Check out my post all about oily skin here :)

Hey there! I'm curious is you have any good makeup tips for us gingers out there? I find it really hard to find anyone who has good advice for people like me who never know what colors go well with my hair and skin color. If not, I understand, it's a pretty odd question. Btw, love your blog! :D

Red hair is so fierce If I could pull off red hair I totally would lol!

Usually your hair color doesnt effect the colors of makeup one can pull off it’s more about undertones! If youre skin is more pink/cool you’d go for cool colors like pink blushes, taupe and grey eyeshadows, cool pinks (have a purple hue) and darker red lipsticks, etc. If youre skin is more yellow you’d go for warm colors like peaches, corals, warm pinks, bright warm oranges, etc. 

However I do find that warmer colors tend to flatter red heads best because red hair is warm. So blushes like peaches and corals. Eyeshadows like golds, bronze, copper, warm rich browns, etc will be flattering. 

Most red heads are more fair and have light skin tones so more pastel blushes and lip colors will suit best because anything too dark might be a bit overpowering. Light peaches and pink blushes and lip colors will work great! However I think a bright pink and red lip loks FAB with red hair ;)

You also might want to try brown eyeliner and mascara, it goes beautifully with red/auburn hair :)

any recommendations on dark vampy lip colors? :)

Do you know of a good single eyeshadow (high end or drugstore) that's a cranberry color? I've been looking for one for an Xmas look and I can't seem to find a good one.
