Most used eye product this month? Lorac Pro 4 palette (I love those rosy tones!) and Natasha Denona Star Palette.

Medium Warm (MAC NC30)

Favorite product this month: For skincare it’s Josh Rosenbrook’s Hydrating Accelerator. I have combination skin, aging, with menopausal acne. Even though my skin is combo with acne, I still get dry from glycolic acid and Retin A. When my skin is dry and needs some pampering, I use hydrating Accelerator as my toner, and then apply Advanced Night Repair, Protini, and Marula oil. My skin LOVES this combination once a week.

For color cosmetics my favorite is Dior Addict Laquer Stick in Turn Me Dior.

Most used eye product: Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye palette.

Favorite product this month? Ciate Fearless palette. I love that the powder is extremely smooth and soft but not at all powdery. Blendable, pigmented. I can pretty much use every single complimentary word on it. And the silver grey shade has so much dimension to it I am dying over its beauty.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Hourglass ambient edit vol.3.
Most used eye product this month? Laura Mercier Amethyst caviar stick. This is my go to for office simple one and done looks.

How do you use the Caviar Stick? I have the same one and can use some tips on how to apply it. It’s so pretty, but I’m a little awkward at using non-powder shadows.

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair, green eyes, dirty blond

Favorite product this month? Clinique blush in… Peach? Gorgeous finish and very natural shade on me. I got my hands on it during the last vacation 💕

Most used face/cheek product this month? Without a doubt my Chanel camelia highlighter! I took a tiny makeup bag during my 3 weeks vacation and used it almost daily, and often on the eyes too. It is so beautiful when packed on the inner third of the lid!

Most used eye product this month? The custom palette filled with viseart shadows I took on vacation with me!

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

Favorite product this month? My foundation – I mixed it up with several different products and now I have excellent coverage with the finish I like that lasts all day. The bottle is a bit messy but I can live with it 😉

Most used face/cheek product this month? Natasha Denona Duo Glow Shimmer in Alba

Most used eye product this month? The Balm Nude Beach eyeshadow palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w olive undertones, MAC NC37, Lancome Teint Idole 24H Foundation N360, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w gold flecks.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Other than my Lancome Teint Idole 24H Foundation, probably MAC Oh My, Passion and Ofra Glazed Donut highlighter.

Most used eye product this month? Everything green, lately! I’ve been on a green eye look kick of late, with occasional bronzey smoked eyes. Today, I went very purple using Lila, Lila mini, plus a light shimmery shade by ColourPop.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite product this month? It would have to be my newish Maybelline’s Burgundy Bar and MAC’s Fresh Moroccan lipstick.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Designer Brands Velvet Matte foundation in porcelain ivory and Clarins Prodige blush in sweet peach.

Most used eye product this month? It’s been equal parts of bareMinerals The Playlist and Soft and Smokey and the Burgundy Bar.

Favorite Eye Product: ABH Norvina Palette

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, neutral
Favorite product this month? Buxom va va plump in “Wine Me” mostly because I wasn’t expecting to like it since I don’t usually go for bright colors. I have a mini from a GWP and might buy the full-size if I ever finish the mini.
Most used face/cheek product this month? Becca Moonstone SSP
Most used eye product this month? Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. I’ve heard mixed reviews, so I was skeptical, but I really enjoy this!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light to Med. Light
Favorite product this month?-Eminence wildflower face oil- Reminds me of the La Mer face oil, just much cheaper in price, Dior Backstage foundation in 1 Rosy Cool- I found that the 1 Neutral color has too much yellow for me, and Mahalo Skin Care Petal mask and Coffee mask- heavenly!
Most used face/cheek product this month? Hourglass powder blush trio and Chanel gel bronzer, and samples from La Prarie foundation and ND new matte foundation. Love the La Prarie one of course 🙄
Most used eye product this month?- Bobbi Brown cream shadows because they stay put in warm weather. I will apply a Bobbi Brown sparkle stick on the lid over the cream shadow for some dimension, but basically light makeup looks. Also using Marc Jacobs eye palettes Frivoluxe and Scandalust. Just bought some of his single shadows from the VIB Rouge sale so can’t wait to try those!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, neutral to warm undertones
Favorite product this month? Delilah Sunset Matte Bronzer in light-medium
Most used face/cheek product this month? Delilah Sunset Matte Bronzer in light-medium
Most used eye product this month? Kjaer Weis eye shadow in Grace

Girl after my own heart! KW shadow in Grace, along with Cloud Nine, is an all-time favourite (along with Embrace blush, Paper Thin foundation, Radiance highlight, dazzling bronze contour/bronzer and lip colour in Believe). And yes, KW mascara… 😉

Your skin tone/coloring: Warm but very fair with a touch of red. Didn’t it sound more romantic as peaches and cream? Yes, it did.
Favorite product this month? C’mon Sis Limited Edition Lipstick by ColourPop
Most used face/cheek product this month? Aussie Gold Tinted SPF 50+ broad spectrum sunscreen!

Most used eye product this month? Lise Watier Chic Glam eyeshadow stick as a base with Nars Kalahari over-top (left side on mobile lid and right side in crease). I am so eager for the “new” Nars shadows to arrive at Sephora (if they ever do) so I can replenish Kalahari.

Your skin tone/coloring: light yellow/gold

Favorite product this month? I randomly renewed my love for Concrete Minerals’ Ice Queen lip balm — wore it with Wet N Wild’s Halo Walkers and had a wonderful icy day in the summer heat.

Most used face/cheek product this month? This is getting repetitive — Fenty’s Chili Mango.

Most used eye product this month? ABH’s contour powder in Cream Soda. When I use this up I’m going to switch to one of the bronzers from the Wet N Wild dragons kit for my default don’t-want-to-think-about-it, one-and-done eyeshadow look.
