Here Is How Redheads Can Wear Metallic Makeup This Holiday Season

Add a Pop of Glam to Your Look

Metallics are a must for the holiday season, and incorporating them into your makeup is a great way to add a pop of color and glam. Metallic eyeshadow and liner can complement red hair during the holiday season by adding a festive and glamorous touch. The warm undertones in red hair often harmonize with the rich, reflective tones of metallic shades, creating a vibrant and stylish look that suits the celebratory atmosphere of the holidays.

Additionally, metallic eyeshadows like gold, bronze, or copper can enhance the natural warmth of red hair, creating a flattering contrast. These shades also have a luminous quality that catches light, giving the eyes a bright and alluring sparkle—perfect for holiday gatherings and parties. The reflective nature of metallic makeup can add depth and dimension to the eyes, making them stand out in a festive and eye-catching way.

We are loving metallic eyeshadows and eyeliners for winter. Here are some of our favorite metallic eye makeup products all in ‘Redhead-Friendly’ colors!
