Hahahaha! I must have a copper fave, but would have to look. The others are pretty much no-gos. Trying to get back into pink via mauve and griege-pink. Pink coral l/s looks dreadful, but a coral-orange, like Jungle Queen? is better. The funny thing is, back in the day, with pink undertones translucent skin, I could wear these easily. Now that my skin is more opaque, with red undertones, these look so wrong. It’s not a preference thing at all. I love them on others.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral, Estee Lauder Double Wear Desert Beige

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC Crosswires

Your go-to pink blush? Clinique Blushing Blush in Cupid. (The name “Blushing Blush” sounds like lazy marketing to me.) I just bought Chanel Joues Contraste in Pink Explosion, but I think I’ll save that for special days.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? I don’t wear copper very much, but I guess the closest would be Reef from Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Vol. 1 Eyeshadow Palette.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral undertones and freckles, medium warm brown hair and green/gray/blue eyes.

Your go-to coral lipstick? Right now it’s Physicians Formula The Healthy Lipstick in Tu-Lip Treatment.

Your go-to pink blush? I tend to stick to warmer peachy pinks and don’t really have a true pink in my collection at the moment. I’ve been on the lookout though!

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in KathleenLights.

Medium Warm (MAC NC30)

Coral lip: This changes weekly as I have so many beautiful coral lipsticks! This week it’s NARS Greta. I am also using NARS Precision Lip Liner in Menton (a gorgeous coral) all over my lips and topping with Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie in Birthday Babe or Peach Daiquiri.

Go to pink blush: MAC Pink Swoon, and Kingpen and Bumpy Ride from the NARS Wanted I Cheek Palette.

Go to copper eyeshadow: Have you seen Copperized in the Pat McGrath Bronze Ambition palette? Sooo pretty, especially next to gold shadow! I’m wearing it today and I love it ?

Your skin tone/ colouring: fair/ light, black hair, blue eyes

Your go-to coral lipstick? Dior Montmartre. It’s been discontinued, though. Of the ones that are still available, I like Charlotte Tilbury Lost Cherry and Pat McGrath Tropicalia a lot. Of course, I’m focusing on brighter orange-toned corals, rather than red-corals or pink-corals… It’s a difficult colour to define.

Your go-to pink blush? Between Becca Camelia and Benefit Galifornia. Both are flattering on me and serve as their own highlighters.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Probably the copper shade in Viseart’s Minx palette, although I’ll always have a soft spot for Mac’s Coppering.

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair

Your go-to coral lipstick? used to be Aerie Glow (similar to Too Faced Juicy Melons), but it’s long discontinued and used up. I’ve been more into pinky plums for a while so haven’t thought to replace!

Your go-to pink blush? Physicians Formula Happy Booster blush in Natural

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? L’Oreal Amber Rush for a pink copper—I don’t really like orange coppers.

Rachel R. Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Very fair with neutral undertones; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC La Vie En Rouge, MAC Saucy Little Darling

Your go-to pink blush? MAC Pink Cult, MAC Pink Sprinkles, Tarte Dollface, Tarte Whimsy (Pin-up Girl Palette), Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Talc-Free Mineral Airbrushing Blush in Rose

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? ColourPop Super Shock Shadow in Lala, ColourPop SSS in Game Face, LORAC Amber (Pro Metal Palette)

Monica Avatar

Skin tone: NC40

Coral lipstick: I am OBSESSED with coral lipsticks this time of year. My favorites are MAC See Sheer, Charlotte Tilbury Amazing Grace, and Bite Peche.

Pink blush: I only wear one blush, so NARS Orgasm.

Copper eyeshadow: hmmm. Whichever one is in the Mario palette. ?

Anne Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 w/some redness

Your go-to coral lipstick? MAC Crosswires

Deborah S. Avatar

Skin tone: Very pale and cool toned.

Go to coral lipstick: I don’t wear a lot of coral toned lipstick so the closest I can get is L’Oréal Colour Riche Shine in “Luminous Coral.”

Go to pink blush: Almost too many to name. Ciate Glow to Illuminate Blush in “Baby Doll” is a favorite as it is a gorgeous color and is slightly illuminating.

Go to copper e/s: Coloured Raine Queen of Hearts palette “Your Majesty” and L’Oréal “Amber Rush”

Mariella Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Your go-to coral lipstick? no such thing for me
Your go-to pink blush? big surprise – Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush (or whatever the heck it’s called)
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Probably Copperized from the Pat McGrath Bronze Ambition palette but I also really like Buxom’s Bronzed Bod which is more “copper” than “bronze”, I think.

Genevieve Avatar

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Your go-to coral lipstick? Coral lipstick is generally not what I wear – my daughter in law loves Too Faced’s Honey Bear (just like you Christine), Clarins Joli Rouge Perfect Tulip and perhaps the closest shade to coral I can get is Elizabeth Arden’s Honeysuckle shade.

Your go-to pink blush? No pink blushes for me – just peach.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? I have just started using coppery eyeshadows – Rose Gold and Amber in the Lorac Pro Metals palette are two lovely coppery shades

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones MAC NC37, Lancôme Teint Idole Foundation N360, Fenty ProFilt’r Foundation 260, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Your go-to coral lipstick? Either MAC La Vie En Rouge or UD Tilt. Also love MAC Make Me Gorgeous, too.

Your go-to pink blush? Nars Goulue, because it gives me rosy pink cheeks if I apply it with a light hand, or Laura Geller Pink Buttercream.

Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Oh, I’ve got a ton of those! Starting with some beauties in Smashbox Petal Metal Covershot Palette, then the brilliant copper in Viseart Minx Theory palette (middle right-hand side), CP Weenie and MAC Amber Lights.

Your skin tone/coloring: Too fair for direct sunlight. Fair or Light (often mixed) from IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer + Bye Bye Foundation… Basically a turbo moisturizing foundation. Double Wear Stay-in-Place 1N1 Ivory Nude matches alright but the formula hates my skin.

Your go-to coral lipstick: Summer lipstick from Melt, Radon pressed pigment from Melt (over light bright pinks & reds), Retro Coral + Neon Coral from ABH. Still crazy about those 2 colors. I usually use NYX retractable lipliner in Ruby, Mac High Energy, or Cherry with them.

Your go to pink blush: Meh, when I have time I’m still using ones I don’t love from Mac Dainty, Fleur Power, Swoon, some from IT Cosmetics. Any advice is appreciated!

Your go-to copper eyeshadow: I could use new products. I’ve been using Corrupt + Dusk pencils from Melt which are pretty copper. I need a Stila liquid shimmer/glitter eyeshadow or 2 and maybe something from Natasha Denona or LIT?

Nikki Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/cool skin (L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS 2.0 Mont Blanc), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde and blue strands.
Your go-to coral lipstick? I don’t wear coral-don’t think it would work on my cool skin.
Your go-to pink blush? The closest I have is L’Oreal True Match C7-C8 Spiced Plum super-blendable blush (it’s made for skin several shades darker than mine, but oddly enough it almost exactly matches my natural flush).
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? The copper shade (bottom left) from the Revlon Color Charge palette.

Skin is light neutral,. I love Mac Coral Bliss, Diorskin rosy glow in Petal or Mac Im into it for Blush, and my mostloved copper eyeshadow is coppering by Mac.

Belle Avatar

Coloring: light with neutral/cool leaning undertones, medium ash blonde hair, very green eyes

Coral lipstick: Mac Pretty Boy (in honor of my husband 😉 )

Pink Blush: Benefit Rockateur

Copper Eyeshadow: ABH Wine (weird name) for subdued, the middle color from the Viseart Minx palette for more drama

Kendra Kammer Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: light-medium neutral
Your go-to coral lipstick? Maybe more orange than coral but I’ve been loving the Sephora Rouge Infusion Lip Stain in Tangerine. I’m not sure they sell it anymore. I’ve had it forever but i just got into it lately.
Your go-to pink blush? Elf twinkle pink, though pink is really not my go-to. My go-to is more rose/red and is Paradise by Manna Kaspar Cosmetics. Cheap, but I love it!
Your go-to copper eyeshadow? Jelly Pong Pong’s Supercharged Super Intense Eyeshadow Duo in Electric, which I got in Ipsy a little while ago. I just dab this on with my finger. One and done!
