All shades of purple! Be it plum, violet, blurple, fuchsia, plummy-taupe, lilac (Nars Calisto), purple tinged browns, etc. I get kidded at my local MAC store about my thing for purple or purple-tinged products!
Catch is, that I’m not cool toned. But I love what it does for my eyes!

What cool-toned shadows do for your eyes is what warm-toned shades do for mine. My eyes are blue-grey and shadows that are orange and red-based REALLY bring out the blue! Sometimes, my eyes even look teal or aqua depending on what I’m wearing… and my mood.

Those too! Especially copper, orange-red, rose-golds, orange and rusty brown shades light up my eyes and face. Like I mentioned to Momo below, it was a pretty much a tie!
And I will wear the two color families together sometimes, too.

I can’t do pastel lavender lipsticks, but otherwise, I can rock almost all shades of purplein shadows, blushes, and lipsticks.

And a huge “Yes” to those shades for me as well, Momo! Copper, rose-gold, oranges, including orange-red, and rusty brown shades are nearly neck-in-neck with my range of purpley shades. Both work so beautifully with golden tan and olive shades of skintones!

I don’t think you can be a makeup lover without being inspired by all colour, but I think my heart beats faster for cosmetics in strong deep shades in the purple/plum/burgundy spectrum.

Smokey, grey-based pastel purple. I love them on the eyes and lips, just wish there were more lip options!
