Your skin tone/coloring: fair/peachy

Look you loved this week?: Just eye makeup (because masks) – NYX Baked Shadow in Belle, Wet n Wild MegaLiner in Winged n Wild, and Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I decluttered a lot of stuff and inventoried all of my makeup, so I definitely rediscovered a lot! Ulta Gel Eyeliner in Plum is something I haven’t used nearly enough since buying it, so I’m definitely trying to use it more.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I haven’t used Colourpop Creme Gel Eyeliner in Rum lately, so I’m hoping to use that a few times.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale-yellow, blue eyes, brown hair

Look you loved this week?: Posted on the discord yesterday: purples/taupe & VR shades from Mothership I with Kiko water shadow. I was feeling very smoked purple, I guess.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: that Kiko water shadow. I want a bunch more of those. Such a neat formula.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I really wanna do a green look, it’s been a while.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Look you loved this week?: Hmm – I did quite a few that I really liked, but my favourite was when I used the Pixi Beauty Reflex Light palette – with one of the gold shades all over the lid, the bronze shade on the mobile lid and teal green on the lower lid (Dior’s Jardin). I paired it with Laura Geller’s Battery Park Bronze.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Mecca Max’s Eyephoria for rich plums and golds.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Some of my Lancome palettes – Sparkling Intoxication and Jade Fever. I feel like some greens.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

I had lots of fun playing with my DC Rustic Glam and ND Metropolis palettes this week.

Any new or old favorites discovered?: The more I use Rustic Glam, the more I like it. Cactus is just a lovely shade, and it’s such a warm, happy palette.

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: I ordered the Pinky Rose Cosmetics Exotic Peacock palette and it looks like it will be so fun!

Your skin tone/coloring: above, green eyes

*Look you loved this week?: I have been very much into pairing the MJ Tantastic bronzer with a cream blush on top (yes I know. But it works) and the same blush lightly on the eyeballs with the bronzer in the crease. Simple, cohesive, fun (because I can change the blush up).

*Any new or old favorites discovered?:
– Lisa Eldridge lipsticks. I have the nude collection, and they are Made for fall, IMO.

-Eye Shadows from last month’s project I loved: Viseart Bridal: Peony; ND Safari: Tribe; UD Born to Run: Good as Gone

*Any product you’re hoping to use next week? The 5 new shadows rotated from my stash into my eyeshadow project (All shadows given a #; randomly choose 5 via an app; use for the month). This month is *all* shimmers. So will use a powder foundation and bronzer as my mattes.

-UD Naked 2: Bootycall
-UD Naked 2: Verve
-Viseart Coy: #9 (white)
-Viseart Coy: #3 (coral)
-UD Naked 3: Buzz

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 20

Look you loved this week?: Paired Dior Cool Neutrals with Chanel Elemental Quad

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Tarte Exposed Blush, Missha BB Cream and Revlon Prime Plus Mattifying Primer

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Natasha Denona Mini Retro palette and MAC Foiled eyeshadow in Tide n Seek

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Look you loved this week?: Nothing fancy – 2 shadows from Dior’s New Look palette (#2 and 3 with a little bit of #4 pressed on the outer third of my mobile lid), then all my “standards” – MAC Craving lipstick, Sephora Cappuccino liner, MAC Sweet Sentiment blush….
Any new or old favorites discovered?: I’ve hauled out Hourglass Ethereal Ambient Light powder to use to set my under eye concealer and to dust all over my face just for a bit of a “lift”.
Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: rms beauty’s Champagne Rose Luminizer and Dior Jungle palette

Look you loved this week?: I pulled another great look out of my Colourpop It’s My Pleasure palette. Started with Fan Fiction as a base, layered Do or Dough on top, and then smoked Chick Lit on the outer lower lash line. It looked great in person but with the California fires recently trying to find good lighting for pictures has been impossible but that’s also due to the finnicky nature of my phone camera

Any new or old favorites discovered?: Wet ‘n Wild Megaglo Highlighting Powder in “Precious Petals”. While I’ve been obsessed with highlighters with a softer, putty texture ala the Colourpop Super Shock Highlighters, I revisited this highlighter and found I can still appreciate a denser powder formula

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: The Morphe Icy Fantasy palette recently got me banned from storing makeup in the bathroom because some of the coloring from the package bled onto the white sink countertop, and while we were able to scrub it off, the offense was just too much for my mother who prefers that I only have the essentials on my countertop. Thankfully she didn’t make me throw out the palette itself so I’m still looking forward to using it albeit now with some mixed feelings

Your skin tone/coloring: Light with red

Look you loved this week?: Nothing comes to mind! I just did a lot of playing around with makeup this week, in particular playing around with my Sonia G, Wayne Goss and Rephr eye shadow brushes. I’ve challenged myself to really start using these brushes instead of just using my Sigma brushes (that I’m used to) all the time!

Any new or old favorites discovered?: I used Too Faced A La Mode palette and it still performed well!

Any product you’re hoping to use next week?: Melt Impulsive palette!
