One of our favorite parts about summer is the excuse to rock bright, bold ‘redhead friendly’ lipsticks. We don’t know if it’s due to the warm weather or the effect of an effortless look, but we tend to center our entire makeup look around our lip.
Many redheads think they can’t wear a bright lip (like a hot pink or a red) simply because their red hair is already the center of attention. Well, that’s a total myth. Redheads look amazing in bright hues –– if done right. Less is always more. Make sure to go subtle on the eyes, bold on the brows and sweep a little bronzer and highlighter where needed.
