    A good primer, my mineral powder, slightly orange/peachy blush (brings out my blue eyes, if you do an eye look with little to no color, I find it’s a great way to bring out eyes), and winged liner with a shell-colored eyeshadow (winged liner helps elongate my very big, very round, very Caucasian eyeballs :) ).

    A frosty lipstick (I have a fact that can handle it) and some gloss on the lips. And I’m done!!!

    What about you Christine? I feel like most of the looks you do on this site make you look beautiful…

    I like colours on me, anything that’s bright or dark it awesome – can’t live without I stick to light sheer pinks, bronze or crazy blue, orange, purple lipglosses. I think just lip balm looks great on me too because I have naturally pigmented lips. I’m not so into bright pinks when it comes to cheeks, I feel like it makes me look weird hehe. But muted peach pinks are great and I love peach browns. Wow… I think I’ve rambled a bit hehe.. oops!

    Although recently I’ve done a look with Bare Study PP as a base, foiled Pastorale pigment, Juxt e/s over the pigment to have a really nice pop of green, Violet pigment in the crease, black eyeliner in waterline and white eyeliner around the tearduct. Plus the beauty powder blush from Enough Said! :] I really liked that.

  3. My favorite look lately is a a smokey eye either with the Chanel smokey eye quad or the new Chanel beiges quad. The smokey eye look really just makes my eyes pop and I can get away with out much else. I am also loving YSL Touche Eclat for hilighting.

    just did a purple smokey eye that complimented my fake green eyes lol i didn’t even use mac for anything just the lips (creme d’nude with underage LG on top) i used HIP cream liner in the purple all over my lid…and a dark purple from my loreal plum mosaic palate…and the light pink as the highlighter…i also used my revlon bronze eyeshadow palette as a highlighter/bronzer…came out nice :)

  5. Taylor

    Since I’m pale with really light eyes and dark hair, I look best in cooler colors although I always have to have bronzer…so I’ve got it down pat now:

    -light dusting of Nars bronzer in Laguna
    -Clinique blush in Cupid
    -MAC Lighscapade highlighter
    -MAC shadow in Satin Taupe
    -black liner (usually L’Oreal or MAC)
    -Sephora lip pencil in light pink ( i cannot live without it )
    -MAC lipstick in Angel or Snob or lipglass in Cultured

  6. I line my entire eye with liquid liner flare out the end and the inner corner and throw some black eyeliner in on the waterline.I get a lot compliments when I do this.

    Russian Red lipstick is always a show stopper =)

  7. Rio

    I tend to look good with extremes. Really dark or rainbow colors on my eyes. I get the most compliments when I wear really dark eyeshadow, usually with black.

  8. I like bold eyes and light lips! :)

  9. Dawn

    I look best in Blues, greens/teals and Browns and Golds. These are my favorites to work with.

    My favorite look is:
    Delft Paint pot, Newly Minted, Shimmermoss, Freshwater on lid and crease and Myster Liner on the bottom lashes.

    My second favorite, more neurtal look:
    Rubenesque Paint pot, Dreammaker, GO, Bold and Brazen, Coppering on lid and crease with Raven liner on the bottom lashes

  10. Erin/slipnslide

    Browns greens and golds are most flattering on me, in any order I think. Next would be plums, wine/purple colors and oranges. Pinks aren’t so bad on me either but I’d put them last, with blues.

    I get the most compliments when I do what I consider my lazy look because it takes me 5 minutes to do.
    defined brows, studio fix, mocha blush very subtle as a contour, neutral eye shadows(usually shroom all over the lid with malt in the crease) slightly winged liquid liner, and a matte red lip.
    The pinup look has always been my favorite and it amazes me when women ask for it thinking it’s going to be difficult to do.

    for some odd reason – i get the most compliments from strangers on my eyeshadow when i’m wearing teal eyeshadows. i find it odd because my boyfriend hates when i wear makeup because he doesn’t like fake looking girls but he really likes my eyes in bright teals (though, personally i prefer purples). i think he likes when i look like a doll cause he likes my cheeks pink and lashes big, as opposed to my preference to cantaloupe blush and no mascara.

  13. Anna

    the most flattering look on me is definitely a smokey eye! it doesn’t necessarily have to be black smokey. green/purple/brown/navy works too. i think blue/navy smokey eye’s the best look on me :) complete with neutral/nude lips.

    I have pale (but warm skin), brown hair, and dark brown eyes, so I generally stick to golds, bronzes, pinks, purples, and some blues. I love doing neutral looks with a pop of color – I feel that all over color looks make me look like a clown (I envy people that can pull off bright colors!). I’ve fallen in love with colored eyeliners as they bring out the warmth in my eyes more than black ever has. I love the sparkle eyeliners by Clinique, and Mac’s pencil kohl eyeliner stays on forever.

    My favorite look is:

    -Perfectly Real Makeup by Clinique in Shade 01
    -Fresh Bloom All-Over Color by Clinique in Peony
    -Shag Deluxe Eyeshadow by UD on lid
    -Underground Deluxe Eyeshadow by UD in crease
    -Daylight Eyeshadow by Clinique on browbone
    -Brown Sugar Clinique Cream Shaper Eyeliner
    -Mascara

    It’s really simple but makes my eyes pop like no other :)

  15. Smokey eyes using gray, green or purple with neutral lip gloss compliments my brown eyes and blonde hair.

    I’m also really into MAC Blacktrack winged out a tiny bit with no eyeshadow, a light pink blush like MAC Pink Swoon and an elegant lipstick like MAC Plumful or NARS Dolce Vita.

    Purple smoky eyes. They just do something for me, I can’t really say what. I just find that I look and feel my very best when I rock a smoky purple look.

  17. pia

    I got plenty of compliments when I wear my shadows like what Oprah usually has on her shows. It’s blackish/bluish shadow close to lid, then star n violet up to crease and nanogold on brow bone.

    Also when I wear my Russian Red :)
