The problem: Nothing robs your day face of a healthy glow faster than brown-based cheek and lip color. Terracotta, brick, and even mauve can definitely define features, but what about brightening and making them look better? Remember, makeup is meant to amp up what nature is already doing: lips that look a touch rosier, cheeks that look a bit more flushed. This isn't saying that you can't do a fleshy- or bronzed-tone style. Just make sure it goes with the whole vibe of your look.
The fix: Choose warm, juicy shades for day. Soft pinks, peaches, or berry tones are universally flattering, not to mention younger and fresher looking, too. Get your glow on!
