We may receive commissions from links on this page, but we only recommend products we love and deem 'redhead friendly'. Full Disclosure.

If ‘dewy’ and ‘hydrated’ are words you want to describe your redhead skin complexion, then turn to a cream-based makeup product. Cream products are great for redheads because they’re usually formulated with highly moisturizing ingredients to help provide a natural look that is never dry or cakey — and great for sensitive redhead skin, aging skin and dehydrated skin. They are ‘summer friendly’ due to their sweat-resistant and moisturizing properties.

Here are five cream-based ‘redhead friendly’ makeup products we’re currently loving:

1. Eyeshadow:

treStique Color & Smudge Shadow Crayon, $24

This is a cream-based eyeshadow in the form of a crayon that delivers a smooth and simple application. The full-sized products come with a blending brush for optional use. Since this cream product is in a slightly different form than other products, you don’t have to worry about over-applying the product or wasting any excess. We love their Kona Coffee Shimmer or Aspen Pine shade. Use an eyeshadow primer and setting powder to ensure long wear time.

 

2. Foundation:

VT Cosmetics Collagen Pact for Oily Skin, $27

This foundation is made for oily skin and offers high coverage with an SPF 50. It’s made with black essence, black caviar, bora sea urchin collagen, and ginseng collagen to help plump your skin and reduce fine lines.

 

 

3. CC Cream:

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50, $39

Don’t feel like putting on a full face of makeup? Try this full-coverage, lightweight CC Cream from IT Cosmetics. It acts as an anti-aging product with ingredients included such as collagen and hyaluronic acid. Available in eight shades ranging from Fair to Rich Honey.

4. Highlighter:

BECCA Cosmetics Ignite Liquified Light Face and Body Highlighter, $38

You’ll love the consistency and feel of this BECCA Cosmetics highlighter. It’s water-resistant, moisturizing and ‘redhead friendly’. Try the shades; Acceptance’ or ‘Passion’.

5. Blush

Grande Cosmetics GrandePOP Plumping Liquid Blush, $25

Featured in the most recent Summer Deluxe H2BAR Box, this liquid blush is blendable, buildable and the perfect ‘redhead friendly’ shade. Using the applicator, apply a few dots on the apples of your cheeks.

Rock it like a Redhead!
