Skin tone/coloring: Below my name

Go-to pink lipstick: I am not into lipstick. One of the few I have is Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle, which is a pinky nude, so I guess that would be my go-to pink. Many years ago I had a few hot pinks but I don’t have the self confidence to pull them off.

Go-to neutral blush: Tarte Concept

Go-to purple eyeshadow: I use whatever purple is in the palette in my current rotation. I use it in my deep crease and/or outer V.

Your skin tone/coloring: Porcelain

Your go-to pink lipstick? Urban Decay Anarchy for a bright pink, Besame 1969 Dusty Rose for a more natural/muted pink.

Your go-to neutral blush? Blackbird Cosmetics Kitten Kiss – I bought 3 backups when she closed her business 🙁

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? UD ac/dc, UD Plague, MAC Fathom’s Deep.

𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐬𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐞/𝐜𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐠: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐠𝐨-𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐤 𝐥𝐢𝐩𝐬𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐤? It’s a more mauvish pink, but UD Sheer Rapture. For a true pink, probably MAC Creme Cup. I rarely wear true pinks, though. I prefer mauves and fuchsias.

𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐠𝐨-𝐭𝐨 𝐧𝐞𝐮𝐭𝐫𝐚𝐥 𝐛𝐥𝐮𝐬𝐡? Tarte Exposed and Physician’s Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose

𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐠𝐨-𝐭𝐨 𝐩𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐞𝐲𝐞𝐬𝐡𝐚𝐝𝐨𝐰? Urban Decay Urban and Ardency Inn Royal

Your skin tone/coloring: light with mostly neutral undertones
Your go-to pink lipstick? Fenty Candy Venom
Your go-to neutral blush? Tarte Exposed
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Dawn Eyes Enchanting

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? Colourpop Lumiere.

Your go-to neutral blush? Sydney Grace Day Dream – a perfect blend of peach, pink, rose and nude!

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? All of them!

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? Right now it’s Bobbi Brown Crushed Liquid Lipstick in Give a Fig… it’s a warm medium pink on me and it’s so lovely.

Your go-to neutral blush? Charlotte Tilbury Cheek-to-Chic blush in Ecstasy.

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Any of the purples in the ABH Norvina palette and the entire Viseart Amethyst palette. So so lovely.

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? These days I have been using these three pinks pretty regularly: Guerlain KissKiss in Rosy Boop, Chanel Rouge Coco in Mademoiselle, and MAC Brave.

Your go-to neutral blush? I use NARS Orgasm with almost every look, so I guess that counts as neutral for me.

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? I don’t use true purples. The closest I get are muted shades like MAC Quarry, Haux, and Shale; Bare Minerals Hot Spell; and ABH Buon Fresco.

Oh duh how could I forget Buon Fresco from ABH? That’s as about as close to purple I get too and that’s a great one!

Skin tone: Under my name. Dark brown eyes and grey hair.

Go to pink lipstick: I tend to prefer brighter shades of pink, although I do where lighter shades. My go to’s would be Lipstick Queen Private Party and MAC Party Parrot. Party Parrot leans a little more coral but I use it as a pink. I have a lot of pink lipsticks though so on any given day I might say a different shade.

Go to neutral blush: I have to admit, I don’t have a lot of neutral blushes. Probably the most neutral I have is Tarte Exposed.

Go to purple e/s: I honestly don’t think I have a go to at this point in my life. I love purple so much and use a lot of them across the board. I have Viseart Amethyst palette, several in single shadows, MAC Stars ‘N Rockets being a favorite. I have ABH Norvina, Nabla, etc. A lot of times it will be the purple at hand or in a palette that I am using for the transition shades.

Skin tone/coloring: above my name ^

Your go-to pink lipstick: Too Faced Sugar Daddy and Urban Decay Peyote

Your go-to neutral blush: Colourpop Between the Sheets

Your go-to purple eyeshadow: Pretty much all warm purples and some cool ones if they have a grey tone to them. I don’t like bluish purples as much.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Your go-to pink lipstick? I don’t have many but it’s probably the discontinued Clarins Rouge Prodige in Lilac Pink (or maybe MAC Impassioned…is that pink?)
Your go-to neutral blush? no such thing for me
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Probably the purple side of the original Nars Kauai but I also really like Too Faced Black Currant (from the Bon Bons palette)

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? Lately Bobbi Brown Sandwash Pink

Your go-to neutral blush? Lancome Miel Glace, Clinique Nude Pop or NARS Madly

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Maybe MAC Star Violet? KVD Heaven from Saint and Sinner Palette? I’m not really into purple really.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Your go-to pink lipstick? I never, ever wear pink lipstick! The lightest shade I go is a ginger shade.

Your go-to neutral blush? I don’t use a neutral blush – just a peachy one.

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? It’s also very rare that I use a purple eyeshadow too. If I did, it would be Voodoo from UD Vice 2. However I am getting fond of plum eyeshadows for autumn. Mecca Cosmetica Vivid Eyeshadow palette has some lovely plums and purples and the Maybelline Burgundy Bar.

Go-to pink lipstick:
Paris Pink Lip Glaze by Trestique. Stupidly easy to apply, lovely color, moisturizing, slightly glossy but not over the top. Wears off evenly, not a big deal to reapply.

Keep trying to get back into pink, but def prefer mauves, like last summer’s VLGs. Roseland is the most pink scored in that group. Never choose pink, but try to use some from mix sets, like Gen Nude Everything, but that’s fairly mauve, too. At times, like that purpled pink, like KVD Suspiria. (But liked the movie better, lol.). Neutral blush: CP Aphrodisiac. Panned it instantly. Like Madly, too. Purple e/s? All, from the pale, tinged type like buon fresco to the heavy duty strobe Qetesh. SG purples, natch. If thinking purple look, tend to grab Paradise Fallen, but only bec low/no buy has kept me from snagging the Viseart purple niner.

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? MAC Brave or Mehr is the most `pink` I’ll go (although on me they look more purplish-mauvish), I’m definitely not into bubble-gum pinks or something really bright

Your go-to neutral blush? MAC Harmony

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? MAC Indian Ink for deep purple, MAC Haux for something more subtle

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep w/golden undertones (Mac C7)
Your go-to pink lipstick? Mac Pink Nouveau
Your go-to neutral blush? Mac Gingerly
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? ABH Enchanted

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool skin, gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands.
Your go-to pink lipstick? Too many to list!
Your go-to neutral blush? Probably Tarte Unstoppable-it’s technically a peach, but from my own experience and Googling, it seems to work well on cool (like mine) and warm skin tones.
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Not technically an eyeshadow in the US due to lack of FDA testing, but UD Urban from the Electric palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, warn
