Your skin tone/coloring: light, cool
Your go-to pink lipstick? MAC Sweetie
Your go-to neutral blush? don’t have one – blush for me has to be cool and look pinky/blushing
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Either the right side of NARS Kauai or UD’s Stormborn (from the Game of Thrones palette). Smashbox Riot Girl (from the Punked palette) is pretty nice too.

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? Lately it’s been Maybelline Color Sensational Cream Lipstick in Flush Punch.

Your go-to neutral blush? The last month or so, BareMinerals Blonzer in Kiss of Pink. It’s so pretty and has a blurring effect on my cheeks and a little bit of glow.

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? You cannot make me choose! I love purple eyeshadow most of all and have a ridiculous collection of it in all tones and finishes.

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

Your go-to pink lipstick? I don’t like pink-pink lipstick; I usually go with something more purple pink, like MAC Mehr (but Craving or Amorous)

Your go-to neutral blush? MAC Harmony

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? My go-to right now is MAC Sketch, since MAC discontinued my favorites (Shadowly Lady, Indian Ink)

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral
Your go-to pink lipstick? Colourpop Lumiere Lippie Stix – is as pink as I get these days
Your go-to neutral blush? Sydney Grace Time Stops
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Sydney Grace Regal. I used to wear a lot of purple, but I actually find it muddies my eye colour. I have hazel grey/green with a bit of bronze around the iris. Purple makes my eyes look muddy. Red or oranges enhance so much better.

Your go-to neutral blush? Honest Beauty Rose Pink.
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? I created a pretty purple smoky eye with Loveparade from the Berlin Underground palette by Nomad, and since then I’ve been using it a lot, in subtle eye looks as well.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Your go-to pink lipstick? I don’t wear pink lipstick, but my nearest to this would be Maybelline’s Mauve for Me lipstick.

Your go-to neutral blush? Again, I don’t wear a neutral blush but a coral one – The Balm’s Hot Mama is my current favourite.

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? I sometimes use UD’s Vice 2’s Voodoo, but nowadays I tend to use Mecca Max’s Eyephoria eyeshadow palettes purple (not named). A very pretty deep purple soft shimmer.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair & warm

Your go-to pink lipstick?
Estee Lauder’s Pink Parfait, a pale but slightly warm pink with a gorgeous pearl finish. Love the formula, moisturizing & very comforrtable wear for about 4 hrs, fades gracefully leaving a slight stain. Been wearing this since the 80s!

Your go-to neutral blush?
Essence Satin Love, a fave drugstore cheapie that never fails me! Applies beautifully diffuse, wears for at least 7 hrs. Its a perfect warm toned nude with an amazing true satin finish (so rare!).

Your go-to purple eyeshadow?
Bobbi Brown’s Black plum is a very dark, slightly cool toned matte that I have used for years as a liner. It really makes my hazel/green/gold eyes pop & lasts forever. But I heard it has been discontinued. Wah!

Your go-to pink lipstick? Pink has always been a tricky color for me with lipsticks because pinks often turn out too pale or too bright for me. But if I had to pick a favorite it would either be the Armani Lip Maestro in “Casual Pink” or Charlotte Tilbury “Pillow Talk”

Your go-to neutral blush? For my skin tone, a good neutral blush would either be the Colourpop Pressed Powder Blush in “Good Luck Charm”, Physician’s Formula “Wildflower”, or Tarte “Shimma & Shake”

Your go-to purple eyeshadow? The Colourpop It’s My Pleasure palette is one of my all-time favorite eyeshadow palettes, but if I had to pick a single eyeshadow it would be Clionadh “Enamel”

Skin tone/coloring: light neutral
Go-to pink lipstick: I don’t veer very far into the pink (esp blue-pinks) category unless it’s in the neutral pinks, so CT Pillow Talk is likely my go-to.
Go-to neutral blush:
Patrick Ta’s She’s so LA is pretty neutral and that’s def my go-to
Go-to purple eyeshadow:
Purple is way to 80s for me, back when I started wearing eyeshadow. It also makes me look really tired. I avoid the colour as a whole, on me or in my surroundings.

Your skin tone/coloring: light with pink undertones, though I’m tan now and not quite as pink as other times. 🙂
Your go-to pink lipstick? Hard to choose! I love pink lipstick, but I’ve been really enjoying YSL Rose st Germain lately and of course Velvet Beauty, which might be the best lipstick ever made.
Your go-to neutral blush? L’Oreal True Match C1 blush or MUG Love Letter.
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? I’m not that much of a purple eyeshadow gal but I love purple reign in the La Vie en Rose palette, mostly as a liner!

Helene Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Light, neutral, dark brown hair, grey/green eyes
Your go-to pink lipstick? I have many, depending on the rest of the makeup and what I’m wearing. If I can only chose one it’d have to be Maybelline Pink for Me.
Your go-to neutral blush? Right now it’s Hous Laboratories Bouquet, in a duo with highlighter Ribbon. I chose it because of Ribbon, the blush is warmer than I usually would chose, but it works surprisingly well for me.
Your go-to purple eyeshadow? Now that I can’t say, I have so many purples it’s impossible to pick one.
