  5. Wilcoa

    Favorite neutral highlighter?: MAC Vanilla Pigment
    Easiest neutral look?: MAC all that glitters and woodwinked with some black liner and mascara (more warm golden, but on me it’s very basic and classic)
    Best nude lip?: MAC Hug Me is my YLBB

  6. Redhead (hi)

    Favorite neutral highlighter?: MAC Shroom!

    Easiest neutral look?: Lipstain, smoky liner, mascara, a bit of blush. If we’re talking about SUPER easy, the naked face is the most neutral AND it’s pretty darn easy as far as I’m concerned 😉

    Best nude lip?: Revlon Matte lipstick in Nude Attitude. It has a bit of peachyness so I don’t have concealer lips. I prefer some color to my lips when I sport dramatic makeup, though, so I wear Cherry Chapstick on my pigmented lips. It’s a really soft, plummy pink on me. 😀

  7. Lily

    Favourite neutral highlight: Blanc Type. It’s beautiful to work with, the same colour as my skintone and balances my eye look if I have a lot of shimmer going on.

    Easiest neutral look: Blanc type from lashline to brow, Soft Brown in the crease, eyeliner, mascara, Pink Swoon on the cheeks and Nymphette lipglass.

    Best nude lip: Marquise D’ from BBR. The peach tones in it stop me from looking dead.

  8. Sandy

    Favorite neutral highlighter?: Blanc Type, Solar White
    Easiest neutral look?: mascara, Vanilla on lid and Cork in the crease
    Best nude lip?: YSL Rouge Volupté #1 and MAC Blankety

  9. Amy

    Favourite Neutral Highlighter: tied between MAC Shroom and NYX Nude. For face highlight is MAC Golden Nectar

  11. Michelle

    Favorite neutral highlighter — Blanc Type, Vanilla
    Easiest neutral look — Bisque on lid, Blanc Type as highlight, Folie through crease/ blending to outer V. Add black liquid liner to top lashes. Black Mascara. Blushbaby blush, nude gloss.

  12. claudia

    Favorite neutral highlighter — vanilla e/s
    Easiest neutral look — bisque on lid, quarry on crease and blended, vanilla as highlight, black eyeliner and mascara. On a Mission blush. Goes with any lipstick.
    Best nude lip: Blankety is my fave but High tea is OK too, specially with a more dark, smokey eye.

  13. Michaela

    Neutral highlight: Lancome matte e/s in Daylight (I think that mattes are just about the only highlighters that work for a totally natural look, but I’m an NW15, and Daylight would probably look ashy on someone with a deeper skintone)

    -Neutral look: A soft gold all over the lid with a neutral grey lightly applied in the crease. A matte or slightly shimmery off-white as a highlight on the browbone and the inner corner. SUPER thin black or navy blue liner just on the upper lashline. Finally, a couple coats of mascara and a swipe of tinted lip balm.

    -Best nude lip: Mac Myth for when I’m feeling dramatic, Mac Modesty applied very sheer when I need a bit more substance.
