Cabernet, Merlot and Bordeaux (to name a few) aren’t just the wine choices, they’re also great ‘redhead friendly’ shades for your lips. It’s hard enough finding lipsticks for redheads that are complementary –– but wine colors are always a win. The shades are usually deep and depending on your shade of red, they can really make your red hair pop.

We’ve rounded up the best wine-colored lipsticks to rock with your gorgeous red hair:

This color is a great match for auburn redheads with brown tones and is a wonderful pick for the everyday classic look. Opt for a color like Milani Cabernet Blend.MLSN-40-Caberet Blend Cream-V2_LRG
