Cool-toned neutral eyeshadow palettes that don’t include the seemingly obligatory gold/bronze shade… Also, foundation that actually matches my skin, and highlighters that are talc- & petroleum-free.

Well, it all makes me happy but I love me some purple – purple lipstick, glosses, blushes, shadows, eyeliners, etc. because I look great in all kinds of purple 🙂

Depending on where my head is at on a given day, I love it when it works in sync with my coloring and features, giving me a certain “something”, be it sophistication or conversely, a rocker chic!
Or….let it just plays up my eyes as the main focus.
Which is why I may be bringing MAC The Fashion Flock lipstick back, regrettably. Such a gorgeous color, but no matter what I’ve tried so far, it goes very lip-liney on me. Basically, I look like either an aging crack ho. Sad.😥

Even the 2 different eyebrow wax sticks didn’t work! Yet the icky, dried up MAC eyebrow wax that was about to get chucked did? The shade itself is beautiful, though almost neon because it seems to have a white base. But it goes into every little crack and crevice in my lips that up until I tried THIS lipstick on, didn’t even know that I had! So frustrating, and extremely weird. Also, it catches on any little flake, that again, are utterly unnoticeable until THIS goes on. And, yep, I always exfoliate them before. I’m just confounded.😕
I do believe Bite Amuse Boucle in Sorbet may be more forgiving, and a very close shade! 😃

I adore the focus on my lips! When I’m low on time in the mornings, I always pull out a statement lip and instantly brighten up. I rarely ever wear “true nude” colors, preferring natural pinks a little lighter than my lip over something closer to my skin, whereas I’ll do nothing on my eyes but a fast sweep of mascara. Every time I see my reflection, it’s something I can clearly see and go “hey, that’s me, my lips are awesome and I do look beautiful today.”

I’d love to have amazing skin but as it is, storm fronts in my area are shoving my skin to the backseat. Oh well–nothing that can’t be hidden with a good foundation and that Taylor Swift lip 😀

Neutral lids with a black cat eye liner, and big [natural, but mascaraed lashes] lashes. Soft foundation, with light blush and glossed lips. And don’t forget the subtle highlight. 🙂

On myself, a well-executed colorful eye or bright lip that enhances my complexion. I guess I don’t expect my skin to get to amazingness at this point (age almost 60), but I get upset when there’s weird swelling, or sudden shrinkage with an abundance of saggy skin, or weird spots or rashes to deal with, but I think of makeup as only a temporary fix for that, look to skin care for more long-term remediation.

On others: whatever makes the person feel happy and more confident 🙂

I love luminous perfect skin and and am loving a perfect eye with more matte neutrals and the shimmer on the mobile lid. I’ll bring in color as our weather warms. I really am still loving a good liner flick, but can’t get it right on myself sill. So, I do a good smoky liner. BROWS are a must for me!

The whole shebang! Great skin and a really polished look, which to me means a well-blended eye (could be a pop of color or neutral) with 3-4 colors, and coordinated cheek and lip.

Hard to say as I love most makeup! Which is funny because I don’t do much regularly. I think I feel the most myself with either a gothier look or light shimmering eyes with a dark or bright lip.
