    I´m most comfortable in light neutral, goldish shades on eyes and lips. My all time favorite look is Shroom (or Femme-Fi nowadays), Woodwinked and Bronze on eyes and Frou (Sunsonic)l/s with Elaborate l/g (Hush-Hush tt) on lips, on cheeks it´s Eversun BPB and Light Flush MSF.
    I always buy new shades to recreate this same look, lol! I can do this over and over again with differently named shades and still achieve the same look. I´m incorrigible!

  2. claudine

    smokey eyes and lightbeige, lightpink or lightpeach lips

  3. My most comfortable look is dark smoky eyes and neutral pinky beige lips…but i have been stepping outside my comfort zone and trying different, brighter colors…

  4. meg

    It sort of depends but 9 times out of 10 I feel the most comfortable in a dark smokey eye with a nude lip.

    I feel best when I feel well matched :) I need some colors on mye eyes; it could be pink (which I love a lot), brown (which I have recently “discovered”), purple, silver or green (but for some reason blue is hard to make work). On my lips I prefer something subtle, and on the nails I like dark colors.

    So I feel most comfortable wearing colors that go well with my clothes. Or actually, I mostly decide on nailpolish and makeup colors first, and make the clothes match :) Today I feel really comfortable, in a black skirt, light blue t-shirt, Opi “my private jet” on the nails, the new Clinique quick eyes cream shadow in “rock violet” and lips au naturel.

    smokey eyes, a nice blush, nude lips and nails.

  7. Laney

    smoky eyes, light glossy lips, pinky or bronzey blush

  8. Laney

    oh yeah smoky as in gray/silver, brown, and purples

  9. Ooh, probably a matte red lip and winged black eyeliner. Oh, and I wear NARS Laguna bronzer practically 24/7.

    Neutrals. Right now I’m loving my bamboo and woodwinked eyeshadow. For lios, I’m using my Dazzleglasses now, but my stand by is Viva Glam V. That’s my comfort right there.

    I am a neutral freak…so that’s what I’m most comfortable in. Woodwinked is my absolute most favorite eyeshadow!! I have been experimenting with color lately, so I am learning to be more comfortable in that as well!

  12. I’m most comfortable in bright, bold eye makeup and neutral lips. That doesn’t mean I don’t go out of my comfort zone every now and again. :)

  13. usually i like neutrals on the eyes and brighter shade on the lips — but, the opposite works for me as well :) the only thing i am NOT comfortable with is dark shades on my lips. i think it looks funny on me (hence the reason i can’t do red)

  14. Tekoa

    Colourful eyes or bold lips! When I was on vacation I missed wearing makeup like crazy. To feel normal again I dug out Ramblas Red. It surprised the other girls that I felt most myself in red lipstick. *lol*

  15. Hillary

    bright eyes.
    pretty much any color of the rainbow im alright in…lips pretty much anything lighter. but nude, but light pinks and peaches. which ever goes best with the eyes.

    i dont like the look of browns on myself. i only do them when im in a hurry.

  16. HeavenLeiBlu

    Neutral/Bronzy, perhaps because thatsmy natural coloring. I’m getting more comfy with pops of color though. Thinking about submitting something for the blue challenge!

  17. lala

    hmmm ..I don’t know anymore…I’ve been doing naturals looks since the neo and ch collection came out…and I’m ok w/ it…but my mascara’s been off…a little bit…not looking as bold as I wish it too look…so I don’t know if its because the natural makeup (which is odd because black lashes should stand out more)..so I don’t know..I know I need mascara and blush all day everyday lmao

  18. I feel most comfortable in Bright colours.and yes RED lips,I love them to wear again and again!!

    Zzainyyy…

  19. Since I work in a very conservative law firm, I usual wear light neutral eyeshadows (MAC Soba and Shroom are my favs) with neutral glossy lips. Other than work, I like black smokey eyes and glossy lips.

  20. Amanda

    I like to wear bright, bold colors that are coordinated with my outfit for the day. I usually do a light, pink or peachy lipstick and gloss. For the weekend, I like to do a dark, smokey eye with a nude lip.

    Honestly, I’m comfortable in just about everything.

    I am, however, completely *un*comfortable if I’m out of the shower longer than about an hour and I haven’t put foundation on yet. I don’t know what it is, but my skin feels gross to me then.

  22. Annie

    My most comfortable look would be all over bronzer and black rimmed eyes, with 100 coats of black mascara, and Underplay lipstick!

  23. DevilishDoll

    My eyes usually match my shirt. So it’s usually pink, purple, blue, green or black. And I usually wear pink lipgloss (like Ms.Fizz which is my new addiction)

  24. Bianca

    It depends on what inspires me when I open my traincase. Sometimes i’ll use my bright shadows and I’ll pair them with glossy soft lips. Other days bright lipsticks catch my eye and I’ll pair them with soft eyes. Sometimes I’m too lazy and will do a neutral look. It really just depends on my mood.

  25. Jenna

    I feel gorgeous with black eyeliner drawn in the cat’s eye style with nude lips. And if nothing else works for me that day, flawless skin!

  26. Ladybug

    Black mascara, dark brown eyeliner, neutral eyeshadow, defined brows and flushed cheeks! Because I love the look and it works for me.

  27. Selene

    i am definitely more confident in neutrals with black mascara and a deep colored eyeliner.
