Lori Depp, celebrity makeup artist and president of Serendeppity Lip Gloss, says she likes using mauve-ish pink shades for fair skin. The Color Wheel Mosaic Face Powder by New York Color combines four hues that work together to enhance the skin's overall appearance without looking too orange. With mostly cool pinks in its palette, the shade Pink Cheek Glow will look natural on women with cool undertones.
