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

Your go-to coral lipstick? Milani Bold Color Statement Lipstick in I Am Happy. Most of the time I find coral lipsticks a bit too bright/white based to like how it looks on myself, but this lipstick has a great depth to it and is also a great color for fall too!

Your go-to pink blush? Laura Geller Baked Blush n Brighten in Peach Delight is about as pink of a blush that I have. Cool pinks don’t look great on my skintone (they pull super cool on me and look more bruise-like) and I also love how this blush has a pretty pink glow as well.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? I love copper eyeshadow in general, but my favorite is L’Oreal Infallible Amber Rush. It’s so versatile, can be lightly applied for a one shadow wash of color, or built up for a really intense shine. It’s so beautiful.

Geez, how did I forget Amber Rush in my list? I guess because I don’t use copper shades all that much, I forget that I have it. I really should use it more; maybe with autumn coming, I’ll remember it more.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name. Green eyes, s&p hair

Your go-to coral lipstick? I have two: MAC See Sheer and MAC Crosswires. Lately, I’ve been reaching for See Sheer more often.

Your go-to pink blush? My two current favorite pinks are Colourpop Mini Me and Chanel Pink Explosion.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? I rarely ever use copper.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Your go-to coral lipstick? I don’t look good in coral so don’t have a go to coral lipstick
Your go-to pink blush? Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Tough one as I’m never sure of the distinctions between copper, bronze, coppery brown, etc. but I’ll go with Pat McGrath Copperized or UD Casterly Rock (is that copper? copper-y? – like I said, I’m not very good at this).

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair skin/blue eyes/walnut hair

Your go-to coral lipstick? I just got YSL’s Rouge Volupte in Corail a Porter and it’s wildly pretty. So slippy and glowy and summery, with a wonderful coral-plus-candy hue. Love it.

Your go-to pink blush? Benefit Posietint, really the only blush I wear

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? I got the XX Urban Decay Vintage vault, which has a pan of the original UD shade Rust. I use that enough that I’ve hit pan on it. It will once again be unavailable! It’s tied for first with that classic L’Oreal Infallible Amber Rush. I use both frequently because they kind of intensify my eye color.

Omg, I loved Rust. They had a lipstick, too. Light orange rust with green sparkles. TDF. It fell down inside a chair, and I almost ripped the chair apart, as it was d/c’d. And probably would have, had it been my chair….Never found even a 70% dupe for it. I’d jump on a reissue instantly.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC La Vie En Rouge and Too Faced Shimmering Spice Spice Baby.

Your go-to pink blush? My Pretty Zombie Drugs Like Me Blush in MDMA, MAC Pink Sprinkles, MAC Pink Cult, Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Blush in Rose, and Tarte Dollface.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Shimmer — TheBalm Betty Lou-manizer Bronzer/Eyeshadow. Metallic — LORAC Unleashed. Matte — ABH Morocco.

The doorbell rang, and I forgot my usual disclaimer: MPZ’s owner is a pharmacist, and her Drugs Like Me blushes are inspired by her work. She does not promote or condone illicit/unnecessary drug use.

The Drugs Like Me blushes are so good. I have a few colors, but I want to get more with the next order. I need to test the samples I bought first to see if some of them will work for me.

Your skin tone/coloring: By my name! (Blue-green eyes)

Your go-to coral lipstick? Sooo many! MAC La Vie En Rose, Make Me Gorgeous and UD Tryst are 3 I reguraly use. But today I layered MAC Vegas Volt over UD Wildfire and WOWZERS! What a perfect shade of coral!

Your go-to pink blush? MAC Sweet Visions.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Again, so many! I’m not at home right now, so I cannot get official names for many of them, but the 2 copper shades in PMG Metalmorphosis MTHRSHP, the copper in Viseart Minx Theory Palette, also, the one in ND Lila, Magnolia, I think it’s called? All of the shimmers in Smashbox x Vlada Covershot palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light medium, yellow undertones. Dark brown hair & eyes.

Your go-to coral lipstick? Guerlain Rouge Automatique Coque D’Or for a red coral, Wet n Wild Coral of the Story mega slicks balm stain for an orange coral and about a million pink corals that I cannot even begin to list here 🙂

Your go-to pink blush? The Balm Down Boy.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Colourpop Moscow Mule, which sadly was LE. But it’s smashing.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20, med brown hair and eyes, oily skin

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC Sunny Seoul or Flamingo

Your go-to pink blush? Origins Pinch Your Cheeks Blush in Rose Dust or MAC Pro Longwear Blush in Stay Pretty

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Loreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush or MAC Amber Lights

♠ Your skin tone/coloring: Below my name!

♥ Your go-to coral lipstick? I avoid coral lipstick, as it does strange things in proximity to my yellow skin

♣ Your go-to pink blush? Benefit “Dandelion”; when I run out (in the next couple months) my go-to will be Silk Naturals’ “Lady”

♦ Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Tough one … a toss up between ColourPop’s White Rabbit and Shiro Cosmetics’ “Burn Yourself At Both Ends” — it would depend in the moment whether I preferred cream or powder, and what tone I was going for (White Rabbit is brighter and more pink-copper, Burn Yourself is more brassy).

Skin tone: under my name. I feel pretty lucky as I stalk comments btw… can almost order online without trying…with a 20% chance of oxidation risk. BUT, i also “pull” colors a certain way…which leads to the next answer. I’d love to find one though

Coral lipstick: still looking, after 10 plus years. Everything pulls orange…like a clown. I seriously envy those that have one. I try samples sitting around the house and my husband and friends ask about it…not in a good way. The husband says, simply…just stop. The friends….that just isn’t you. Not one has been successful.

Pink blush…CT Pillow Talk, NARS Sin & Outlaw…they show up pink! I am pretty good at finding the blush look and understanding how it oxidizes on me.

Copper…still searching. It’s hard because copper colors are pulling real orange these days. I have variations I like…ABH, PMG, ND, one CP..,even CT Dolce Vita…that I have to really work at. My dream would be the CT pop from DV or whatever she’s calling it…sounds like she pissed her fam off…and turn that shade into something amazing. I wasted time and money on that quest trying to find something that did what I wanted that shade to do. Only CP came close.

Which sucks…because my dream easy eye look would be a great neutral coppery shadow. My mom had a L’Oreal shadow that did this in the early eighties when I snuck into her makeup. With this applicator you stuck your finger in and just swiped.

Your skin tone/coloring: Listed above
Your go-to coral lipstick: I look hideous in coral lipstick so I avoid it.
Your go-to pink blush: Life-Size from the Trixie Mattel × Sugarpill palette. It’s a nice vibrant, watermelon pink & I wear it weekly. It’ll probably take me years to pan though lol It’s huge & so pigmented!
Your go-to copper eyeshadow: Red Keep from the GoT × Urban Decay palette. It just really pops!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light
Your go-to coral lipstick?
Your go-to pink blush? Tarte Birthday Suit
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? MAC Creative Copper

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones
Your go-to coral lipstick? Not for me, but my daughter in law LOVES Too Faced’s Honey Bear and Clarin’s Joli Rouge Coral Tulip.
Your go-to pink blush? Nope, no pink blush
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? OMG – I am so entranced with copper eyeshadows that it is hard to name just one (or three), here goes:
UD Half Baked (kinda gold copper)
Lorac Amber
City Colour Cheers to Life and Cleo
bareMinerals Louder
ABH Steampunk
And if I could have got my hands on Colour Pop’s Snakebite before they d/c’d it so darn quickly, I would have.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral/ slightly pinkish skin tone/ dark brown hair/brown eyes
Your go-to coral lipstick? NARS audacious Jane (it’s more terracotta but close enough? but its also one of my more flattering lipsticks. and I dont have many actual coral lipsticks since they often don’t work for me, but Jane gives me that orange tint in a flattering way)
Your go-to pink blush? I haven’t tried many I got a freebee NARS orgasm and it works fine so I havent been motivated to really branch out much.
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? I have so many, copper is one of my favourite shades, so it is well represented. I have an ND palette 5 with coppers and greens which i would probably grab if i was interested in a cooler copper, (it also matches my copper and green stone necklace I wear a lot).

Coral Lipstick – Oh my gosh I have a ton that lean both pink and orange depending on what else I have on. My favorite formula right now is the peripera gelato… but really like the airy ink velvet in “beautiful coral pink”. I also super love Bite Beauty’s Sucre. I’m a fan of NARS Catherine for a more orange leaning coral. I also have some coral leaning periperi and the J.One Haart tinted lip balm.

Pink blush – I don’t tend to use pink blush. I go more mauve and peach to negate some of my natural redness. But I do use the pinks from Nomad’s Around the World palette on occasion.

Copper eyeshadow – Definitely Pat McGrath. I think all three palletes I have of hers (Bronze Ambition, Metamorphosis , and Bronze Seduction) have shades of copper in them. No one else does metallics that match hers (which makes my wallet weep especially after recent price hikes). I keep trying to think of something more original… but hers win hands-down.

Skin tone: Under my name.
Go to coral lipstick: I don’t wear a lot of coral so the closest I can come is MAC Party Parrot. It leans a little more pink and for me that works better.

Go to pink blush: Chantecaille Bliss which is the “butterfly” shade that is part of Chantecaille’s Philanthropy series.

Go to copper e/s: Pat McGrath Copperized.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium-tan, neutral undertones

Your go-to coral lipstick? No coral for me, not my type of color. Plus it washes me out

Your go-to pink blush? Urban Decay Rapture. It’s more of a purple shade if a build it up, but applied lightly (as I usually do) it gives a pretty pink sheen

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Urban Decay Toasted. I’m not even a huge fan of metallic shades these days, but I make an exception for this shade. I love the pink undertone in it too
