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

Redheads are always told to stick to complementary lip colors like light pink, nude and glosses. For what reason, we’re not sure. Celebrities everywhere are rockin’ bright shades to make a statement, and although red hair is a big statement in itself, it is fun to experiment with bold shades. With summer right around the corner, and many parties and gatherings ahead, it’s fun to show even more expression with a bright lip.

Our co-founders, Adrienne & Stephanie, experimented with their favorite shades of purple & blue. Stephanie went light on her eye makeup when wearing blue, while Adrienne went heavy and showcased a purple lip. They both wanted to express their personalities, and wore it with confidence.

Check out the looks below, the shades used.. then comment below, would you rock bright shades?
