Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium warm

Favorite warm-toned lipstick? Anything coral!

Favorite cool-toned blush? Lately maybe Urban Decay Quickie?

Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? I still like my Smashbox Fade To Black palette, even though I’ve had it for the longest time now!

■Your skin tone/coloring: light, cool, med brown hair, hazel eyes
■Favorite warm-toned lipstick? MAC Le Vie en Rouge or NARS Heatwave
■Favorite cool-toned blush? MAC Breath of Plum
■Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? UD Naked 2 seems functionally neutral and it is hands down my most used eyeshadow

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite warm-toned lipstick? you’re joking, right? I guess the warmest toned lipstick I have is Guerlain Habit Rouge
Favorite cool-toned blush? just the one? Oh dear…well, it’s between MAC Sweet Sentiment and Tarte Natural Beauty (I’m SO boring in this regard!)
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? Oooh – this is even tougher than the blush question! Probably the (now discontinued) Too Faced Velvet Revolver (from the original Natural Eye palette) or Inglot 349 or MUFE S556 Taupe Grey. I could probably list about 20 more, to be honest, as neutral eyeshadows are my drug of choice.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light warm (NC15)

Favorite warm-toned lipstick? my favorite all time lipstick is MAC Relentlessly Red. That’s warm, right? I think it could go either way, but it pulls warm on me anyway. I also like the color of Clique by ColourPop, but I find the CP formula tends to slide around my lips and I end up getting a ring around my mouth – clown lips!

Favorite cool-toned blush? I think I don’t own a single cool blush! Yikes! Maybe the little blush portion of the TF Soul Mates Bronzer is a little cooler, but I think it’s more neutral and I just use it swirled in with the bronzer portion anyway.

Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? I think I’m going to say MUG Latte. It runs slightly warm on it’s own but I’m warm toned so it looks more neutral on me. I use it literally every single time I wear eyeshadow; it goes with everything!

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Dark NW50
Favorite warm-toned lipstick? MAC La Vie En Rouge…I am OBSESSED!
Favorite cool-toned blush? NARS Couer Battant
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? Can’t answer this…I’m a warm kinda a girl and when I’m not, it’s straight cool tone. I don’t do the in between.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with pink undertones
Favorite warm-toned lipstick? Revlon Pink Truffle
Favorite cool-toned blush? Wet n Wild Heather Silk
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? Matte Singh from TheBalm is my favorite transition color ever. It might be a little on the warm side, but it is perfect!

◾Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Tan; match of the wk-Neutrogena Healthy Skin in Fresh Beige
◾Favorite warm-toned lipstick?: MAC Taupe
◾Favorite cool-toned blush?: NARS Oasis

Your skin tone/coloring: NW5/10
Favorite warm-toned lipstick? MAC Lady Danger, Revlon Rosewine,
Favorite cool-toned blush? MAC Full of Joy, Sleek Flushed
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? When it comes to singles I really couldn’t say I have one single favorite. But I like my Stila singles… La Douce, Go Lightly, Viola, Wheat. Also MAC Sumptuous Olive and MUG Twilight.

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair neutral; magenta hair, hazel/green eyes.

Favorite warm-toned lipstick? MAC La Vie En Rouge

Favorite cool-toned blush? Urban Decay Afterglow Blush in Rapture

Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? BareMinerals Eye Color in Bare Skin (pinkish-brown shimmer), MUFE I-544 Pink Granite, Jemma Kidd JK Hi-Design Eye Colour in Sashay (lavender taupe).

I guess my shadows are more cool than neutral, but I don’t really have a favorite true neutral. May MUFE Taupe Gray (It’s great for a true taupe)? Or the bottom row of the Tartelette palette. *shrugs*

Favorite warm-toned lipstick? Ilia These Days, Julep Electric Coral
Favorite cool-toned blush? Alima Pure Raspberry, Dior Rosy Glow 001 Petal
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? I don’t really have a favorite… UD Naked3 Palette or Alima Pure Luminous Shimmer ES in Brown Sugar. Once I get around to playing with the Viseart neutral matte palette it may well become a favorite.

Your skin tone/coloring: hella light, a bit warm

Favorite warm-toned lipstick? coral shades, I particularly like MAC Crosswires

Favorite cool-toned blush? Tarte Exposed or Hourglass Mood Exposure (although I don’t know if they’re cool toned…)

Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow? The Naked2 Basics palette springs to mind, and some shades from MAC

I seriously need some info on cool toned/warm toned. Can find tons of stuff about skin tones, but like none about makeup when I google it. If anyone has any info I’d welcome the education.

Favorite warm-toned lipstick?: Nars Audacious in Anita
Favorite cool-toned blush?: Clinique Blush in pink love
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow?: UD tease maybe? (it’s a bit tricky to work with but it’s great for crease work) and Satin Taupe (is that neutral?)

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

Warm Lipstick: I don’t do “warm” lips… I guess NYX Honey (round, black tube)…?

Cool Blush: MAC Brit Wit; I also use it as a contour.

Neutral Eyeshadow: Oh wow… Sooo many to choose from, LOL! I’m going to assume it’s something other than a transition shade, so I’ll go with NARS Ondine. I swear my dark brown eyes literally glow when I wear this!

Your skin tone/coloring: NW20

Favorite warm-toned lipstick?: Nars Audacious Lana!
Favorite cool-toned blush?: Colour Pop Shock Cheek in Thumper
Favorite neutral-toned eyeshadow?: MUFE S604 Teak? although I think this one is on more warm tone. I don’t think I had a favorite neutral toned eyeshadows
