How would you describe your makeup style?

I really like to play around with color combinations and layering of textures/undertones to create more depth in color/finish. I want to say colorful but wearable but don’t feel like that truly fits me either! Maybe “incapable of using just one eyeshadow” is the best way to describe me, though.

Same here, an eye look is a minimum of two eyeshadows, and it’s mandatory ! Most of the time it’s a smoky eye or a cat eye, in whatever colors are at my disposal. Foundation, very classic on blush and a lot of nude or neutral lip colours

Some days I’m like blending a transition color in the crease and suddenly decide to swipe it on the lid and call off the entire look. šŸ˜† But I have to have the eyes lined with something, due to the shape of my eyes and face I look odd almost without a lined eye.
I personally like a one matte eyeshadow look (especially with cooler tones on me) or a one shimmer eyeshadow look with a complex color (best example being MAC Satin Taupe).

I know I’m a little off topic, but this really makes me want to suggest a `Recommendations` vote on best products for one eyeshadow look to Christine.

Definitely, recommandations are very useful.

Recently I use the new Dior liners a lot : I just finished two in less than a year so that’s how much I love them ! They exist in an array of colors so if I don’t have the time for more than a swipe in the crease and liner, I can add a bit of colors.

I would say I’m pretty consistent in technique, but love to play around with color combos with my eyeshadows and different lips. I like when things contrast and don’t give a crap if my makeup goes with my outfit or if the lip matches the eyes or anything like that.

I love seeing make-up on people who experiment with contrast and don’t give a crap. I once saw a girl hiking on the trails, with proper hiking attire, but with a bold grey-purple lipstick (but with no visible eye or face make-up) and I was… `You go girl!`.
Maybe sometimes I’ll be rocking a shade like `Diva` or `Cyber` on the trails. šŸ˜€

Defined (but not intense) eyes, with bold color lips.

I don’t play around with make-up that much, sometimes I’ll watch make-up tutorials for a specific technique (but adapt colors with what works for me), for a specific color combo (but adapt application to my eye or face shape and what look good on me), for a specific vibe.
I rarely play with textures and undertones, but I don’t actually have an `everyday make-up`. In a given week I might wear eye liner once, a green eyeshadow look once, a neutral browns look once, a cool tone grey once; and that doesn’t count lipstick. šŸ˜€

So I would describe my style as all over the place, without being too creative / editorial / complex.

Transformative artistry? As in; Yes, I love to play with all sorts of colors and textures, but most of what I do is resculpting and transforming my features. Using different depths and finishes in the same color family has been a huge boon for me to reshape my hooded, almond shaped, small eyes into something quite different looking.

Mostly neutrals with pops of color or a general theme direction (e.g., warm browns and reds; or, adding in pinks and purples). My workplace is pretty conservative: how I dress (more creative, am in communications) and how I use makeup (full face every day) has me standing out as it is.
I’ll go brighter or more shimmery on weekends.

I think conservative would be a good word. I don’t do anything particularly editorial, out there or using any brighter colours. I think that although I support the idea of age not being a factor in determining what we wear, how we do our makeup, what colours we choose, etc. I do find that I tend to not be quite so adventurous. I really love it when I see other people wear these types of looks but where I live could be a factor also.

Minimalism plus kitschy details. Not too meticulous or glam but everything subtly precise. I always wear my skin and brows pretty fresh and natural, I don’t like them to look too done. And I don’t like too many heavily structural components to the makeup, like I dislike sharp, heavy eyeliner with a strong, crisp lip lately. I don’t want things to look totally pristine and un-lived in.

I find it hard to define my makeup style – but I always have a bold lip shade – I like browny coppers, russet red or berry shades on my lips. The lightest I go is ginger.
My eye looks are varied – ususally two to three eye colours in varying combinations – either neutral/smokey, copper shades with navy, green or brown, mint with teal – the combinations are endless. But no pinks, purples, oranges or reds.
Foundation is a must, with peachy blush.

I guess it’s how I feel that day, usually foundation. Also how much time I have to put it on. I have a little bit of time before work so I do basic stuff. Sometimes eye shadow. I have a few eye shadow palettes like Norvina which I try to use.

“Often matches whatever she’s wearing,” is probably the most accurate description. Often colorful, subtly glam.

Eclectic alternative glam is about as close as I ever come up with. Usually fun, dramatic, colorful, and use of unconventional colors, but still pretty. I also love a good retro pin-up look. Evan more low-key looks usually get some shimmer, bright or weird colored lip, colored mascara — something. But I go a little goth, a little punk, a little rock n roll, a little rainbow unicorn princess. It depends how I feel that day and what I’ve got going on.

Iā€™d describe my makeup style as mostly classic, natural and healthy, with an occasional tiny surprise thrown in- eyes tight lined with a vibrant purple, for example. I love defined brows, thick but natural eyelashes, rosy cheeks, and pretty, MLBB lips.

I love this question and everyone’s replies. It’s harder to answer than I thought – there’s what’s going on in my mind while I’m ‘creating’, and then, whatever somewhat else might notice when they see me (not too much, is my guess). Outside of work, my intent is ‘boho – glam’ – soft, undone hair, glowy skin, emphasis on eyes/lashes. Softer colors tend to look better on me, especially as I age, but a neutral eye will still have a strong outline. If I’m in the mood for a bold lip it usually ends up being a secret between me and my mirror, as it doesn’t last longer than an hour (I must be eating it off?) no matter what I do. Sometimes my partner comments if he sees me right after a bold lip experiment – “lipstick” is the comment :).
If I’m wearing a MLBB with the rest of my usual face, I get a real compliment. Who’s it for? 90% me, 10% how I feel when he sees me a certain way. At work w/ clients (as a therapist/dating coach) I moderate the gypsy, take down the wings, put the lashes on a diet, stay in neutral. The attention is on them.

Very interchangeable. I can go subtle one day and way out there the next. I am very fair with cool undertones and dark hair so there is pretty well nothing that I cannot wear. It just depends on my mood and what I am wearing. The new mascaras from Color Pop have my imagination going wild, I will be buying all the colors and, wearing them.

I’m a cool winter with hooded lids, so it’s snow white with cool lip shades and colourful gel eyeliners. And lots of concealer for the dark circles under my eyes.

Love reading everyone’s comments. I’m definitely more of a blown- out crease girl. I like neutrals, pinks, purples.
The best description is I have a ton of makeup but I don’t wear a ton of makeup on my face.

I love a simple eye look with warm color and I love shimmers. I often wear one shadow and just buff it up into the crease and have it stronger on the mobile lid. I also love a pop of color in the lower lash line. Blue or green smudged onto the lower lash line is a staple for me these days.

I have also love a bold lip and natural blush.

My style is trendy, experimental, and eclectic, but always wearable. I love to do colorful looks but they don’t look like what you see on Insta…they are more everyday. So not really any cut creases or wide wings. I also do neutral, deep, and pale looks. I do a full glam every single day, but it’s never the same thing twice. I am always trying something new. If I knew how to make that my career, I would.
