I am light/light+ neutral leaning yellow. I am usually not a bronze/copper person because I find both are always just too bright orange, so my picks are more neutral versions:

1. Copper: Gloaming (Natasha Denona Bronze Palette) – a wearable version of ‘copper’ for me – it leans red but has a duochrome affect that has a more orange/gold shift to it that makes it really interesting.
2. Bronze: Hot Stuff (Sydney Grace) – This has kind of a bronzey undertone but the shimmer/reflect is more of a neutral brown so I find it a lot more wearable!
3. Plum: Dragonbite (Natasha Denona) – this duochrome is an obsession of mine. It’s definitely a lighter ‘plum’ color but it has that perfect in-between tone of burgundy and purple

This is a tricky one because one woman’s (or man’s) copper is another one’s bronze but I will try….

Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool, very “pinky”
Favorite copper eyeshadow? Pat McGrath Gold Rush (does it count as “copper”?) I also really love ABH Marina from the “Mario” palette…is that copper?
Favorite bronze eyeshadow? Pat McGrath Bronze Struck, MAC Tempting and Mulch (is Mulch “bronze”?); also Marc Jacobs Brav-O (is that bronze? gold? I’m always confused by these subtleties)
Favorite plum eyeshadow? Tarte Sinful, UD Weirwood Leaves (that shadow started my love affair and got me past my fear of plum shadows) as well as Dior New Look #3)

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones.

Favorite copper eyeshadow? I love coppery eyeshadows and have collected a few (lots) in my stash. My favourites are: Auburn Blaze (PIxi Beauty), Gold Nectar (PMG), Lorac Amber and Cleo from City Colour.

Favorite bronze eyeshadow? Often these are interchangeable with coppery eyeshadows too – I do use Chestnut Glimer from Pixi Beauty, Huda’s Smokey Obsessions #6 and Phoenix Awakens (Temptalia x SG).

Favorite plum eyeshadow? Blue Blood from PMG Sublime Mini.

Skintone: listed, fading summer tan.

Fave Copper: Terra Moons (TM) – Mirage, on smaller lid space I get copper shift to sparkly olive green. It’s so smooth!

Fave Bronzes: TM – Hyperion, bronze shift to sparkly olive green. Sydney Grace (SG) – Defiance and Gold Earth, deep bronze when combined.

Fave Plums: Temptalia x SG – Sumptuous Serendipity and My Constellation combined make the prettiest burnished plum.

I wore TM – Hyperion today, it’s a fantastic one and done shade. Favoring gilded sunflower, fall shades, especially grungy metallics. Temptalia palettes, Natasha Denona Glam, TM and SG are what I dip into most often.

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15, fair and yellowish.

Favorite copper eyeshadow? / Favorite bronze eyeshadow? tbh I’m terrible with colours… So I’m going with Firecracker (bronze…ish?) from the Tartellete in Bloom pallete and the Bling Bling stick in Sky Moon Star from Etude House (I’m pretty sure this is copper).

Favorite plum eyeshadow? Sydney Grace Dream Big (my favourite from the brand actually) I wore it almost daily the week I got it and have worn it every single week since (as eyeliner too).
