Being on the pale, neutral side, the shades I've found most flattering for lips are bright, clear juicy oranges; I still avoid pastel orangina or toasted brownish/terracotta shades. For eyes, my usual rule of Complexity Trumps All applies -- throw in some interesting light-refracting-as-well-as-reflecting glitter and even rusty shades become somewhat wearable. Although my personal preferences tend to the coral and clear again. Blush, I admit, still defeats me. Any suggestions of shades to try, and subsequent shades to pair it with, would be much appreciated, o wise and beautiful commentsphere!
