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

Favorite fall lip product? Bite Beauty Virgo (also great for the holiday season), PMGL Beautiful Creature, Black Moon Harvest, Nivea Lip Balm in Blackberry

Favorite fall cheek product? My cheek products pretty much stay the same year round, but I do enjoy more mauvey blushes and cheek stains this time of year because they mimic what it looks like when I’ve come in from the cold.

Favorite fall eye product? Jewel toned eyeshadows and TONS of mascara.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light neutral skin tone, green eyes, s&p hair

Favorite fall lip product? Estée Lauder Knockout Nude (I fell like I’ve already mentioned this lipstick a zillion times over the past couple weeks.)

Favorite fall cheek product? Lately, I’ve been loving my two Clinique Cheek Pops (Berry and Peach). Not sure if either of them qualify as a fall color.

Favorite fall eye product? The MAC single eyeshadows I recently bought (Cranberry, Twinks, Woodwinked).

Your skin tone/coloring: medium-tan olive
Favorite fall lip product? NARS Bette and NARS Linda
Favorite fall cheek product? Don’t change these much but maybe NARS sin
Favorite fall eye product? Bobbi brown camel eyeshadow, Mac bronze eyeshadow

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep with neutral undertones

Favorite fall lip product? Nars Train Bleu or Diva from Mac or Sandstorm from Wet n Wild.

Favorite fall cheek product? Cinnamon Spice Jordanna Blush and Exhibit A from Nars.

Favorite fall eye product? None tbh

I have fair skin/neutral to warm coloring, light green eyes and salt and pepper hair that used to be auburn.
I love my Rebellious Rose Estee Lauder lipstick. Now that we’re into the colder part of fall, I use balm at night for dryness. I also love my Urban Decay Ravenwood lipstick, which is just as flattering, but slightly less hydrating.
I haven’t found a cheek product I’m thrilled with yet. Something in my chemistry tends to turn cheek color (and foundation) vivid orange, so I’ve stuck with my Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Blush in Alluring Rose.
This is the season I always look best, so I’m usually playing with my UD Naked2 palette, or their NakedBasics2, or the ColourPop “Give It to Me Straight” Palette.
I’m looking forward to some good recommendations for a solid blush/highlighter duo from everyone else!

My skin tries to turn products orange, too. If you don’t use a face primer, try that, at least under where you put blush. I also find powdering over my foundation, and then putting on powder blush over that, helps a lot. I hope you find something that works. Good luck!

Maybe try a cooler cream blush to counteract the orange? I love the Ulta Beauty Cream blush in Sunrise; we have similar skin tones and blush tends to do something similar on me. Sunrise has just enough warmth once it’s blended out, but because it’s a cooler color, it looks kind of neutral-to-pink on me. I hope you find something that works for you!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with moderate pink undertones, dark brown hair, green eyes
Favorite fall lip product? I’m still wearing my fave glosses with some lovely fall smokey eyes.
Favorite fall cheek product? I really like the Clinique blushes that you recommended. I have the trio from last year and adore the middle shade for fall!
Favorite fall eye product? I have been enjoying the Tati Beauty palette, Smoke Show, and Viseart Dark Edit most. Smoke Show with the super shocks on top…so gorgeous!

What would your answers be, Christine? (I just realized I don’t know if you answer these…lol.)

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

I don’t believe in seasons in make-up, I just wear whatever I like, whenever I want… but playing with the theme…

Favorite fall lip product? MAC Diva (but let’s be honest, I’ll wear a dark burgundy year round)
Favorite fall cheek product? MAC Trace of Gold (some might think it as a summer shade, but bronzy coppers remind me of fall)
Favorite fall eye product? It’s not a specific product, but antique copper tones (either eyeshadow or eye liner)

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite fall lip product? It’s been long discontinued but it would still have to be Clarins Rouge Prodige in Redwood. Of current lipsticks, either MAC Craving (it’s my perfect “every season” lipstick) or Smashbox Legendary
Favorite fall cheek product? Dior Rosy Glow Awakening Blush
Favorite fall eye product? Either Chanel Blurry Grey quad or Dior Bonne Etoile 5-pan (LE from a few years ago).

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name! (Blue-green eyes)

Favorite fall lip product? All the red, rusty coppery, or rich berry lipsticks! CP x Safiya Nygaard Berry Me In Lipsticks, YSL x Zoe Kravitz Scout’s Red, Mac VGI & III, Paramount and Diva, UD Manic and Disturbed.

Favorite fall cheek product? Nars Holiday 2018 cheek palette, MAC Burnt Pepper and UD Rapture blushes. Again, berries and rich reddish coppers.

Favorite fall eye product? Hmmm…are we sensing a theme? ABH Mod Ren, PMG Midnight Sun and Bronze Seduction Mothership palettes, and now TF Honeymoon just joined the pack! But I also love olive greens and golds this time of year, so UD Naked Honey and ND Mini Gold, too.

Safiya Nygaard. Are they gone? I try not to cruise CP every day. CP is not always clear about what is going to be restocked. Annoying, if you cannot determine.

Thanks. Is that info available on the site, as in where do you find it? Tried and failed. I realize I’m in question mode and contributing zero today. But curiosity is my middle name, especially if I’ve been foxed at getting the answer. We’re so spoiled by the internet, with instant gratification on all info. Hard to believe I lived most of my life without it.

Your skin tone/coloring: Deep Dark Neutral
Favorite fall lip product?
The darker the better! Coloured Raine Chocolip is a staple! But I have been into more reddish browns like Pat McGrath’s Unnatural Natural and Flesh 3.
Favorite fall cheek product?
Mac Hard to Get blush and Bare Minerals But First, Coffee blush
Favorite fall eye product?
I love metallic creams like the Colour Pop super shock shadows or matte, deep looks.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, MAC NC 15-20

Favorite fall lip product? Too Faced Melted Chocolate liquid lip in Chocolate Milkshake.

Favorite fall cheek product? Hourglass Mood Exposure or MAC ED Blush in Hushed Tone

Favorite fall eye product? ABH Modern Renaissance, Subculture or Prism palettes

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favourite fall lip product? A bronzey russet lip shade is my favourite: Milani’s Cinnamon Spice, Clarin’s Joli Rouge Spicy Cinnamon, CP’s LA Lady, Tea Thyme and Gallop, Sephora’s Festival Lights, Maybelline’s Spice for Me.

Favourite fall cheek product? Always the same – a peachy/coral shade. EA’s Sweet Peach.

Favourite fall eye product? I like antique golds, bronzes, warm browns, olive, smoky blue and now plum shades: Maybelline’s Burgundy Bar, Chanel’s Tisse D’Automne, bareMinerals The Playlist and Soft and Smokey and Vice 2.
Naked 2

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

I don’t really base products/colors on seasons, but I’ll play along.

Favorite fall lip product? I’ve really been enjoying UD Vice Lipstick in Zealot this fall. This week, I’m loving the new MAC Lipglass in Counting Stars over Milani Statement Lipstick in Dulce Caramelo. Long-time favorites include Bite Beauty Amuse Bouche Lipsticks in Spiced Plum and Black Truffle, and UD Vice in 1993.

Favorite fall cheek product? I do tend to wear my darker/brighter plum blushes a lot more in fall. NARS Blissful, and Sleek Pomegranate are my usual favorites, but newcomer Dior Plum Pop Diorskin Nude Luminizer Blush Review might supplant them.

Favorite fall eye product?

*ABH Modern Renaissance Palette gets regular use all year long, and the reds and browns are perfect for fall.

*Notoriously Morbid’s e/s in Autumn Flower and My Pretty Zombie’s e/s in Everything Looks Better on a Meat Hook are both beautiful bruised reddish shades with teal shifts and sparkles, with MPZ’s version being darker and having more pronounced and deeper teal shift. They feel very autumnal and make for easy one-and-done looks and grungy eye looks.

*Sydney Grace’s Autumn’s Reign Palette is pretty fabulous, with a perfect selection of warm neutrals and jewel tones, and an incredible formula.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair neutral

Favorite fall lip product: Dior Rouge lipstick in 999

Favorite fall cheek product: not a specific product, but this time of the year is festive so I amp up the highlight but layering powder highlight over liquid highlight and maybe even a touch of shimmer

Favorite fall eye product: Holidays are approaching, time to break out my stila glitters 😀

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name; brunette hair, green eyes.

Favorite fall lip product? Sunbum SPF sunscreen. Bobbi Brown Lipstick in Nude Rose (discontinued; in my project pan).

Favorite fall cheek product? The Balm Instain blush in Toile (in my project pan, but I actually do like it a lot) and Chanel Soleil Tan De Chanel base.

Favorite fall eye product? Bobbi Brown cream shadow stick in Bronze; UD Born to Run (yes I am a broken record)
