    I only have seasonal lip colours. More pinks in the spring/summer and more reds in the fall/winter!

    Skin: Very light; extremely neutral.

    My “look” doesn’t change with the seasons, but then, we don’t have “season” here in Southern California… We get hot or cold. That said, the only thing that changes is how *much* I wear. Obviously, if it’s really hot, I’ll wear less, and in cooler weather I’m more comfortable wearing more. Also, my wardrobe colors don’t change, only textures; I tend to match the “weight” of my makeup to the “feel” of my clothing. I go to extremes with preventing tans, so my foundation pretty much carries me year-round. I’ve also never been a fan of pastels, either with my coloring, or personal aesthetic, so the more “traditional” Spring shades are a big skip for me, anyway.

      I am NC50 and love the MAC Hibiscus (LE) lipstick or even the Cyndi Lauper Viva Glam Lipglass also LE. I bought several back-ups on ebay this past summer. I like Peachstock (I think) or Amber Rose from MAC for coral blushes.

    Spring look? For the spring I keep it fresh. I rarely wear foundation. Just sunblock. Nude eyeliner, mascara, Gina blush, their real mascara, plw concealer under the eyes and then I usually highlight and contour lightly. Highlighting is what I do the most to Brighten my look. I also smudge eyeshadow of choice on the upper lash line. ;) depends really. Any coral lipstick with Turkish delight. – looks A lot like flamingo!

    Favorite spring lipstick? Revlon Lip Butter in Strawberry Shortcake and any of my multiple fuschias.
    Favorite spring blush? Bobbi Brown Nude Pink
    Go-to spring look? I actually don’t change my makeup too much between seasons – I’m generally a neutral eye/cat eye with a bold lip kind of girl. I just tend to do rich reds and burgundies more in winter, while in spring I use more hot pinks, fuschias, and lighter reds. Pinks and nude tones are for lazy makeup days only. ;)

    I have very fair skin with bluish/pinkish undertones. My favorite spring lipstick is Gotta Dash Sheen Supreme lpstick by MAC. I love really nautral makeup for the spring. No eye makeup, barely any mascara, only a light dusting of finishing powder, BB cream, cream blush, and my Gotta Dash. I think come spring time, I’ll be using the new cream blush from Flower Cosmetics in Peach Blossom.
