Okay, usually skin tones you either have pink undertones, olive undertones, or yellow undertones. Um, she’s got a lot of pink under her skin. The more, okay you can neutralize pink and red with kind of yellow powder. I actually have yellow powder that neutralizes pink. So if she wants a little bit less rosy look she can just put a little bit of yellow powder over it which will kind of neutralize the red. They also have green powder which will do the same thing. And if you have more olive skin, a little bit darker, the best colors to go with are the golds and corals. Kind of go with the coral blush, coral color lipstick. Hair color is also important. Like her she has blonde and brown streaks, she is going to really want to play up the blonde in her hair by using golds. Golds save color on everybody, don’t use gold if you have really fair skin and then you want to go with the beige. If you have really pink undertones like hers, stay away from the oranges. Don’t use melon don’t use coral. Stick to pink and kind of brownish pink. I would use a brownish pink on her. If you have more olive in your skin, melon, coral the oranges look really pretty. The orange color not the oranges. If you have more olive complexion, darker tan I would use probably your melons your orange colors. If, hmm, see she has so much pink in her skin it’s kind of fun to kind of play up the pink around her cheeks. It’s really really easy and it looks natural. A good trick for running the right color blush for you is your pinch your cheek and let the blood rush to your cheek and when you let go whatever color you turn that’s what color blush you need. See, hers turned kind of a really light light pink, a dust pink, which means this dust pink is probably the best pick for her. You want to keep it as natural as possible. Just try to keep your natural color going. Yeah, see that’s much more pink than that.
