We’re nearing the end of August, which means it’s almost time to say goodbye and farewell to sweet, sweet summer. The August 2019 H2BAR Box gave redheads everything they needed to end this summer season with a RED-tastic bang!
Sometimes it is difficult for us redheads to find the right shades of makeup to complement our red hair and skin tones. This Coastal Scents palette came with the perfect hues to transition into fall –– aka Redhead Season! Go-with-anything nudes, bright bold colors and subtle hints of sparkle made this the best everyday palette for day to night.

Fall is coming & a smokey eye 👁 is always on-trend. But, black and dark gray shadows can sometimes look too harsh on a redhead. And sometimes eyeshadow colors are the wrong shade or too shimmery. That’s why it’s important for redheads to discover ‘Redhead Friendly’ products 🎨 and specific palettes to complement their skin tone. Two products used in this tutorial + received by all August @h2barbox subscribers: 1. @coastalscents ‘Revealed’ Smokey Eyeshadow palette, $20 value 2. @100percentpure ‘Dark Cacao’ Liner Subscribe: h2barbox.com
Makeup professionals have always said you can take years off your age by using dark brown liner instead of black. And brown is very complementary to red hair! This easy to apply liner goes on without tugging the delicate eye area and stays true all day. Easy to remove with just simple face cleanser too.
This duo instantly became my new travel buddy. Packed with kale extracts that contain Vitamin C & Omega-3s, this Petal Fresh Shampoo and Conditioner is also infused with fatty acids and soothing keratin; which helps keeps your red hair super strong and shiny. Plus the deliciously fresh scent is loved by the senses!
Except for making sure our nails look fabulous with a summer-friendly color, nailbeds and cuticles are often forgotten. Keep them conditioned with some enriching oils that are in this great nail-bed treatment. The tea tree oil, grapeseed oil and sweet almond oil are combined to give your hands some extra TLC when they can get over-exposed to the elements.
5. Grow Gorgeous Mask, $12
There are times when our red hair needs a little TLC and then there are times it needs some serious help. This Grow Gorgeous hair mask is formulated with hyaluronic acid and coconut oil which work together to protect, replenish and rehydrate the most damaged strands.
Pro-Tip: It goes on super thick so make sure you deposit small amounts with your hands and use your fingers to coat your locks evenly.
It is no secret in the beauty industry that Argan Oil can be a saving grace when it comes to severely damaged red locks. This little shot of maintenance is more than enough to help keep the frizzies at bay and repair split ends and fly-aways. Use very little, rub it into your hands and just coat the ends of your red hair to keep them healthy and shiny.
You can also use it on your skin. Combine with your moisturizer or use separately.
Some extra moisturizers can leave your hair feeling heavy and blah. This rich yet non-sticky hair moisturizer gives you some extra hydration to hair that is dry and frizzy without leaving your hair—or scalp—feeling greasy. Use it just on the ends of your tresses for an extra touch of love and repair.
The benefits of coconut oil are endless. Use these little gems for a touch of all-over moisture from head to toe. Add a few drops to your daily facial moisturizer for a boost of facial hydration; or cover your feet with the oil, wrap them in saran wrap then put them in a pair of socks to soften up rough patches and calluses. You can even add them to recipes for lip balms, body scrubs and face masks for some extra pampering!
With the summer sun and hot temperatures, clogged pores and a nasty pimple now and then will happen. Fight off those “once in a whiles” with these target patches. Instead of changing your whole skincare routine, just put these pimple patches right where you need the extra help.
Enhance the beauty the summer season has brought your way while repairing some of the damage those temperatures and rays may have done. Rock it like a Redhead!
