LE HGs MAC Rubia lipstick and ostentatious fluidline. Desperately looking for dupes. 🙁

I’m an NW15, i have raven coloured hair (so, very very dark brown) and light blue eyes. I love using MAC powerpoint in Permaplum to make my eyes pop. Must be something about it, since i always get compliments when wearing it 🙂 I love using a little flush of MAC Tippy Blush on the cheeks, to add some colour to my pale complexion. And Dior Addict in Beige Dessous is my HG nude lipstick, topped with TLC in Fuschia Fix to get that sexy, rosy pout.

I’m cool toned fair skinned. I have dark blond hair and olive green eyes.

Skincare: Aquaphor ointment!!!! That stuff conditions my eyelids, lashes, and lips so well. I love my Neutrogena Healthy Defense Moisturizer

Foundation: Laura Mericer Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer is amazing

Eyes: Stila Eyeshadow in Kitten, MAC eye kohl in Tarnish

Cheeks: Nars Oasis blush

Lips: L’Oreal Lipstick in Pink Lady, Aquaphor as a night treatment. Burt’s Bee’s lip shimmers, C.O Bigelow tinted lip balm and Rose Salve.

I’ve got fair skin and hazel-green eyes. I could wear any makeup but I wear contact lenses and it’s pretty difficult to find the right product. I’d rather use a great nail polish, put some blush and some mascara 🙂
My fav products: OPI nail polish in any dark shade, Cargo SupersEyes Mascara and Benefit Blush

I’m tanned(asian, mac face and body foundation C4, studio fix nc43), black hair, black eyes.
I couldn’t, really COULDN’T live without my mac studio finish concealors in nc30 and nw30 (I mix the two together,lol)
Any lip balm!!(mac skin salve at the moment), fashin mews(or myth), blacktrack fluidline, smoky lash and bare mineral’s faux tan!!! 😀

I’m the same color type and also love snob lipstick. and orpheus Khol from mac. When wearing foundation for work or event I also need the primer form mac. and blotting papers from Johnson

I’m medium-brown skinned with brown eyes & jet black hair. My HG’s are HIP eyeliner (the 1 that comes in the pot) in black & MAC dazzleglass in Baby Sparks.

The HG products I always fall back on;

* Maybelline – Define-A-Lash
* L’Oreal Blush Delice – Old Rose
* The Body Shop – e/s in #29 Pink
* Clinique Buttershine – Baby Baby
* MAC – Creme Cup lipstick
* MAC – Viva Glam V lipglass

I’m a NC50, with dark brown eyes, and black hair. Loreal Voluminous Carbon Black is my HG mascara. My HG eyeshadow is Urban Decay’s Honey. It is the perfect gold, because it doesn’t look ashy against my skin tone. Another gold I love is Mac’s Melon pigment. My HG red lipstick is Mac’s Ruby Woo. Any red with a strong blue undertone always looks great on me. My HG blush is Nars Exhibit A. I wear it when I wear Ruby Woo. I know there are supposed to be rules about wearing red blush with red lipstick, but if you blend out Exhibit when wearing Ruby Woo, they don’t clash at all. I still don’t have an HG lipgloss/lipglass, so I can’t wait to see what everyone else writes. Also, at the moment I don’t wear neutral lipsticks or lipglosses, because they always look ashy on me. I guess I have to keep searching.

I have no idea about my skintone, but I’m fair to medium skinned, with dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. My HG products are Mac MSFN in Medium, Guerlain Le 2 mascara in black, Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Zero and Mac brow set in Show Off. I don’t really have a HG blush, eyeshadows or lipsticks/lipglosses as I have many and like varying them, but I guess Stereo Rose MSF as blush and Pleasureflush MSF as highlighter are pretty hard to beat, and I really like Avon’s 24K Gold lipstick in Natural Gold which is a gorgeous nude pink shade.

I am a neutral, light-medium, with green eyes and whatever the hair color of the week is. This week it’s blond and red! My HG products are Gentle Mineralize Blush, Feline eye kohl, CG Lash Blast mascara, and any shade of tinted lip conditioner!!

My #1 HG item: Clinique Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector. It’s just $17.50. It leaves my skin with a matte finish but, my natural skintone. I use a very small amount for my forehead and chin. It’s silky and lightweight and, most importantly, can survive disgustingly hot and humid NJ shore summers. Doesn’t even need a powder over it.
Mascara (tied): Diorshow Iconic Mascara, Covergirl Lash Blast
Lipstick: MAC Craving
Blush: Smashbox Blushing Rose
Bronzer: MAC Blunt (I use it more for contouring)
Liner: MAC Fluidline Blacktrack
Shadow: I use mostly MAC shadowws but, if I’m in a rush – Smashbox Waterproof Shadowliners. I have a range of colors. I can use them as a base to powder shadows or use them my themselves for opaque coverage.

The one tool that I’ve pushed on all my friends and my mom: the throw-away mascara wand from Sephora. In a rush, I can use these wands instead of an eyelash curler (apply mascara, wait a few seconds, then gently push up on the lashes with the throwaway wand) and can seperate lashes jammed together when I screw up my mascara. I ALWAYS make sure I have a wand with me when I go away.

I’m medium neutral toned (about an NW25/30), with dark cherry hair (dyed) and honey brown eyes. Some of my HG’s are
– MUFE HD foundation in 118
– Nars Deep Throat blush
– MAC Blankety lipstick
– MAC Painterly p/p
– MAC Ruby Woo lipstick
– Lancome Hypnose mascara

I’m an NW-20 with dark bown hair and green-blue-grey eyes.

I discovered Skinfinishes earlier this year, and OMG I’m in love. I use medium-light, but if I get it again, I’ll probably get medium. Also, I love using ANY purples on my eyes, it makes them look so green!

Medium-light, golden olive. Dark eyes, dark hair. I’ve been told I’m neutral-cool and neutral-warm. So I say neutral.

MUFE Fascinating lipgloss #9, #15
Shu Uemura blushes in the “amber” range

Covergirl: Exach Lash (nothing curls like this mascara)
MAC Lip moisturizing treatment ( I use the Soothing Beige color)
