Christina Hendricks once said in an interview with Redbook Mag, “I’m a natural blonde. I’ve been dyeing it red for more than 20 years. I’ve always felt like I was a natural redhead — like I was an imposter as a blonde.” Although she isn’t natural, her timeless beauty is a true inspiration to redheads everywhere.
Christina became famous on the hit TV show, Mad Men where she plays Joan, the saucy secretary. Joan’s look is pure, classic beauty, and Christina’s everyday makeup look isn’t much different from hers: coral lips, neutral eyeshadow, liquid black eyeliner. It’s a perfect, go-to look for all redheads.
