A great lipstick and blush have long been established as every girl's makeup essentials. But unknown to many, there are specific lipstick and blush pairings that can up the ante of one's beauty look in a snap! So read on as we list down what shades of lippies you should pair with your blushes.

  1. Pink Lipstick + Pink Blush

A cotton candy-like hue on the cheeks is the best match for a hot pink pout.

  1. 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.
