This can be a deceptively strong type of pigmentation and calls for surprisingly deep colors to balance the colors of the face. For the last 3 seasons of Clear Spring (Bright Spring), Clear Winter (True Winter), and Bright Winter (Bright Winter), I’ve used Estee Lauder lip colors. Bright, clear colors are easy to find in their collection.
Remember that blush and lipstick must be in the same color family. Coral blush and blue-pink lips doesn’t work. You’ll need both products in both colors, right out of your swatch book.
Lips: Estee Lauder Gloss Stick in Pop Pink and Summer Melon ; EL Pure Color Long Last in Lotus Pink (light color) , Wild Rose, Raspberry Pop, Nectarine, Chelsea Rose, Apricot Sun, Spiced Coral.
Blush: NARS Torrid is the coral blush.
You need a blue-pink one too and it’s hard to find. Try MAC Fleur Power.
Clarins Framboise (the newer one, number 80) (why would they name 2 different blush colours Framboise? did I miss something?) belongs to this group as well.
Eyeliner: Clinique Quickliner in Dark Chocolate or Slate.
Eyes: Bobbi Brown Grey, Flint, Steel, Slate, and Hot Stone.
Look also at Stila Kamet, Kalahoo, Sajama, Storm. Luckily, you don’t have to go further than your screen to see these colours, here from KarlaSugar at TNBTTGSY.
MAC Nehru, Print, Brun, Mystery, Copperplate, and Contrast are shown here.
Eye hilite : MAC Orb, Vanilla – but look, has everyone noticed Paula’s Choice eyeshadow in Cream? I mean it’s perfect. Although I avoid this sort of statement because it’ s usually false, this color might be appropriate to any of the 12 seasons of a medium-or-lighter skin tone. A good highlighter is so basic and so hard to find.
Mascara : black.
