Hitha Prabhakar Bold, Bright Cheeks

Help! "I've been wearing the same shade of shadow and lipstick for almost 13 years."
-- Hitha Prabhakar, 34, CNBC contributor and founder of the Style File Group

Trend to try: Bright cheeks.
A vivid flush is the perfect way to make the transition from winter to spring.

To get cheeky:
Find the hue for you. Your cheek color should give you a lit-from-within radiance. If your skin is dark, try fuchsias and plums. If it's medium, opt for rose and mauve tones. And if it's fair, pick soft pinks and corals.

Brush it on. Instead of using your fingers, tap on cream blush with a clean foundation brush. Smile and blend it upward, starting at the apples.

Shift into neutral. Use earth tones on the rest of your face so that the focus is on your cheeks. For eyes, swipe on a shimmery hue that's one shade darker than your natural lid color.

The Fix: "With these easy changes, my makeup now matches where I am in my professional life."
