Make-up for redhaeds !



Your hair is the frame around your face and of course the colour of it will affect what colours of make-up do or don't match with your looks. In this blog I will focus on people with red or ginger coloured hair, because I have that as well. Red is a beautiful and powerful colour and with the right make-up you can realy make the picture complete. Here are some tips what colours to use and some practical tips. 







Skincare
Make-up starts with a healty skin. It is important to take care of your skin, before you aply your make-up. People with natural red hair often have a light and sensitive skin. If you dyed your hair red, it is possible that you have a normal skin (like me), but taking care of it is necesairy as well. Always use mild skinproducts and use a hydrating creme with a protection factor. Make sure you check out the bottle, before buying anything. Don't use products that are too rough for your skin. Make sure you hydrate your skin with a moisterizer every day. It will make your skin look young and fresh. 

Foundation
People with natural red hair tend to have light skin and often they also have freckles. They are considered one of the seven beauty marks, so please don't cover them under a thick coat of foundadion. Freckles also can get an unnatural colour if you cover them too much. Make sure too pick the right colour of foundation, one that matches your skintone. Go for a light foundation and if you're not sure, ask the sales woman if you can try it on your face. Don't try it on your hand, because your hands are not the same colour as your face ! I advise using a more transparant foundation, or powder foundation. This will give you a more natural look. Avoid a foundation with a pink undertone. I suggest going for a more peachy or coral coloured undertone. 

Eye Make-Up
Red haired people can pull off a lot of colours. Recommended colours are more natural tones, like brown, taupe, bronze, etc. Also eye-shadows with terracotta colours are beautiful with red hair, especially in combination with green eyes.  If you want to pop in a little bit more colour, go for greens or olive tones.  Red haired girls with blue eyes should go for blue, grey and silver colours.  Be careful with bright pink or some purple shades. These colours don't always go with your red hair. Lilac you can use, because it is not too bright. Brown or redbrown mascara tends to go better with red hair. It looks more natural. Black mascara can give you a harsh look. If you do decide to go for a black mascara, then adjust your eyeshadow and use darker colours. You can also make your brows a few shades darker, so it fits the look. 

Blush
Red haired girls often don't need much mascara, because of their beautiful freckles. Plus, red hair automatically gives you a warm look. If you do want to use blush, go for light colours, in a peach or coral tone. Don't cover your freckles, but contour under them. 

Lips
In most cases a light lipglos in pink, peach or corally colours are sufficient. Always make sure your make-up is balance. I mean, when you focus on the eyes, then keep your lips light, and the other way around. If you want to accent your lips, us lipstick in brown, orange-red or peachy tones. Combine this with a light and subtile eyeshadow for the perfect look.  If you choose to lay the accent on your eyes, go for a light gloss. 

Good luck ! :)
