While painting the flesh tones on some 1/35 minis, I put on the base coat first, then a darker wash, then when I was starting to lightly drybrush the highlights, I brushed from center forehead to the side jaws/ears (like so /_\ ), and under the chin (the nose also gets highlighted.) In effect, The only part I don't try to hit is the lips, which the wash brings out.
Seems to work pretty well. :-)
