Let's play a game. Quick, name some red-headed celebrities. Common answers (according to Google images): Amy Adams, Lindsay Lohan (pre-druggie days), Nicole Kidman (pre-monochromatic skin + hair days), Julianne Moore, and Marcia Cross. Now let's take a closer look:

All beautiful, for sure. Nevertheless, none of these photos really seem like great make-up options for me, for one main reason. Need a hint?

The big issue: none of these popular red-headed starlets have brown eyes! Take another look: Amy = blue, Lindsay = blue, Nicole = blue, Julianne = green, Marcia = blue. Not a brown pair in the mix. Plus, just to add insult to injury, I'm not really on par with their hair color. They are all true red heads, while I dabble more in strawberry blonde-hood. When you type "strawberry blonde celebrity" into Google images, here's a sampling of what you get:

Never mind the fact that both Jessica and Sienna are faux-strawberry blonde, neither of them really match my overall coloring. Ms. Alba is a couple thousand shades tanner than I'll ever be, and then Ms. Miller has those blasted baby blue eyes again.
Apparently finding a celebrity with strawberry blonde hair and brown eyes is quite the task. As with all things in wedding planning, I had to resort to plan b in order to find some wedding make-up inspiration from my celeb friends: girl crushes.
