Lip and Cheek Colors!

Hi! So I have a really hard time figuring out what lip and cheek colors look good on me. I have very fair skin (I think blue undertones), dark brown hair, and hazel eyes. I am looking for a benefit blush and a YSL lipstick, but am also curious as to what you all think. Thanks!!

Re: Lip and Cheek Colors!

Same coloring here!  I use Dandelion by Benefit and Exposed or Dollface by Tarte for cheeks.  For eyes, I wear a mix of Benefit's World Famous Neutrals in "Everyday", and I wear Whoppin' Watermelon or Mighty Mimosa Chubby Sticks by Clinique on my lips.  I also use Bare Pink or Rose Blossom Rich Lip Color by Bobbi Brown.

Re: Undertones


The lady at MAC tells me I have both cool and warm undertones. I think I lean more cool - I would describe my skin as fair and "pinky".

Some colors in the Tarte blush are :




YSL lipstains- #7 Coral Aquatique

                      #15 Rose Vinyl


Hope this helps!

Illamasqua blushes are really nice.  I have yet to meet a person that the shade "Katie" doesn't flatter.

Re: Lip and Cheek Colors!

I can't tell you with cheeks, still mastering blush myself, but lip colors are interesting, I read a tip from another user (probably lylysa?) about matching the color to the INSIDE of the lip, where the moist part begins.  This will give you a smooth finish and will work with a majority of skin tones.  After using this technique, I don't believe I have purchased any more mismatchy lip colors!

Smiley Tongue Hehe, the "pucker" up technique for a true neutral color! I can't even count how many times I've shared that one!

I'm also very fair with dark brown hair and find peach shades to be fool-proof - especially for spring and summer.


My hands-down favorite blush is NARS "Sex Appeal" (light peach).

Dior Addict lipstick in "Tokyo" is a peachy-pink shade I

fell in love with last summer.


As for the brands you mentioned:

From Benefit I also like "Dandelion" (a pale pink) and "Sugar Bomb" (blend of shades) and I find both to be very natural looking.


As for YSL, their Rouge Pur Couture glossy stain in "17 Encre Rose" is lovely on.  It looks like a scary bubble gum pink but on the lips it's very pretty!

Thanks so much! I was wondering... Do you have warm or cool skin? Just curious if these gorgeous colors would look good on my cool skin? Thank you again!
