skin
foundation
The majority of the redheads have fine, almost transparent, skin. In the case that the bridal ceremony is early, the usage of sun-blocking cream is necessary since their skin produces minimum melanin and they are prone to sun-burns. In order to look natural (because of their fine skin) the makeup foundation should be light. Same direction applies if there are freckles, so that we avoid creating a “mask” on the face.

blush
There is a wide range of color hues that suit well the redheads. Top ones are pinks, corals and warm browns. Due to their fair skin, bronzing as well as contouring should be very subtle so that it won't “stain” the face. Think of them as soft touches with a hint of colour.

eyes
Usually their skin -and I am refering to the natural redheads and especially to the ones with pink based complexion- contains a lot of blue in it. This appears as dark circles under the eyes. They should be covered neatly.

eyeshadow
If you have green eyes, or belong to the rare case of a blue-eyed redhead, you should use earthy hues in warm tones (eg. Pink / red / brown / aubergine). In the case that you have brown eyes, if you wish you could incorporate blue and olive green colors at your bridal makeup. Always finish the rest of the makeup in brown and copper tones.

eyeliner & mascara
Eyeliner is absolutely amazing on redheads' eyes. Maybe this heritage is coming from old school divas or is simply happening since their eyes always need extra depth in them. Having light colored eyebrows and eyelashes demands a little extra mascara and eyeliner. Mascara shoiuld be black, or even purple / aubergine in order to make green and blue eyes to pop out.

lips
We either opt for a lipstick in a natural soft beige and pink tone, or go for bright coral and red. In any case remember this very rule: never choose a color exactly like your hair color. For a modern result, especially to the ones that have pink complexion, the lipstick color should be cold toned (even if you have orange-red hair!). If you are not the type that loves lipsticks, lip stains and glosses are ideal for you. For a natural result go for one at blood color, or even choose berry tones.
