answer 2
South Beach would be a good shade for your features, even if you get darker during the summer it will add a little bronzy shimmer to your cheeks. During the winter it will have a slight pink shimmer which will make your skin look dewy and glowing.

I would pair it will the Orgasm lip gloss, Hula Hula eyeshadow duo and Kyoto eyeliner for a complete look =)

answer 4
I have EXACTLY the same coloring! I can be pretty fair-skinned in the winter, but get very tan easily. I use Maui as a blush and find that it works regardless of where I am on the spectrum of fair-tan. It is one of the matte colors, and it gives a very fresh, "I just skipped here!" natural flush.

For a shimmery color, I would suggest Portofino, though it is a little pinker and less natural.

I have the same dark hair, medium skin as you (but I have green eyes). I originally bought palm beach and copacobana online. I liked both, but after a visit to a sephora store, I changed my mind before they even arrived. I ended up getting south beach (good for cheeks and as a bronzer), I got maldives (a great highlighter around the eyes and over powder blushes), and malibu (more brown than the pic on this site and really gives a flushed look to the cheeks). These products go on very sheer, yet are buildable. Don't be afraid of how dark the pictures appear in the pictures. Good luck!!

palm beach and cannes look like pretty colors for you. they are just dark enough to work with your skin tone as long as you blend and will work well with your brunette hair and hazel eyes... also, the metallic undertones of each will bring your face look together. hope this helps! try them out at the store!

Apply this after you have completed the rest of your face. Apply this straight from the tube onto the apples of your cheeks. Dot in a circle on your cheeks and quickly blend away. if you have a darker shade, then you can use this as a bronzer. Apply this to the hollows of your cheeks and contour.

Apply it after foundation. I prefer to use fingers and if I want it heavy in some areas then apply it straight from the tube onto your skin. If using on lips, use a lip brush or finger to highlight.

The multiple can be used in a lot of ways. It can be used before foundation for a subtle glow, as blush, cream eyeshadow, highlight, and lip color. It can be applied directly to the face, applied with the fingers, or with a synthetic brush.

The multiple is great as an eyeshadow base and the lips as well as the cheeks. If it's a darker color, south beach, or one of the bronzers... the hollows of the cheeks, jawline and sides of your nose will give you a great contour (easy on the side of the nose, that takes some practice). Lighter colors are nice on the apples or top of your cheekbones for a highlight, down the bridge of your nose, little on the forehead. Copa is nice on the cupid's bow... little heart shaped section on the top of your lip... that will help give you a plumper pout. It's. Apply it with your fingers and resist the urge to just use it like a stick and smear it on.

I have your same coloring and I use Orgasm. It does not look like makeup; it looks like a I have a happy flushed glow. Just like the name implies! I have tried others and they make my skin look dirty, or sparkly, or clownish. The Orgasm shade blends perfectly for a natural radiant flush. I know I sound like an infomercial, but I just love this stuff!

I would recommend The Multiple in Orgasam. It will look gorgeous on you... if you could head to a store and try it out I think you'll like that one. My one concern may be that its too close to your skin tone, if that's the case you can build the color a little more.

I'm not sure if the Multiple is oil free. It goes on smooth and feels like a dry powder, so I don't think that there's any oil in it.
It has no scent and it doesn't feel oily or heavy. I don't know if that helps, but I can't find the ingredient list.

Orgasm is truly a universally flattering color, even if you haven't been able to try it in store I'm confident enough that if you ordered it you would love it. I've let several of my friends in varying skin tones try it and it always looks great. As far as contouring, I haven't really figured that out yet, but there is quite a bit of shimmer and if you know what you're doing I'm sure it would work.

I've never really contoured, but if it helps, this product is *quite* sheer. Orgasm flatters all skin tones. I have friends of all colors and I've never met a girl that Orgasm didn't complement. For contouring purposes, you'd most likely get a better result from the blushes.

I would recommend a buffing bronzer brush like the E.L.F studio powder brush. Its full and round and flat topped and is only 3 dollars. A comparably shaped brush that you can get on sephora.com would be the bare escentuals heavenly face brush ($30) but I think that any somewhat firm and full blending/buffing brush would do.

I got so mad at my friend Candy for using one of my good brushes on this! It's really best to use either your fingers or a sponge- it'll just gunk up your brush and you will have to wash it after each use. If you dead set on using a brush, I would buy one to dedicate to this only.
PS- the effect was totally lost with the brush and had to be hand blended anyways.
