  19. Avatar of Amy xamyx

    Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

    Lip: I tend to gravitate towards nudes & other soft shades because I tend to go deeper/heavier on the eyes. However, on “lazier” days, I’ll go for something vampy.

    Blush: I haven’t figured it out yet, but I’m thinking NARS Douceur will be one I reach for often. It’s still pretty hot where I am, so I haven’t been wearing full-face looks…

    Eyeshadow palette: UD Black Palette, although I have to pull some lighter shades, and a highlighter, but the jewel-tones are just so pretty. UD Smoked is also pretty good, and has everything but the highlighter.

  20. Your skin tone/coloring: NC05

    Favorite fall blush color: Wet N Wild Mellow Wine
    Favorite fall eye palette: Wet N Wild Comfort Zone palette as well.

    Favorite fall eye palette? I use the same palettes year round: a self-made neutral palette and Wet n Wild’s Comfort Zone.

  22. ■Your skin tone/coloring: C3/NC20.
    ■Favorite fall lip color? Sephora Collection Rouge Cream Lipstick in Courtisane, OCC Lip Tar in Anita and Maybelline Midnight Plum (1005).
    ■Favorite fall blush color? Hmmm, at the moment Sephora Collection Orange Punchy Blush, but I’m really trying to find a perfect neutral, MATTE blush that doesn’t make me look muddy (MAC Harmony, I’m looking at you!) Any suggestions, Christine? :D
    ■Favorite fall eye palette? My own Inglot Palette containing 102R, 421, 423 and 452. Inglot 452 over MAC Constructivist… LOVE!

    In Fall:

    Skin tends toward NC42
    Lipstick: Love MAC Odyssey but it does sting a little. Wish it were more moist as the color is perfect.
    Blush: Toss up between NARS Dolce Vita and Taos
    Eye Palette: I’d still have to say LORAC Pro

  37. Megs

    NW 25 now, will lighten to NW 20 as it cools off

    Lips: MAC Desire or Darkside lipstick, lipglass in Pop Mode, NARS lipgloss in Dolce Vita
    Blush: MAC Fever, NARS Dolce Vita and Sin
    Eyes: self made MAC quad: Seedy Pearl highlight or lid, Haux in crease, Sketch to define or outer v, Cranberry as an accent, I also like Vex on the lid, Club on outer V over black liner

    • Thanks for the “memory jog” – I haven’t used Vex in ages and really should get it out to combine with Club or Inglot 419 or something purple. It is such a beautiful colour and I should use it more often.

  38. Avatar of Quinn Quinn

    Your skin tone/coloring: Yellow undertones/nc15

    nars fire down below

    Favorite fall blush color?
    nars dolce vita

    Favorite fall eye palette?
    naked2 and naked basics. since i do intense lipcolors, especially in fall, i like keeping my eyes neutral.

  40. Your skin tone/coloring: Sephora 2Y06, I think a MAC NC20 – light with yellow undertones

    Is it bad that I don’t really differentiate between summer and fall makeup? Maybe it’s because I live in Southern California. I am going to be dyeing my hair chesnut brown, which I’m pretty excited about, so I’m going to be experimenting with different smoky eyes and trying out my new Sonia Kashuk Spiced Berry and Hourglass Icon lipsticks.

  41. Your skin tone/coloring: NW10-15
    Favorite fall lip color? Illamasqua’s Growl
    Favorite fall blush color? NARS Sex Appeal (I’m quite red and don’t really like wearing a lot of blush)
    Favorite fall eye palette? My own that I put into a z-palette.

  42. Suzanne

    Your skin tone/coloring: Light pale neutral

    Favorite fall lip color? revlons plum velvet

    Favorite fall blush color? rose d oro blush by Milani

    Favorite fall eye palette? Seduction by Chanel

  43. Emmm

    1. Light/pinkish NC20 in MAC
    2. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Venom
    3. MAC Cubic or NARS Sin
    4. My MAC palette or NARS And God Created The Woman palette

  44. breyerchic04

    Light but not porcelain, pink toned
    Plums, Berries, and Chocolate Reds. Currently loving UD Rapture and MAC Sweet Succulence.
    MAC Breath of Plumb sheertone blush, but I pretty much use it and Benefit Coralista all year round
    I don’t have a favorite fall palette yet, but I’m feeling some of the Bobbi Brown holiday ones.

  45. Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium, peachy (NW20-25)

    Favorite fall lip color? I love mauvey pinks for fall! UD Rush (the old formula!), MAC Syrup, Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Boy

    Favorite fall blush color? Muted mauve, burgundy, plum and berry pinks. MAC Plum Foolery, Chanel Fantasia, NARS Sin

    Favorite fall eye palette? I don’t have a lot of eye palettes with what I consider typical fall colors. I think my favorite must be MAC Royal Assets in Warm Eyes (on old LE palette from the 2007 holiday collection, I believe) because two of my favorite fall eyeshadows, Club and Star Violet (both permanent), are in that palette. I honestly believe Star Violet is one of MAC’s most underrated eyeshadows. It’s really wearable (no punched-in-the-eye or cried-all-night look!) and so creamy and smooth. It really is the perfect burgundy eyeshadow for fall!

  46. Avatar of Laura Laura

    Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool-toned (MAC NW15ish), red hair, green eyes.
