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.
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
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.
2. The Classic Neutral
Everyone needs a great neutral lipstick that looks good with everything and is appropriate for every occasion.
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.
4. The Raspberry Pink
There’s nothing quite like a bold raspberry pink when you want a bright but wearable statement lip.
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.

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.
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.
