For blushes try anything in the orange colour family or bright pinks. MAC has Devil and Azalea. If just want a glow to the cheeks there is MAC's Format  and Sweet as Coco. Also check out Nars' Taj Mahal blush and Make Up for Ever's #48 (iridescent orange) and #58 (dark rasberry).
For contouring you would need a brown black colour. HTH

Hi Barbie,

I'm about your color as well, and while I know you were looking for brown blushes, I just have to throw in a recommendation for MAC blush in Fever!

I'm an NW45 and i swear blunt does not show on me at all! I'm going to go try the Ben Nye's Contour powders, i've heard good things about them. @ OP if i were your skintone, you might not want to contour and just focus on highlighting instead.

The same thing with me, I get so confused when darker WOC say they use Blunt as a contour blush.  I use MAC shape and sculpt in Warm Light Definitive .  I wish MAC would come out with it again, I'm running low.

I know, this dont work on me either. Unless I dont know what I am doing... LOL LOLLOLLOL
 
Plum colors show up best on me when I am trying to contour.  Also if you want you can invest in another foundation, darker than you and use that to contour. MUA have done that to me and it works.
