Top 10 beauty gifts for redheads

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And my fellow gingers, it’s time to put our best faces forward this holiday season.

So, if you’re on the hunt for some new make-up to try, or you’re looking for a few great gifts to give someone else, look no further.

I’m providing my personal Top 10 Beauty Gifts For Gingers, which can be found on websites as well as high street stores.

You. Are. Welcome.

1. Redhead Revolution make-up for the 2%

Finally, make-up for the 2%! Redhead Revolution recognises the need for ginger-friendly skincare and make-up products. From Gingerlash Mascara to Au Naturel Sunscreen, your redhead beauty needs are catered for.

Get it from the Ginger Parrot Store or redheadrevolution.us

2. Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation

If there’s one thing I absolutely hate about foundation, it’s that sometimes, no matter how light of a shade I buy, it still looks too dark and too cakey.

Make-up artist Charlotte Tilbury knows redheads. She’s ginger herself, after all! This foundation comes in 20 shades, with shades 0-3 really suiting those paler redheads out there, plus it’s nice and light while getting the right amount of coverage.

3. Carmex Lip Balm

Carmex - Make-up for Gingers

Chapped lips seem to be inevitable in the winter, and while I’m a big fan of all things Burts Bees and Blistex, nothing feels better on chapped lips than Carmex.

It’s been around forever, and while it doesn’t come in 50 flavours, or in any shades of pink, it provides instant relief to the most severely chapped lips.

Not only will it make your lips feel better, but your wallet too!

4. SPF like a pro

All redheads should wear SPF in the daytime. And yes, that goes for winter, too, those pesky UV rays are still out there!

La Roche-Posay’s Hydraphase UV Intense Riche is SPF 20, and is also really good at keeping any dryness at bay during the winter.

5. NARS Satin Lipstick in NIAGARA

Nars Niagara Satin Lipstick - Make-up for Gingers

NARS lipsticks are top notch. The satin lip texture gives you an opaque color with a touch of sheen, which looks great alone or over a matte finish when you don’t feel like going for a high gloss effect.

The NIAGARA shade looks like a mix between a neutral coral and a dark pink. While it’s not the most dramatic shade, it definitely looks the most natural when trying to bring out bold eye make-up.

6. The Ordinary 100% Plant-Derived Squalane

If, like many redheads, you have dry and sensitive skin, you’ll want a little extra hydration, particularly through winter. The Ordinary’s squalane serum can be applied to the face (and hair too!) to help lock in moisture.

7. Butter London 3-Free Lacquer in ‘Knees Up’

Butter London - Knees Up Nail Polish - Make-up for Gingers

Nothing screams Christmas like sparkly red nail polish. And while I’m sure you can find some cheap red nail polish with a glitter top coat, I doubt you can find a better nail lacquer than Butter London’s ‘Knees Up’.

Butter London was one of the first nail polish brands to create long-lasting lacquer without formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP. Not only is it safe, but it’s heavily pigmented so you don’t need more than two coats to get the richest and brightest color. And the best part is that it doesn’t chip or dull.

8. Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eye Liner - Make-up for Gingers

Glitter eye make-up is literally everywhere this season, and while it looks good on kids and teenagers, sometimes it’s a hard trend to pull off as an adult.

But Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter eyeliner allows you to dabble in the glitter trend without having too much of a good thing.

It goes on smoothly and you don’t have to worry about the glitter flaking off your eyelid. It’s a subtle hint of glitter that makes your eyes pop!

For those with green eyes, stick with the purple shade to compliment the green. Blue eyes should stick with either the gold or silver, and brown eyes look best with the green or pink shade.

Urban Decay (USA) $10.30 each; Debenhams £14.45

9. Redhead hair care products

Available at gingerfulhair.com or the Ginger Parrot Store

Armed with natural henna for amplifying your ginger colour and rose for a touch of sweetness, this Henna & Rose Shampoo and Conditioner work in complete harmony with each other. They enhance multi-tonal highlights and lowlights found in red hair, while nourishing and protecting it in ways mainstream products don’t.

Gingerful: £9.95 per shampoo, conditioner or hair mask, savings for bundles. Worldwide shipping.

10. L’Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

Keep your hair and skin glowing this winter with oil. One of the biggest struggles with beauty is trying to achieve shine without it looking oily.

The best part? You can also use it on your skin to keep it glowing as well! Mix one part dry oil with any moisturizer and you’ll achieve glowing skin that doesn’t scream, “I’ve been stuck inside all winter.”
