The 91st Academy Awards was a night to remember, especially when it came to the gorgeous redhead celebrities who graced the red carpet. While we adored Amy Adams’ white gown and neutral lip, we couldn’t help but notice the redheads who rocked bold red lips at the Vanity Fair After Party. They proved redheads can rock reds of all shades –– and you can too.
Tip: If you’re nervous or wary about wearing color on your lips, start with a neutral lipstick and work your way up!
1. Deep Red:
Madelaine Petsch kept it classy but bold. When opting for a deep red, it’s important to know if you’re warm or cool toned. If you’re cool-toned (like most redheads), you’ll want to stick to blue-red lipsticks. If you have a more yellow undertone, this is typically those with olive skin, look for corals, red-oranges, or red-browns.
Here are some ‘redhead friendly’ deep red lipsticks:
Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Lip Color in ‘Divine Wine’, $5
MAC Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in ‘Sin’, $18
Lime Crime Velvetines Matte lipstick in ‘feelins’, $20
2. Brick Red:
Mireille Enos also kept it classy with a pop of red on her lips. You can’t go wrong with a true or brick toned lipstick, especially if you’re wearing a nude dress or sweater.
Here are some ‘redhead friendly’ brick red lipsticks:
NYX Professional Makeup Matte Lipstick in Crazed, $6
Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in ‘Shanghai Express’, $28
Bobbi Brown Lip Color Lipstick in ‘Burnt Red’, $29
