Mac redbrick eye shadow I love adding it to the crease with purples,maroons and any warm browns. I have brown eyes so its gives me that honey tint to my eyes but it would probably flatter any eye color.

I have respect for a woman who isn’t afraid to stock up on a product she’s in love with. I bought 2 of Project Chimps from KVD when it came out so I can feel these vibes.

This is so hard to answer for a pink toned gal!

Your skin tone/coloring: very fair/pink undertones

Favorite orange-hued beauty product: I have to go with peach tones here – Chantecaille luminous gloss in Lychee and Smith and Cult gloss in Life in Photographs; both really pretty soft peach colors and very hydrating. I also have Urban Decay Fireball that I got as a sample, but haven’t used yet. Does that count? Lol!

Favorite rust-hued beauty product: The closest I think I have to rust is probably the Tom Ford Honeymoon quad with the reddish shade in the bottom left; though I don’t know if I’d really call it rust.

Favorite copper-hued beauty product: Don’t know the numbers off-hand, but I have a few copper to bronze shades from Inglot in my palette.

I’m working my way into more unusual colors outside of my comfort zone. It still has to work in a professional office, but I’m getting there slowly but surely! I need to sort out what to pair Fireball with, but I do plan to use it soon. I worked with Beautylish today to make a cool tone Inglot palette version of Modern Renaissance. Hopefully this will be a nice compromise for me, minus the oranges.

Your skin tone/coloring: Light/medium, yellow undertones

Favorite orange-hued beauty product:
Becca blush souffle in Papaya/Topaz. Second is MAC lippie in Dozen Carnations.

Favorite rust-hued beauty product:
MAC Brown Script. Is that rust? Kinda….

Favorite copper-hued beauty product:
Don’t think I have one. MUG Grandstand comes to mind, but I think that’s more of a rosy gold-y?

Wednesday Avatar

This range is very challenging for me.
Your skin tone/coloring: Light olive:
Favorite orange-hued beauty product: I don’t have a favourite, but can pull off ABH Burnt Orange in the crease from the Ren palette. I usually layer with Buon Fresco on top and just let a bit of the orange peek out; getting the effect without full on commitment to the colour.
Favorite rust-hued beauty product:
Favorite copper-hued beauty product:
Lumping these two products together because neither are favs and I think my pick is probably not truly representative of either: Tom Ford Spice cream shadow. That leans about as orange, rusty as I can get.

Skin tone: Medium Warm (Mac NC30)

Favorite orange hued product: Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadow in Doce.

Favorite rust hued beauty product: Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadow in Raw Power (looks beautiful paired with Doce and both are outstanding accompaniments to the Anastasia Modern Renaissance palette).

Favorite copper hued beauty product: MAC Coppering, MAC Amber Lights, and NARS Isolde duo.

Rachel R. Avatar

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

Favorite orange-hued beauty product: Kat von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in A Go-Go.

LMM Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair with neutral-to-warm undertones; light brown eyes.
Favorite orange-hued beauty product: Urban Decay lipstick in Tilt.
Favorite rust-hued beauty product: Probably more accurately “cranberry” than “rust,” but Colourpop eyeshadow in Drift.
Favorite copper-hued beauty product: Colourpop eyeshadow in La-La.

Light NC20 Med. Brown hair & eyes

Favorite orange: MAC Rule

Favorite Rust: rust color from Milani Earthy Elements palette

Favorite Copper: MAC Amber Lights or Coppering depending on what you consider truly copper

Claire Renee Avatar

My skin tone/coloring is pale warm (NC15) and I have medium brown hair, hazel eyes. I used MAC Bamboo eyeshadow in the past but it’s been discontinued, it was kind of orangey. I also use Clinique Golden Brandy lipstick which is bronzey. I don’t think I have any copper products. With my skin tone I tend to use lighter “orange” shade like peach or apricot. True orange would be garish on me.

Mariella Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair, cool
Favorite orange-hued beauty product: no such thing – I don’t look good in orange
Favorite rust-hued beauty product: Not sure if L’Oreal Amber Rush e/s is rust or copper but it’s pretty much the only product I have in this colour family that I like
Favorite copper-hued beauty product: I also like UD Sonic from Vice 3 – is that copper? rust? orange?

The long and short – this colour range is not great on me but I do have 2 or 3 that I like well enough to wear them.

Deborah S. Avatar

Skin Tone: Very fair with pink/peach undertones, dark brown eyes and greying/brown hair.
Favorite Orange hued beauty product-I don’t wear a lot of orange. I just don’t think it looks good on me but I have been using the Burnt Orange from the Mod Ren palette.
Favorite Red toned-KVD eye shadow in Raw. Beautiful, pigmented and blends like a dream.
Favorite Copper colored eye shadow- I can’t remember the name but it is a Colorpop eye shadow in the Kathleen Lights palette.

Genevieve Avatar

Skin tone: fair, light porcelain
Favourite orange hued product: a Dior lipstick that I purchased many years ago – Diorissimo lipstick 021, just divine.
Rust hued product: Another set of lipsticks as I love this shade on my lips: Milani Tuscan Toast and Cinnamon Spice
Copper hued product: Milani Bronze Beauty lipstick, Portland Black Bad Penny. Would Half Baked by UD count?
I generally don’t wear these shades as eye shadow, but love them as lipsticks.

Coolish, med fading to lt med. I love all of these.
Orange: bite Clementine, Heatwave,the oranges from Vice palettes.
Rusts: the Kat von D mattes: Cleo and Wrath. Lipstick Queen saint an sinner rusts.
Copper: Mufe copper red, the blush one, not the E/s one. Use it as both. Old bourjois copper metalish lip shades.
Those are but a few that come to mind, and do not include the muted or light versions, which I like even better. Next year, abh mr, ’cause it’s perm, and I can wait.

Your skin tone/coloring: warmish/yellowish medium tan (nc35-nc42 range)
Favorite orange-hued beauty product: OCC Authentic – technically copper but it looks orange on me!
Favorite rust-hued beauty product: Colourpop Love Bug is up there, despite the issues with the formula. If I do a lot of moisturizing and exfoliating beforehand I can make it work – which is great because I adore the color!
Favorite copper-hued beauty product: Colourpop Boy Band! I will never get over it being discontinued.

Anne Avatar

Your skin tone/coloring: NC15 with some redness (though I definitely color correct if I’m going to be using the below types of hues)

Favorite orange-hued beauty product: Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain in #10 Mandarin Muse

Favorite rust-hued beauty product: I’m not entirely sure what is considered rust-hued (like a brown-ish orange-y undertone?) so ColourPop’s shadow in Boy Band fits the bill I think. Or maybe MAC Antiqued?

Favorite copper-hued beauty product: MAC Amber Lights, hands down.
