Depending on your hair type, this guide will help you know which eyeshadows look best on you:

For “Ginger” Redheads:

For the lighter redheads, with “ginger” hair & porcelain skin, stick with lavenders and honey shades to best complement your skin and hair.

Our favorite eyeshadow products for lighter redheads are Bare Minerals Ready Eyeshadow 2.0 and Beauty Is Life Matte Eye Shadow in ‘Honey’ 12 W.

For “Auburn” Redheads:

Medium shades, try warm earth shades and also experiment with deep and bright colors. The deepness of your hair will combine well with the warmth of these shades.

Opt for these eyeshadows: MAC Eyeshadow in Amber Lights and Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Gunmetal.

For “Midnight”/Deep Redheads:

Dark shades should go bold, bold, bold! Use the color of 2013, emerald green, and other vibrant colors like deep plums and blues.

Try these fabulous eyeshadows: Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow in Cosmic and NARS Eyeshadow in Jolie Poupee.

Rock it like a Redhead!
