Trying to overwrite defined CSS styles in a content management system

Hi there - I’ve been experiencing some issues lately when it comes to writing CSS for Content Management Systems that already have styles defined. Let’s say the CMS has font 24px and green and I want to change it to 16px and blue.

Usually, I use firebug to try to find the naming convention used to define the style, but it doesn’t always work. Sometimes I will change the styles code, but the CMS doesn’t always reflect the change. It is almost as if there is a higher level of code that is overwriting the changes I am trying to make. Has anyone else experienced this before or can explain to me what I need to be doing to overwrite all the code? Thank you in advance!
