Your skin tone/coloring: light medium with warm undertones.

Best foundation for perfected skin?
I mix double wear with Armani luminous silk or I just use double wear

Best highlighter for glowing skin?
BECCA opal !! I have so many but always come back to this for an intense glow.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? NARS audacious Barbara or MAC mehr

Barbara and Mehr…two lip shades I love! I thought about adding NARS Barbara to my MLBB list, but although I love it, I don’t think it qualifies as an MLBB shade for me. Mehr is also gorgeous, but too dark for me to consider as an MLBB. Great choices, though!

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

Best foundation for perfected skin? Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup

Best highlighter for glowing skin? Diorskin Nude Luminizer in Pink Glow

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? I have so many MLBBs, but MAC Modesty, MAC Hug Me, and L’Oreal Colour Riche Shine in Varnished Rosewood are the three that immediately spring to mind.

NW20, neutral leaning cool, brown hair, blue eyes. Pigmented lips.
Foundation: The new Dior Forever Skin Glow did that for me (shade 1.5), but I had a bad reaction to it so my search continues. I like the finish and cover on Benefit’s Hello Flawless (Believe in Me Ivory) but it reads slightly too pink on me.
Yet to find a highlighter!
Lips: hands down Mac Modesty.

Skin tone: Under my name.

Best foundation for perfect skin: Chosungah 22 Luminous LIght Foundation in Porcelain or 01. I am anxious to try out the new Guerlain foundation when it hits Sephora here in the U.S. I saw Alana use it in her “Date Night” look and it appears to be quite a glowy foundation which I like. Doesn’t have the best coverage which might make it a no go for me but would still like to get a tester and see what I think.

Best highlighter: Not sure if we are talking all over the face or just in highlighted areas but if we are talking over the face then MAC Strobe Cream or Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter. It works okay for me and I do like it but it doesn’t work as well as it does for others and not sure why. MAC Strobe Cream is an oldie but a goodie that coincidentally, I started using after seeing Alana use it on her channel several years ago.

MLBB: I don’t really have one. My lips are very pigmented and I just haven’t found one that I like the shade and formula so that it makes it worth wearing.

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

Best foundation for perfected skin? Guerlain Parure Gold mixed with a little bit of DB Velvet Matte.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? Natasha Denona All Over Glow or the Revolution liquid highlighters – Starlight is nice and neutral.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? Colourpop Cami or Lumiere lippie stix.

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

Best foundation for perfected skin? For me, the Physician’s Formula Healthy Foundation. That’s about as perfected as I get, lol.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Finish for a Superstar Youth Glow / Hollywood Light Wand.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? I’m always on the hunt for the my lips but better lip color, but right now it’s a combo of Clinique’s Almost Lipsticks in Black Honey and Pink Honey. My lips aren’t very pigmented at all, so pretty much any pinky nude is much better than my natural lip color, lol.

I completely forgot that I had a nice sized sample of Black Honey and have been loving it through the fall/winter season! The Almost Lipsticks have been a really lovely thing to have with this sheer/glossy lip trend happening right now.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral
Best foundation for perfected skin? TF BTW porcelain, BB Bounce 1.40 w CT Filter Light
Best highlighter for glowing skin? Stila Celestial or Guerlain Meteriorites H/L duo
Best your-lips-but-better lip color? MAC Samantha Ravndahl Lipstick

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertone

Best foundation for perfected skin? For me MAC Prolongwear Nourishing Waterproof, Estee Lauder Double Wear and Becca Ultimate Coverage are too close to choose just one, but the order in which I listed them shows a slight preference

Best highlighter for glowing skin? I’m personally not into highlighting or glowing, I just prefer something very subtle, like MAC Emphasize

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? MAC Brave, since naturally my lips are slightly mauve

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15
Best foundation for perfected skin? ELDW, used sparingly. It looks like a mask
if applied too much.
Best highlighter for glowing skin? Cle De Peau Pastel. It’s just glowy, not metallic.
Best your-lips-but-better lip color? Burberry English Rose is my exact lip color. A slight rosier version would be Tom Ford Collin.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? UD Aura (DC’d) or Dior Glowing Pink (LE) and I also really like the Algenist drops, which I can use as a highlighter or mixed with foundation for a lovely, glow-from-within look

Best Your Lips But Better, (I have really pigmented lips )
so Guerlain Rouge G #3

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Best foundation for perfected skin? At the moment I am loving L”oreal’s True Match in Ivory Rose. Easy to apply, a good working pump and it makes my skintone look even and light.

Best highlighter for glowing skin? I don’t do ‘glowing’ looks – I prefer a more mattish finish. But I am interested to read what others say here.

Best your-lips-but-better lip color? I don’t really do MLBB either, preferring more pigmented and bold shades. A lot of the MLBB are of a pinky nudey shade and I don’t do pinks at all.

Skin NC20, cool blonde hair, light blue eyes.
Foundation: Usually my HG is BTW in Porcelain, but lately I’ve been loving CYO LifeProof in 103, along with CT Hollywood Flawless Filter or MAC Strobe Cream in Pinklite.
Highlighter: Anastasia Amrezy or Colourpop SS Highlighter in Lunch Money or Flexatarian, or Mary Lou Manizer(still!) In order of preference.
