Redheads look best in green, copper or khaki eye shadow. Rose or coral lipstick goes well with red hair. Smoky eyes and red lipstick are ideal for making a striking style statement.
Experiment with olive, peat, rust, nutmeg, gold and cinnamon eye shadow to work out which colors flatter your coloring. Choose plum, turquoise or lilac eye shadow to create an urban, sophisticated look. A redhead with light eyelashes can use a luxurious application of brown or black mascara to add length and color to the lashes. Go for a natural look by applying just eyeliner to define the eyes and skip the eyeshadow altogether. For evening makeup, try smoky eyes and understated makeup for the rest of your face.
Apricot blush adds subtle color to a redhead's cheeks. Use coral, apricot or rose lip gloss for an understated look. Lipsticks with brown undertones look good on redheads, but a redhead can also look stunning by wearing red lipstick while keeping the eye makeup understated. Lipstick color should be based on skin tone rather than hair color. A redhead who wears silver jewelry well should choose red lipstick with blue undertones. A redhead who looks good in gold jewelry should pick lipstick with orange undertones.
