YOUR GO-TO BRONZER? TheBalm Balm Desert or Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer in Light Bronze.

YOUR GO-TO GOLD EYESHADOW? Milani Bella Chiffon (DC?). I’ll grab it for a quick inner corner or brow bone highlight, or use it as a face highlighter.

Your skin tone/coloring: above with freckles, green/gray/blue eyes, warm brown hair.

Your go-to coral lipstick? Bite Beauty Luminous Creme in Tangerine. It’s such a beautiful bright coral! It’s an oldie, but I will use it til the bitter end.

Your go-to bronzer? Nabla Skin Bronzing in Dune. Though, I don’t really use bronzing for bronzing purposes as much as I do giving some definition to my face.

Your go-to gold eyeshadow? Candlelight from the Lorac Pro Palette 4 or Colourpop SSS in Snakebite. I don’t wear gold very much.

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool-toned
Your go-to coral lipstick? no such thing for me; coral clashes with the natural tone of my lips and with my skin; the closest I have to a coral lipstick is MAC Impassioned (is that coral?)
Your go-to bronzer? Too Faced Sweetie Pie and a LE Clarins one with 4 quadrants, similar to those Guerlain ones
Your go-to gold eyeshadow? Urban Decay Strike (an oldie from Vice 2) or Dothraki or Casterly Rock (not sure if that qualifies as “gold”) from the Game of Thrones palette.

Your skin tone/coloring:light, MAC NC 20

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC See Sheer or MAC Flamingo

Your go-to bronzer? Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel , Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer or Guerlain Terracotta Bronzer 001 Blondes

Your go-to gold eyeshadow: MAC Retrospect or any of the Golds from Natasha Denona Gold palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair).

Your go-to coral lipstick? Sooo many good ones! UD Tryst, MAC See Sheer and Make Me Gorgeous.

Your go-to bronzer? Urban Decay Jawbone. It’s almost gone now. I’m going to be so sad the day it completely runs out 😭

Your go-to gold eyeshadow? Literally ANY of the golds in UD Naked Honey, MAC Gorgeous Gold, and a truckload of gold eyeshadows from: da-di-da, Pat McGrath! I also love the gold you created with Sydney Grace for the Radiant Reflection palette. I’m still at the cardiologist office, so I can’t look at the palette for its name. Today was a wringer!

Your go-to coral lipstick? Either Bite’s #BiteofSF or Urban Decay’s Vice Lip Stain in “Physique”

Your go-to bronzer? Benefit Hoola Matte

Your go-to gold eyeshadow? Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in “Pledge Class”

Very pale with strong pink
1 – Pass
2 – Physician’s Formula Butter Bronzer…I just haven’t found another that competes with it on my skin (high or low end)
3 – Melt Cosmetics Ganja. It’s so soft, buttery, and richly pigmented it’s like smearing molten metal on my eyelids.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Your go-to coral lipstick? I don’t wear coral lipstick, but my daughter in law does and she loved Too Faced’s Honey Bear, which she has finished. Clarin’s Joli Rouge Coral Tulips is another favourite of hers.

Your go-to bronzer? Nope – I don’t use a bronzer.

Your go-to gold eyeshadow? I have lots and lots of these: Cleo from City Color, Gold Nectar from PMG,
Nude Lustre, Vintage Gold and Chestnut Glimmer from the Pixi Beauty Reflex Light palette, the gold shade from CT’s The Rebel 2020….all of them I love and use.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair & warm
Your go-to coral lipstick? My undertone is very yellow so true coral makes me look jaundiced. CT’s Pillow Talk is about as warm as I dare go.
Your go-to bronzer? Hourglass Ambient Light Bronzer
Your go-to gold eyeshadow? Catrice Kaviar Gauche. I go to a lot of Indian weddings so brilliant gold eyeshadow that lasts all day (and night) without looking crusty, creasing, or flaking off in heat & humidity is de riguer. Amazingly, this Catrice cheapie cream eyeshadow & liner does that with the most gleaming, brilliant 24 karat looking gold shade I have ever seen!

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertones, dark brown hair and eyes

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC Fanfare (actually, the first MAC lipstick I purchased)

Your go-to bronzer? MAC Trace Gold

Your go-to gold eyeshadow? MAC Amber Lights, although some might argue it’s a copper.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair (MAC NC17ish) with pink and yellow undertones, light brunette hair with blonde highlights and natural platinum “grays”
Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC Coral Polyp (yeah, it is an old one), Ablaze, Mangrove, Party Parrot or VG Cindy
Your go-to bronzer? Guerlain Blondes or the darkest “highlighter” in the Hourglass palette I have, which is dark enough to be a “bronzer,” rarely do I use bronzer, usually in the mid to late Autumn to make my complexion look less sallow or pale
Your go-to gold eyeshadow? I am not big on gold but when I do, it is the gold in the Jackie Aina ABH palette or the old standby’s MAC Goldmine or Retrospeck. If we are talking white gold, I like Claire De Lune from the Moonbathe collection and I will be so sad when I pan my only backup.
