She sat down with How to be a Redhead last week and shared her top 5 makeup tips for redheads:

1. Strong Lip:  “I love a pretty orange-reddish lip or a soft-pink pastel.”

2.Dark Circles: “Natural redheads have thinner skin, so many face the problem of dark under-eye circles. For very dark circles, think pink! Pink will cancel blue or greyish color under the eye.” Try: Senna Cosmetics, ‘Cameo’.

3.Sunscreen:  “Jan Marini is one of the best sunscreen products out there. Golfers love it.”

4.Eyebrows: “Leave them alone! Especially now,when the trend is for a more natural brow. They frame your eyes, nothing is more important (well, except for your skin).”

5.Eyeshadow: The 60’s eye is very flattering! “Try adding a little bit of shimmer in middle of lid and toward the outer area; and a darker muted shade that blends inward. Add a little shimmer high on your cheekbones with a blush and cat-eyeliner to fully bring out that 60’s look.”
