5 Essential Beauty Tips for Redheads! | Simply Redhead


I run through my vital tips for getting the makeup you love every single time.

The reason I wanted to make this video was because I always struggled to know what the right products to choose were for my particular colouring (pale and ginge) when I first started using makeup – there just didn’t seem to be many ‘beginner’s tips’ videos tailored for redheads. So hopefully this will be a useful point of reference for anyone else also struggling!

Thanks for watching xx

  1. My wife is a redhead and I absolutely adore her! Love the milky skin, bright grey/blue eyes.. Probably a useless comment but I just wanted to let you know that I think that redheads or gingers are amazingly beautiful.. that includes of course you as well ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Laguna made me look muddy. I've never been able to wear bronzer until I found hoola lite.

  3. I was born with very strawberry blonde hair. Over my life it has turned dark brownish red. My skin can range from super pale to tan. So over the seasons my makeup and hair products vary on how I look.

  4. Police ! says:

    Wow. You are GORGEOUS!

  5. so helpful! I hate when I feel like my makeup is clashing with my hair

  6. Omg yes I know how you feel with the fact that there's no ginger brow stuff

  7. Kally117 says:

    For my fellow red heads a great brow tip would be I tint my brows a very light brown just to make them look even more natural when you fill them. Also for a darker strawberry blonde taupe is a great shade!

  8. GUUURRRL, you think your eye brows at bad..my eye brows are as thick and out of shape as a bush!

  9. Eliza D says:

    Hi Joanna ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm a redhead too and I'm currently conducting some research on the lack of beauty products available for redheads! If anyone wants to check out my survey, I'm conducting a poll about eyebrow dye colours for redheads. This is on my Facebook page 'Redhead Inc.' Here's the link ๐Ÿ™‚


  10. This sounds so much like me! I've never dyed my hair, 100% natural redhead, I've never messed with or cared about my eyebrows until recently bc i realized mine have no shape & are so light & sparse they're basically non-existent! Thank you for your videos!! You're gorgeous!

  11. do you have a video where you show how you apply your eye-shadow?

  12. It's strange form me because I have really dark red hair like auburn Kind of hair and my eye brows are brown they have a few red pieces but they are mostly brown. So people always ask me if I dye my hair… No I'm a natural ginger so is half my family XP haha

  13. Keera Ashton says:

    Cool tip ty

    Check out my books online Amazon by Keera Ashton

  14. For strawberry blonde-ish hair, colourpop's dope taupe brow products work really well for me! I was intimidated by how dark it seemed on the website, and after I tried out the pencil + brow pot and blended accordingly, it looked so nice and natural. Both products were very affordable as well.

    I hope this helps someone out, I couldn't figure out eyebrows at all until last year lmao

  15. Vix Mather says:

    I'm natural redhead but my eyebrows are naturally black so no one believes that I am a natural redhead

  16. I thought you were Gwyneth Paltrow. Thanks for tips!

  17. lockergr says:

    You're brows look superb! I've never tried coloring mine. One tip for pencils though… I have used Maybelline's medium brown eye and brow pencil as eyeliner since college when a roommate passed one my way. It matches perfectly with my red hair. I don't like it in my brows however. I think blond would look terrible on me. I may start threading, but isn't that pricey? All these beauty services add up fast.

  18. Kenzie says:

    someone should make a makeup company for gingers that would be helpful

  19. Delfine04 says:

    I have light blond eyebrows, since I was more blond than ginger when I was young, but now my hair is just a little bit lighter than yours. I dye my eyebrows now, in light brown and I fill them in with light brown powder and that seems to work pretty well. I would suggest to go for a warm toned light brown, instead of blond, since that tends to be more cool toned. For the rest of my face, I never go for orange shades, more brown/copper, because I don't want to look like an oompaloompa ๐Ÿ˜‰ and I don't wear ant foundation because my skin looks good as it is and I love my freckles way too much to hide them ๐Ÿ˜‰ just go with the flow and experiment, and make sure you hair is healthy because that's the first thing people look at. And never forget to love what nature gave you! โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  20. Ella xox says:

    I just fill my brown in brown, i dont really think it looks bad and i dont look good at all with lights eyebrows lol. I was basically born with none ahhaha

  21. Reminds me so much of Gwyneth Paltrow! So beautiful

  22. Aly Archer says:

    Please do a video over eyelash tinting for redheads!!

  23. I love my urban hair but no eyebrow color works on me seriously, it really annoying. And because I'm a ranga with pale skin it goes red really easy and my acne doesn't help so I'm just here with a pale body and red blotches on my face and it really sucks because people can't see my freckles
