A pretty pout adds a lovely glow to your complexion and compliments any outfit you have on.
But an even better lipstick will enhance your skin tone, hair and eye colour.
So with our vibrant tresses, what are the best lip shades that flatter redheads best?
Well, I’m here to help, you lucky ginger lovelies.
Generally speaking, those with auburn hair are considered “warm” in the complexion spectrum, meaning that our skin tone has rosy or golden undertones. Always remember to keep that in mind when choosing a lip color, as “cooler”, blue-based pigments will likely wash us out and who wants to look drab?
Here are some great lipstick hues to make our ginger complexions really pop!
In the Pink:
Pinks match very well with ginger hair of all shades and add a soft, pretty flush to our complexions. Look for warm pinks or ones with a golden shimmer, avoid chalky pinks with white undertones at all costs!
Warm pink or bronze hues likes peach look fantastic on redheads! By playing with more vibrant reddish tones, you’ll notice that coral will add a strong flash of colour whilst remaining within that flattering peach family.
In the Nuddy:
Natural-looking shades really intensify our fiery locks. Try out nudes with a warm, bronzy undertone for the best look. Pair this with dark smokey eyes, and you’ll definitely turn heads!
La vie en rose:
Rosy shades are a lovely mix of pink and red which is the perfect compliment to our complexions. Add some dark pink blush for a cute, romantic look.
We all know how fabby redheads look in purple clothing, so why stop there? Be daring and try a lip shade with purple undertones for a big impact. I love the current trend of fuchsia lipsticks. Fuchsia has the best of both worlds for gingers by combining pink and purple together.
Finally, it’s time to falsify the old adage about redheads not being able to wear red: the key is to find the right red.
The best method is to choose a red lipstick colour that most resembles the gingerish tone of your hair; those with orange-red locks should look for copper reds or reds with a pinkish undertone.
Gingers with gold or copper undertones will look terrific with a red lipstick that has a warm gold undertone.
Just remember: all redheads can and should rock fire red lips, it’s a flattering colour for us, no matter what people may think!
So, whether you go for a pretty pink pout or walk on the wild side with luscious red lips, be confident in choosing the perfect colour that compliments your gorgeous ginger hair!
