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

Favorite cool-toned lipstick? I don’t have one, I’m definitely a warm toned lipstick fan. Even my reds are warm! I’ve kind of been eyeing Ruby Woo lately, since I L-O-V-E the Retro Matte formula (I’m a freak I know).

Favorite warm-toned blush? This is easy, since I like warm colors. My favorite blush for the summer is MAC New Romance, but for a more neutral look I adore Clinique Nude Pop.

Favorite cool-toned eyeliner? Hands down, UD Mildew. It’s a bright yet mossy green with gold undertones. It really brings out the brown and gold tones in my eyes. I’ve got a feeling I’ll be busting this out a ton come fall to pair with MAC Sumptuous Olive eyeshadow. (PS, Mildew also comes as an eyeshadow!)

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

Cool Lipstick: NYX Black Sesame; I can mix it with *any* nude, and it neutralizes any warm/peachy tones, and makes them wearable. I also like it with pinks, and even alone,

Warm Blush: NARS Madly is about as warm as I go… I was purging my stash recently, and I discovered an older LE Revlon blush in Naughty Or Spice; apparently, the lid was broken/unhinged when I bought it, and I stashed it away in a bin of “backups”.

Cool Eyeliner: L’Oréal Lineur Intense in Carbon Black…

■Favorite cool-toned lipstick? All my favorite lipsticks! I guess I’d say my desert island lipstick, NARS Funny Face even though I hate to pick just one.
■Favorite warm-toned blush? Tarte Tipsy because it’s the only one I own? I would like to have something like MAC Sunbasque though, maybe I’ll try it this summer.
■Favorite cool-toned eyeliner? UD Cuff (silver)

Kat Avatar

Sunbasque is gorgeous for the summertime, you just have to be careful not to over-apply! I find it quite pigmented on my fair skin even though it’s labelled a Sheertone. I usually apply it in the places I’d normally wear bronzer, not the places I’d normally wear blush. I’d really recommend you try it out!

Lotus Avatar

Oh, Nancy.. I finally tried all blushes and highlighters today.. My arm is a blended shade of rouge with sparkle AFTER oil, water, MAC wipes, KGD Spa water.. I found some favorites though! I think I should review how they turned on my skin color because it’s so different and may help others! ColourPop changes on everyone.. It was so fun to watch what they did! Wow! And whoa.. I didn’t remember ordering basically all of them.. Now I understand their “personal note” Thank you for your order! It seems you’re fully supplied with your vitamins ace.. ” I don’t ft it.. The pixi is dead in a Guerlsin coffin so I have no ultimate power source to offer advice.. Can you lend me a quarter, please? I’m highly waisted! 😀

Nancy T Avatar

Ahhh, the fair pixi may need to partake of a bit of Monster Pie to revive him back to life. Where he can spritely hop and jump for joy, and take his once wearied wings and FLY again!

◾Your skin tone/coloring: Medium Tan, yellow/olive undertones
◾Favorite cool-toned lipstick?: I tend to stay away from cool toned lipsticks the coolest ones I own is MAC Modesty and Milani Rose Femme. Cool tones lipsticks look odd on me, not bad, just odd enough that I feel self-conscious so I end up switching lipsticks half way through the day.
