    my skintone is medium to medium dark now in the summer and I have to say I am very happy because I haven’t found a colour so far that does not feel right on me…apart from some extremely pale lipsticks which would seem totally odd on me, so I haven’t even bothered trying them…generally speaking, I can rock all colours, on eyes, cheeks or lips…! yea!!!! and mind you, I am far from colour shy…!!!

  3. My skin is very, very fair
    The one color I do not like seeing on my lips is brown, unless it’s really dark
    The least flattering eyeshadow has to be blue, since my eyes are blue, it’s just messy
    And the least flaterring blush has to be a brownish peach one, it has to be golden and light :)

    Least flattering lipstick: Any really cool based, light pink shades are the least flattering. Those, and really milky almost white nudes. I can’t do too many brown based shades, either.
     
    Least flattering eye shadow: Light pinks, blues, and too much gray doesn’t look good on me.

    • Miss J

       @xamyx Hey, Amy, OT…They released some of GZ’s jail phone calls from before his first bond hearing. He is talking to his wife about how he will conceal himself when he gets out of jail on bond in one; she tells him he could always lay down in the vehicle, and then he makes the comment, “Well, I’ve got my hoodie.” Both of them chuckle at that comment like it’s cute and funny when it’s just plain sick to make a comment like that. The guy in TX who killed his 5 year old daughter’s attacker/rapist shows more remorse than GZ!

  13. Avatar of Laurel lanew22

    Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair, neutral, dark eyes and dark brown hair, very pigmented lips
     
    Least flattering lipstick on you? Since my lips are very pigmented, nude and light colors look stupid and it’s very difficult to “nude out” my lips completely even with foundation or concealer. Very dark colors look gothic on me too
     
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? Red/midtone pink/dark pink
     
    Least flattering blush on you? Oranges that are like crayola orange

  14. Avatar of tzwiggy t_zwiggy

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium (NW20-25)
     
    Least flattering lipstick on you? Corals and peachy shades. MAC Jazzed is probably the worst I’ve tried. And that awful crazy bright coral from Venomous Villains (don’t remember the name)
     
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? MAC Woodwinked! Warm and yellow toned browns in general. Antique golds, corals and teals don’t look right on me either.
     
    Least flattering blush on you? I feel like I can pull off most blushes, but I have to work a bit harder with light peaches and so-called natural blushes that is a mixture of pink and brown.

  15. Avatar of Veronica Veronica

    Your skin tone/coloring:  Fair with cool undertones
    Least flattering lipstick on you?  Dark browns and orange-toned colors.
    Least flattering eyeshadow?   I have to be careful with warm colors over all, but reddish purples and burgundies in particular make me look bruised.
    Least flattering blush on you?  Bold reds or strongly orange corals.

  16. I’ve got yellow undertones and am very fair in my face where there aren’t freckles, but my freckles are subtle so they almost seem like a darker skin tone.  I’ve got blue-grey eyes with a dark iris ring and dark auburn hair.
     
    Least flattering lipsticks and blushes are anything coral.  It’s the only color family I can’t pull off anywhere on my body no matter what clothes, contacts, hair color, etc. I have on.  
     
    Least flattering eye-shadow is a light blue.  Too much like my undertones and eyes and leaves me looking sickly and bruised.

  17. Avatar of Lissa LissaOliva

    Your skin tone/coloring: medium/neutral
    Least flattering lipstick on you? brown based colors
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? anything too ashy or pastel
    Least flattering blush on you? lavender colors

  18. Lisa

    Your skin tone/coloring: light medium olive
    Least flattering lipstick on you? Beige (they make me look like I put concealer on my lips); and cool toned pinks, especially light ones
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? Anything really light and cool toned, silver and light blue look especially gaudy.
    Least flattering blush on you? Again I think anything too cool toned as it can tend to look chalky against my skin.

  19. Avatar of Raquel greensocksrocks

    Your skin tone/coloring: light medium/ medium
    Least flattering lipstick on you? browns and gold colors
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? orange-brick colors and reds
    Least flattering blush on you? havent tried many blush color range, so i dont have one to say..
     

  20. Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral/ slightly cool undertones
    Least flattering lipstick on you? Shades of brown that have no pink/ plum undertone to them- they draw all the colour right out of my face.
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? Blue. It washes out my eyes (light blue) and can emphasise my under-eye circles
    Least flattering blush on you? Bronzers or warm brown tones. They look like my face got dirty!

    • Avatar of Chelsea Chelsea

       @Kate MacDonald  agreed on bronzers and brown blush.  With my fair skin and freckles, I look like Pigpen.

  21. Your skin tone/coloring: Olive Fair (paler then MAC NC15)
     
    Least flattering lipstick on you:browns and flesh tone nudes.
     
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you: purples in particular dark red tone purples tend to look like my eye are bruised. I’m game for just about anything being so fair it’s like painting on paper. lol
     
    Least flattering blush on you: brown anything and violates (the purple look clownish one me rather then flattering.)

  26. vennnii

    Skin: NC 20-25 lipstick:
    lipstick: something nude or very pale looks horrible on me.
    eyeshadow: blues look awful on me
    blush: deep orange or reds.. i’d probably look like i got punched

  27. Avatar of aykhan akhan

    Your skin tone/coloring: olive medium
     
    Least flattering lipstick on you: beige and light pinks make me look jaundiced and blotchy, dark browns make me look sallow
     
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you: reds, oranges, light blues
     
    Least flattering blush on you: any blush where brown dominates tends to look muddy on me, reds can be a bit tricky too 

  28. Skin tone: fair with pink undertones
    Lipstick: Shimmery nudes and very light pinks. Hate ‘em! 
    Eyeshadow: Well, I haven’t bought a lot of eyeshadows that would look bad on me (can’t imagine why!), but I’d imagine yellow eyeshadow would just look…horrible. Also, I’m really not a fan of blue eyeshadow, even though I have blue eyes.
    Blush: Anything that has brown in it.

  29. NeenaJ

    Your skin tone/coloring: Fair to light with pink undertones and beige freckles. Hazel eyes, brown hair. Lips are pinkish-mauve.
    Least flattering lipstick on you?  Cool light to medium pinks – the worst! My lips emphasize the pink in any lipstick which does not work with my skintone at all.
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? Pinks again – they make me look sick. Also reddish-purples are not my friend, leaving me looking bruised with ghastly undereye circles.
    Least flattering blush on you?  Brick reds and plums – avoid at all cost.

    Least flattering lipstick on you? Nudes, browns, anything purpley.
     
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you?  I don’t really like wearing anything not neutral or gold/copper/bronze, but plums have a tendency to make me look like I got punched in the face.
     
    Least flattering blush on you?  Browns, they look muddy with my freckles.

  53. Adelita

    • Your skin tone/coloring:
    » Medium dark/tan, NC42-43, golden olive with caramel undertones.
     
    • Least flattering lipstick on you?
    » Any colors that’s gravitate toward orange/yellow/warm tones. I have strong yellow undertones, lipstick like M·A·C Morange just makes me look more jaundiced.
     
    • Least flattering eyeshadow on you?
    » Any pastel (especially baby blue) colors. My right eye is a little bit monolid (because my left eye is a teeny bit larger than my right eye) and due to my darker complexion, any light colored eyeshadow will make my eyes look puffy.
     
    • Least flattering blush on you?
    » Pale, baby pink blush. Something like Benefit Dandelion and the like, those looks chalky & pasty on me. Yuck!
     
     

  54. Avatar of Mariella Mariella

    Skin tone/colouring: fair with pink undertones (cool)
    Least flattering lipstick on you: nudes (unless I really want to look dead!); I’d wear coral before I’d wear a nude lip and coral’s not great on my either
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you: anything too red toned or with orange undertones
    Least flattering blush on you: again, anything orange or very coral

  55. MilicaPopovic

    Least flattering blush on you? i haven’t found any blush which doesn’t really flatter me. 

  56. Your skin tone/coloring: NC25 (warm undertone)
    Least flattering lipstick on you? Reds, I still haven’t found my perfect one and also the majority of nude lipsticks.
    Least flattering eyeshadow on you? probably greys.
    Least flattering blush on you? Hm haven’t really found one but I usually tend to go for pinks and peaches!

  57. Avatar of Joanne JoanneD

    Skin Tone: Medium/Tan with olive undertones (MAC NC 43-44, Nars Tahoe)
    Least flattering lipstick: Orange toned lipsticks look terrible because they bring out the olive in my skin
    Least flattering eyeshadow: Red (I don’t think it looks good on anyone, actually)
    Least flattering blush: Hands down, orange. It looks like the life has been sucked out of me. I really would love to wear it since its the color of the season but I just can’t make it work.

  58. Jessica

    Skin tone: Rev. Colorstay Oily/Combo in 400 Caramel (medium brown with lots of yellow in my skin)/ NW40
    Least flattering lip: anything really light (beiges with peach undertones, whitish pinks)–don’t what to look like my lips are ashy!
    Least flattering eyeshadow: none, I guess ones that might not show up(?)
    Least flattering blush: none really, but I had problems with MAC Cubic (didn’t show up)

  59. Michelle

  60. Leeza

    Skin tone/coloring: gold tan (NC35ish)
    Least flattering lip color: I haven’t found something truly hideous YET but I’m pretty sure any bright yellow pink would look terrifying.
    Least flattering eyeshadow: definitely pink, UNLESS it’s just an accent to a blue/purple look
    Least flattering blush: light blue links or anything remotely purple.

  61. Avatar of Michelle michou83

    Skin tone: Really pale now (stopped tanning years ago) but with yellow undertones.
    Least flattering lip: ANYTHING metallic or frosty.  Light pinks are also awful on me.
    Least flattering eyeshadow: Silver (but I can pull off some gray tones)
    Least flattering blush: Purple toned or overly shimmery.  Mauves aren’t great on me either.

  62. Kastehelmi

    Skin tone: Neutral, dark tan/cafe au lait. L’Oreal Truematch in N6 Honey Beige matches. Never tried any MAC, but I guess I’m NC42?  
     
    Least flattering lip: pale pink or beige, of course
     
    Least flattering eyeshadow: chalky pastels–colors like powdery baby blue or pale yellow make me look scary!
    Least flattering blush: pale pink or peach don’t show up on me–it’s safe to say lighter colors that don’t define make me look awful whether they’re on my eyes, cheeks or lips.

  63. jeanthony

    Your skin tone/coloring: Usually hovering around an NC35Least flattering lipstick on you? Anything that’s really blue toned, except for reds. Somehow I can pull off bluey reds. Also, anything paler than my natural lip color usually looks pretty terrible, regardless of the tone.Least flattering eyeshadow on you? The worst offender is usually a color that isn’t blue, and isn’t green, but is somewhere overlapping the two. Looks terrible on my skin tone, and it makes my dark circles stand out, making me look ill.
    Least flattering blush on you? Anything too light, and really blue toned vivid pinks look pretty awful.

  64. Fajer

    1-Skin tone: tanned with yellowlolive undertones (NC42/43)
