I do face setting by hand, outside the customize section:

      (set-face-foreground 'font-lock-function-name-face "firebrick")
      (set-face-foreground 'font-lock-comment-face "red")
      (make-face-bold 'font-lock-comment-face)
      (set-face-foreground 'font-lock-string-face "mediumseagreen")
      (set-face-foreground 'font-lock-variable-name-face "darkgoldenrod")
