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

Favorite plum eyeshadow? Gemma from the ND Star Palette and Chant and Empowered from the Viseart Libertine palette.

Favorite gold highlighter? I don’t wear gold highlighter… it does not look good on my skin tone.

Favorite brown eyeliner? Usually whatever is available from the drugstore… right now I’m working through a Maybelline one that’s pretty nice.

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

???????? ???? ?????????? MUFE Artist Shadow in D826 (Fig); Coloured Raine Queen Mother; ColourPop SSS in Central Perk; UD Punk

???????? ????? ????????? UD 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Roach

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with pink undertones
Favorite plum eyeshadow? I don’t know if it’s plum, but I love the Viseart Amethyst palette.
Favorite gold highlighter? I don’t wear a lot of standard gold because it looks funny on my skin…a lot are too dark, but I do love the lighter gold Becca highlighters and the lighter highlight from the balm – Mary-Lou Manizer. I’m going to try Ambrezy but may end up gifting to my niece if it’s too dark for me.
Favorite brown eyeliner? I don’t wear brown eyeliner… I used to but haven’t tried any lately.

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

Favorite plum eyeshadow? ND Livid (Lila palette).

Favorite gold highlighter? The right hand split pan from the BH Cosmetics Duo Light palette, I think it’s called Double Date. It’s glorious.

Favorite brown eyeliner? Zoeva Glance!

A dupe for…?

I’m not sure which one you mean, sorry. But you could try Christine/Temptalia’s Dupe List link at the top! Good luck finding what you want 🙂

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite plum eyeshadow? does purple count as plum? if so, the purple side of Nars Kauai; if not, then maybe Smashbox Headline
Favorite gold highlighter? face highlighter – the closest I would have to “gold” is TheBalm Mary Loumanizer or the Estee Edit 14 K Glow; for eyes, while I don’t use true gold for a browbone highlight, I adore MAC’s Goldbit to highlight my “mobile lid”.
Favorite brown eyeliner: No question – Sephora’s own Cappuccino (I love MJ Brownout too but it dries up and becomes hard and unusable in a ridiculously short time)

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

Favorite plum eyeshadow? Seriously? Too many to count! MAC Sketch, Star Violet and Deep Damson, UD Hellride, Punk, Bondage and Jilted. ALL of Viseart Amethyst Theory palette. And some among ND Lila and Mini Lila. Even then, guaranteed I’m forgetting something!

Favorite gold highlighter? ABH Amrezy and MAC Whisper Of Gilt in a dead heat tie!

Favorite brown eyeliner? Since UD description is that it is a brown, UD 24/7 Glide On pencil in Corrupt.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair olive, more neutral in winter

Favorite plum eyeshadow? Lise Watier Aubergine single
Favorite gold highlighter? Dior Midnight Wish 001, and I have a lot of gold highlighters

Favorite brown eyeliner? Lise Watier Café Noir

Your skin tone/coloring:
Favorite plum eyeshadow? MAC Star Violet

Favorite gold highlighter? Becca Prosecco Pop. I have the ABH Amrezy highlighter but I have yet to try it (I’m getting to it!)

Favorite brown eyeliner? Marc Jacobs Brown Out or MAC Teddy. I don’t like matte brown eyeliner. I like it to be bronzey but nothing too brassy. I prefer brown over black bc I find it to be less harsh but it still defines. I just think when it’s matte it ends up being too flat

Erica: We have similar skin tones and ABH Amrezy is beyond stunning. It took a while until it grew on me, but that was because I had to figure out the correct way (for me) to apply it.
I take a small, damp beauty sponge (from Real Techniques) and apply it that way.
It takes all my self-control not to stare at my highlighted cheekbones in the mirror all day!

Skin tone: Very fair with neutral undertones.

Favorite plum e/s: Oh my, too many to count. I love Deep Damson, Coloured Raine Queen Mother, Viseart Amethyst palette and so many others.

Favorite gold highlighter: I don’t use a lot of gold highlighters as they are too dark on my skin. The one that I have and use is Mary Loumanizer from the Balm and Whisper of Guilt from MAC but I don’t use either very often.

Favorite brown eye liner: I am really liking the Shiseido Brown pencil liner and the BbIA liner in 02 Last Brown and the Flowfushi Mote Liquid Eye Liner in Brown. I picked up all of them from YesStyle and they each have very thin brushes so getting a super thin line is easier and since I have hooded eyes I need a very thin line. In addition, they all last really well on my lid and the pencil one in my waterline.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite plum eyeshadow? True plum eyeshadows, especially in singles, were hard for me to find when I was looking a little while back. My favourites are contained in the Maybelline Burgundy Bar – it has a lovely soft plum in it and Mecca Cosmetica Vivid Eyeshadow palette has a pretty plum too.

Favourite gold highlighter? I don’t use gold highlighters at all, but love a good gold eyeshadow! (Half Baked UD, Amber Lorac, Louder bareMinerals, Cleo City Colour) etc.

Favorite brown eyeliner? I don’t use eyeliner either, but love brown eyeshadows (Sandstorm City Colour in particular).

Fav Plum ES – Kjaer Weis makes a taupe-ish/plum eyeshadow called Magnetic that is so complex that it would look amazing on everyone
Fav Gold HL – I don’t usually go for gold but i would say that Jane Iredale has a gold loose powder shimmer that’s lovely. My fav is Ilia’s Cosmic Dancer (more warm than cool)
Fav Brown EL – Kjaer Weis pencil in brown. It’s perfection and lasts.
