The 12 Best Redhead-Approved Colored Mascaras For a Bold, Fun Look

Add a pop of color with your gorgeous red hair

Posted on

Colored mascara is a huge trend right now, and lucky for us it looks amazing with red hair and should be in your redhead makeup kit. Most redheads have light blonde lashes, which means the pigment of colored mascara shows up bold and bright. Here are some of our favorite colored mascaras that work for redheads:


Maybe the most popular of the colored mascaras is blue. From navy to bright blue there are lots of options to choose from. Not only will this color make your eyes and red hair pop but it’s super fun for summer.

Another lovely color option for redheads is purple mascara. This also ranges in darker and lighter shades and will really complement redhead complexions.

Want something a little more subtle? Red mascara is almost a neutral for redheads but adds a gorgeous pop of color. Especially in darker shades of red, like burgundy.
