ahhhh i usually stick to one colour as a base, like i used a very light orangey-pink. Then i usually use colours that work as main colours and have maybe one accent colour. Like, my base colours are variants of pinks while i have yellows/golds (highlights and i added some yellow but changed the opacity so you cant tell its pure yellow) and a dark blue (the outline of the eyes). I also kind of just shade using anything but black, NEVER shade with black, and dont only shade with white. White can be a pretty colour to use but i like to use it very mnimally like maybe an eye shine. Coloured highlights tend to have a softer look, and since i like the soft pastel ish i usually go with hings like that. I also use coloured shadows, so i would use a purple instead of a black for shading and just lower the opacity so that it matches up with every colour instead of having to change the colour of the shadow every time. I do a mix of cell shading and soft shading too, so i use olid colours to shade and add some light blended colours in a layer over them. I also use textured brushes that have lots of little dots to add texture, you can probably see if you look super close that there are kind of grain-like textures in the hair, idk why but it just makes it look pretty. I use blending as a contour to add definition sometimes instead of having the contour be all lines, like for the eyelids i added a bit of depth/ made the eyelids look less flat by adding an area of solid colour and blending it outward. Most artists usually have a colour palette picked out before hand (and you probably should???) but i never do tat because all of my ides are just on the spot. Colour really just depends on the type of piece you have/are making, your style, and colours you like. I hate working with dark colours because tbh i dont like them as main colours very much, but it is always good to get out of your comfort zone, so never be afraid to try some new colouring styles. 
Im like just remembering these other things now lmao:
♥ Some colours may look muddy or gross when shading, like ith yellow if you get darker it kinda starts to look like a gross dead brown, try using oranges or reds instead. 
♥ sometimes if i have a lot of different colours, i use a dark, saturated purple as a universal shade colour. It just kinda works lol.
♥ when choosing an accent colour, try to pick a colour that is most complimentary for a colour pop, or for stick in the general colour area for a more subtle change in hue. Ex:
        -A complimentary colour of a light orangey-pink would be a cyan-blue-purple. I would use the blue for the eyes or hair as an accent and the pink as a main, you can also switch it around and have blue as the base and maybe the pinks s the eye or hair tones, the lightness/darkness and hue/saturation/contrast of the accent would all depend on what your base is or vise versa.
♥ when in doubt just go with ur gut (if you know ur kinda okay w/ chosing colours to use)
♥ sometimes the nicest colours are those from real life. I like to find stock images of flowers or pretty settings online and compile them all together and pick out certain colours from each photo. I like to limit myself to maybe one or two colours per photo, then i set them all down on the canvas and change them around/mix different colours in (mixing would only really apply for traditional tho)
♥ If you are drawing digitally and your program of choice has it, you can use the hue slider to change thngs around or add contrast or whatever. I dont do this much anymore but it does work.
♥ Always check your darks and your lights. If you know how to in your program (again for digital, most of this is for digital anyway because im assuming you want digital) set your canvas to greyscale (all the colours become types of blacks, greys, and whites). If your picture's lights and darks are very very close (maybe almost the same colour), you might want to change it a bit, making certain shadows darker and highlights lighter. Then again, this all depends on your style and colours you use, this isnt always the case for every palette.

I think thats it?! Idk if you need help w/ anything else just ask, im probably going to compile this and if u ask anything else in a journal so :iconicebergcabbage: stops saying im good at colouring and ish because its p clear i have 0 idea wat im saying lmao.
also if there's spelling mistakes im typing really fast and my laptop keyboard sux.
