I’m pleased to say after looking for years, we have quite a few great ‘Redhead Friendly’ options!


1. NARS ‘Orgasm’ Blush, $30

This blush is always raved about by beauty insiders and I must agree with them. NARS always does such an amazing job, and the color is perfect for fair skin and red hair.

2. Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Blush in ‘Sparkling Bellini’, $30

This trio of blushes from Too Faced is a favorite if you want a little glow with your blush. It’s perfect for a redhead’s skin complexion and gives a lovely luminous glow.

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in ‘Blushing Bride’ or ‘Dollface’, $29

When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a Tarte blush. These two shades are fantastic and have 12-hour staying power, so no need to reapply during the day. Plus, did you know Tarte’s founder, Maureen Kelly, is a gorgeous redhead?!


This stuff has some SERIOUS staying power. It’s the perfect peachy glow that won’t budge during your summer activities. Water, sweat, wind, sun- none of that can move this powder blush. It is highly pigmented, so it doesn’t take much.


1. Tarte Amazonian Clay Matte Waterproof Bronzer in ‘Park Avenue Princess’‘, $40

It is my go-to daily bronzer in the summer. It gives lovely color without being too orange, dark or ruddy on my skin. I look naturally sun-kissed and that makes every day better. It’s also waterproof. BONUS! 

2. Physicians Formula ‘Light Bronze Pearl‘, $8

For the ultimate glow, I love this product. Not only is the price point affordable, but the glow is enviable.

3. The Body Shop ‘Light Matte’ Honey Bronzer, $20

The glow is beautiful with redheaded skin. It goes on flawlessly, provides perfect buildable coverage and looks fantastic.

Do you have any summer staples you rely on? Rock it like a Redhead!
