    I’m very boring when it comes to blush; I’ve found what works, so I don’t find a need to explore others ATM.

    • Just goes to prove we all different beasts and cannot agree on everything! LoL :) I died laughing when I read your post because I think we are at opposite ends of the spectrum on this one.

      • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Amy xamyx

        My fetish is eyeshadow. I have to cut corners *somewhere*, LOL. Also, I used to wear more blush, and I do actually own several, but it just got a bit overwhelming trying to find the right blush/eyeshadow combination, which added more time to getting ready, so when I found shades that work for any occasion, I pretty much settled for those. I did wear a random blush from a LORAC gift set from the 2010 Holiday collection last night (it was the first time I used the set since I bought it-I have a problem).

    Oh God. I plead the Fifth. With my blush addiction, choosing just one is really impossible. (Esp. as, with my OCD, I’d have to distinguish between light -vs- dark eyeshadow shades for the purples and greens.) I refuse to bore you all! LOL. But it’s fascinating to read everyone else’s answers. :)

  40. kayce.

    Your skin tone/coloring:
    — very fair, but with mixed undertones (my veins are definitively blue-green, and i wear warm/yellow tones as easily as cool/blue or pink ones… weird, i know). i used to use clinique’s city stick in ivory, but it’s discontinued so i recently switched to laura geller real deal foundation stick in light. it’s a skosh off my natural color, but not bad.

    What’s your favorite blush to pair with green eyeshadow?
    — a bright coral blush, like neon orange m.a.c. pigment or revlon photo ready blush in coral (both my current favorites). they go on pretty sheer initially, which is how i like them when i’m wearing green shadow.

    What’s your favorite blush to pair with brown eyeshadow?
    — this one is tough b/c i wear brown shadow a lot, but in different ways. my favorite for fall evenings is a more glam look, so i use m.a.c.’s dark diversion fluid line. (i use a lot of my makeup as pigments, lol, and mixing medium + fluidline is a great blush when you want a big dose of color.)

    What’s your favorite blush to pair with purple eyeshadow?
    — for something different, i use anna sui’s pinkish yellow blush duo, using a bit more yellow than pink. if the shadow is vibrantly purple or quite dark, i layer it for more color impact.

    What’s your favorite blush to pair with brown eyeshadow? mac well dressed
    What’s your favorite blush to pair with purple eyeshadow? no blush at all, just a perfect contour as I find blush a little bit to much fpr purple eyeshadows

  42. Your skin tone/coloring: Very pale with pink undertones.
    What’s your favorite blush to pair with green eyeshadow? I guess it depends on whether it’s a bright green or a smoky or neutral green. Bright green, I’d wear a bright pink blush. Otherwise, a muted plum blush like Fyrinnae Mesmerize.
    What’s your favorite blush to pair with brown eyeshadow? Just about any, really.
    What’s your favorite blush to pair with purple eyeshadow? Hot pink, like Sleek Santorini or Boots No 7 Blossoming Pink cream blush.
