Learn How She ‘Rocks it like a Redhead’!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today is a day to celebrate Irish heritage and since about 10% of the Irish population has red hair, it’s important to celebrate the famous redheads of our generation; specifically this redhead.
If you live outside the UK her face might not be familiar, but this Scottish-born redhead beauty is Britain’s ginger to watch.
Karen Gillan got one of the leading roles on Britain’s longest running sci-fi show, Doctor Who, in 2010, replacing another famous British ginger, Catherine Tate (who you can currently watch on NBC’s hit comedy The Office), and she soon became the girl to look up to for all ginger women around the UK.
“I got teased for being a redhead when I was younger, which is strange because I’m Scottish and there are loads of us – we should unite forces! I love my red hair.”
So, how does Karen Rock it like a Redhead?
If there is something that I love about Karen Gillan it is that she is not afraid to wear any color. If you look through the pages of magazines and pictures of the events she attends (or even those paparazzi pictures where she always looks fabulous!), you will see she’s worn every hue from orange to blue, including yellow, red and of course, green too! She also loves rocking pastel shades, dark burgundies and my favorite redhead colors—purple and plum!
Her style is impeccable, mixing statement pieces with vintage clothing and very small skirts or shorts and you can always see her out in the cold wearing extremely long coats and accessorized with maxi-bags.
Karen’s makeup is natural and toned down using peach, soft pink or earthy colors; though she is sometimes more daring and goes for a statement smokey eye, heavy mascara or even a super red lip!
But, Karen’s biggest secret is how she keeps her porcelain skin healthy after hours and hours of makeup and stress on set.
She’s confessed her go-to cream is Chanel’s Précision UV Essentiel with SPF50. She explains: “I always wear sunscreen in the summer. I like porcelain skin and it’s definitely better than going red [from a sunburn].”
Karen’s hair stands out by itself, but sometimes it looks even redder than usual. Apart from wearing color-specific conditioners, if you are blessed with natural red hair and want to make it look fiery red without having to use hair dye, I’d recommend Revlon Professional’s Nutri Color Cream on shades 734 or 740.
This conditioning cream contains non-permanent coloring for natural or bottled redheads who want to keep their color lasting longer and makes your hair look healthy while making your red locks look even more pigmented!
“I’d never had a problem with being tall, and in terms of having red hair I always had a belief it would benefit me in the long run.”
We can’t wait to see Karen’s rise of success rise and make all of us redheads proud!
