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.

Try: MAC Transformed Collection Huggable Lip Color in Glamorized, P1,300, at SM Makati; Revlon Cream Blush in Flushed, at department stores

  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.

Try: Maybelline Creamy Sensational Matte in Craving Coral, P299; Bobbi Brown Highlighting Powder in Sunset Glow, P2,650, at Greenbelt 5

  1. Nude Lipstick + Dusty Rose Blush

This fail-safe combo is suitable for all skin tones.

Try: Human Nature Perfect Flush Cream Tint in Petal, P395, at www.humanheartnature.com; Maybelline V-Face Blush Contour, P399, at department stores

  1. 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

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

Try: Make Up For Ever Artist Rouge Lipstick in 403, P1,650, at SM Megamall; Pink Sugar Sweet Cheeks HD Color in South Beach, P499, at department stores
