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

Favorite product this month? I made up my perfect palette (a la JAMBeauty89 on YouTube) out of singles I already owned and I love it so much! So many lovely rosy neutrals. And also still loving my newish Charlotte Tilbury products.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Pixi H20 SkinTint, Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, Hollywood Lightwand and Cheek to Chic blush in Ecstasy.

Most used eye product this month? Dose of Colors Friendcation palette, my rosy nudes singles palette I created, and CT Luxury eyeshadow palette in Vintage Vamp.

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral-leaning-warm undertones

Favorite product this month? The Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss in Bronzed is so beautiful. It’s a metallic blackened bronze, and I’ve been loving wearing it all over my lids with a warm reddish-brown in my crease. I’m desperate to find a dupe for this shade before it dries out, because it’s talked about so little on the internet. This is far and away the best website for dupes, so I’m hoping someone can help me out!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Recently bought the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, and it’s been helping my horribly dry winter skin look healthier and not as scaly and gross.

Most used eye product this month? I picked up the Viseart Coy palette so I’ve been trying that out this month. It has a lot of unique shimmer shades and I’m glad I got it.

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

Favorite product this month? Laura Mercier Amethyst Caviar Stick

Most used face/cheek products this month? Estรฉe Lauder Double Wear Makeup, Clinique Blushing Blush in Cupid

Most used eye products this month? Laura Mercier Amethyst Caviar Stick, ABH Brow Wiz

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral beige with a hint of olive
Favorite product this month? MAC 170 synthetic foundation brush. New purchase and Iโ€™m very enthused!
Most used face/cheek product this month? Iโ€™m all about highlighter in unusual shades. Pretty Vulgar in Lilac Lust and Huda in Artic Glow
Most used eye product this month? DC cosmetics Berries & Cream. I love the shade Bittersweet as a transition shade..

I’m not a fan of applying foundations with a brush (I prefer my fingers, sometimes a beautyblender or a similar makeup sponge), but I like a lot how MAC 170 performs. It buffs beautifully the foundation on the skin, without looking patchy or leaving strokes (although I personally can’t make it work with very liquid formulas). I have used it also with powders and even for contouring/blush, but it’s not for sheer application. ๐Ÿ˜€
The only thing I hate about the brush is how hard is to clean sometimes; but it’s nothing that 2-3 consecutive washes with Castille soap can’t remove.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Olive toned

Favorite product this month? Artis Palm brush (I scored this for $22 at Winners!!)

Most used face/cheek product this month? Nudestix Nudies blush in Bare Back

Most used eye product this month? NARS Skin Deep palette. I bought this in a moment of weakness but I have no regrets. I’ve been using this everyday and it’s been perfect for neutral looks for work.

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

Favorite product this month? Becca Ultimate Coverage Foundation
I actually finished the bottle mid-month and since I’m missing it a lot in my routine. I’m now trying NARS Sheer Glow and I can’t make it work for me no matter what I do; the Becca foundation looked amazing on me with little effort.

Most used face/cheek product this month? MAC Harmony / Too Faced Ultimate Coverage Concealer
Usually in this category it’s my current foundation + concealer + powder, since I switch other items day to day. But this month I finished a foundation and powder (I use only on item at a time, I don’t have multiple opened), so I switched to new ones. So it’s my current concealer for now just.
But the blush/cheek product I have used most is MAC Harmony, either for sculpting the cheeks (and even the eyes), either for a natural looking blush.

Most used eye product this month? Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash Mascara
The only eye product I used almost everyday is mascara; I might skip eye primer a day or two when I’m not wearing eyeshadow; I might only use a brow gel or a brow pencil, depending on my look (are brow products considered eye products ๐Ÿ˜† ); but mascara is a regular.
I opened the Hourglass one this month, it looked great the first 2 weeks, now it becomes more and more clumpy… it’s a mini size, so I’m thinking of tossing it after just a month of use and start a new one. But I also started the Arch Brow pencil from Hourglass and that’s definitely starting to become a favorite.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite product this month? Youth to the People facial oil
Most used face/cheek product this month? Estee Edit Treat+Prep+Glow and Dior Rosy Glow blush
Most used eye product this month? ABH Sultry Palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/NW13
Favorite product this month: Tarte In Bloom palette
Most used face/cheek product: Mac Harmony blush
Most used eye product: TPF Cosmetics gel eyeliner in Chocolate Mousse

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair-light with neutral undertones
Favorite product this month? Fell back in love with my Becca Moonstone highlighter. It is perfect.
Most used face/cheek product this month? PF Butter Bronzer. In my 2019 Project Pan
Most used eye product this month? Lorac Pro palette, also in my 2019 Project Pan. I loved this when I first got it about 3 1/2-4 years ago, but now with my love for ABH eyeshadows I see that I have turned pretty “Meh” about it. I find it interesting.

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair, leaning cool but not too pink.

Favorite product this month? Colourpop creme lippie stix in Aquarius. Maybe not impressive to everyone, but it’s the perfect “your-lip-but-better” shade for me that I’ve been searching for since I got into nude lipsticks this year. I’m buying extras next time I order from them.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Tarte Blush 101 Palette. I bought it for myself after Xmas and I’ve been using it for every look since. Everything but the bronzer (which I knew would be too orange when I bought it) has worked great for me.

Most used eye product this month? Colourpop pressed shadow single in Take The Lead. It’s a great crease color for low makeup days. I use it to contour my forehead and jawline sometimes too.

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

Favorite product this month? Natio Rosewater serum and gel moisturizer – so light and super hydrating!

Most used face/cheek product this month? NARS Unfiltered I cheek palette.

Most used eye product this month? No idea, I’ve tried to change it up every day with colour – maybe my Morphe eye primer?

Skin tone: Under my name.

Favorite product this month: Pony Glam e/s palette. Practically the only thing I have used on my eyes this month. It is a basic nude palette with a mix of warm and cool tones beiges and browns so very versatile. In general, Asian colour products are not as pigmented so I don’t have to worry about applying too much shadow and then having difficulty blending. It is really kind of a no brainer palette.

Most used face/cheek product: Clinique Even Better Glow Light Reflecting foundation in the shade Breeze and Alabaster. I use Alabaster on the high points of my face and Breeze around the periphery. It isn’t as glowy as I would like but I do like the finish and the shades are a decent match for me. It is suppose to have close to full coverage but I don’t find that to be the case. I use my MiBA Calcium Ion Cushion in shade 21 over the areas of hyper-pigmentation to up the coverage.

Most used eye product: See the favorite product answer above. I have also been using the Thrive mascara all month and still can’t quite figure it out. Some days it builds really well, separates and stays put after applied. Other days, it flakes and transfers throughout the day. Just not sure what to make of it as I don’t change products used around the eye area so no reason for it to be different each day. Trying to decide if I will repurchase and after a month I still am not sure. There separating and lengthening I love. I just wish it was more consistent. I probably have another month to determine my final thoughts.

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

Favorite product this month? Chanel Bronzer Soleil Tan and Black Moon Cosmetics Bioluminescent Moonlighter in Squid. Natasha Denona Blush and Glow Mini in Golden Coral and #1 Light Highlight

Favourite product this month? My lipsticks in Ginger: Ginger Spice from EA, Clarins Jolie Rouge in Ginger and Besame lipstick in an orange/red.

Most used face/cheek product this month?: L’Oreal’s True Match foundation in Rose Ivory, followed by the last of my Clarins Prodige blush in Sweet Peach.

Most used eye product this month? Without a doubt it has been the Dior Bonne Etoile quint – the mint green and teal blue shades really work with all of my summer clothes. A close second has been the City Colour singles of Cleo, Sandstorm and All Eyes on Me.

Neutral light to medium.

My favorite product is the VDL primer which gives your skin a glass light appearance. I would say to use it under medium or lighter foundations.

My most used product on the face is the new Laura Mercier Luminizing Foundation. Iโ€™ve used it a lot but find it just ok. It does last but I donโ€™t find it particularly luminizing or radiant at all.
It does last. And itโ€™s good but nothing special.
I fell for the hype.

Most used eye product is my Neulash serum. Brow and lash. Itโ€™s been amazing on my brows and both have lasted 8 mos and not empty.

Medium with yellow undertones

I am panning my old NARS Killing Me Softly palette and am loving Gilda. Also loving a Clarins dupe flash balm.

Hourglass Dim Light powder and aforesaid NARS palette.

Again, Iโ€™m panning a palette (Smashbox Full Exposure). Have used this consistently. Finished one shade and hit pan on another. Also, finished No7 GWP eyeshadow.

I’m medium warm toned. I’ve been using the ABH Sultry and Soft Glam palettes a ton, and the Tarte Park Avenue Princess face palette. My fave product though is probably still my CoverFx Illuminating Setting Spray.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Hourglass Unlocked Palette

I’m such a nerd I started a spreadsheet to keep track of what I use most over the year.

Your skin tone/coloring: Next to my name!

Favorite product this month? Ostara highlighter from Aromaleigh — a rediscovery in my own stash; it’s the smoothest, silkiest highlighter I’ve ever worn, and it actually blurs the texture of my skin; pale peach with a strong cool pink duochrome. Love. I put it on over my foundation (which grabs it and makes it a little more intense), then I powder over, and touch the highest point of my cheek with it again. This plus my natural lips and a nude eye leave me feeling like I’m glowing from within.

Most used face/cheek product this month? The true answer will always be my base products. Outside of those, I don’t think I use specific face products on repeat enough for one to stand out. It might actually be the highlighter mentioned above, but I “rediscovered” it at the very end of the month, so possibly not. Dunno.

Most used eye product this month? Benefit’s Hoola bronzer used as a single-color eye look. (I used to use an ABH bronzer/contour for this, but swiched because Hoola is slightly more neutral.)
