Add a pop of color with your gorgeous red hair

Updated: September 12th, 2023

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:

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.
