1. Pink Lipstick + Pink Blush
A cotton candy-like hue on the cheeks is the best match for a hot pink pout.
Try: MAC Transformed Collection Huggable Lip Color in Glamorized, P1,300, at SM Makati; Revlon Cream Blush in Flushed, at department stores
2. Orange Lipstick + Golden Pink Highlighter
Since orange is already a strong hue, a hint of a rose gold glow is enough to brighten your complexion.
Try: Maybelline Creamy Sensational Matte in Craving Coral, P299; Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Sunset Glow, P2,650, at Greenbelt 5
3. Nude Lipstick + Dusty Rose Blush
This fail-safe combo is suitable for all skin tones.

4. Deep Mauve + Dusty Rose Blush
Mauve is a dark pink hue with hints of purple. This can be balanced by a sheer wash of neutral pink blush.
Try: Sleek Matte Me in Velvet Slipper, at department stores; Pixi Beauty Blush Duo with Kabuki Brush in Rose Gold, P990, at www.glamourbox.ph
5. Red Lipstick + Mauve Blush or Coral Pink Blush
Red lipstick may come in warm or cool shades. If it has a hint of pink, then a mauve blush will be a perfect match. Warm reds will look great with orangey pink blushes.
Try: NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella and Stila Convertible Color in Tulip, both at Rustan's
6. Dark Lipstick + Bronzer
To keep your plum lipstick from making you look washed out or too rebellious, gently sweep bronzer on the cheeks towards the cheekbones.
