redhead then you know gold is an extremely flattering color. That’s why we love BUXOM Eyeshadow Bar Single Eyeshadow in Gold Status.

Green: 

Talk about a ‘redhead friendly’ color! We love this green shadow from Tigi High Density Single Eyeshadow in Emerald Green to pair with our red hair.

Blue: 

Similar to green, blue looks gorgeous on a redhead. Choose a deep blue like Anastasia Beverly Hills Eyeshadow Single in Blue/Green and Crown Brush C27 Jewel Beetle (featured in every July H2BAR Box).

Pink: 

Yes, redheads can wear pink! If you’re looking for a subtle shade, try Laura Mercier Sateen Eyeshadow in Guava or Crown Brush C4 Blush (featured in every July H2BAR Box). Want a little shimmer? Gorgeous Cosmetics Colour Pro Eyeshadow Single in Pink Glimmer is it.
