Red hair is
unique and gorgeous looking – but it can be harder to find flattering makeup as
the hair colour can be bright and attention-grabbing on its own already. These
5 stars all have fiery locks, and they’ve figured out the makeup that suits
them well over the years of trying out different combinations. Some love going
for a statement look and aren’t afraid to experiment with bold eye shadow
colours or lipsticks, while some like fleshy-toned shades that suit their
delicate looking complexions.
1. Bella Thorne
believes it's about finding the right shades for your skin and hair colour:
"I used to think that I couldn't wear pink but I have found that you can
wear pink. Find a shade that compliments both your hair and skin colour. For
me, the blush pinks work best. I also find that with red hair, the less makeup
you wear, the better. I wish I had freckles, at least more than I do....I'd let
them shine all the time."
2. Christina Hendricks
wears red lipstick to go with her red hair: "I have a drawer full of
lipsticks. I try everything, though reds and corals are my favorite colors.
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Pop Life, which is an orangey red, is a nice
mix of both."
3. Connie Britton
green eye makeup: “You know, I think all my makeup tips go against the ones
people recommend for red hair,” she says. “For example, I love using green
colors on my eyes. A small pop of color works for me, but I don’t know if many
red heads would want to use a bright green eyeliner!”
4. Emma Stone
makeup artist revealed that she often uses a coral tone lip colour on the
actress: "Coral is one of the most beautiful, complementary colours on any
skin tone. It got a bad rap for a really long time, but it does amazing things
for your complexion and lights up your face."
5. Julianne Moore
loves rich lipstick colours and thinks they work great with the tone of her
hair: "People think redheads have to stick to so-called redheaded
colors—all oranges and browns—but those look kind of muddy on me. I like a
fuchsia, a berry, or a red with blue undertones."
