I think you would look good with red highlights. Maybe medium to lighter red. They'd look pretty with your skin and green eyes.

HTH

Going caramel would only require you to slightly break your base.. Wouldn't need to leave the bleach on long so it wont dry you out too bad. If you highlight, request an oil based bleach, as it keeps your hair moist during processing

Something to keep in mind when you go to get your highlights is the fact that they are likely to get lighter especially during these sunny summer months when you tend to spend more time outdoors (and in the sun). Your stylist can always tone them if necessary though.
