    I’m about NW35/NC42, more neutral/pink undertoned than yellow. Black hair and dark eyes.
    Red lipstick, because orange makes me look tan in a bad way.
    Plum blush, because it looks more natural than pink on me.
    Black eyeliner, because it looks better with my black lashes and brows and tan skin than brown which does nothing for me.

  33. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Gina Gina

    Skintone: Medium, warm.

    Red or Orange lipstick? This is hard! I love both. But I guess I’ll say red, as I don’t often find a red that looks bad on me, but orange sometimes (though rarely) can.

    Plum or Brown blush? I’ll say brown. It adds a nice hint of color without being too much.

    Brown or black eyeliner? Mostly black, but I do like to use brown for softer looks, since it’s less harsh.

    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner? I actually prefer brown. Lots of browns give the same intensity as black, without being so hard, that said, black on my waterline brings out the blue in my eyes

    Do you prefer plum or brown blush? plum but a reddish plum. Warm.

    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner? I prefer black and that is what I wear a good deal of the time. However, as I have grown older I find that black can look a bit harsh at times during the day so I do use dark brown for some looks now.

  71. lisa

    Your skin tone/coloring: Ivory – matches NARS Finland (lightest tinted moisturizer), neutral leaning warm
    Do you prefer red or orange lipstick? Orange
    Do you prefer plum or brown blush? plum because it is lighter but that is generally too dark and brown is always too dark
    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner? brown, black is far too harsh unless I’m going to a dramatic night out look and even then, I look better with grey eyeliner

  72. Year

    1. Fair, pink undertones. Currently wearing ud’s naked skin .5 but it’s maybe half a shade to a shade too dark, too yellow.

    2. Red definitely.

    3. Plum, although I prefer pink.

    4. Black. I actually don’t even own a brown eyeliner, but I would like one for my “no makeup” makeu days.

    P.S. am on my phone apologies for any typos/reposts :P

    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner? black

    Have to say that I hardly had to think about this week’s questions at all. The winged liner/ dark or red lip look is kind of a signature for me and always has been. And brown blush just looks kind of dirty on my face.

  74. Nina

    Your skin tone/coloring:
    Light-medium with yellow undertones

    Do you prefer red or orange lipstick?
    Red lipstick. Orange lippie makes me yellower (read: jaundiced)

    Do you prefer plum or brown blush?
    Plum blush. Brown looks dirty on me.

    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner?
    Black eyeliner. Then again, I’ve never tried brown…

  75. Raquel

    I have light skin with a very slight yellow undertone, however, my skin can pull orange or pink (in a good way) depending on clothing and makeup choices.
    I like red lipstick more, but orange is fun.
    I like plum blush more, but soft brown blush is my favorite with bold eyes.
    I like black liner the best. Brown liner doesn’t have enough contrast with my brown eyes.

  76. Kate A @persistentfantasy

    Light-medium, warm undertones
    Love a good orangey red! (Chanel Rouge Allure Exotic – my absolute favourite!)
    Neither blush – peach/corals all the way
    Brown eyeliner for every day :)

    skintone fair, pink undertones on face but prefer warm colors
    I don’t particularly like red or orange liipstick, too bright, I like brown toned neutrals.
    Brown blush definitely, as above!
    Brown eyelinger, preferably brown with plummish undertones, brings out the green in my hazel eyes. With red hair and fair skin, I find black mascara too harsh, especially for daytime. It can smear anc give my eyeliner a bluish tint which looks awful on me. I need warm colors around my eyes!

    Your skin tone/coloring: Fair (NW15 ish), cool-toned, red hair, green eyes.

    Do you prefer red or orange lipstick? Red all the way! I don’t actually own any orange lipstick – the closest I have is orangey reds like Scarlet Ibis and Lady Danger. I should probably get an orange lippy just to have in my stash, but I think it would look weird on me.

    Do you prefer plum or brown blush? Plum. MAC Plum Foolery is my favourite.

    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner? Depends on the look, but I wear black more often.

    Skin tone: NC30 with yellow undertones
    Red or orange: red definitely, orange doesn’t suit me well.
    Plum or brown: plum blush.
    Black or brown: black always. Like they say, once you go black, you need go back. That saying’s about eyeliner, right?

  87. Medium tan with very subtle yellow undertones, I use Loreal’s true match liquid foundation in Nude Amber

    Bright red lipstick, MAC Ruby Woo & Revlon’s matte Really Red are my holy-grail items

    Usually I go for a pale rose coloured blush & ive never tried plum or brown ones, but if I’d have to pick I’d with brown, I dont like too much colour on my cheeks

    Black eyeliner definitely, MAC fluidline in blacktrack is another holy-grail item for me

  91. Shannen

    - NW15 here.
    – Red lipstick. Usually cool toned too- except for a coral red shade I wear in the summer
    – Plum blush.
    – Black eyeliner. I do use brown sometimes, but not nearly often enough.

  92. Your skin tone/coloring: warm medium

    Do you prefer red or orange lipstick? Neither, really… can’t I choose pink? :-)

    Do you prefer plum or brown blush? Again neither! Pink or coral for me :-)

    Do you prefer brown or black eyeliner? Definitely black.

  93. Tiffani

    My Skintone: Pale/Light Cool (lighter than NW/NC 15 with pink undertones)

    Red or Orange Lipstick: Usually red, but in the summer I tend to wear more orangy shades.

    Plum or Brown blush: Plum. Brown blushes look like dirt on my face.

    Brown or Black eyeliner: Depends on my current haircolor and the look I’m going for. At the moment, my hair is copper/red, so I usually go for brown, green, or plum/purple liner to bring out the green in my hazel eyes. Sometimes if I want to be super dramatic I’ll use Blacktrack, though.
