Summer is the time to embrace your natural redhead beauty, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up makeup altogether! So, what makeup should you be wearing in the summer? It is a very personal choice, but here are a few minimalist redhead makeup tips that will have you looking great all summer long: 

Skip heavy foundation

When it’s hot, we tend to sweat more if we are wearing heavy makeup. Combined with our skin’s natural oils, this makes our faces look shiny, sticky, and cakey. Skip the heavy foundation in favor of a light tinted moisturizer or a light coverage CC cream over your sunscreen.

Tame those redhead brows

Redheads usually have lighter brows, but their hairs are more coarse. Try Finally Have Brows tinted brow gel by How to be a Redhead to keep them locked into shape, tinted and tamed. 

Lift your lashes

Like our brows, redheads typically have light eyelashes. When you aren’t doing a full face of glam, heavy mascara can look out of place. Give your lashes a nice curl and opt for a brown tinted mascara to give you a little life and color. 

Don’t forget the lips 

Wearing light makeup usually doesn’t bode well with a bold lip. Skip the classic lipstick and go for a nude gloss or tinted lip balm instead. Don’t forget to pop on something with SPF under your lip color to keep your lips from burning. 

Rock it like a Redhead!
