Well, there are many different colors of flesh, but I am going to assume you mean flesh of a white person?

If so, I have used ivory, or a little brown, and once I even had to use just a little orange cause it was all I had.

Hopefully, you can play with it and get the color you are looking for. Just remember it doesn't take much color at all.

A little bit of copper works pretty well too.

Use any of the colors sugge4st but......it take just the tiniest bit of color. Don't overdo it. You can always add more color but it's hard to take away color w/o ending up w/tons of icing you don't need.

I use a teeny bit of both rose and orange, perfect!
