Lipsticks, always! But now it’s a toss up. Givenchy Brun Createur was a hot and heavy phase for most of this year for me. Just got EL Pure Color Envy Hi-Lustre in Slow Burn and that is now on par. (Better winter color for me.)

The windows to the soul.

Lip product you feel most confident in? Any berry-purple lip crayon — Bite Beauty Aubergine, Revlon Just Bitten in … whatever the berry purple one is, haha. Rendezvous, maybe?

Your favorite feature to emphasize? Lips! Not because they’re better or worse than my other features, but because bright lipstick makes me happy when I see myself in it.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Most refreshing skincare product? It sort of depends on the time of year. Pretty much all year round, Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist or Clarins Fix Makeup (the original and the newer one). In summer, Clarins Energizer Wakeup Booster or Shiseido Ibuki Quick Fix Mist
Lip product you feel most confident in? MAC Amplified Cream lipsticks, mainly in the shade Craving and also Guerlain’s Rouge Automatique (are they still being made?) in the colour Habit Rouge
Your favorite feature to emphasize? It really depends – almost always, it’s my skin (at my age, I’m pretty proud of how good it is); then I alter between lips and eyes, depending on my mood

Where in Ontario are you from? I live in a town called Bancroft. Just wondering as I often see you mention Lise Watier and they are one of my fav brands and love their seasonal collections!

Kathleen, I’m in “the Banana Belt” – Hamilton. I know of Bancroft – I used to work for the Ontario office of a major charity and we had volunteers and an office in Bancroft. Lise Watier has some fabulous products. I wish she’d expand the line of eyeshadow pencils and also of the “pot/cream” shadows they’ve come out with.

Your favorite feature to emphasize? My favorite feature to emphasize is theoretically my lips (I love bold colors). But I have an odd face structure and I think I look bad if I don’t emphasize my eyes; and I also have hooded eyes. So I will always do something to accentuate the eyes; and by something I mean lots of things…

Most refreshing skincare product? Tough one; if I’m feeling grimy, Thayer’s witch hazel does it; if not, SK-II Cellumination Mask-in lotion

Lip product you feel most confident in? Revlon HD gloss in rose quartz is best color on me bar none. For lipstick I always start with Jack Black layer and for most confident, UD Lovelight (pink peachy) on top.

Your skin tone/coloring: Tan or Warm Tan

Most refreshing skincare product? Organic Flowers Toner Deep Rich by Whamisa (Korean brand)

Lip product you feel most confident in? Oh lord, how am I supposed to choose^^ I always feel confident wearing lipstick, but I have to say that, strangely, over the last weeks I’ve felt more confident wearing “crazy” colors such as NYX Liquid Suede in Jet Set than while wearing more “traditional” colors.

Your favorite feature to emphasize? My eyes or my lips (or both at the same time) depending on the day and the effort I’m willing to put in getting ready

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 w/some redness

Most refreshing skincare product? Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask (put in the fridge first!)

Lip product you feel most confident in? A bright red lip, usually matte. Something like Sephora Lip Cream in #1 or MAC Ruby Woo.

Your favorite feature to emphasize? I don’t really know… My skin? I have pretty good skin so having a base that emphasizes that is nice. But I think it also depends on the day and on my mood.

Skin tone: fair, porcelain with pink undertones
Most refreshing skincare product: Aveeda Sensitive Exfoliating Scrub? Maybe – but not really refreshing. I am going to read up the suggestions from fellow readers for this one.
Lip Product – definitely lipsticks and my current favourite is Clarins Joli Rouge Ginger.
Favourite feature to emphasise – my eyes – because they are an interesting shade of grey/blue. Even though I wear glasses.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC23, very prominent yellow undertones, deep dark brown hair, cinnamon brown eyes!

Most refreshing skincare product? Belif aqua bomb, the one for dry skin! I love how it really hydrates my skin, and leaves it plump and happy!

Lip product you feel most confident in? Kat Von D Studded Kiss lipstick in Hellbent, or MAC Rebel! I’m not a nude lip kind of gal!

Your favorite feature to emphasize? I want to say lips, because I love my full lips and bright colours. But I have severely hooded eyes, so I HAVE to emphasize them, or I look dead/asleep!

Your skin tone/coloring: fair with slight yellow undertones

Most refreshing skincare product? I freshly washed face is always refreshing. I like the CeraVe cleansers. I also love the Clinique Take the Day Off balm because it removes every last bit of eye makeup without irritating my sensitive eyes. Traditional make up removers never completely remove my eye makeup, and usually leave my eyes feeling irritated

Lip product you feel most confident in? Usually something with color: UD matte revolution in Tilt (warm red), Coloured Raine liquid lipstick in Spiked Punch (burnt orange), Sleek True Colour Lipstick in Mystic (purple), Bite Beauty Radish, etc. I also like a nice a nice high-end neutral, like Tom Ford Ashton or Nars Anna. There’s something about applying a fancy lipstick that imparts confidence. 🙂

Your favorite feature to emphasize? My favorite makeup to do is eye makeup, so I enjoy emphasizing my eyes. Then again, I love a bright lip as well. I can skip all other makeup (even brows!) and just do a bright lip. And of course glowy skin is a must, and I am a highlighter junkie…. I guess I like variety!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Medium with Yellow undertones
Most refreshing skincare product?: Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber mask and SK II FTE
Lip product you feel most confident in? Recently bought the by terry impearlious baume de rose gift set. I find myself reaching for these the most on everyday basis. Other than this I love wearing Huda Beauty liquid mate in Trophy wife and Muse.
Your favorite feature to emphasize? Eyes. I love to wear eyeliner and Mascara.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair cool to neutral, dark auburn hair and dark green-grey eyes
Most refreshing skincare product? Skyn Iceland Eye
Lip product you feel most confident in? Either a edgy colour or a pinky nude colour.
Your favorite feature to emphasize? My eyes, I like experimenting with colour.

Oops, meant to say Skyn Iceland Icelandic Relief Eye Cream. It’s cooling and refreshing, the texture is rather like blancmange which is a little weird but it’s nice to use. I got a deluxe sample in my M&S beauty calendar.

Skin tone: Very pale with cool undertones.
Most refreshing skin care? I know it sounds crazy but I still love MAC Fix Plus and in the summer there is nothing better than spraying refrigerated Fix Plus all over your face. I have mentioned before, I am pretty addicted to it. I have tried others but I keep coming back to it. Probably my most repurchased product.
Lip product you feel most confident in? MAC “Nightmoth” lip pencil with Rouge Bunny Rouge Sheer lipstick in “Perfume of His Gaze” over the top. I love my EA Red Door Red lipstick but I have to be careful wearing it as frequently happens with red lippies. I can’t relax in it but the lip pencil with the sheer lippie over it is perfect.
Feature I most like to play up? I wish I could say my lips because it is one of the first things I notice on other people but my top lip is nonexistent so I generally play up my eyes. I also really love lipstick and wish I had big beautiful lips to put the lipstick on!! I actually get the most compliments on my skin, though. I only see the flaws but everyone tells me I have amazing skin.

Skintone/coloring: light, NC20

Most refreshing skincare product: Paula Choice 2%BHA. Just makes my skincare feel nice. I don’t generally do scrubs or face masks

Your favorite feature to emphasize? Eyes

Skin tone: Medium / cool pink and yellow undertones. (I think I need to know this.)
Most refreshing skin care product: No clue. I need to get one.
Lip product: right now, absolutely loving MUFE’s Lip Ink. That red! And I can build it from a light wash to a really powerhouse red that still has a bit of translucency to it.
Favorite Feature to emphasize: eyes. I have two different ones. Didn’t used to like it. Now I kinda do.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair and very yellow under tone
Most refreshing skincare product? Vitamin C serum
Lip product you feel most confident in? For daily use Nyx butter gloss
Your favorite feature to emphasize? My eyes and cheeks

Your skin tone/coloring: Mac NW20

Lip product you feel most confident in? Too Faced Cinnamon Kiss; MAC Hot Tahiti – in other words, muted semi-glossy red

Your favorite feature to emphasize? I have the most fun with lipstick

Your skin tone/coloring: Light Neutral

Most refreshing skincare product? almost anything from Leahlani Skincare, but especially the Kalima cleansing powder and the Mahina Evening Replenishing Elixir.

Lip product you feel most confident in? something bright, such as UD Crush or Bite Pickled Ginger

Your favorite feature to emphasize? eyes

Your skin tone/coloring: NC20
Most refreshing skincare product? Origins powder mask in matcha madness. A lot of people find the scent unpleasant but I just love it. It’s packed with antioxidants too.
Lip product you feel most confident in? In general, an orange or even brick toned lipstick works for my complexion the best. My favorites include NARS audacious lipstick in Jane, Kat Von D liquid lipstick in Lolita 2, Givenchy la rouge in 304 Mandarine Boléro, Mac matte lipstick in chili and Ofra liquid lipstick in Miami Fever.
Your favorite feature to emphasize? Eyes and lips.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. Currently trying trying out the Kat Von D Lock-It Foundation in Light 41 and I think I’m falling in love! A great colour and, for my taste anyway, a great foundation! A seriously awesome product that I’d recommend to any pale person who is struggling to find a really fair foundation and who likes full-coverage. ?

Most refreshing skincare product? The Rodial Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic. It’s refreshing and hydrating on the skin! I’ve used it for years.

Lip product you feel most confident in? Lipstick in general. I’m a massive lipstick fan! I’m also obsessed with lip balms but that’s settled a bit since I found some excellent ones last year. I’ve found so many good lip products over the years that you’d think I’d stop buying them as I have too many but I feel compelled to keep trying new formulas and colours! I don’t think I’ll ever stop. ?

Your favorite feature to emphasize? My lips usually! If it’s not my lips it’s my lashes. They are very fair and pretty much invisible without mascara, but with mascara you can see just how long and curled they are. That in itself can be challenging as trying to find a flake-proof and smudge-proof mascara is hard for me but I recently discovered Maybelline Lash Sensational mascara and that stay put so well! I was pleasantly surprised. ?

Most refreshing skincare product? Laniege water sleeping mask, Holika Holika makgeolli brightening mask sheet

Your favorite feature to emphasize? eyes
