Of course you don’t have to limit yourself to these items.  You could use a highlighting powder on your cheek, your eyes, or put it directly on the center of your lips (& then blot) for an ombre lip!  Or use an eyeshadow as highlighter, or even add lip gloss to your eyelids!  And why not fully utilize your makeup?
