At the moment I prefer more natural looks but I will do bolder looks when it gets closesr to Christmas and then wear natural looks again until Spring and Summer.

Im more into natural looks lately, because they are so much more easy to make and when Im in a hurry they are also faster. Sometimes I get in the mood for some bold looks but I have to stay in front of the mirror about 15 min. When I go to club I always have bold looks 🙂

I love natural looks. They suit me best and I feel more comfortable with natural colors on my face. Im a very fair (dark)blonde and bold colors make me look like a dragqueen!

Id say somewhere in between. Im loving looks using really pigmented bright colors, but Im more into shimmery versions of bold looks than matte opaque really bold versions.

I really like both. It depends on my mood that particular day. Though if I had to choose one, Id go with BOLD. Dark and dramatic or bright and brillant.

Being a mom, I dont enter the bold zone often. I enjoy putting on a full face every day, but stay pretty neutral.

natural looks better on me, or maybe I just dont have the confidence to pull off a bold look :p but I guess, once in a while, Ill put on something a bit bolder. But otherwise, most of the time, its natural and I think it suits me.

I think everyones interpretation of bold will be a little different. Perhaps its the wisdom that comes with a few decades under my belt, but I prefer a bold look that compliments my natural beauty. I dont go for bright colors that dont work with my skin tone, eye and lip color. For example, I would never go with a teal look because Id look like a clown or the simple, every day look that provides just a hint of color on the lids because it washes me out, my eyes dont pop with that kind of look. I have smaller eyes (not apparent because Ive learnt how to create the illusion of a bigger eye with a slight wing and a definite V. I prefer a pop of color on the lip that coordinates with my shadow (which is usually a purple, burgundy or brown) because I have a small mouth.

Itll be interesting to see what other women prefer. Great question! I just found your blog, and I love it!

i think you are on the right track. it depends on what you mean by bold. i like natural looks but i don’t want to always look like i have no makeup on. i frequently do a dark smokey eye that depending on your opinion could be considered a “bold” look. however, i don’t like my makeup to look like a rainbow exploded on my face. there are days i look pretty natural and other days you can tell i have makeup on but i don’t think i’m too outrageous or bold. for instance i have yet to embrace a true red lip. maybe one day…

I love the natural look that makes me look like i naturally have flawless skin and not like im wearing tons of make up.

I love dramatic looks on my eyes but I love to keep my lips and cheeks very simple. So I usually do a bit of both.
