Changing your hair colour affects more than just your locks. You need to consider changing your wardrobe and makeup too. I asked one of my favourite redheads, Sara-May of Makeup Utopia for her tips on choosing the best lipsticks for redheads.

Essential lipstick wardrobe for redheads

Whether you were born a redhead, or have decided to take the plunge into the world of fiery locks, it can be hard to know which lipsticks are going to complement such a bold hair colour. As a natural redhead and self-proclaimed makeup aficionado, I wanted to share with you what I believe are the 5 essential lipsticks for every redhead.

1. The Perfect Nude

Best lipsticks for redheads

There are many nude lipsticks on the market, and most of them have strong yellow undertones. For most redheads, a pink based nude is going to be more flattering.

Try Blankety by M.A.C or Lychee Crush by Face of Australia.

2. The Classic Neutral

Everyone needs a great neutral lipstick that looks good with everything and is appropriate for every occasion.

Try Viva Glam V by M.A.C or L’Oreal Paris Shine Caresse in 101 Lolita

3. The Peachy Pink

Peachy Pinks are perfect for daytime wear, when you want to brighten your face up without making too much of a statement.

Try Ere Perez Rich Olive Oil Lipstick in High Tea or Face of Australia Peaches & Cream.

4. The Raspberry Pink

There’s nothing quite like a bold raspberry pink when you want a bright but wearable statement lip.

Try Lancome Rouge in Love in 377N Midnight Rose or Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Grapevine.

5. The Classic Red Lip

Nothing beats a classic vampy red lip when you want to channel an old-school bombshell like Christina Hendricks in Mad Men.

Try Lime Crime Velveteen in Red Velvet or Makeup Forever Rouge Artist Intense in Moulin Rouge.

Bonus Recommendation for Lipstick Level:EXPERT

6. The In-your-face Orange

Not for the faint hearted, but when worn with confidence a bright orange lip exudes power, and a devil-may-care attitude.

Try Lady Danger by M.A.C or OCC Lip Tar in Safety Orange.

Are you a redhead? Do you have a favourite lipstick? One that makes you feel fabulous every time you wear it? I’m always on the lookout for a new favourite, so please share your recommendations in the comments below.

These are lovely! My only reservation is that I wouldn’t recommend lime crime products- people find *hairs* in their lippies! ew!
