Are You a Redhead New to Makeup? Here Are 10 Products to Get You Started

Build Your Redhead Beauty Routine

If you’re redhead new to makeup, you might be overwhelmed by the sheer number of products there are. Makeup doesn’t have to be overwhelming, you just have to learn the basics first. Here are 10 basic (and ‘Redhead-Friendly’) products you can use to build a full look: 

1. Beauty blender

BEAKEY 5 Pcs Makeup Sponge Set: Applying makeup can get confusing fast. There are a lot of different brush types and it can be tough to know which ones to use for what. Try starting out with a beauty blender. It’s a sponge you can use to apply almost any type of cream product and get a nice finish. 

Shop Beauty Blender: $10

2. SPF tinted moisturizer

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30: When you’re just starting out, you probably won’t want a heavy full coverage foundation. Instead, opt for a tinted moisturizer with SPF. This will give you some light buildable coverage and sun protection. 

Shop Tinted Moisturizer: $48

3. Concealer

NARS Mini Radiant Creamy Concealer: For any trouble areas like blemishes, dark under eyes, or redness, use a cream concealer. Opt for a shade 1-2 shades lighter than your skin to help brighten the face.

Shop Concealer: $14

4. Cream Blush

NYX Cream Blush in Coralicious: Cream blush is easy to apply, you can use your beauty blender or even your fingers, and will give your face a nice flush. This gorgeous coral color is perfect for redheads. 

Shop Blush: $13

5. Bronzer

Physician’s Formula Murumuru Butter Bronzer: Add a little color to your face with a nice buttery bronzer. This pick is a redhead staple item and comes in a variety of shades so you can choose the right one for your skin tone.

Shop Bronzer: $13

6. Highlighter

L’Oreal True Match Lumi Glotion: This liquid highlighter will give you a nice buildable glow and can be applied with a beauty blender or your fingers. Bonus: you can also use it on your eyelids for a little extra shimmer. 

Shop Highlighter: $13

7. Eyebrows

Finally Have Brows Volumizing: Most redheads have very light blonde eyebrows, so we need all the help we can get. Instead of struggling with brow pencils and pomades, use an eyebrow gel. It will offer color and hold that stays all day. This brow gel is formulated for redheads by redheads for the perfect red color.
