Your skin tone/coloring: Below my name.

Favorite eyeshadow finish? Shimmer, but due to my bone structure, there are spots where it doesn’t look good.

Favorite blush finish? Satin

Favorite lipstick finish? I don’t know what it would be called. Not shiny and not matte. I guess that would be satin?

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Favorite eyeshadow finish? something with sheen but not chunky, fallout prone glitter. MAC’s Veluxe Pearl and Inglot Pearl are 2 perfect examples of what I like best.
Favorite blush finish? again, something with a bit of sheen like the MAC In Extra Dimension blushes or some of the older Mineralize blushes and more pigmented “highlighters” that work for me as blushes
Favorite lipstick finish? creamy, moist and hydrating – MAC’s Amplified Cream and the now d/c’d Givenchy Rouge Interdit Satin finishes are perfect. Keep matte lipsticks and those liquid lipsticks that have the feel and look of a Sharpie marker AWAY from me!

Your skin tone/coloring: about NW20, brown hair blue eyes

Favorite eyeshadow finish? Heavy, intense shimmers that borderline on glitter, formulas like the ultra-glitter Colourpop Super Shock Shadows or the Clionadh Glitter Multichromes

Favorite blush finish? During the spring and summer I prefer a glowy, satin blush, but I tend more towards matte blushes in fall and winter

Favorite lipstick finish? Creamy or glossy, my perfect in-between is a moisturizing lip tint that has the pigmentation of a traditional cream but gives the shine of a gloss

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, neutral, dark brown hair, eyes depends on light and what eye shadow I use, greenish grey.

The answer for all three answers is matte. Shimmers and sparkles are not my preference or style, and most times they don’t flatter me. I don’t mind satin finishes, they sometimes add a nice look, but matte will always be my go-to.
Fortunately there are nowadays many great quality matte formulas, that don’t look flat and aren’t drying.

For coloring, etc please see by my name.

Favorite eyeshadow finish: Duochrome or shimmer
Favorite blush finish: Cream
Favorite lipstick finish: Satin
