Help me buy makeup for my ginger sister!

So I'm kind of an idiot when it comes to makeup, and I'd like to get my older sister some nice stuff for Christmas, but I'd love some suggestions.

She has very red hair, blue eyes, and typical redhead pale skin with freckles, and her eyelashes/eyebrows are so light that you almost can't see them.

Does anyone have any recommendations for goodeye makeup/maybe an eyeshadow palette/blush/other basics that would work well? I've googled around a bit but some of you guys seem to be experts so I thought I'd check here too :-) I'd like to order from Sephora in time for Christmas, so any suggestions would be welcomed!

I was thinking of the Naked 2! I'll just have to ship it to her directly, because if it comes to me first I might be tempted to keep it...

I love Nars in Mekong for redheads with a pretty cat eye Although the palette would surely cover your need for eye shadow.

Does your sister wear lipstick?

Ps: Thanks for posting that Kati! I think #1 one will be far better for my olive skin though

Anything with plums or purples may be pretty on her as well.
