is skin a weird answer? I like to play with different finishes, level of coverage, types of highlight and contour, strong or natural blush, and then make up the rest of my face to compliment that.

I always thought you had to pick either eyes or lips to play up, so it took me a long time to realize that my complexion is actually my statement feature! When I want to feel amazing, I go light on the eyes and lips and focus on making my skin glow. I finish with highlight, blush, a very soft contour, and finishing powder 🙂

Usually lips – I do the rest of my makeup based on what colour lipstick I want to wear that day; heck, I do my *outfit* around the colour of lipstick I want to wear! I don’t feel that my lips are particularly special – I just really like lipstick as a thing 😀

I have big eyes and really thick eyebrows so unless I put on a really bright lipstick or bold blush they tend to be the focus. Lately, because it’s been hot and humid and I’ve been too lazy to bother with detailed eye looks I’ve been putting most of my focus on my cheeks- my hair really frizzes up in the humidity so I figured I may as well enhance the 80s look rather than try fighting it.

It’s often my bone structure, now I think about it. I’m happy to leave the house with just my cheeks and brows done if I’m in a rush.

Yes totally agree that Brows and Cheeks are the most important features that frame the face.
My cheekbones are my best feature i think and i love playing with my zillions of blushes, bronzers and highlighters !!!
I wish i had thicker brows though so i didn’t have to define them everyday as i don’t find this part very fun !

I love my green eyes, so I always try to play them up. But I have actually found that in many ways a red lip (or pink, or purple, or coral) can do more for green eyes than eye makeup. Ii do eye makeup and lipstick about equally, but always with the same intention.

My eyes. I always wear at least liquid eyeliner on my eyes as their quite small and I like to bring them out with eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara. I also like to use a bronzer to slim my face down.

Eyes, for sure – mostly because they take more time, products and “work” than any other part of my face (primer, lid colour, crease colour, inner corner, outer V, browbone, liner mascara….). But even when my eyes are the main feature, I never back off on my lips – I don’t like a “nude” lip on me (or on most people, for that matter) so my lips are always “in balance” with my eyes.

I have fairly light skin, and my eyes are large/round, and nearly black, so they tend to pull focus no matter what I do. My lips, however, are my weakest feature, so even if I wear a “naked” eye with a bold lip, my eyes still stand out. I also tend to put as much “work” into a neutral eye as I would with bolder shades, although I will omit liner at times.

I also like to play with contouring & highlighting, although I have a strong bone structure naturally. I just saw feel it adds a bit of dimension, and balances my strong jawline.

Usually my eyes. Although, I’m not afraid to do a bold eye and lip lately, since I’ve ventured into the realm of dark lipstick. I was always conscious of my small, thin lips, but now I’m ok with showing them off. 🙂

Usually eyes, but sometimes I like to focus on a brighter blush or a nicely sculpted face with a perfect highlighted glow. I never ever let the lips be in focus!

My eyes; they are round and quite big, and I love bright eyeliners and eyeshadows; however, I would love to center my look around my bone structure… the big problem is I don’t have such a great one, so I’ll just pass 🙁

Usually my eyes, but I feel I’m becoming a lip person because I’m so in love with some darker lipsticks and I want to wear them all the time.
But, overall, I use eyeliner everyday, but I feel ok not using lipstick.

It depends, if I have a very good skin day, then lips it is, but If my face is feeling a little bad because of some nasty pimple then eyes it is haha so I can focus attention anywhere else xD but not on my pimples 🙂
