  17. Katie

    Your skin tone/coloring: Neutral/Beige
    Favorite eyeshadow finish? Umm…Satin or Metallic. I’m wearing metallics while I can since they emphasize wrinkles in older age.
    Favorite blush finish? I love love love the MAC # 168 brush!
    Favorite foundation finish? I used to really love mattes, but my skin is becoming more dry as I hit my mid-twenties. I now prefer more dewy finishes, which seem to give slight dimension to my face.

  18. Your skin tone/coloring: Fair and cool toned (MAC NW 15-20)
    Favorite eyeshadow finish? MAC Veluxe Pearl or Inglot Pearl finish
    Favorite blush finish? Sheertone Shimmer (MAC) or the finish of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blushes – they have the most beautiful sheen. I also have a MAC Mineralized blush in a shade that isn’t great for me but it also takes on the most flattering glowing sheen when buffed in; I need to see if other mineralized blushes from MAC do this
    Favorite foundation finish? Not totally matte but not a ton of shine either. I like Guerlain Lingerie de Peau and Clarins Skin Illusion finishes as they’re not totally flat but I don’t look too oily or glowy.
