A lot of is just practice, practice, practice! Warmer shades tend to go better with other warm shades (and same with cool and cool), but they can be mixed. I like to go with two warmer areas (say eyes and cheeks) and then a cooler lip – but it can just depend on how everything comes together. One way to test drive a combination without committing is by swatching the shades on your hand or arm.
