Embellishment does not only go through coloring but can be accompanied by various optical effects that help to give either a matte finish or illumination of the complexion or the camouflage of imperfections, fine lines and wrinkles, the blurring of facial contours or even the uniformity of the skin texture: peach skin appearance.
