Here are our ‘redhead friendly’ blush suggestions for you:

1. JESSICA CHASTAIN: For those with light red hair, a subtle peach is a great option.

SAVE: L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Blush, Precious Peach

SPLURGE: Jouer Cosmetics – Bouquet D’Amour Six Shade Blush Palette

2. EMMA STONE: If you’re a deep strawberry blonde, you’re able to go for the most popular coral blush shades.

SAVE: Revlon Powder Blush, Classy Coral

SPLURGE: Stila Convertible Color, Petunia

3. ROSE LESLIE: If you’re a true auburn redhead, the goal is to never add more red to the skin. That’s why we love the color ‘apricot’. It looks like a bronzer but brings out the cheekbones in a beautiful way.

SAVE: Gabriel Cosmetics Inc. – Blush Apricot

SPLURGE: NARS Blush in ‘Luster’
