  3. eltscott

    Skin: Fair, neutral (or about NC 15 in MAC)
    Favorite Blush/Highlighter combo: I have recently discovered (and fallen in love with) MAC’s creme colored base in Improper Copper. You would think it wouldn’t look good on someone so fair, but this gives me the perfect sunkissed glow. I don’t like how it looks when paired with a pink blush, but it looks awesome when paired with a coral or peach blush. I use it with MAC Immortal Flower often. 
    Favorite Lipstick/Gloss combo: Lately I’ve been loving putting a clear gloss over Lancome’s Rouge in Love lipcolor in Roses in Love. 
    Favorite Eyeshadow combo: An oldie, but a goodie–>Wet n Wild’s Walking on Eggshells. It’s perfect for a quick, no brainer, day time eye. For a darker, cooler look, I love pairing MAC’s Satin Taupe with MAC Scene (and lots of black eyeliner and mascara!) to create a smokey eye.

  4. My skintone is a neutral NC15. I love Armani’s powder blush in #10 with Armani Fluid Sheer in #2 to highlight. I like Guerlain Rouge G in 07 (Gaby) on lips with Armani’s orangy gloss in 402 on top.  It makes my lips feel fantastic.  For eyeshadow, I like to use Dior’s Stylish Move quad, all the colors.

  5. Mariella

    Skin tone/colouring: Fair, cool (Mac NW20)
    Favourite blush/highlighter combo: Tarte Natural Beauty blush with Benefit Watts Up highlighter touched very lightly to my cheekbones and blended with a finger or TheBalm Mary Lou Manizer with MAC’s 130 brush
    Lips: MAC Plumful or Craving and I tend NOT to wear lipgloss (I just don’t like the feel on top of lipstick)
    Favourite eyeshadow combo: big surprise – neutrals! Naked Lunch or similar on inner third; brown shade from Illusionary/Burning Ambition on outer lid/in crease and under lower lashes. Something matte to highlight. I’ve also been enjoying the Maybelline Caffeine Rush palette this week, used pretty routinely (light inner corner, dark outer corner and avoid the chunky glitter colour entirely!)

  6. Aveirah

    1) fair/pale/ghostly white with yellow undertone
    2) NYX blush Chocolate Moose + NYX mosaic powder Highlighter
    3) Elf mineral lipstick Rosy Raisin + Elf liquid lipstick Cherry Tart (just in the middle)
    4) Inglot 351 & 395

  7. flahertya7

    Skin tone: Fair/porcelain
    Blush/highlighter: Benefit Hervana and MAC cream color base in Shell
    Lipstick/lipgloss combo: MAC creme cup and NYX megashine lipgloss in Sweetheart
    Eyeshadow Combo: UD shadow stick in Sin as a base, UD Toasted on top, UD Buck in crease

  8. Lauren13

    Skin Tone:  Medium or Light Medium (NC30)
    Blush/highlighter:  For my highlight I love the “light” color in the Smashbox ” cream blush trio (“In Lights” version from the Be Discovered collection).  My favorite blush varies… my favorites are the lighter pink Smashbox cream blush from the cream blush duo (It was LE), Clinique powder blush in New Clover, and Smashbox Gingersnap when I want a more dramatic look.  I have a lot of blush.
    Lipstick/Lipgloss:  My favorite gloss is Buxom Isabella (discontinued).  Too Faced Glamour Gloss in Dare Me is almost exactly the same (minus the tingle).  My favorite lipstick is probably the Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick in Chai.   My number one favorite lip product at the moment is Clinique Chubby Stick in Whole Lotta Honey.  It’s a balm, so it’s not really part of the poll.  
    Eyeshadow combo:  Urban Decay Sidecar on the lid with Smog in the crease.  Add Naked to soften the lines and a touch of Virgin as a highlight.

  9. Scarlettheweary

    Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with pink undertones; NC15
    Favorite blush/highlighter combo? Recently it’s been NARS Super Orgasm blush with just a litle highlight of Femme Couture’s Mineral Effects Baked Bronzer in Summer Kiss (This is a dupe for MAC’s Mineralize Skin Finish) (Available at Sally’s Beauty Supply). This is more of a highlighter than a bronzer, I think.
    Favorite lipstick/gloss combo? Recently it’s been MAC’s Sail La Vie Lipstick with a light coat of Revlon’s Colorburst Lip Gloss in Peony.
    Favorite eyeshadow combo? I’ve been using Loreal’s Infallible eyeshadow in Liquid Diamond with everything recently…even as an eyeliner!

  10. KarlaW07

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light-Medium/Olive
    Favorite blush/highlighter combo? Mac MSF Earthshine as of right now.
    Favorite lipstick/gloss combo? Mac Vegas Volt, Revlon Papaya lipgloss, because it’s not as sticky as a lipglass.
    Favorite eyeshadow combo? Wet and Wild Greed pallet. I use the nude matte shade, and the orange coral color in the crease.  It’s super soft, and I love coral :)

    • MeMe23

       @diamond_8806 Ohhh…I love my Comfort Zone palette!!! It is one of the best neutral eye shadow palettes. I’ve heard great things about La Femme blushes…have to try some one day. 

      • diamond_8806

        @MeMe23 You definitely should! I own two of their Palette Labs (12 pan and 4 pan), and they are all I use as far as blush is concerned now. The palettes are convenient because they allow me to view all my options when applying my makeup so I don’t always reach for the same colors. Plus they are excellent for storage purposes as well. The blushes themselves are amazing: highly pigmented, easily blendable, long, wearing, and extremely affordable! I own high-end, more expensive blushes that I no longer reach for, so I think it’s safe to say I’ve found my holy grail blushes! Try them…I’m sure you’ll love them! =)
