The Best M+B Red Hair Shade For Your Skin Tone


Thinking of going red? We don’t blame you. Everyone from Rihanna to Blake Lively has tried it out and the results are always amazing. Before you make the switch though it’s really important that you find the right auburn shade for your skin tone. Picking the wrong one can draw out all sorts of crazy colours in your skin from pink all the way to green, eek! To avoid any mistakes we’re breaking down our 3 red shades to help you find the right one for you.


St Tropez

Tell me about it: St Tropez is a warm strawberry blonde with a mix of sand, ginger and red tones.

Who would this work for: This shade is perfect if you have very fair skin with pink undertones as it will help to brighten and even out your complexion. As a rule very fair skin looks best with a golden or strawberry blonde over a dark red.


I Think We’re Alone Now

Tell me about it: I Think We’re Alone Now is our dreamy copper shade with chestnut, copper and burnished brown undertones.

Who would this work for: This shade is universally flattering but would work best on someone with a neutral undertone in their skin. There’s always the risk that olive skin can look a bit green next to red but as long as you avoid anything too orange and stick to warm cinnamon shades like this one, you won’t have to worry.


I Said Red

Tell me about it: I Said Red is our vibrant, cherry red shade with darker, ruby red undertones.

Who would this work for: This shade would be perfect for anyone with a neutral or warm undertone, especially olive or dark skin. You might want to avoid this shade if you have very pale skin and a red undertone as it can be too contrasting and will draw out the pink tones in your skin.
