CHEEKS: Peach and pinkish blush will help highlight the cheeks sweep on the apples of the cheek to add color the apples of the cheeks. A little bronzer by the hollow of the cheek gives a more dramatic finish to the look.
LIPS: a little color can go a long way. Shades of pink rose and watermelon with a little gloss can give you that sweet little smile.
