Makeup Colors for Red Hair and Fair Skin

Makeup colors for red hair and fair skin women can seem a bit tricky. Don't be afraid to experiment with color. Afterall, the beauty of makeup is that is comes off easier than it is put on.

Foundation: Match it to your skin tone. Don't choose a darker shade for more color. Fair skin is in, so flaunt it!

Eyeshadow: Experiment with warm natural shades of brown for the lid and crease of the eye or choose from the pallet of greens. Choose a light shade of cream for below the brow along the brow bone.

Eyeliner: Choose a gold toned eyeliner to bring out the gold in your hair.

Lips: If wearing brown eyeshadow, choose a soft tan for the lips, or go with red with brown undertones.

Mascara: Choose a soft brown to match the color of your natural lashes.

Cheek Color: Choose a soft apricot or light brown blush with yellow undertones.

Hint: Cheek color should always be the last makeup applied to the face. Don't forget to dab just a little on your chin and forehead with your blush brush to balance the face.
