Enhance Your Gorgeous Features!

Purple is a stunning color on redheads, especially when incorporated into our makeup. Purple makeup might seem daunting since it’s a pretty vibrant color, but when the right shades are used it can enhance the natural features of a redhead. Purple makeup can beautifully accentuate the unique features of redheads by creating a striking contrast. Shades like plum or lavender can enhance green or blue eyes, while softer lilac tones can add a touch of elegance to the overall look. Here are some of our favorite ways to incorporate purple products into our everyday routines

1. Purple Mascara

Redheads can make their eyes pop with purple mascara, as the contrasting color highlights the natural tones in their hair and enhances the eye color. It adds a playful and unexpected element to the makeup, making their gaze captivating. Dark, plum purple mascara is a great way to enhance your eyes. For redheads with green or blue eyes, it can make the color pop, for redheads with brown eyes, it’s a great way to add more intrigue to the eyes in a subtle way.

2. Purple Blush

Redheads can benefit from wearing purple blush because it provides a subtle and complementary contrast to their natural hair color. It adds a warmth to the complexion, creating a harmonious balance that enhances their overall appearance with a touch of sophistication. Specifically, purple blush can gorgeous on fair skin, and works on any undertone. For those with a more cool undertone, opt for cool-toned purples to help draw the pink out in the face. For those with warmer undertones, opt for more reddish plum blush. Neutral undertones can go either way.

If you like a bold lip, purple is an awesome choice. You can go for a more “vampy” look with a dark purple, or use a wash of purple to add some dimension to the lips.

Shades like berry, plum, or lavender can complement red hair tones, creating a unique and stylish appearance.

The contrasting hue can make their eyes pop, providing a subtle yet captivating look that’s perfect for the holiday season or any occasion.
