Answer:

My own heritage is Celtic and most of the women in my family are pale skinned, red haired of varying shades and dark brown or hazel green eyes. With that being said, here are some quotes you may wish to investigate further:
From http://www.data-wales.co.uk/celt6.htm
"We know from ancient writers and the evidence of portraits like the one above that the Celts wore their hair long and that men grew beards and moustaches.
Roman stone reliefs show Celts wearing tunics or tabard style garments made of animal skins. Farmers are depicted wearing a knee length hooded cloak. The statue below is that of a Celtic warrior clad in a tunic of animal skins. In war, the Celts used the sword and the spear. They carried an oval shield and their armies often made use of light chariots. They are known to have used a particular style of war trumpet, an instrument which curved upward from the mouthpiece and terminated several feet above the user's head. The harsh sounds issued from the mouth of a grotesque animal head design fixed at the top. Little is know about the clothing of Celtic women since they do not appear in Roman carving which typically features Celtic prisoners taken in battle.

From: http://www.britannia.com/wonder/michell2.html
"...Nor is there any more certainty about the date of the Celts' arrival. One can speak of Celtic culture and languages, but there is no single Celtic race; Celtic speakers vary in appearance from short and swarthy to tall and fair."
From http://www.watson.org/~leigh/celts.html "The Celts impressed the Greeks and Romans with their bold dress and powerful appearance. Generally characterized by classical observers as a people of fair hair, of red or gold, and fair complexions, (although the people of the British Isles were described as small and dark-haired) most Celtic women apparently stood taller than the average Roman citizen. Celtic women, upon reaching maturity, adopted a complex braided style for their hair, and wore dyed and embroidered dresses. Plaids, or wrapped woven cloaks, were common for men and women alike, and gold and silver torques and armrills, as well as rings, adorned wealthy Celts. Brooches that held closed the openings of dresses and plaids were another common feature of Celtic dress. Gallic men commonly spiked their hair and bleached it to an almost white color with chalky water, and wore their beards long, while the Bretons and Picts tattooed their arms and faces with blue. Many Danish and English bogs have yielded archeological evidence of cloth and dress, and Roman historians such as Tacitus also document some of the customs of everyday Celtic life. "

There are several internet sites that refer to Celtic appearance. Perhaps it would be helpful to you to read further about the history to get a better picture of the races of people that were later described as "Celts".

Hope this helps.
