I don’t know what color to classify them under, *exactly*, but my three favorite colors to wear are NARS Ondine & Lhasa, and L’Oreal Liquid Diamond.

Plum. no, Pink! No, wait, lavender, but really bright. but lately I’ve been really digging into some pretty greys. And RED eyeshadow. No one sells red eye color, hard to find. Forget eyeshadow.

What do people use on their brows nowadays? Am I the only one using the occasional bright eyeshadow right in the brows?

Ugh, I absolutey LOVE the color teal but of I wear it on my eyes I look like a streetwalker! Oh the dilemma. I’d have to go with red browns, bronzes or pinks.

Almost all except green colours ( If I wear green I always try a combo with a blue shade ), otherwise honestly speaking : all shades !

A soft, shimmery tan like Benefit’s Birthday Suit. Easy to wear, goes with almost everything, flattering, quick to apply. It’s just a beautiful color.

That combination sounds fantastic, Ariana! I always seem to end up wearing green with my purples, but I usually add a touch of silver like with the eyeliner. I have no idea why gold never entered my mind but I’ll try that next!

Taupes – any taupe from MAC Satin Taupe to Chanel Taupe Grise, TheBalm Insane Jane, UD Mushroom, Deeper and MIA (they’re leaning toward brown but still taupey brown), Too Faced Glamazon, Maybelline Tastefully Taupe, Benefit Where There’s Smoke and Birthday Suit – if it’s Taupe, I will wear it! (and I also love browns and teals but taupe is my weakness!)

I’ve gone back to the monochromes, too. Smoky matte greys…. Mmmm, yum! I’d love to hear what are your favorites, either here or up above. πŸ™‚

Shimmery beiges and golds. If anyone can recommend some more neutral shades for NC40 skintone, I would be very happy. πŸ™‚ I already own MAC Soba.

NARS Portobello (duo) or singles in Blondie, Galapagos, or (especially if you have blue eyes) Fez. UD Buck & Naked are practically dupes for Portobello, and are also both included in the original Naked palette. Since you like shimmery shadows, and aren’t pale, this may be a good investment for you. HTH

Since you listed 2 Christine, I don’t feel bad about listing mine since I really can’t choose! Bronze-brown or purple. πŸ™‚

Taupes, olives and purples are my top three faves! I also love gold, copper, and browns.

Red and blue are the only two colors I’m too scared to wear.

Definitely taupe. It’s a neutral that’s never boring and that can always be “dressed up” if need be. Love it!

Grey! Esp. dark greys like gunmetal. It seems to work perfectly in countering the yellowness in my skin, and always makes me feel sexy and sophisticated. After that, purple.

LOL. You too? πŸ˜€ Since we seem to share a love of grey, Nicoco Chanel, have you ever looked at MUFE’s Aqua Cream #1 in Anthracite? Hands down, my favorite grey ever! Plus, it stays on like glue without fading. Such a sexy shade of grey. And since you wrote below about matte greys, I recently got Bobbi Brown’s “Steel” which is a lovely smoky, dark grey with just a faint (faint!) hint of blue-grey. Really pretty! What are some of your favorite greys?

pink for fun days but for every day, more like a bronzey brown sort of like Mac teddy eye kohl. I think urban decay snakebite is gorgeous too.

just this once jamie from the balm, my absolutly favorite eyeshadow color at this time. I love greyish taupe with a touch of mauve. Taupe is my mostly used color.

If I had to choose one, it would be copper. I don’t wear it very often, but it makes my eyes stand out and I like metallic eyeshadow!

I love wearing greens! My favorite is from one of the ready eyeshadow duos from bareminerals. They duo is called the scenic route and the green is gorgeous. And the texture is buttery smooth and the color payoff is great!

Browns, but like taupe browns, like Mac Malt is sort of taupe, great crease color, I love that Matte taupe in the Naked Two Palette, I forget the name, oh and right now believe it or not, my favorite Taupe for my crease at the moment is the Taupe Blush by Nyx, and it’s massive so I use it everyday now, with a darker brown in the crease. I also love Champagne colors like Stila Kitten, or UD sin. Can never get enough of neutrals.

champagne colors, golds, greens, chartreuse, neutrals – sparkly stuff – it’s really hard to pick an absolute favorite, but….if I had to pick one that I had to live with forever, it would be some sort of shimmery neutral that would go with everything and anything prolly

I love pale yellow, peach or champagne on my lid — my absolute FAVE color is a wonderful peach with gold and pink shimmers that I bought in Korea. And my fave eyeliner color is anything teal, although I’m currently wearing a lot of the green shadow in the UD SMoked Palette…

Almost anything in the purple & blue color families. I also enjoy olive greens, certain browns, though I’m not much of a neutral eye looks, I prefer color.

I love a browns with greys. If you blend out Mac Constructivist (a warm bronze) in the crease it becomes more taupey grey, and then layer more on the lid without blending too much, you have a bronze/taupey grey look with one eyeshadow!
