How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Not very often. If I wear something glittery it’s usually a very fine glitter. I usually stick to shimmer and metallics, though.

Mine is also bite beauty Virgo! I think it’s a perfect red that’s not an ‘in-your-face red’ if that makes sense. I grabbed two since it was limited edition.

What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? I haven’t tried too many golds, it’s not a eyeshadow color that works for me. I navigate more towards bronze (I liked Urban Decay Dirtysweet from the Naked Smoky palette, but my favorite is MAC Woodwinked)

How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Never, I don’t wear glitter at all.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
What’s your go-to red lipstick? Chanel Pirate or Smashbox Legendary (or maybe UD’s Mrs. Mia Wallace) – I guess I have a bit of a love affair with red lipsticks
What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? UD Strike, Pat McGrath Gilt Trip or the golden shade in Chanel Empreinte du Desert
How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Glitter, not too often (though I love some of the Tarte glittery powder and pot/cream shadows – not sure if they count as “glitter”) but shimmer, all the time

I have a few: MAC Von Teese, MAC Viva Glam Sia, UD Vice Lipstick in Mrs. Mia Wallace, J* Velour Liquid Lipstick in Redrum, Knock Out Beauty by Sonia Kashuk Matte Lipstick in Power Punch, and Too Faced La Matte in Rebel Heart. Go-to sparkly reds right now are Too Faced Throwback Lipstick in Too Too Hot and Ciate Glitter Storm Lipstick in Jessica Rabbit.

How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? I wear sparkly shadows and shadows with microglitter pretty regularly. Full on glitter — Once in a while on my lids, lower lash line, or inner corner. I use a good glitter glue primer underneath to ensure it doesn’t move and fall into my eyes. I’ve had no problems so far.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair slightly yellow-toned skin, brunette hair, grey eyes
What’s your go-to red lipstick? ‘ve been loving the Brick Red from the Clinique x Crayola collab, and Urban Decay’s Mrs. Mia Wallace
What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? I don’t think I’ve ever tried a BAD gold eyeshadow!
How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Since I bought Tati’s Textured Neutrals palette I admit I’ve been wearing glitter about twice a week, but this is very new for me.

The absolute best red for my skintone (NC45) is a DC lipstick from Hourglass, Icon. The newer version is brighter. A very close second is Coloured Raine Cherry Blossom. CR sells the color in a bullet (sating/matte), liquid matte and liquid shine finish. I have all finishes and they’re great. The only reason why I put Hourglass first is the finish and smoothness in application. CR bullet finish is more matte.

Best gold is LMdB Goldstone.

I’m not a fan of glitter shadow.

Medium, neutral-warm
Go to red lipstick – Bite crystal in Cherry on Top, Sephora lipstories, Hong Kong by Night topped with gold gloss, PMG gold.
The best gold shadow I have tried – Natasha Denona’s. the Gold palette is my HG golds. Love all the gold shades in there.
How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow. I don’t. Aren’t they not supposed to be safe for eyes?

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep dark neutral
What’s your go-to red lipstick? Pat McGrath Elson or NYX Cherry Skies
What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? Colour Pop The Six
How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Usually only for special occasions (birthdays, holidays)

Skin tone: light-medium olive with a slightly yellow undertone.
Go-to red: Bite Crushed Chilli, sheered out on me it looks more like a berry or at full opacity a beautiful mid toned red.
Gold eyeshadow: Urban Decay Half Baked or the Amrezy highlighter.
I never wear glitter eyeshadow, occasionally a liner.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

What’s your go-to red lipstick? Clarin’s Joli Rouge Red Terra. I have a love/hate relationship with red lipsticks – I love them, but so often they turn pink on me eg Maybelline’s Red Revival, EA’s Red Door etc.
I probably should try Rimmel’s Kate Moss’s Red. I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a red lipstick eg Chanel, if it is going to turn pinky….

What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? It’s pretty hard to leave it at one:
UD – Half Baked
City Color Cleo
Lorac Amber and Gilded

How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow?
Never!

Your skin tone/coloring:light, MAC NC 15-20

What’s your go-to red lipstick? Don’t have one. Red is not my favorite type of lip shade

What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? MAC I Like 2 Watch or Sea Worship. Stila La Douce
How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Not often

Your skin tone/coloring: Foundation shade is warm beige

What’s your go-to red lipstick? Marc Jacobs Goddess though when it is done I’d like to own NARS Cruella lip pencil again.

What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? Urban Decay Half Baked. I did also like Whenever You Call by MAC (from the In That Chick you Like quad) but that was LE.

How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? Not often.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/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
What’s your go-to red lipstick? I have so many reds that I find it hard to pick a go-to. That said, if I want to wear a red lip but I’m running short on time, L’Oreal Colour Riche Collection Exclusive Eva’s Red is probably the easiest-wearing red in my collection.
What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? Too Faced Twinkie from the Then & Now palette and Leigh’s Locket from the Tarte of Giving 2013 palette (an Easter gift from an aunt who’d never used it) both tend to work well on me. I also like the pale gold from a 6-shade LA Colors palette I got in the FYX: Bronze gift box several years ago.
How often do you wear glitter eyeshadow? I don’t know how to answer this question. If a shimmer shadow has a microglitter in it, I guess that’s when I wear glitter eyeshadow.

What’s your go-to red lipstick? Uncensored – Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint
What’s the best gold eyeshadow you’ve tried? Rose from the Coloured Raine Cheers to the beauty palette

Coloring– fair neutral with olive undertone, hazel eyes, dark brown hair with gray.
Favorite red lipstick, Chanel Coromandel, Bite Beauty Scorpio, a red orange, and Shu Uemura has wonderful true reds (away from my stash so can’t give the numbers.) I like warm reds.

I wear gold a lot. Chanel’s Codes Elegants is such an under-rated palette (though not by you, Christine). Three golds and a brown deepener, and none of them is that over-orangey shade. Wearing it today to a friend’s wedding. My other favorite is Cle de Peau’s 309 palette, which is a little hard to track down. It’s three golds, mostly cool, with a Burgundy deepener– the quality is so excellent.

Glitter– never.

Coloring– Deep, warm with yellow undertones.
Favorite red lipstick – I still love MAC Ruby Woo I have to moisturize beforehand and be uber careful with application but after that it doesn’t move all day and gives me the prettiest red.
I wear gold a lot but my favorite right now is Colourpop SSS Here we go again. It’s super easy to apply, lasts all day and blends out well with a crease shade. I love it.
Glitter– I never wear glitter lots of shimmers and microshimmers but I don’t do glitter.
