    MAC Shore Leave

  2. aramis

    Blanc type for mattes and femmi fi for shimmery

  3. Catherine

    MAC’s vapour, brule, dazzlight, or universal mix pigment from All races collection!! all are so great!

  4. vickie

    MAC Femme-fi and Orb

  5. Helena

    If I had Femme-fi…that would be it. To replicate it, I top Gesso with Retrospeck, as Retrospeck has Femme-fi’s multidimensional shimmer, but is actually darker than my skin tone!

  6. Diana

    Ricepaper hands down!!!!!! I recently bought Naked Lunch and Shroom but I still reach for Ricepaper. It just looks amazing on tan skin ๐Ÿ˜€

  7. MAC Orb or Cargo Essential Eye Shadow Palette Warm/neutral white shade ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. For all bright colors I prefer Electra frm mac and for all bronzie, browns & gold eyeshadows def femmi fi (limited ed) frm MAC also, temptalia’s fave! :)

  9. Fyrinnae’s Polar Bear. Soft gold that goes with almost anything!

  10. Shiseido Luminizing Satin Face Color in High Beam White

  11. Jenn

    Blanc type or tissueweight

  12. flygirl

    MAC Vanilla e/s

  13. MAC Brule! I don’t know what I’d do without it!

  14. Natalie

    My favourite highlight is MAC Shroom!

  15. Vanessa

    MAC pearl cream colour brow & cheek highlighter!

  16. Jennifer

    Love this question! Always on the lookout for a fantastic brow highlighter. At the moment, I’m using MAC’s Vanilla pigment.

  17. Daniela

    SAME HERE! i love femme-fi i wish i had more than one backup):

  18. Mickee

    MAC Blanc Type :)

  19. Rachel

    shu uemura eye light pencil. Comes with two ends, matte and pearl. While the pearl one is great for inner eye corner and waterline, the matte one works perfectly on eyebrows.

  20. brandy

    nyx milk jumbo pencil for matte or cottage cheese for shimmer

  21. francesca

    Shroom or Grain!

  22. Nic

    MAC Vanilla eyeshadow – it’s close to my skin tone and it’s not shimmery.

  23. konconsc

    I would say MAC brule for natural day look and shroom for more dramatic look

  24. I love the Funky Fresh’s pigment Vanilla, it’s a dirty white and it’s perfect for the brow’s area ๐Ÿ˜€

  25. Lo

    MAC Vanilla or Blanc type, with a little bit of Shroom patted on top, the combo provides a nice sheen without too much shimmer.

  26. MAC Vanilla & Ricepaper. Sometimes Cream Color Base in Pearl

  27. A nice really matte highlighter is from MUD (makeup designory) called Lemon Cream Highlight (you can see it here!

    It’s sold with the blushes, but I use it for everything on the face that needs a matte highlight with no shimmer – under eyes, brow bone, to contour… you get the idea!

  28. vivian

    MAC vanilla pigment!

  29. Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow “Bone” or MAC eyeshadow “Dazzlelight”

  30. Sam

    Everyday Minerals Pearl Beige!

  31. Ana

    Benefit’s EyeBright! Doubles as an eye brightener and brow bone highlighter. I haven’t tried their actual brow highlighter pencil (highBrow, I think) because I already had eyeBright and find that it works great for the brow :)

  32. shontay


  33. Sonia

    MAC Blanc Type

  34. julia

    MAC vanilla e/s

  35. It must be MAC Shroom!

  36. Virginia

    NARS Abyssinia! Love this shadow!

  37. It’s MAC Shroom (my skin is very fair).

  38. Donna Cooper

    I love Christopher Drummond Pele. I buy the try me pots and use on brow and top of cheek bones. Amazing product, not too shiny suits any skin tone.

  39. White wheat from the Inventive Eyes Quad from the Naturally Eccentric collection 2005. I use it sparingly because I have never found a dupe and this and twillery from the quad are AMAZING. I wish MAC would repromote

  40. Bahar

    Mac Vanilla Pigment

  41. same here, I use femme-fi with almost everything, I love it

  42. isis

    It used to be Femme Fi but now I prefer Brule or Nanogold :)

  43. Renate

    Mac Shroom.

  44. Laura

    Mylar, but everyone else seems to think it’s too chalky :( I was at a CCO looking for it the other day but they didn’t have it so I got chamomile, finding it a bit yellow for my nc15 – nw20 (summer) skin at the moment. Perhaps a few more days in the sun and it’ll work better. :) xxx

  45. Brenda

    MAC Shroom

  46. MAC Vanilla is my standard. Its Mac Naked Lunch for softer highlights, though its not a very noticable highlight. Hooray for being very pale!

  47. Shalise


  48. Sarah M

    MAC’s Mylar eye shadow

  49. Shelley

  50. venny

  52. montygrl4131

    Blanc type

  53. Jayna

    Too Faced Glamorous Life – now Disc – from the Coutur collection, pale yellow gold with an awesome texture like a veluxe pearle. I think I have still have one more spare! This is actually the only Too Faced shadow I wear.

    MAC Femme-Fi or Arena

  67. mmhmm

    I like Brule for a very subtle highlight, but if I want something more dramatic, I go for Missy from the Sephora Kat Von D True Love palette, which is a white with subtle purple pearl.
