Embrace Fair Skin
"Too much bronzer is a nightmare for pale skin," Ascher says. Instead, apply an illuminating cream, like Fresh Twilight Freshface Glow. If you must bronze, keep it light--Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzing Powder in Maui is perfect for a sheer, natural-looking glow like Kate Bosworth's.

Medium Tones Are Pretty In Pink
For mid-depth skin, Ascher advises going light and creamy." Light pinks and pastels [like Eva Mendes'] look great on this skin," he says. Brighten up with Nars Cream Blush in Penny Lane and Koh Gen Do Maifanshi Lip Gloss in Shell Pink.

Go Natural With Dark Skin
For deep tones, Ascher recommends "natural nudes" that are close to your own skin, like Zoe Saldana. Many designers, including Michael Kors, D&G, and Vera Wang played with barely-there makeup on the 2011 Spring runways. Layer two silky shades, like Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Suede, and get a subtle lip look with Armani Beauty Sheer Lipstick in 50.
