Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain

Favorite red lipstick? Besame Noir Red, Pretty Zombie Cosmetics Vamp.

Favorite glitter beauty product? Urban Decay Vice lip topcoats. I’ve found they apply well if you use your finger to pat them on rather than using the applicator.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? UD Shellshock from the Vice 2 palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Favorite red lipstick? Chanel Pirate slightly edges out my other two favorites: MAC Russian Red and Guerlain Rouge G #21. (There are others, but I’ll keep it simple.)

Favorite glitter beauty product? I don’t use glitter.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? I think there are silver shadows in some of my palettes, but I don’t use them. I don’t know why. Well, now I think I need to experiment with silver eyeshadow!

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium-deep/deep
Favorite red lipstick? Elson – Pat McGrath, Tiana – Colourpop, Chanel Dragon Rouge Allure Laque (I really wish they would bring this back. It was my holiest of holy grails!)
Favorite glitter beauty product? See-Quins Eyeshadows from Marc Jacobs
Favorite silver eyeshadow? Star Light – Jouer

Your skin tone/coloring: Next to my name! (blue-green eyes, too)

Favorite red lipstick? Haha! Too many! My newest favorite is MAC x Patrick Starrr called Slay Ride, because it is a somewhat softer, darker tone of blue-red as opposed to Russian Red. I still adore my VG I, Maria Moretti and Como La Flor, though.

Favorite glitter beauty product? Either a glittery lipgloss made so well that I barely notice it has glitter in it (if at all) or a glitter eyeshadow, since I am quite adept at using these with either a glitter glue or a brush dampened with MAC Fix +.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? An oldie, but goodie, Nyx Beanie! It’s actually more of silvery lavender bordering on light purple-taupe. As for true silver eyeshadow, I really hate it on me. It makes my eyes look funky usually. I can only use a tiny bit of it in a purple or blue & green look.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC30/35ish but less orange and more yellow/olive

Favorite red lipstick? MAC chili

Favorite glitter beauty product? ILNP nail polishes. I have some Stila Liquid shadows with glitter, and I learned that glitter isn’t really something I like on my face.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? Pat McGrath Sterling from Metamorphosis Holiday 2018

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Favorite red lipstick? Bite Beauty Virgo and Sephora Creme Stain Lipstick in 01.

Favorite glitter beauty product? Stila Glitter and Glow in Perlina and Dose of Colors Eyedeal Duo in Shell.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? Silver Mauve in the Lorac Pro Palette 4 and Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Koosh.

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

Favorite red lipstick? Too many to choose! Coque D’or Guerlain Rouge Automatic for a juicy, shimmery red, Bite Beauty Sour Cherry for a cool toned power red, Colopurpop Ambush Ultra Satin and I’m also really loving Colourpop Skywalking lippie stix.

Favorite glitter beauty product? Stila Glitter & Glow eyeshadow in Kitten Karma.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? I don’t tend to wear silver eyeshadow. Pat McGrath Platinize from the Platinum Bronze palette is about as silvery as I go…

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite red lipstick? Smashbox Red Rage
Favorite glitter beauty product? I don’t use loose glitter but for glittery pressed “stuff”, right now I am loving the glittery shades from ABH’s Sultry palette, especially Rose Quartz
Favorite silver eyeshadow? even though I have quite a few in palettes, I’m not crazy about silver eyeshadow so I don’t think I have a favourite.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ neutral undertones, blue eyes, dark brown hair.

Favorite red lipstick? Bite Virgo, Revlon Bombshell Red. Really, I’m a sucker for any deep, blue-leaning red.

Favorite glitter beauty product? I don’t really do much glitter.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? I only own a couple as I tend to wear champagne or gold more, but Gemini from the BH Zodiac palette has good color payoff and plays nicely with others.

𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐞/𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠: Very fair with neutral undertones; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐝 𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐤? MAC Von Teese; UD Mrs. Mia Wallace; UD F-Bomb; UD 69; Sonia Kashuk Knock Out Beauty Matte Lipstick in Power Punch; Sephora Collection #Lipstories Hong Kong By Night.

𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐠𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐛𝐞𝐚𝐮𝐭𝐲 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭? Too Faced Throwback Lipsticks; Ciate Glitter Flips; Wet N Wild Midnight Mermaid Collection’s ColorIcon Metallic Liquid Eyeshadows; KVD Everlasting Glimmer Veils (though I not buying from KVD any more, I still must admit I love the ones I have).

𝐅𝐚𝐯𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐞 𝐬𝐢𝐥𝐯𝐞𝐫 𝐞𝐲𝐞𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐝𝐨𝐰? ColourPop SSS in Liberty ; ColourPop Thingamabob from the It’s a Princess Thing Palette; UD Glamrock from the Heavy Metals Palette; Coloured Raine Flashing Lights.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite red lipstick? MAC Fresh Moroccan, Clarins Joli Rouge Red Terra – I have to be careful with red lipsticks that they don’t turn pink on me.

Favourite glitter beauty product? I’m not a fan of glitter on my eyes, too worried about it getting into them.
But I do like metallic shades – Sultry, Lorac’s Pro Metal palette.

Favourite silver eyeshadow? I probably don’t use geniune silver eyeshadow as such, more of a silvery pewter or grey – Shellshock UD would be the closest silvery eyeshadow I own and I only reach for it very rarely. But silvery grey? Love the shade – Cyborg from Sultry, UD Naked 2 in Pistol and Verve.

Your skin tone/coloring: ^
Favorite red lipstick? NARS Dragon Girl
Favorite glitter beauty product? If I had to pick one… my stash would be 30-some products smaller and I’d be really bummed out, but I would totally choose LIT Champagne Wishes glitter. For people who prefer shimmer sized particles, Fenty Confetti doesn’t really wear that well but routinely gets me compliments from random people.
Favorite silver eyeshadow? Plot twist, it’s an eyeliner! UD Cuff pencil is one of my go-to inner corner products.

Lt to med, red u/t: KGD 013. Red l/s: seriously, I must have 50 faves. Brown reds are prob the most used, as most neutral, but ALL OF THEM. Esp Pat and Nars. Glitter: a tad too old for it, and deselecting metallic a lot, too. Occ do glitter liner, or a pop in the center. Silver? I like the mentioned ones: Verve, Pistol, Shellshock (Boy, that’s loud!). But much prefer gray and taupe gray.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Neutral Nars Punjab
Favorite red lipstick? MAC RED, Nars Cruella and I have Nars Shirley coming soon and I hope I love it bc I love the audacious formula!
Favorite glitter beauty product? MAC Pressed Glitter Shadows and Stila Glitter and Glow
Favorite silver eyeshadow? It is a way discontinued Revlon eyeshadow that I used in high school ( late 90s). There’s also one in a limited edition Dior Holiday quint as well.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20
Favorite red lipstick? Do I have one? Does MAC Viva Glam VI count. It’s more a browny nude w a bit of red but it’s not a true red by any means

Favorite glitter beauty product? Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Sailor. Cyborg from ABH Sultry palette. MAC Pressed Pigment in Day Gleam

Favorite silver eyeshadow: Again, Cyborg from ABH Sultry

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural, NARS Radiant Natural Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist 2), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and blonde and blue strands
Favorite red lipstick? That’s a tough one. I can’t really say I have a favorite, but the last one I wore was CoverGirl Katy Kat Pearl Red-y to Pounce.
Favorite glitter beauty product? Any that doesn’t shed too much.
Favorite silver eyeshadow? Urban Decay Revolt.

Skin tone: Very fair with neutral undertones.

Favorite red lipstick: Gosh how to limit it to one? PML Elson, Chanel No 5 is my newest red and I love it. Fenty Stunna in Uncensored which is a formula I can wear with a little gloss and finally an oldie but a goodie, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red.

Favorite glitter beauty product: Marc Jacobs See-Quins in all shades. That’s right, I couldn’t restrain myself and bought them all for myself and my daughter.

Favorite silver eyeshadow: I have a lot that I love including some in my PML palettes but for this purpose I am going to stick with a favorite that has been my favorite for many years and that is the Ellis Faas E301 in Antique Silver. It is just the right tone of silver for my skin tone.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, warm ~NC10; blue eyes, light blond hair with copper highlights
Favorite red lipstick? Bite Sour Cherry
Favorite glitter beauty product? Bite prismatic pearl lipgloss in Gold (I don’t have outright glitter, but this is super shimmery so close)
Favorite silver eyeshadow? None — I haven’t seen a silver that suits my coloring

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral olive– dark brown hair and eyes

Favorite red lipstick? Nars Light My Fire TF Ben (a red-brown) and YSL Metallic Red Also like Bite Scorpio though more a red orange. PMG Elson is good too.

Favorite glitter beauty product? Is Chanel Codes Elegant a glitter? I love those golds. I have the Stila Eye things in pink and lavender bur rarely use them.

Favorite silver eyeshadow? I’m more into pale golds, greeny-golds, etc than silver. The only silver that comes to mind is in a Denona five pan palette that also has Stormy Blue.
