MAC Show Gold to shine bright like an irl Instagram. Rituel de Fille Solaris for a lit from within luminous flushed glow. Becca Amethyst for an icy pearly sheen.

Fascinating, Blue. Your HL answer is a brilliant example for what I’ve always thought. If you love s.t., you can see and make itty bitty differentiations that others would in no way see or appreciate. Some people (probably not here, where product, performance, and alternatives are featured) actually think ‘Yeah’ or Nah’ derived from suitability to them personally. You not only get the forest, you see the trees, too.

Exactly! Around here a lot of use have pretty specific categories of product we love that we tend to buy variations of. To other people, our six cool red lipsticks probably blur into one signature lip color, but to us they are meaningfully different and uniquely beautiful!

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones.

Favourite blue eyeshadow? I am partial to blue eyeshadows, and I love a good navy one – but alas and alack, they are hard to find. Currently my favourites are:
1. Guerlain Les Gris – the darkish navy blue shade with a slightly frosted finish. Very pretty and subtle on the eyes.
2. UD Madness from Vice 2 – is a medium blue, with cool undertones and easy to apply and wear.
3. Lorac Pro Metal – the cobalt shade is a medium navy blue
4. Guerlain’s Les Aquas has a medium dark bold blue that is lovely to wear.
The best blue eyeshadow that I have seen lately would be the PMG Lapis Luxury shade.

Favourite red lipstick? It’s hard for me to wear a red lipstick (which I do love) because so many turn pink on me. But the one that doesn’t is Clarin’s Joli Rouge Lipstick in Forever Red.

Favourite everyday highlighter? Nope, I don’t use a highlighter.

Your skin tone/coloring: Pale/neutral, NC10, with dirty blonde hair and green eyes
Favorite blue eyeshadow? Barnacle, by Menagerie Cosmetics (is it green or blue?)
Favorite red lipstick? Bawse Lady by the Lip Bar
Favorite everyday highlighter? The shimmer side of the Soft Peach Cover FX blush duo, especially if I want something super fast.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands. My everyday base products are Fenty-Amber Match Stick as cheek contour and Pro Filt’r concealer and Soft Matte foundation in 110.
Favorite blue eyeshadow? I have too many blue eyeshadows to pick one favorite! UD Chaos is reliable, though. I’ve also been liking NARS x Erdem Flourish lately.
Favorite red lipstick? Again, too many of them for me to pick just one favorite, but I’ve liked Fenty Poutsicle Hot Blooded lately.
Favorite everyday highlighter? ColourPop x Disney Designer Midnight Masquerade Andalasia.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, neutralish, dark brown hair, but I like to change so right now it’s an odd mix, waiting to be re coloured. 😀 It’s natural, dark red, warm reddish brown (from root to tops).
Favorite blue eyeshadow? No, I don’t have one as I so rarely use blue, I might try it every other year or so.
Favorite red lipstick? Too many to list, but UD F-Bomb in the Revolution formula is one, others are MAC Brave Red, MAC Betty Boop, UD Gash, MAC Ruby, MAC Red Rock PmG Major Red (one of three I have managed to break this year, something that’s not happened in decades) and many more. What can I say, I love red lips.
Favorite everyday highlighter? Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Ethereal Light, I like very subtle highlighting, but sometime use shimmerier ones.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light with red undertones
Favorite blue eye shadow? Luckfully by ColourPop
Favorite red lipstick? Bichette by ColourPop
Favorite everyday highlighter? Becca Moonstone

I’m very fair with cool undertones (MAC NW10) and my favorite red lipsticks are Velvet Jazz by Lisa Eldridge and Besame Cosmetics Cherry Red.

On the rare occasions that I wear blue on my eyes, it’s always navy because it makes my dark brown eyes pop and usually liner rather than shadow.

My favorite everyday highlight is either Natasha Denona Super Glow in Fair, Becca’s Pearl or the lightest shade in MAC’S Flash & Awe palette

Favorite blue eyeshadow? Norrsken No4 from the Nomad Cosmetics Stockholm single shadow set has to be my favorite. The picture they have on the website is lighter and more like a royal blue, but in person it’s a dark blue with a hint of violet

Favorite red lipstick? For a lighter cherry red Laniege’s Two Tone Tint Lip Bar in Apple Jell-O, for a deeper, darker red Urban Decay’s Bad Blood

Favorite everyday highlighter? Wet ‘n Wild Megaglo Highlighter in Precious Petals
