Having redhead-approved makeup products that pull double duty in your routine can be a money saver, a space saver, and a time saver. Multi-use products are perfect for when you’re traveling and don’t want to bring your full kit, or when you’re doing your makeup on the go. Multi-use products can also be a lifesaver for when you run out of your favorite items, and knowing you can save time and money with a ‘Redhead Friendly’ stamp of approval is always a win-win.
Check out these genius ways to get the most out of your redhead makeup routine:
1. Bronzer: For Cheeks + Eyeshadow
Using bronzer as eyeshadow allows you to use fewer products, and it helps your look be cohesive. Swipe a little bronzer on the lid as a base for your eye look, or wear it alone for a more natural look. Plus, this works with both cream and powder bronzers!
‘Redhead Friendly’ Recommendation: Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer | Becca Cosmetics Sunlit Bronzer
2. Dual Power: Lip & Cheek Tint
Bring some color to your face with a dual lip and cheek tint. The blush colors that blend naturally on your cheeks will also look great on your lips for a simple lip look.

3. Highlighter: Wherever the sun hits the skin & inner eye eyeshadow
The pearlescent color you love to pop on the center of the lid and the inner eye can be achieved with highlighter! Use either a cream or powder highlighter and get a seriously gorgeous glowy look. Then, apply the highlighter where the sun hits your face: cheekbones, base of nose and top of eyebrows.

3. Clear Mascara: For Brows + Mascara
Tame your redhead eyebrows while adding some length to your lashes. Clear gel is perfect for a no-makeup makeup look and it’s a beauty bag staple for taming those brows.
