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

Finding ‘redhead friendly’ approved foundations can be somewhat challenging. But here’s the thing, it shouldn’t be. It seems many makeup companies come out with what they think is the lightest shade, when in fact it’s still too dark for some redheads.

We all want to find that foundation we love, trust and works with our complexion. Many drugstore foundations work great and are inexpensive but it can be difficult to find the right shade. That’s where Sephora comes in. It’s a haven for makeup and skin gurus. The store lets you try the foundation before you buy and many employees will go through various brands to make sure you purchase the right one. The best part: you’ll leave with a satisfied, confident purchase.

 

However, it can be overwhelming to walk into the store, so we’ve compiled the 5 best NEW ‘redhead friendly’ foundations available at Sephora right now.
