Mascara and redheads are forever BFF’s. It’s the one product many of us redheads will not leave the house without. It adds color to our fair lashes to make our red hair and eyes pop.

You don’t need to dish out a ton of money on this one single makeup product. It is known, especially by makeup artists, that drugstore formulas rival their high-end competitors. Meaning, you don’t need to splurge on a fancy $50 tube of mascara to get the job done.

With so many to choose from, it can be difficult to find the right ‘redhead friendly’ drugstore mascara. Below are our top five favorites.

Remember: Curl, prime (wait 20 seconds) and then apply mascara for long lashes!
