Eyeshadow palettes for pale redheads

I'm looking for an eyeshadow palette that would work with very pale (neutral) skin, red hair and blue eyes. I generally wear browns and have a more "natural" look. I don't like purples, pinks or oranges and I am not a huge fan of matte eyeshadow. Any suggestions?


Blush suggestions are very welcome too!


Thanks 🙂

Charlotte Tilbury has eyeshadow sticks that are recommended based on eye color. They’re great! I think there is a champagne color for blue eyes. I got it and enjoy it even though my eyes are brown!

Thanks! The reviews are great on the eyeshadow sticks! I may have to try it 🙂

I’d go with coppers & will look absolutely gorgeous next to blue eyes! Anastasia has some great options in singles, and Laura Mercier has some amazing wet/dry shadows too!

Hi @jdjd44,

I have pretty much the same only I have green eyes, I don’t like browns, oranges or pinks for eyeshadow.  I also hate mattes.  I Love Silver, Gold, White, and sometimes blue, but have recently purchased some very nice palettes so I will be trying more soon.

 If you’re looking for a palette, Violet Voss, Natasha Denona, PAT McGRATH are great!

 Depending on color choices, I love the Chocolate Gold eyeshadow palette by Too Faced, that said, I swatched other Too Faced palettes in store and they don’t seem to be created equally, so at this time I can only back the Chocolate Gold palette for that brand.  What colors do you like? 

For blush, I would highly recommend a nice peach, they discontinued my regular one, so the closest that I could find was Estée Lauder color sculpting blush in peach passion, although I think they are currently out at Sephora.

 I would love to know what you find, let me know 😊.

❤️‘S, SuzieQ.

Fellow pale redhead here! My personal favorites for neutral shimmers are the Urban Decay Naked and the Naked 3, and Too Faced Natural Eyes and Chocolate Gold.

Urban Decay Naked2 Neutral, cool toned, taupe based You’ll avoid the oranges and it’s a good variety of shimmer

Re: RE: Eyeshadow palettes for pale redheads

Thanks! I ended up ordering Naked 2. I'll keep your other suggestions in mind next time 🙂
