6 ‘Redhead Friendly’ Approved Auburn and Brown Mascaras

Updated: September 12th, 2023

Mascara. A wonderful word. A beautiful product.

For many redheads out there, you’re thinking the same thing: My lashes couldn’t live without this beauty product.

We’re right there with you.

‘Redhead-Friendly’ approved mascara is everything. It’s the one thing we cannot leave the house without – even if it’s just a few swipes before running out the door. And, if you’ve ever skipped it to go bare, you’ve definitely heard from a friend or two, “Are you feeling okay today? You look kind of sick.” Replying instantly with, “I’m completely fine, I just don’t have mascara on today.”

Auburn and brown mascara are two forgotten shades. We’re guilty of this since black mascara has been our cult-favorite since we were teenagers. This is why we also created a black shade for Finally Have Lashes. It’s time to switch things up and explore some earthy colors around the eyes.

If you only like wearing black mascara, try Finally Have Lashes Perfectly Brown (with a tint of red) or Red-Y for Lashes Perfectly Auburn on your bottom lashes. This will make your eyes really pop.

If you don’t usually apply mascara on a daily basis, try a few strokes of Auburn or Brown on your top lashes, leaving the bottom ones bare.

Here are 6 of our favorite ‘redhead friendly’ auburn and brown mascaras:

1. Finally Have Lashes in Auburn and Brown (with a tint of red)
