I’m pleased to say after looking for years, we have quite a few great ‘Redhead Friendly’ options!


1. NARS ‘Sex Appeal’ Blush, $30: This blush is always raved about by beauty insiders and I must agree with them. NARS always does such an amazing job, and the color is perfect for fair skin and red hair.

2. Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in ‘Something About Berry’, $30: This trio of blushes from Too Faced is a favorite if you want a little glow with your flush.  It’s perfect for a redhead’s skin and gives a lovely luminous glow.

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, $39: When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with the Tarte blushes. This blush in this shade is fantastic and has 12-hour staying power, so no need to reapply during the day. Plus, did you know Tarte’s founder, Maureen Kelly, is a gorgeous redhead?


4. Cargo Water Resistant Blush, $26: This stuff has some SERIOUS staying power. It’s the perfect peachy glow that won’t budge during your summer activities. Water, sweat, wind, sun- none of that can move this powder blush. It is highly pigmented, so it doesn’t take much.


1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Bronzer in ‘Park Avenue Princess‘, $40: It is my go-to daily bronzer in the summer. It gives lovely color without being too orange, dark or ruddy on my skin. I look naturally sun-kissed and that makes every day better. It’s also waterproof. BONUS! 

2. Physicians Formula ‘Light Bronze Pearl‘, $8: For the ultimate glow I love this product. Not only is the price point affordable, but the glow is enviable.

3. The Body Shop ‘Light Matte’ Honey Bronzer, $20: The glow is beautiful with redheaded skin. It goes on flawlessly, provides perfect buildable coverage and looks fantastic.
