Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair and neutral/ cool, black hair, blue/ grey eyes

Favorite bronzer? I don’t really use bronzer, since I like my pale face, but I have been using Guerlain’s Jolie Teint in Blonde Clair 00. It gives a bit of a warm glow, without making my face look dirty.

Favorite highlighter? Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Diffused Light.

Favorite everyday blush? Nars Deep Throat or Yves St. Laurent Passionée

Meghan Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: light with yellow undertones
Favorite bronzer? Charlotte Tilbury filmstar bronzer
Favorite highlighter? MAC lightscapade, CT filmstar, Becca Rose Gold Powder
Favorite everyday blush? Oh man so many. Benefit Dallas, Rockateur, MAC Ripe for Love (wore this one on my wedding day), Modern Mandarin, Hourglass (all of them, haha), MUG (all too ). Blushes are my weak spot! MUFE 220.

Kat Avatar

I’m trying to stop myself from buying like all of the Hourglass blushes. They’re just so lovely. And did you see they released Incandescent Electra from the LE blush palette individually? I just about died!

Kat Avatar

I missed out on the palette, so I’m really excited! And it’s nice to see a brand add a super popular LE item to their permanent range (MAC should listen).

Olivia Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Usually warm light-medium but I just got back from vacation and I got an epic tan! So I would say right now I am a solid warm medium!
◾Favorite bronzer? Have yet to find one that I am obsessed with. I use my Lancôme Star Bronzer in Solaire every day and I am almost out but I am ready for a different on so I am going to read everybody else’s suggestions here!
◾Favorite highlighter? I love Hourglass Ambient Lighting for a subtle glow. Becca in Rose Gold for a little more.
◾Favorite everyday blush? Milani Luminoso gives me life. Literally, livens my face without looking made up. I also love NARS Sin, it’s the right color for me to look natural in the day but I can go heavier for a night look.

◾Favorite highlighter: Benefits SunBeam and Bobbi Brown Bronze (natural on me, not bronze)
◾Favorite everyday blush: La Femme Orange

Sarah Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium-deep with yellow undertones
Favorite bronzer?: I don’t bronze much as they’re usually too light for me to see a difference. Looking forward to trying Dark Chocolate Soleil by Too Faced and the new MUFE luminous ones!
Favorite highlighter: I don’t really highlight because my skin is already luminous and pretty oily as well. Maybelline Master Hi Light in Deep Bronze serves as my highlught/bronze/blush in one!
Favorite everyday blush: nars orgasm, although Deep Throat might be a better match for my skin tone! Orgasm is really barely there on me and could honestly work as just a highlight on me!

xamyx Avatar

I’m on the fairer end of the spectrum (in between NARS Siberia & Deauville), and Orgasm is very subtle on me, as well! I bought the mini Orgasm/Laguna duo on impulse to see the hype for myself, but I find the pairing nice, but I can’t wear Orgasm alone…

Sarah Avatar

I also bought the duo, just to try it out! Laguna does nothing for me…it can do the faintest bronzing for me… Or heck, I could probably use it as a face powder! I really have to build and layer orgasm to get the faintest flush, but I’ve been leaning towards this sort of no blush, highlighted cheeks look, so I’ve liked it. I bet it’s just gorgeous on someone with your skintone though!

Favorite highlighter? MAC Bao Bao Wan Beauty Powder
Favorite everyday blush? Tie between Lancome Blush Subtil in Cosmopolitan Pink or Urban Decay Bittersweet (I didn’t expect to love Bittersweet as much as I do but it so blendable, buildable, and workable!)

Celia Avatar

.Skin Tone/Coloring: Fairest Neutral Porcelain with cool-leaning features (eyes,hair, lips).
.Favorite Bronzer: Bronzer is one kind of makeup I’m not big on regarding myself. Because I’m so pale and have learned to love and embrace my coloring, I’m not keen on making it look tanned. But occasionally we all need some warmth. I like the only bronzers I have which are Guerlain Terracotta in Light Blonde, ColourPop Bon Voyage, and ColourPop Paradise Cove. If I need a warmer look on stage, I may add a little Guerlain Joli Teint into my foundation but usually I just embrace the neutrality 😛
. Favorite Highlighter: The all-time favorite is the sadly dc’d NARS Adelaide Illuminator. It was the perfect mix of pink and lilac for me. But my highlighter addictions keeps me well-stocked. Chanel Camelia De Plumes, Burberry 02 Golden Radiance, ColourPop Monster/Hippo/Sticky Sweet/Smokin’Whistles, NARS Copacabana/413 BLKR/Albatross, Kevyn Aucoin Celestial Skin Liquid, Geek Chic Cosmetics Everlasting Storm/Bioluminescent Blue, RMS Living Luminizer, and I’m sure 100 more I’m forgetting.
.Favorite Everyday Blush: NARS Mati Hari/Exhibit A/G-Spot/Deep Throat/Coeur Battant, Bobbi Brown Pale Pink, tonymoly Milky Violet, etc.

Kat Avatar

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

Favorite bronzer? Currently I’ve been reaching for the bronzer portion of the Too Faced Soul Mates in Ross/Rachel. It’s quite warm, so a lot of people might not like it and it can’t be used as contour, but it identically matches the color the skin across my collarbone turns when I tan!

Favorite highlighter? Hands down the Josie Maran liquid highlighter is my most used. It’s so gorgeous mixed into a matte foundation when I want a little glow, and since it’s bronzier than my skin tone, it makes me look so healthy during the summer. I have some others that I love (cream and powder) but I don’t use those nearly as much as I do the Josie Maran.

Favorite everyday blush? I like to switch up my blush a lot, but my top two I’ve been using are Clinique Cheek Pop in Nude or MAC Mineralize blush in New Romance.

Ginny Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Very pale, NW5
Favorite bronzer? Sephora Sol del Rio (DC’d), Sleek blush in Suede, Clinique Nude Pop

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool
Favorite bronzer? I prefer more of a contour look for my skin tone. I currently use Kevyn Aucoin in Duo #4 and top it off with a little hit of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim and Radiant. When I fancy a bit of a bronzed look, I pop on Tarte Amazonian Clay Mineral Bronzer.

Mariella Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite bronzer? I actually HAVE one now!!!! Yay! It’s Clarins Aquatic Treasures bronzer that is LE for this summer. I had a heck of a time finding it as it was sold out at the first 3 stores I called and I got the last one at the SDM that did have it (otherwise, I might be going back there to buy a backup, which is insane coming from me…I never would have believed it)
Favorite highlighter? TheBalm Mary Loumanizer and Guerlain Cruel Gardenia (which I despair of using up)
Favorite everyday blush? Still the same – Tarte Natural Beauty, followed in close second by MAC Sweet Sentiment.

Favorite highlighter? Too Faced Candlelight; Notoriously Morbid Osteomancy

Favorite everyday blush? I change every day. Lately: Sleek Life’s a Peach; Milani Rose Petal Blush in Coral Cove, UD Afterglow in Rapture, Clinique Pansy Pop.

Brittney Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: MAC NC15

Favorite bronzer? I’ve never actually used bronzer. I’m pretty pale so it’s just never been something I’ve thought about using.

Favorite highlighter? I only own one..It’s MAC and I think it’s perfect topping? I like it but I would actually like to try others.

Favorite everyday blush? I never used to think about blush much but here lately I’ve kind of become a bit obsessed. Some of my favorites are MAC At Dusk/Pink Cult/Unconventional/Amber Glow. I also really like Tarte’s Celebrated and Clinique Cheek Pops in Nude Pop, Melon Pop, and Pansy Pop and Urban Decay Score and Rapture (see..I’m a bit obsessed. A couple of years ago I would’ve only owned one blush if any lol).

Blue Avatar

■Your skin tone/coloring: light, cool skin, hazel eyes, med brown hair
■Favorite bronzer? Can’t say I wear it enough to have a favorite. I have one by Smashbox and it seems very shimmery but it’s kind of nice?
■Favorite highlighter? Love the highlighter. Becca Pearl (poured), Benefit Highbeam, and MAC Pearl are all awesome variations of basically the same thing. The MAC one might be the most buildable, the Benefit might actually be the “pearliest” looking despite not being named that, and the Becca might be the most natually radiant looking and longest wearing.
■Favorite everyday blush? Becca Watermelon Beach Tint or Tarte Flush Cheek Stain. The Becca is more pigmented and blushy pink but the Tarte has a very pleasing dewy appearance thanks to the glycerin in there. 🙂

Favorite highlighter? theBalm Mary Lou-Manizer, Colourpop Monster, Babydoll Beauty Cosmetics Mermaid Skin.
Favorite everyday blush? Chanel Frivole

Gillian Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Fairest neutral. White foundation mixer is my friend. 😛

Favorite bronzer? I rarely use bronzer but when I do I like to use Rouge Bunny Rouge At Goldcombe Bay. It’s not too dark and just gives me a bit of colour.

Favorite highlighter? It really depends on the situation. For everyday I use Shiseido Lumimizing Satin Face Color in white for a very slight sheen. For a proper glow I love Rouge Bunny Rouge Sea of Tranquillity liquid highlighter.

Favorite everyday blush? I always go back to the MAC Mineralize blushes. I’m a sucker for a shimmery blush. I tend to use Dainty but I would love to wear Moon River instead, however it was limited edition and my first one is nearly used up. I’m loathed to touch my backup. :/

Codename Duchess Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair-Light and cool (NW20)
Favorite bronzer? I don’t use bronzer
Favorite highlighter? MAC Lightscapade
Favorite everyday blush? MAC Daft Pink Mineralized blushor Too Faced Candy Glow Perfect Flush Blush

Anne Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Hella pale

Favorite bronzer? Am pretty wary of it because I’m so pale, but I was just gifted the CT Filmstar Bronze and Glow (with the powder & contour brush!) so I’ll be playing around with the bronzer/contour from there.

Favorite highlighter? I’m really liking the highlighter from the CT FB&G palette, and for liquid highlighters I reach for the Body Shop Radiant Highlighter or my “travel size” Becca Opal.

Favorite everyday blush? I tend to reach for the Hourglass Blush palette a lot- Mood Exposure in the Fall/Winter months, and Incandescent Electra in the Spring/Summer, though some days when I’m looking for a less coral look I’ll reach for the pinker shade in the palette, Luminous Flush. Tarte Exposed is another of my often-reached-for ones as it’s a very natural blush.

Megz Avatar

NW 20 – 25, black – brown hair, olive -hazel eyes

Bronzer: not a huge fan, I’m really pink toned. Wet N Wild 702 was my favorite when I was more into that look. The rare times I go for it now I go for MAC Sincere blus.

Highlighter: MAC Lightscapade is my fave

Everyday blush: 3 way tie between Blushbaby, Mocha,and Prism.

Erica Avatar

Skin tone: Medium Dark with yellow undertones. NC50. Summer Estee Lauder Double Wear in Sandalwood.

Favorite Bronzer: Guerlain Terra Cotta Bronzer Ebony #8, sparingly.

Favorite Highligher: It’s summertime! Is there such a thing as “a” favorite highlighter in the summer? My current “faves” are Mac’s Magnetic Appeal, “the Beccas” esp. Rose Gold (poured) & Blushed Copper (pressed powder) & currently, the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess Powder Gelee. It’s a nice peachy highlighter for brown skin.

Favorite everyday blush: for summer my go-to blushes are Nars Liberte, Nars Taj Mahal and Tom Ford’s Savage. Taj Mahal and Savage are so shimmery and stellar that I wouldn’t dare use highlighter. It would be overkill. These superstars stand on their own.

Raya Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium cool, nw25

Favorite bronzer: Nars Laguna

Favorite highlighter: use rarely, but Dior Amber Diamond is my favorite. Have backups.

Favorite everyday blush: Burberry Tangerine and Illamasqua naked rose.

Fave highlighter: all,lol..probably Colour Pop Highly Waisted or Butterfly Beach at the moment
Everyday blush: Colourpop. Jellyfish

Nancy T Avatar

Skintone/Coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones MAC C4.5 Studio Fix liquid, deep brunette, teal-green w/gold flecks for eyes.
Favorite bronzer: atm, it’s ColourPop Poolside, it could be a just *smidgen* darker, but it does still give me that sunkissed healthy look!
Favorite highlighter: MAC Summer Wind from the Maria Moretti collection, ColourPop Butterfly Beach, Highly Waisted and Monster. And Nyx Barely There, it’s an old eyeshadow, but I love it as a face highlight.
Favorite Blush: Clinique Cola Pop, ColourPop Quarters and Pie, Nyx Pinched (still a winner!).

Becca Moonstone/Estee Lauder Courreges
Mally Airbrush Pink blush and her highlighter duo or MAC Dainty

LMM Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/Neutral-warm

Favorite bronzer? The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 01. I don’t use it to contour, but it mimics the slightly reddish color of a natural tan on me (if I didn’t just burn first, ha – hence the use of sunscreen and bronzer)

Favorite highlighter? Josie Maran Argan liquid.

Favorite everyday blush? Colourpop Holiday or Benefit Dallas (which I also use as bronzer when going minimal)

Maggie Avatar

Skintone: NC 20-25 (light olive, neutral-to-warm)
Favorite Bronzer: for an ACTUAL bronzer (for sun-kissed looking skin–not for contouring) that would be Too Faced Bronzed and Poreless Bronzer. There is no shimmer, natural finish and hardly any red–it’s perfect for me. For contouring, I like MAC Sculpt.
Favorite Highlighter: I mostly use concealer to highlight. That’s typcially Smashbox Photofinish or Maybelline Dream Lumi.
Favorite Everyday Blush: Tarte Dollface

Tam Avatar

Bronzer: Wet n Wild Princess/Cargo Bronzer Dark
Highlighter: Becca Opal (I purchased because it gorg, but not sure how an oily skin gal could put this to use

Laura_Lou Avatar

Your skin tone/colouring : Very pale, cool toned, red hair, Bobbi Brown Porcelain, MAC NW10

Favourite Bronzer : I don’t really wear bronzer because they all seem so dark and orange on my pale skin. I like The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in Light, I also use Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow in 30.

Favourite highlighter : I love MAC CCB in Pearl and Benefit High Beam for a cream/liquid highlight. For powders, Guerlain Parure de Nuit is a beautiful sheer sheen type and for a more obvious highlight is really like Guerlain Cruel Gardenia.

Favourite everyday blush : this one is easy! MAC BlushBaby for powder and Bobbi Brown Powder Pink Pot Rouge for cream. I’ve hit pan on both twice.

Apologies before hand, I can never pick just one!

Your skin tone/coloring: ~ Light/Neutral

Favorite bronzer? ~ NARS Laguna, Too Faced Milk Chocolate, and NYX eyeshadow in Taupe…Love them all!

Favorite highlighter? ~ NARS Copacabana Multiple in winter or Illuminator in Orgasm for summer, but my all time everyday is Josie Maran’s Radiance…it’s not as intense as the Illuminators, it’s perfection really!

Favorite everyday blush? By Terry Hyaluronic Blush-Hydra Veil Print Flush in Nudissimo or Peach Posh

◾Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral. NW1, NW15
◾Favorite bronzer? I’m new to the bronzer scene, only tried 3 so far and I like MAC bronzer in Golden the most for my skin tone. Smashbox Bronze Lights in Suntan Matte is good as well.
◾Favorite highlighter? Ohh. Mary-Lou Manizer, I guess, if I had to pick only one to be left with.
◾Favorite everyday blush? MAC Warm Soul. I did hear that in the new packaging it is not the same as in the old one, thankfully, I am sure it will last ages for me, so I’m not worried. I find MAC Please Yourself really flattering for my skin tone, but it’s crazy shimmery 🙂

Favorite everyday blush? Hourglass Ethereal Glow

Ellen Avatar

Skin tone: fair with cool undertones, currently using MAC NW15 in the Minerslize moisture foundation, or Nars Mt. Blanc sheer glow.

Favorite bronzer: the one Tom Ford made for Estee Lauder right before he started his own line. Its not orange at all, has a little taupe shimmer in it. Was a huge compact, so I actually have some left, but I don’t think I am ever going to find a dupe for this one;

Highlighter: have very fair skin, so highlighters are hard to find. I like Hourglass Ethereal Ambiant Light for a slight highlight, I have MAC Lightscape, but it turns a drop gray on me. So still working that one out.

Your skin tone/coloring: N-NC 15 Fair w/ neutral to warm undertones. Blonde, green eyes
Favorite bronzer? Sephora Los Cabos. Just bought Too Faced Chocolate Soleil in Milk Chocolate, but I’m still on the fence if I like the color or not. Definitely not for all over it to warm up a pale foundation and contouring, like they did it at Sephora. I looked like an Oompa Loompa lol
Favorite highlighter? NARS Albatross
Favorite everyday blush? Benefit Coralista blush with Benefit Cha Cha tint

UPDATE on bronzer and blush
Your skin tone/coloring: N-NC 15 Fair w/ neutral to warm undertones. Blonde, green eyes
Favorite bronzer: Stila Stay All Day in Light. Looks very natural on. Really nice.
Favorite highlighter: NARS Albatross
Favorite everyday blush: Just bought Illamasqua Velvet Blusher in Flirtatious on Ebay, after a long search. I don’t buy makeup from non-authorized stores, but this was the ONLY one I could find, the seller had 100% feedback and I couldn’t find any info on fake Illamasqua makeup, so I hope I’ll be ok. If you look it up on sold items on eBay and think it’s fake, please let me know!! TY xoxo
