A beauty subscription box dedicated to redheads and containing 100 percent redhead-suitable products! What will they think of next?

Every redhead should rock a red lipstick, but be sure to get the perfect shade. The red you wear has to complement your skin tone AND the hue of your red hair. The best way to get the perfect match is to try a variety, from orange-reds to blue-reds. Or head to your local beauty department and seek out professional advice!

Not a strict rule to follow, but yellow gold jewellery is very complementary to red hair. The warm tone will dress up any outfit and will complement your gorgeous freckles.

Sunscreen

Sunscreen is forever your best friend, stored in your handbag, desk draw, gym bag and car. Be sure to pick SPF 50+ to get the highest protection against both UVA and UVB rays.

Any redhead knows the struggle. You’ve been standing in Priceline for 40 minutes and you’re still deciding which colour you should go with. Taupe or brown? Even the auburn option is generally a different shade of red than you need. To make it easier, find an eyeshadow that matches your colour and fill in your brows using a small angled brush.
