A Redhead's Guide to Beauty in 6 Steps


We all know the saying, “Blondes have more fun.” Well, a new phrase is taking over: “Reds are more rad.”
Notable celeb redheads include movie stars, models, singers and other style icons like Julia Roberts, Rihanna, Marcia Cross, Bryce Dallas Howard, Kate Walsh, Cynthia Nixon, Julianne Moore, Coco Rocha, Debra Messing, Khloe Kardashian, Emma Stone and Kristen Stewart.  


Feeling inspired? Going red is a bold and daring move and with these six steps from celebrity makeup artist Amy Hollier of Luxe Beauty Team at Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon, you can rock the red with the perfect make-up to match your vixen look.

Step 1: Prime Eyelids
To start, use a light brown or copper cream shadow on eyelids and buff out with a fluffy eye shadow brush so nothing is in the crease.
Step 2: Eye shadow
Apply copper/gold shadow to inner half of eyelids closest to the tear ducts. Then apply a bronze/brown shadow to outer half of eyelids. Blend the crease with a clean, fluffy brush.
Step 3: Eyeliner
For a more fashion/editorial look, opt for a dramatic cat eyeliner but in a plummy brown rather than black. It's much more wearable and accents red hair perfectly. Start by lining the lashline, then building the outer corners and extending out and up at the end of the lashline. Check eye to eye for balance.
Step 4: Eyelashes
Curl, curl and curl. Then apply black mascara to top and bottom lashes. Finish with 2 or 3 individual flares of false lashes on each outer corner. 
Step 5: Gorgeous Skin

Wipe away any fallen eye shadow and moisturize entire face. Next apply a sheer foundation or tinted moisturizer

Next apply a little glow to the temples and cheekbones with a liquid or cream bronzer. Lightly dust the center of the face with translucent powder to set. Add a little soft peachy blush to cheeks (I love Smashbox soft lights tint).


Step 6: Lips

Finish the look with a tinted lip balm
