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

Favorite product this month? I can’t think of a specific makeup product, but I’m loving Klorane Centaury Shampoo this month.

Most used face/cheek products this month? Estee Lauder Double Wear Makeup, NARS Orgasm blush

Most used eye products this month? There were three products that I used almost every day: Diorshow Brow Styler, Clinique Brow Shaper, NYX Proof It Waterproof Eyeshadow Primer (works great as a brow product base).

Skin tone, colouring: Fair with neutral undertones, very dry.

Favorite product: Blithe Tundra Chaga. Not sure why I am liking this so much but my skin just feels amazing after using it. I have also been enjoying the Dr. Jart Cicapair Calming Mist. I couldn’t find this mist here in the US and the only on-line resource that would ship to the US was out of stock and had been for awhile. I had Toshiya at Fudejapan purchase for me and ship with my last order. I am really loving it. It is very soothing.

Most used face and cheek product: Thrive Causemetics BB cream in Light. I am not wowed by it but it works okay. At this point, I am mostly just trying to use it up. I think it is probably a good BB cream but it doesn’t offer enough coverage for me. I do like the Boscia BB cream but I think this one is just so-so.

Most used eye product: Marc Jacobs See-Quinns in pretty much every colour. I wasn’t wowed with the purple one but when I used it over a black base it quickly became one of my favorites. It is gorgeous and I have Karima McKimmie to thank for enabling me in buying all of the shades!!

Medium Warm (MAC NC37)

Favorite product this month: I only bought two makeup products this month, so if the two, the Huda Nude Palette is definitely the best one. The other product, Born This Way Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer is an excellent product, and for those that like concealer I could imagine this could quickly rise to Holy Grail status, but I am just not a concealer girl and never have been. But that Huda Palette, just like the Rose Gold and Desert Dusk predecessors, is a great palette. Huda’s large palettes always work well for me.

Most used face/cheek products: Lancome Teint Idole Ulta foundation mixed with Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin and Kora Noni Glow Oil (my holiday cocktail for beautiful skin). For cheeks: NARS Taos and Anastasia’s Amrezy.

Most used eye product: Pat McGrath Mothership V.

I find that the Born This Way Multi-Use Sculpting Concealer works great as a foundation as well! I took it in my carry-on on my latest travel, and after a long haul flight I use it all over my face and looked great. It’s quite liquid (not tacky and quick drying) compared with other concealers, so it’s easy to apply all over the face; also, it has more product in the bottle than most concealers, so I don’t feel that bad using it as foundation. 😆

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

Favorite product this month? Oh boy! Tied between Huda New Nude Palette and Nars Blissful blush.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Nars Hot Tryst palette, ABH Amrezy, Ofra Glazed Donut and Nars Blissful blush. All fairly equal in usage!

Most used eye product this month? Huda New Nude Palette, I think? Or possibly Pat McGrath palettes I purchased during all those Sephora sales? It’s a bit hard to figure out what one I reached for the most, as I’ve been hitting all of them pretty hard.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair with cool undertone
Favorite product this month? Notoriously Morbid’s My Bugs highlighter (a limited edition halloween 2018 product)
Most used face/cheek product this month? Notoriously Morbid’s Spectre Of A Beating Heart blush (a subscription exclusive shade)
Most used eye product this month? Kat Von D shade and eye quad in plum (for those 5 min makeup days)

???? ???? ????/????????: Very fair with neutral undertones; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

???????? ??????? ???? ?????? Pat McGrath holiday palettes

???? ???? ????/????? ??????? ???? ?????? FACE — ABH Glow Kit in Moonchild; NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer. CHEEK — Physician’s Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose; NARS Hot Tryst Cheek Palette.

???? ???? ??? ??????? ???? ?????? UD Primer Potion in Enigma; Too Faced Gingerbread Spice Palette; ABH Modern Renaissance Palette

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

Favorite product this month?

Natasha Denona Blush and Glow Mini in Golden Coral and #1 Light Highlight, Morrocan Hair Treatment Light, ABH Brow Gel, Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara, Colourpop Super Shock Eyeshadow in Nillionaire , The Face Shop Matte Up Tint in Bitter Orange, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, MAC Extra Dimension Blush in Hushed Tone, ABH Sultry Palette

Most used face/cheek product this month?

MAC Extra Dimension Blush in Hushed Tone

Most used eye product this month? Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara, Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara, ABH Sultry Palette, ABH Brow Gel

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with yellow warm undertone (MAC NC 20-25)

Favorite product this month? Although I use it since mid-October, I keep liking more and more Becca Ultimate Coverage 24-Hour Foundation; it has good coverage, looks great on my skin, applies beautifully with both fingers and a sponge.

Most used face/cheek product this month? I mostly used MAC Harmony to shape a little my face, a mix between sculpting and blush… I wasn’t feeling like too much blush color

Most used eye product this month? I switch my eyeshadow color quite often, but I almost everyday apply MAC Nothing On pencil in the waterline and even if I don’t use a brow pencil, I set my brows (currently I’m using the MILK Kush Brow Gel)

Skin tone/coloring: Light medium neutral, blue eyes, chocolate brown hair with magenta highlights

Favorite product this month: It is purely utilitarian but I was so grateful to have found IT Bye Bye Pores Primer.

Most used face/cheek product: KGD Maifanshi Moisture Makeup. I wore it everyday, even cutting off the. otto of the tube. But when it is gone, I will be switching to the Aqua Foundation. I generally wore ColourPop SS blush in Bardot but the past few days I have been wearing Tarte blush in Concept.

Most used eye product: I wore a Buxom mascara everyday but finished it yesterday. Otherwise I switched among PMG Mothership II, TF Gingerbread Spice, and ABH Modern Renaissance.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain with pink undertones

Favourite product this month? Colour Pop Gallop lipstick – it goes with everything and Ginger Spice by EA.

Most used face/cheek product this month? L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in Rose Ivory

Most used eye product this month? A cross between Anastasia’s Sultry and Dior’s Bonne Etoile.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite product this month? Dr. Jart Microdermabrasion Exfoliant, followed by Vasanti serum
Most used face/cheek product this month? face: Lise Watier Tient Multi Fini powder foundation; cheek: Dior Rosy Glow blush and Milani Afterglow highlighter
Most used eye product this month? surprisingly, Nars Kalahari duo (the “old” one), Sephora Cappucino pencil liner and Marc Jacobs skinny liner (black or dark blue) for upper waterline

Your skin tone/coloring: light neutral

Favorite product this month? Charlotte Tillbury Pillow Talk eye quad and blush. Such a pretty take on neutrals with a little twist.

Most used face/cheek product this month? LaMer The Soft Fluid Foundation in Natural 12. Has a beautiful natural finish on the skin. Fragranced but I happen to love it and it fades quickly. I apply with a flat foundation brush then pounce in with a Beauty Blender.

Most used eye product this month? Charlotte Tillbury Instant Look in a Palette in Natural Beauty. It’s been great for holiday traveling. I particularly love the blushes and the eye transition shade.

Medium with yellow undertones

Lacuna balm (dupe for Clarins balm available in the UK from supermarket chain ALDI.

NARS Orgasm blush. Am presently panning this.

Smashbox Full Exposure palette (panning at the moment), Stila Glitter and Glow Kitten eyeshadow (stopper now removed) and Kat Von D Tattoo liner in Trooper (HG).

Skin tone/coloring: medium/deep, golden, warm brown hair, dark warm green eyes
Favorite Product this month: I definitely enjoyed my Huda New Nudes palette, as well as the Amethyst Obsessions palette
Most used face/cheek product this month: Colourpop Stick Foundation and Cover Fx Illuminating Setting, Spray, both daily I think. I also used my Laura Geller Gilded Honey highlight a lot.
Most used eye product: Probably that Huda New Nudes palette and my NYX Faux Blacks eye pencil in Obsidian.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Medium, Neutral Undertones

Favorite product this month? I’ve always liked highlighter but have never found one that I want to use all the time. On a whim I decided to try one from CP () and I’ve been wearing it almost every day and just absolutely love it. Not sparkly but still highlights, doesn’t look powdery, layers well, easy to apply and blend, can build up, and the color just goes with every look I do so great for my skin tone.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Other than the highlighter I’ve been back to using my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Paaaarty. I was using more rosy pinks on a regular basis, but I dyed my hair from bright blonde to a light auburn red two weeks ago and this is a more neutral color that just looks lovely and natural for me with this hair color.

Most used eye product this month? Lancome Monsiuer Big Waterproof Mascara – I’ve gotten rid of all my others (besides Diorshow which I still do enjoy for certain looks) because now because this steals the show.

Belated Merry Christmas & Happy New Year in advance!

Tone : Yellow-neutral, medium, Dior 3N
Favorite for December: Easy…Sydney Grace eyeshadows! Haven’t even worn them yet best they just arrived for Christmas, but they feel soooo good and swatch like metallic powdery butter!
Most used face or cheek: Harder…using Surratt Beauty blushes & testing a Hema baked blush fairly equally.
Most used eye: None, boo hoo! I’ve been ill and soooo busy I have hardly worn makeup.

Skin tone/colouring: fair/light with red/pink undertones; strawberry blonde hair, green eyes
Favourite product this month: Urban Decay Naked Heat palette – I’ve had this for a year now, but found myself going for it 2 to 3 days a week this month

Most used eye product: as above, the Naked Heat palette
