One for all the redheads....

All the years I have been doing makeup there has been one common comment from a particular group of ladies.
My beautiful redheads.
I love these ladies to death, and for the longest time was exceedingly jealous of their gorgeous locks. *As you can see in the photo, I recently decided to go for it and become one myself.*
The only problem I've had with these ladies was their universal statement of....
"I can't wear bright colors because of my hair. I have to stick with only neutrals."
Granted, neutral colors do look very beautiful and can make the hair the true statement. However, there are some very beautiful colors that not only accentuate the hair but can make your beautiful features stand out even more. Case in point.....
Purples and pinks. The purple not only helps bring out the green in my blue green eyes, but also contrasts the red beautifully. The light pinks in the cheeks and lips give a nice rosy glow to complete the simple look.
So redheads.... ENOUGH EXCUSES!! Try new colors, you'll be surprised at what a difference you will see. Besides, if you don't like it you can always wash it off and try something else!
To my beautiful redhead client (you know who you are) who inspired this little rant... thank you for trusting my advice and then going with it! The green on your eyes truly was gorgeous!

agreee!!!! I have no problems as a redhead wearing color. It also makes me a bit more versatile as far as being able to wear warm and cool colors. Great point!
