- Lips: Look for a pink shade with gold undertones. Freedman likes Benefit Fresh Squeezed Lip Gloss ($18), a pink-grapefruit tone.
- Cheeks: Pinks with a golden shimmer are the way to go. (Are you sensing a theme?) If you're having a hard time choosing the right shade for you, Freedman recommends testing a few colors side-by-side. Mauve, which has a bit too much brown, along with anything that's too gray, are both difficult to pull off. Instead, pick a color that might look shockingly bright, like salmon or apricot, but use sparingly for a sheer wash. Try Stila Convertible Color in Petunia ($25).
- Shadow: According to Freedman, a bronze shade with shimmer or a mid-toned fleshy taupe color both tend to be universally flattering. He likes Jemma Kidd Stardust Creme Shadow in Cosmos ($25), which comes in a chunky pencil-like dispenser, or MAC Paints in Bamboom ($16.50), a beige-brown with golden shimmer.
