Your skin tone/coloring: Oily light
Favorite plum blush?: I don’t wear a lot of plum blushes, you know, I’m not even sure I have any plum blushes. Urban Decay Afterglow in Rapture looks stunning, though. Maybe I’ll try it one day.
Favorite copper eyeshadow?: Unleashed from the Lorac Unzipped Gold palette
Favorite red lipstick?: Right now I’m loving Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Cruella

Your skin tone/coloring: fair-light and coolish neutral
Favorite plum blush? Still looking for one! I NEED a good one for fall.
Favorite copper eyeshadow? Chopper by Urban Decay
Favorite red lipstick? Bite Beauty VIP Red right now. I just bought lip lab #001 and Tannin, so I think the deeper red will be my fav. I have Red Ego by Estee Lauder, but it bleeds on me for some reason. Even with liner.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair & cool
Favorite plum blush? Hourglass Mood Exposure I think is my best/favorite plum blush.
Favorite copper eyeshadow? I am not as crazy about copper as most, but I find when I look at/use Natasha Denona Oxide (from the purple-blue palette) I was to do a copper eye, so I would say that is my favorite!
Favorite red lipstick? Bite Sour Cherry & Dose of Colors LosAnjealous

Your skin tone/coloring:
Light neutral (E.L. Double Wear in Desert Beige), salt & pepper hair (more pepper than salt), green eyes

Favorite plum blush?
I don’t have any plum blushes!

Favorite copper eyeshadow?
I rarely use copper shadows because I prefer mattes, but I do like Trick from my UD Naked3 palette.

Favorite red lipstick?
Very tough question! My three favorites from my collection are ABH Matte Lipstick in Ruby, MAC Russian Red, and Colourpop London Fog. They’re three different formulas, so my favorite of the three depends on which formula I’m in the mood to wear. And thanks to Sephora points, I received mini versions of Armani Lip Maestro in 400 The Red and Rouge Dior Matte in 999, but I haven’t really tried them out yet, so those could move up on a future list of favorite reds.

Mariella Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair, cool
Favorite plum blush? I have a hard time distinguishing between plum, burgundy and deep pink/rose so I’ll just play it safe and say “MAC Plum Foolery”
Favorite copper eyeshadow? L’Oreal Amber Lights, MAC Sable and UD Half Baked (though I think of it more as a gold but it’s listed in with the copper shadows in the community faves)
Favorite red lipstick? Just one???? Depends which day you ask me but at the moment, LE and no longer available is MAC Red Necessity and still available is UD Gash.

Courtney Avatar

Favorite plum blush? I don’t believe I even own any plum blushes… maybe I should look into them..
Favorite copper eyeshadow? I love the L’Oreal Infallibles shadow in Amber Rush! Not sure if it is considered copper since it is a little darker, but I love that color so much.
Favorite red lipstick? Probably Mrs. Mia Wallace by Urban Decay!

Skintone: MAC NC23 with prominent warm yellow/golden undertones! Warm brown eyes and hair.

Favorite plum blush: NARS Sin, or Clinique black honey pop!

Favorite red lipstick: for a long wearing red lip, I like Colourpop London Fog USL. for shorter outings, Kat Von D hellbent!

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

Plum Blush: Lancome Blush Subtil in Aplum; very subtle, not very pigmented, but it’s what I prefer in a blush.

Copper Eyeshadow: MAC Coppering; it leans more red on me than other coppers, especially if I pair it with a red.

Red Lipstick: NYX Pin-Up Pout in Revolution, NYX Round Lipstick in Snow White, and L’Oreal Infallible Liquid Lipstick in Matador.

Deborah S. Avatar

Skin tone: Very pale with cool undertones.

Favorite plum blush: Nars Sin, hands down.

Favorite copper e/s: Coloured Raine Your Majesty from the Queen of Hearts palette.

Favorite red lipstick: This is a tough one as I have so many and in the past have always answered, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red. I love the tone of the EA lipstick and I have the lip liner and gloss all of the same color so allows me a lot of versatility in using it. I absolutely love Nars Cruella, MAC Ruby Woo and MAC VG1 also.

Nicole D Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/light, neutral leaning cool w/ some redness.
Favorite plum blush? Plum blushes do not look so god on me so I do not have a favorite one. The only two plum blushes I own and I’ve been using, are part of a blush palette (Noho from UD x Basquiat Blush Palette and Candid from Nars Unfiltered II Cheek Palette).
Favorite copper eyeshadow? The rich copper shade from Tarina Tarantino Dreamy Jewel ES palette. Amazing pigmentation and softness.
Favorite red lipstick? Right now it’s MAC Red en Snow.

♥ Your skin tone/coloring:
• Dark
• Warm/Golden undertone (touch of neutral)
• MAC NC44.5/45 or C7, MUFE 173, TO’s 3.0Y/3.1Y, IMAN Clay Medium/2

♥ Favorite plum blush?
• Black Radiance Sheer Blush in PLUM SORBET
❝ This is an older version of this blush — Plum Sorbet: 1st Gen, if you will. It’s matte and not sheer AT ALL. It’s rather pigmented. When push comes to shove, I sometimes wear it as an eyeshadow. The newer Plum Sorbet is now part of BR’s ‘Artisan Color Baked Blush’ line and has a luminous finish. ❞

♥ Favorite copper eyeshadow?
• IMAN Cosmetics Luxury Eyeshadow in TWIGS
❝ This is another old, but longtime favorite copper shade of mine. Too bad the shade is discontinued. Despite this copper shadow, I would love to get my hands on MAC’s eyeshadow in COPPERING. It’s just so gorge! ❞

♥ Favorite red lipstick?
• MAC matte lipstick in DIVA
• Chanel Rouge Allure in (14) PASSION
❝ I don’t know why these two shades always make me feel like a Boss whenever I wear them. LOL ❞

Plum blush: Hourglass Mood Exposure

Copper Eyeshadow : MAC Amber Lights

Red Lipstick : Does Lipstick Queen Jean Queen or MAC Viva Glam VI count? Otherwise I don’t do red!

Genevieve Avatar

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

Favourite plum blush? I don’t use a plum blush, just peachy coral shades.

Favourite copper eyeshadow? Normally I don’t use a copper eyeshadow, as my hair is a coppery shade. But I have used the Amber shade in the Lorac Rose Gold Pro Metals palette and I was really pleased with the effect, so that would be my favourite.

Favorite red lipstick? I have to be careful with red lipsticks because so many turn pinkish on me. My favourite at the moment is Clarins Joli Rouge Red Terra shade – it doesn’t turn pink and looks lovely.

Celesta Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, neutral undertones, normal to oily skin, freckles, green eyes, warm brown hair wavy hair.

Favorite plum blush? I don’t think I own one! But I love plum colors; I think it would look nice on me with a light hand.

Favorite copper eyeshadow? Colourpop x Kathleenlights Super Shock Shadow. It has such a beautiful formula and it’s so glossy on the lids!

Favorite red lipstick? Its a Sephora creme lip stain in a vibrant blue toned red… they’ve reformulated and renamed their lip cremes since then, but it was the first liquid lipstick I ever tried and I was very pleasantly surprised by the color and how it felt on my lips and lasted. I still have it and love it!

Alexis V. Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Light-light/medium, warm undertones

Favorite plum blush? Hourglass Mood Exposure is the best plum blush ever.

Favorite copper eyeshadow? UD Barlust (from my Smoked palette)

Favorite red lipstick? This is way too hard, as I wear lots of reds. At the moment I’d say the Sephora creme lip stain liquid lipstick in 01 Always Red. However, I typically go toward more bright pinky-red lipsticks like the Sephora creme lip in #3 or UD Wonderland.

Your skin tone/coloring:
Fair neutral (Estee Lauder DW in N1N)

Favorite plum blush:
Nars “Sin”

Favorite copper eyeshadow:
It’s not current (at all), but my all-time fav copper eyeshadow is my mom’s little vintage 80’s Avon Dazzle Dust loose powder in “Copper Shine.” So pigmented and finely milled. (Also came in “Opaline Ice,” a pretty etherial pink/blue duo-chrome)

Favorite red lipstick:
KVD Everlasting LL in “Outlaw”

Joyce Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: light to medium with yellow undertones, dark brown eyes, black hair
Favorite plum blush? Tarte Exposed

Actually all these together in a single look would be quite pretty!

My skin tone is fair and warm. NC15. Fave plum blush is a Revlon one I’ve had for several years. Tender Plum. Love it-I have several Revlon powder blushes and they are great. Not much luck with copper eyeshadows-if I could find one that was more golden and less red it might work. Fave red lippie is MAC Russian Red.
