I try to wear a variety of colors, too, but it’s easy to get stuck in a routine. Especially when you find a product you really really like. For example right now I’m loving the Naked palette and have been doing a ton of neutral looks. I need to bring some color into my life again!

Variety! Variety! Variety! I don’t let myself use the same shades/palettes more than once a week. I keep buying and buying but never adequately use anything!

But when I’m feeling uninspired, it’s my Wet n Wild Night Elf palette it is–antique goldish taupe on the lid with the burgundy green duochrome in the crease. Physician’s Formula Happy Booster blush in Natural with whatever lipgloss I’m feeling!

I basically stick with my same neutrals. They may be a shade darker or brighter but that’s about it. My job and life prohibits me from going too crazy with color. Boring, I know but I love what I do. My performance should stand out, not my makeup.

I gravitate towards browns, purples and greys for eyes and soft pinks for lips. Luckily I have a lot of makeup so even though I mostly wear only those colours I have a lot of variety of products that fit that description. Apart from a few staples I try not to wear the same products more than once in a week.

Well since I’m in school to become a chef, I cannot wear any makeup other than face powder and the like for school. But other than that, I tend to create the same copper & bronze eye look everyday. I have thousands of dollars worth of products and I barely use things more than a handful of times. It’s so bad… The coveted Alice & Wonderland palette by UD has only been used once. All this product is just build up in the bathroom. Does anyone else just buy things because they feel the need to have them? For no reason other than “I don’t have this one”?

i try to wear a variety of colors especially since i have a blog and like to do “Look of the Day,” but on days when I don’t want to stand out (at school), i lean toward more neutral shadows or just stick with black eyeliner and maybe a stand-out lip instead. i have tried just about every color of shadow under the sun except for RED. 🙂

Monday to Friday i use to go on neutral colors, soft pinks,beiges, browns, black…
But at weekends i put some colors! I love blue, green, yellow purple and oranges!
Depends a lot where i go, and my husband mood XD

I love combining colors, colors are my fav visual tools so I don’t stop at corals and browns. I always try to find fun and unusual but matching color combinations with my outfit.

I love playing with new colour combos! But if I’m in a rush or going somewhere special, I’ll go back to a look I know works. Right now my go-to look is a blend of the brown and pink matte neutrals in my Tarte treasure chest palette, Korres mango lipstick in Natural Purple, and MAC Cubic blush.

I tend to stick with my Guerlain quad (441 Brun modoré)and my YSL pour shine(16 Bohemia rose), because I really don’t have time to try something new in the morning.
