I just bought a new NARS blush I belive the color is called Mounia, I love the color and I can mix it with clear lip gloss for a really cute gloss that is really flattering.
Most people always suggest Maroonish and Burgundy colors for African Americans but I dont really like looking so "heavy" all the time. I would love some tips on how to do a lighter peachy/pinkish face.
I'm on the fairer end of the AfAm scale, so I generally don't do maroons or burgundies. In terms of my eyes, I do Stila Jezebel (which is copper) and Twig (a dark brown). My blush is Prescriptives' Desert Rose.
For lips, it varies. Right now, I'm mainly using MAC Honey Flower as my neutral and Plum-Like if I want something cool and pinkish. I also use High Tea, which is a light beige that I mix if my eyes are dark and smudgy.
