Reddish complexion and cheeks.

I'll be lighting for an interview in a couple weeks and although I have worked with the subject before, I have not let her. I plan on using a large soft key with just bead board to bounce some fill. Still deciding about kicker/rim. The background will be all black. The subject matter is pretty serious, in this matter she is an "expert" and I would like to make her look as good as possible (obviously).
Here is where I would like some feedback; her complexion is pretty fair, and her cheeks and skin tone in her face is a little red. I feel like she may be a bit self conscious about it. What can I do to help minimize the "redness"? Obviously makeup will be key. I'll be shooting progressive on a DVX, would there be an advantage shooting tungsten verses daylight? Maybe pull some red in camera?
Thanks a lot!

Turn off the "Cine-Like" color matrix, which I think tends to boost red chroma in the DVX100.
Simply turning down the overall chroma (color saturation) may help.

I appreciate the info. I'll keep the cosmetic gel tip in mind though this time around I'll not have access to any. Turning off the "Cine-Like" setting is certainly a good idea, and I think I'll be futzing with the chroma for sure. I will definately try the CTB on the key, that may be a good idea aesthetically as well.
The shoot is still a ways out, but I'll will try to get a screen grab or a still to post.
