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. It’s time to switch things up and explore some earthy colors around the eyes.
If you only like wearing black mascara, try brown 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:
We’ve been obsessed with this mascara for years. It thickens lashes with clumping and won’t irritate your eyes. It comes in an array of shades including Black Brown (great if you’re a black mascara user but looking to try brown) and Deep Burgundy (such a unique shade).
This product makes your lashes look super long and curled – yes, even if they stick straight out. Opt for the shade ‘Beyond Brown’.
Looking to splurge on a mascara? You won’t regret getting this brown mascara from Dior. We love the curved brush, which was inspired by professional hair care curling tools to style every lash from bottom to top.
A great option if you’re looking for an inexpensive drugstore option. Opt for the shade in Brown.
Rock it like a Redhead!
