Your skin tone/coloring: fair neutral redhead
(I’m cheating and saying more than 1 favorite because these are my favorite colors, sorry! Haha)
Favorite copper-hued beauty product? Nyx golden bronze eyeliner (straight up copper despite the name), and I’m really enjoying the Becca blushed copper so far.
Favorite red-hued beauty product? Becca ombre rouges for eyes, Armani lip maestro in shade 400 for lips. Though Urban Decay 69 gets an honorable mention ^_^
Favorite orange-hued beauty product? For lips, Mac forbidden sunrise, Revlon rendevous, and Mary Kay sunny citrus. NARS Persia is on my list, as well as the copper Isolde duo but I don’t technically own them yet 🙁

Light-skin, golden undertones.

Favorite copper-hued beauty product?
Ardency Inn MODSTER MANUKA HONEY ENRICHED PIGMENTS in Copper, no question! Second best goes to NARS Dual Intensity in the shade Telesto.

Favorite red-hued beauty product?
I don’t have a lot of reds (yet), but Kat Von D’s Metal Crush shadows in the shade Raw Power looked promising (as well as the gorgeous red shade in her Monarch palette).

Favorite orange-hued beauty product?
Cindi from the Viseart Sultry Muse palette! I also love the NARS single shadow in the shade Persia.

I can’t wait to see other’s answers!

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

Favorite copper-hued beauty product? ColourPop Game Face, LORAC’s Unleashed (Unzipped Gold) and Amber (Pro Metal); Nyx Wicked Lippie in Wrath.

Favorite red-hued beauty product? Lipstick! Any shade, any brand, I love them all. Max Factor Creme Rouge in 537 and MAC La Vie En Rouge get me the most compliments. Being fair, the only red blush I wear is Pinktini from Sleek’s Blush x 3 in Pink Sprint. It sheers out beautifully and gives me a “Snow White” look. My favorite red eyeshadows are any from Notoriously Morbid.

Studio Moisturizing Lipstick in Orange Dream; MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus II lipstick and lipglass; ColourPop Girl Power; MUFE Artist Shadow in Tangerine; ABH eyeshadow in Morocco; UD Slowburn from the Electric Palette.

Favorite copper-hued beauty product? Does nail polish count? I’ve been rocking Essie’s Penny Talk recently. Otherwise, LA Splash’s Guadalupe is a lovely shade of bronze/copper on me.

Favorite red-hued beauty product? Mac Ruby Roo is a color I always come back to! Nothing brightens my face quite like it.

Favorite orange-hued beauty product? Nars blush in Taj Mahal, though I just discovered Mac’s Lady Danger.

Skintone/Coloring: Fairly light, very neutral; dark-featured.

Copper: This isn’t a color I gravitate towards, but I am *trying* to incorporate it into looks, as I have sooo many from palettes! UD Half Baked, MAC Amber Lights, & NARS Galapagos are a few that come to mind, mainly due to their texture/performance. MAC Expensive Pink is probably the easiest for me to wear, although not truly copper.

Red: I absolutely *love* reds for the eyes! Of what I actually own, Manic Panic Vampire eyeshadow & Stargazer liquid liner are favorites. I do intend to pick up an Inglot gel liner in red, and I want to look into Sugarpill’s Love+… As for lips, NYX Snow White & Milani Matte Confident top my list.

Orange: Another range I shy away from… However, like copper, I have quite a few from palettes, so I’ve been playing around with combinations. UD Bitter is surprisingly more wearable than I thought it’d be, as are KvD Mandala & Cleopatra. I’ve been finding deeper, brownish oranges to play nicely with aubergines, plums, & navies.

Fav copper would be pumpkin spice by Sugarpill. Fav red would be redrum by Jeffree Star in liquid and ruby woo in solid. Fav orange is Nars Taj Mahal of course.

Favorite copper-hued beauty product? Shiro Cosmetics Nic Cage Raking Leaves on a Brisk October Afternoon (maybe it’s more bronze-ish, but close enough for me)

Favorite orange-hued beauty product? Sugarpill Flamepoint for the same reason as Love+ and also Nyx Free Spirit High Voltage lipstick or Wet n Wild 24 Carrot Gold Mega Last lipstick. I love orange lips!

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/cool
Favorite copper-hued beauty product? MUFE ME728 Copper Red
Favorite red-hued beauty product? MAC Frank-N-Furter. It is unfortunate that it was a LE. The amount of blue is perfect for my skin tone.
Favorite orange-hued beauty product? I am not a fan of full-on oranges, but a shade like MAC Morange might be acceptable occasionally.

Fran Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: between fair and light; cool undertones and warm features
Favorite copper-hued beauty product? I’m not a huge fan of copper colors on myself, but I do use the copper eyeshadows included in MUFE and Viseart palettes that I own from time to time.
Favorite red-hued beauty product? most blue-red and plummy red lip colors appeal to me. New favorites include NARS Audacious lipstick in Vivien, Kevyn Aucoin lipstick in Bloodroses, NARS lipstick in Scarlet Empress, Besame lipstick in Noir Red. A warm red that looks good on my is NARS Satin lip pencil in Golshan.
Favorite orange-hued beauty product? oranges with a lot of red or pink in them can look good on me — NARS Audacious lipstick in Greta, Ardency Inn lipstick in Cult, MAC Mineralize Rich lipstick in Elegant Accent. Orange blush tends to look really strange on me, although I can wear Hourglass Incandescent Electra.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool-toned (which might explain my answers)
