Gingers everywhere, take note! Christina Hendricks is showing you the perfect makeup palette for almost any redhead. Ms. Hendricks strutted the red carpet at Cannes for her new movie Lost River looking like a modern day Pre-Raphaelite goddess.

Showing off her alabaster skin, Christina opted for a natural coverage foundation with a glowing finish. And those eyes! Using a taupe bronze palette, the Mad Men star showed off her blue sparklers with a subtle smoky eye. We also loved how the sheer berry lipstick contrasted with the fair actress's skin. 

Try the Look: Prep skin by applying a brightening exfoliating mask like Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask while you're in the shower. After you rinse off the mask, apply a gentle firming and hydrating moisturizer like Nude Skincare Advanced Renewal Moisturizer.

Then, camouflage any fine lines or pores and ensure your makeup lasts all night by using a primer like e.l.f Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer. Then, apply a brightening foundation like BareMinerals BareSkin Pure Brightening Serum Foundation.

After applying concealer under eyes and on entire upper eye area to act as a primer, use a flesh or ivory matte powder eye shadow to cover the entire upper eye area. Then, apply a shimmery champagne eye shadow like the one from the Josie Maran Argan Beautiful Eyes Palette in Beautiful Nudes to eyelids.

Now, using a small eye brush, apply a shimmery bronzy taupe eye shadow like Rouge Bunny Rouge Long-Lasting Eye Shadow in Rufous-Tailed Weaver on the outer half of your creases. Then, make a V-shape with the outer corners of your creases and eyes. Blend like your life depends on it.

Now, use a brown gel eyeliner pencil like Votre Vu Le Jolie Crayon in Chocolat to make a very narrow line along your upper lash line. Then, use the pencil to line just the outer third of your lower lash line.

To give your eyes Christina's sparkle, use an eyeliner brush to apply the champagne-hued shadow along the lower lash line. Use a smudger to blend. Complete the eye makeup by applying two to three coats of your favorite defining mascara.

Now, to make your lips look freshly bitten, start by exfoliating lips with a sugar scrub or your toothbrush. Then, apply a sheer rosy lipstick like Perricone MD No Lipstick Lipstick, which will give your lips a natural flush.

Can you tell we loved Christina's makeup? Should we raise our hand when we're gushing? Now if we had our way, we would have put that gorgeous red hair up into a retro chignon.

Too Joan? Soon we're going to need to face the reality that Christina is not actually her character from Mad Men. It's a hard truth to swallow, but a look like this certainly makes it easier.
