Your skin tone/coloring: Fair
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Eye Pencil in Lake Geneva (teal)
Favorite long-wearing foundation? It Cosmetics CC+ Cream in Light
Favorite cream blush formula? Flower Beauty Blush Bomb in Pinched

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral, green eyes, salt & pepper hair

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Marc Jacobs Highliner (I have it in several colors)

Favorite long-wearing foundation? Estée Lauder Double Wear

Favorite cream blush formula? The closest I have are a couple of Colourpop Super Shock blushes, which seem to be a cross between cream and powder. I rarely use them, though, as I prefer powder.

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

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? I don’t usually use eyeliners for a pop of color, especially in the waterline, as I don’t like how they feel. I stick to colorful eyeshadow.

Favorite long-wearing foundation? The only foundation that I have that claims to be long-wearing is the L’Oreal Infallible 24 hour Fresh Wear foundation and I’m still trying to figure out if I like it or not. My other foundations/BB creams are very light coverage and tend to wear down in a natural way, which I prefer.

Favorite cream blush formula? I really like the ND cream blush formula, as it’s buildable, but you can layer it under or over powder. Second is the Pixi Multibalm stick formula (which they are discontinuing!).

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Right now Givenchy Kohl Couture Waterproof retractable in shade 06 Lilac. Very spring like.
Favorite long-wearing foundation? L’oreal. Infallible Fresh Wear
Favorite cream blush formula? Can’t say that I have one. I’ve ditched all my older cream blushes, Chanel and Illamasqua were two historical favs, but out of concern about them turning, I ditched them so hold only powders at this point.

Pop of color eyeliner: My favorite is Urban Decay in Mars. I have had the Linda Hallberg Moods crayon kit on my wishlist for some time and I know if I got them, pops of color on my waterline would happen more frequently.

Long-lasting foundation: CoverFX Power Play is bulletproof for me.

Cream blushes: Not creams exactly, but NARS liquid blushes are outstanding.

I like the Nars liquid blushes too but I wish they’d come out with a true pink shade with a bit of shimmer, sort of like the liquid Orgasm shade but more pink or rose. Dolce Vita is a nice shade but it’s so matte. If they had a slightly shimmer version of that or something like Angelika but in the liquid formula, I’d be rushing out to buy it!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral, black hair, blue eyes
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color?
Years back, YSL did a version of their liquid liner in conjunction with the launch of their Baby Doll mascara that bore the same name. It was a slightly rusty pink and it remains the most gorgeous coloured liner I’ve ever bought. Pops of colour on my lower lash lines often don’t work very well on me. The best one for adding impact that I’ve found was the Anastasia metallic liner in Gold. So, of course, it got discontinued.

Favorite long-wearing foundation?
Fenty Pro Filt’r. One of my favourite foundations ever.

Favorite cream blush formula?
Rituel de Fille. I haven’t been impressed with every product from the brand but their cream blush is next level. Gives a gorgeous, dewy but never greasy look, blends beautifully and lasts longer than any other formula on me.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? it’s not really a liner at all but rather UD’s Double Dip shadow pressed like a liner under my lower lashes; if I want a pencil version, something like Sephora’s now discontinued Surfer Babe works well
Favorite long-wearing foundation? Diorskin Forever Foundation (the older formula, which I fear may be discontinued now also)
Favorite cream blush formula? I’m not a huge fan of cream blush but I do like the Shiseido Minimalist Whipped Powder Blush (does that count as “cream”?) and I also quite like Tata Harper’s Lip and Cheek Tint. I only wish more shades were available “in store” – I have “Very Popular” (aptly named) which is the only one available in-store but I’d like to try either Very Naughty or Very Charming before buying either one…

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium, neutral to warm.
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Any of the Marc Jacobs Highliners.
Favorite long-wearing foundation? I don’t wear foundation.
Favorite cream blush formula? Stila Convertible Color.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-medium with warm yellow undertones

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? I’m not into too colorful stuff, for me `pop of color` in an eyeliner means a deep cool forest green (I currently have MAC Devotion) or a dark plum (I always have a MAC Prunella in my stash).

Favorite long-wearing foundation? Estee Lauder Double Wear, MAC Prolongwear Waterproof and Becca Ultimate Coverage; sorry, but I’m not sorry I can’t choose between the three of them. 😆

Favorite cream blush formula? Lipstick as a blush if I don’t have any powder at hand??? I never used cream blushes, I just prefer powders; I only tried once a liquid blush from ELF (received for free with an order) and it was enough to decide blushes for me will only be powder.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; magenta/red hair; hazel/green eyes.

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? UD 24/7 Eye Pencils in Mars, Junkie, Deep End, Psychedelic Sister, and Woodstock. MAC Fluidline in Blue Peep.

Favorite long-wearing foundation? Lancome Teint Idole 24H Long Wear Foundation

Favorite cream blush formula? ColourPop Super Shock Blush; MUFE HD Blush

Your skin tone/coloring: By my name.

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? I tend to stay neutral with eyeliner but I am enjoying a Nyx pencil in Bleu Bohemien. I also use the purple from Viseart Soleil as liner by mixing with Duraline.

Favorite long-wearing foundation? Long-wearing foundations tend to look awful on me so I don’t wear them. I am constantly trying samples and am always disappointed.

Favorite cream blush formula? ColourPop Super Shock, most definitely.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite eyeliner to add a pop of color? I don’t use eyeliner, but if I did, it would probably be a dark teal shade or a gold.

Favourite long-wearing foundation? At the moment I am loving the L’Oreal True Match foundation in Porcelain Rose and it seems to last all day. It very cost effective too as it is often on sale.

Favourite cream blush formula? I don’t use a cream blush, but my EA Ceramides blush in Sweet Peach has a powder/cream kind of feel to it.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20, med brown hair and eyes

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Don’t have one. I rarely wear a colored liner for a pop of color effect

Favorite long-wearing foundation? MAC Prolongwear Nourishing Foundation or Loreal Infallible Pro Matte

Favorite cream blush formula? Don’t have one. Don’t wear cream blush

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/pink undertones, dark brown highlighted hair, hazel eyes.
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? MJ eyeliners.
Favorite long-wearing foundation? haven’t really found a good one yet, but I’m taking notes on what everyone else has commented on.
Favorite cream blush formula? any ND

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair
Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Marc Jacobs (Grape)vine Highliner (purple)
Favorite long-wearing foundation? Covergirl Outlast Stay Fabulous (I’ll often mix it with something more hydrating to get more longevity out of it. Otherwise, have to make sure my skin is really well moisturized/prepped as I have dry skin)
Favorite cream blush formula? Kaja cheeky stamp is a cushion and has some nice luminosity without being over the top

Skin tone/coloring:
Fair-light neutral

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color:
I don’t wear it, just sometimes a black wing, but I’ve been using the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Pink of Me in my lower waterline to brighten my eyes.

Favorite long-wearing foundation:
Tarte Face Tape in fair-light neutral or Huda FauxFilter in Macaroon.

Favorite cream blush formula:
Never wear it, except Natasha Denona Bloom Blush & Glow cream blush.

Favorite eyeliner to add a pop of color? Urban Decay Stash, which is surprising to me since I have grey-blue eyes but I love the way it looks.

Favorite long-wearing foundation? I don’t wear it.

Favorite cream blush formula? So far Nudestix Matte Nudies All Over. I just received a shipment of Daniel Sandler liquid blush (not technically a cream) in the mail and haven’t had a chance to play with it yet but I’m really anxious to try it, I’m hoping it will dethrone the Nudestix because the colors are amazing and I’ve heard so many great things about it.
