    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? 0 on average. Blush is something I only use occasionally. Highlighter on the other hand I use two different ones in a week on average.

    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 2-3

    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? Well if this were fall/winter/spring then I’d say 6-8 different eyeshadows a week on average. But I don’t wear as much eyeshadow in summer so on average I’d have to say zero or one actually.

    Your skin tone/coloring: Fair (Porcelain)

    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)?: In an effort to use up what I have, I usually pick one blush and stick to it for a week (This week it’s Milani’s limited edition Coming Up Roses blush in Bella Rosa)

    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)?: Same as with blush, I try to pick one lipstick or gloss and use for a week, unless it clashes with my outfit or I have a special event, so anywhere between 1-3 (This week it’s NYX Megashine Lipgloss in Salsa)

    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)?: I really only wear eyeshadow on weekends, but probably somewhere between 4-8 depending on the look

    Skin tone: Medium/Light, Yellow/Neutral undertones
    Average blushes used in a week: 2-3 (Usually one of: Milani Rose D’Oro, theBalm Fratboy, theBalm Hot Mama, MAC Ripe for Love…)
    Lipsticks: 4-6. I firmly believe that if I have this many lipsticks, I can have the luxury of picking EXACTLY the right one for each outfit, haha!
    Eyeshadow: 2-4 (Usually a base, a medium brown, and a darker brown crease)

    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? Probably 2 at most. I only own 7 blushes in total and I use Tarte Exposed 95% of the time :).

    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? I’d have to say none. I rarely wear lipstick, I gravitate towards glosses and lip balms.

    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? That’s a tough one. I rarely wear the same eye look twice in a row, I cycle through A LOT of my palettes during a week and I wear eye makeup almost every day of the week, so I couldn’t possibly say a number off the top of my head.

  16. Your skin tone/coloring: medium warm
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? One or two
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Hmm, depends, sometimes one all week long and sometimes a different one every day :-)

    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? maybe about 5
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 6-7
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? 4-5
    I have been trying to change up my makeup almost everyday, but then there are times when I could use the same blush everyday for a month haha.

  18. Your skin tone/coloring: light to light-medium with yellow undertones (ex. Nars Fiji)
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? I use a different one every day! I’m a blush addict.
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Maybe 2, maximum. Trying to get more into wearing lipstick on the daily.
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? In summer, maybe ~2. During winter, likely 5-6. I tend to skip applying eyeshadow more in the summer for a no-fuss look.

    Your skin tone/coloring: MAC Studio Sculpt: NW43, MAC Face & Body: A mix of N7 & C7.

    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? 1-3. Mac Format (as bronzer), MAC Gold trace (highlight), Mac Love joy (blusher).

    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Depends on my mood. I LOVE lipstick!

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light – NW20
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? 1 or 2. I use one blush for about a week and then switch to another the next
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 1 or 2. I switch it up on a weekly basis like with the blush.
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? 8. Here is where I play around. I use all of the 8 shadows I own on a weekly basis. 2-4 on average daily.

  22. Your skin tone/coloring: Beige with a Yellow Undertone
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? About 3-4
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 2
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)?
    Usually about 10.

  23. Carol

    Your skin tone/coloring: Very Pale with pink undertones
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? 3-6
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 5
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? I would say about 25-30, I use at least four for each eye look and I try not to do similar eye looks too often.

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Medium Neutral. MAC N3, YSL Beige 30 as of current self tanning
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? It really depends how much time I have that week. I could use up to 7, a different one for each day, or one every single day.
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Again, it depends. If I’m not doing anything except working, it’s one of the few in my purse. If I’m doing something where I want to wear a more “interesting” lip, then that’s another one added to the list.
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? Oh jeez, well again at least three a day (lid, crease, highlight), so it depends on how many different looks I do that week.

  25. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    Your skin tone/coloring: NW10 winter, NW/C15 summer. (I generally get away with Bobbi Brown Porcelain year round if I keep it sheer enough.)
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? 2-3; Bobbi Brown Nude Pink and e.l.f. Pink Passion get a lot of face time.
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Depends on what kind of timetable I’m working with that week, but on average, I’ll go through 6-10 shades in one week. I sometimes pull 16-18 hour days, so it’s possible for me to go through two different lip colors in one day. Even on lazy days, I’ll throw on a nude lipstick or tinted balm. Lip color may or may not be my makeup weakness. :3
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? Upwards of twenty. I work those neutral palettes to the pan. :P I have a few colorful singles laying around that get their use, just not quite as often as the neutrals.

    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Again, about 4-5
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? Probably 20-25. I try to mix things up so that I have different looks to post on my blog. Before blogging I was guilty of using the same eyeshadow palette (Naked 2) over and over again.

    Your skin tone/coloring: NC25 winter/NC30 summer
    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? I own 7 blushes & I use a different one daily
    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? 7 – never wear the same one twice in a week.
    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? I would say around 7 9

  29. Your skin tone/coloring: NC30-35 (medium with warm undertones). I’m kind of confused now, though, because I have a friend who has a much darker complexion than mine and she says she’s NC35-40, but more often NC35. I’m currently using MAC Studio Fix Powder + Foundation in NC35 (which appears to be a perfect match for my skin tone) and MAC Studio Fix Select Sheer Pressed in NC30 (which oddly appears darker than my natural skin tone). TBH, I actually thought NC35 might be too light at first (for the Studio Fix) because my last compact was NC40.. so weird. :/

    How many blushes do you use in a week (on average)? Around 2-3.

    How many lipsticks do you use in a week (on average)? Around 4-6.

    How many eyeshadows do you use in a week (on average)? None. Not really an eyeshadow person (because I honestly don’t know how to put it on properly yet), but I’m planning to learn as soon as I find the time (I bought “learning materials” already, though.. exciting!). :D

  39. Avatar of Melissa Melissa C

    My skin tone – NC 20
    I use about 3 blushes a week – but I try to use just one for the entire week – I have way too many blushes!
    I use 1-2 lipsticks a week – I pick a combo and stick with it – plus for work I keep it basic. On the weekends I either use tinted lipbalm or bright lipstick at night.
    I use untold amounts of eyeshadow – I pick and choose from palettes – but in the end I stick with the same neutral colors – so I guess I only need 1 palette!
