Your skin tone/coloring: Fair skin with neutral undertones and freckles, warm brown hair, green/gray/blue eyes.

Favorite product this month? Bite Beauty Virgo lipstick and Flesh Beauty highlighting stick in Pinky.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Bare Minerals Complete Coverage Serum concealer… I use it even on my “no make up” make up days because its such natural looking coverage and is a little dewy.

Most used eye product this month? My Lorac Pro Palette 4. I got this for my birthday at the end of August and it’s become my go-to neutral palette; I love it so much!

I like it, too. So where’s Lorac holiday? I looked on their IG and saw a look with a superb green, presumably from holiday. In 17, bought scads of Lorac. This year, so few new offerings. Not sure the buy out by Markwins has done them much good.

Your skin tone/coloring: About an NC20 with olive/neutral-warm undertone shift on my face (makes finding a foundation a fun game lol). However my skin tone has been jumping up in shades very quickly ever since I started religiously doing skincare and applying sunscreen so I don’t know when I’m going to settle. I bought a foundation two months ago, and it’s too dark for me now so I’m having to sell it.

Favorite product this month?: I just picked up and tried out the Luxie precise detail eye brush set. I have monolids and where have these been all my life??? I’d always felt like I had no control over my eyeshadow, and the pigment would go everywhere, and now I know why!

Most used face/cheek product this month?: I’ve been enjoying the Clinique chubby stick blushes! I also revisited my NYX highlighter stick and am in love with it all over again. Effortless dew FTW

Most used eye product this month?: Tartelette Toasted! I think I might sell Naked Heat because Toasted is so much more wearable! The brilliant orange in Tartelette Toasted is my favorite shade ever right now and is making me want Gingerbread Spice!

Mac taupe lipstick is my favorite product this month.
I mix mac taupe and cover fx drops in moonlight on my fingers and use it as a blush and lip stain. My favorite eye product is a eyeliner from prestige in powerful purple. It’s almost black barely purple this look is my quick gotta get out of the house and take my son to school look.

Your skin tone/coloring: Medium w/ olive undertones, MAC NC37, Lancome Teint Idole 24H Foundation N360, deep brunette, blue-green eyes w/ gold flecks.

Favorite product this month? Probably my brand new tube of PMG Executive Realness Mattetrance lipstick and the WnW GOT themed collection products I bought. Both Dragon Scales and the Queen’s something or other quad work FANTASTICALLY in eye looks I’ve used them in!

Most used face/cheek product this month? Lancome Teint Idole 24H Foundation N360, FAB Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer spf 40, Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, Hourglass Ambiant Light in Dim Light, RCMA No Color Powder, UD All Nighter setting spray.

Most used eye product this month? My eyeshadow looks vary daily, so that’s a bit more difficult to nail down! But; because I do love how brightening Nars Thessalonique duo is with eye color, I have already used it 3 times in the two short weeks since receiving it! I love with ND Nude Mauve as my transition and Dominique Chai Tea (or MAC Handwritten) in the crease! Beyond that, my usual Maybelline Full & Soft WP mascara, Smashbox Fishnet Always On Gel Liner, Essence Midnight In Paris and Nyx Proof It Waterproofing Eyeshadow Primer.

Favorite product this month? Smashbox XO Vlada Liquid Lip
Most used face/cheek product this month? I just bought the new Clinique Cheek Pop palette, so technically it’s not “most used”. But it’s fantastic! it has three full-size blushes. Nude Pop is my already my HG every day blush, and I’m in love with the Pink Honey shade.
Most used eye product this month? I’ve been laying off of the eye make-up because of allergy eyes.

Most used eye product this month? Zoeva Glance eyeliner.

CeeBee Avatar

Ooooh, yes, do let me know how the 24Hr one goes for you, because I haven’t tried it yet! Would definitely like to know what you think of that one…

I LOVED the DB Luminous Hydrating first but the Velvet Matte has stolen my heart. Sometimes I mix them together too 😉 Or I blend a dab or two of the WnW Hello Halo liquid highlighter with the matte foundation, then set with a loose powder and the Colourpop finishing spray and it looks AMAZING.

Medium Warm (MAC NC37, GA Luminous Silk 6.5)

Favorite product this month: For color cosmetics, it’s Bite Beauty Virgo. For foundation (I bought three and really love them all) it’s La Mer The Soft Fluid Foundation (which I mix with Luminous Silk and this combo is the best thing ever!). For skincare (and I bought A LOT of skincare!) it’s a tie between Paula’s Choice Azelaic Acid and Murad Hydrodynamic Ultimate Moisture.

Most used face/cheek products: La Mer Soft Fluid Foundation mixed with GA Luminous Silk, Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless powder, Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer in Terra, and NARS Wanted II Cheek Palette.

Most used eye product: Pat McGrath Decadence Palette

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair/pink undertone
Favorite product this month? I am using a sample of Amore Pacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ Pink Undertones #104 Foundation and I am in love, except I don’t really like cushion compacts. When I was having my makeup done at Sephora this weekend the makeup artist mentioned that they might have a liquid product, I will be researching this. Every time I use this I can smell the lovely aroma of the foundation for quite a while afterwards, it is very addictive as all their products are.
Most used face/cheek product this month? same as above
Most used eye product this month? Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Volume 2, just picked this up at the Rouge Event. This is my new HG mascara. I am very picky and this ticks all my boxes, vavoom! Love it!

Tammy Avatar

I love the Amour Pacific smell too, yes, it’s very addictive. I stopped buying Amore Pacific because, if I remember correctly, they put fragrance in their products. But if that was just a natural fragrance as a side product of skin-loving ingredients, I’d continue with the brand.

Your skin tone/coloring: light, muted undertones

Favorite product this month? Stila Micro tip liner! It makes it so much easier doing the itty bitty flicks and barely there lines I perfer! MAC’s brow pens are great too, my eyebrows have become a breeze to get perfect every morning.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Glossier Puff or MILK Rally blush. Most used highlighter has been Stila Heaven’s Hue in Luminescence which is a really pretty pale, cool pink toned rose gold. I’t’s like a frost finish on the skin, but also really subtle and diffused looking.

Seraphine Avatar

MAC Sumptuous Olive is gorgeous. I have it, but don’t use it as much as I should. I just bought two backups of Tarte Lights Camera Lashes mascara. I only buy it when I can get it cheaply, as I don’t like spending too much on mascara, so I was really happy to see it on sale at Ulta.

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

Favorite product this month? Ace Beaute’ Paradise Fallen, Blush Tribe’s Hasina 2, and ABH Norvina Palettes. My love affair with Physician’s Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose continues. Honorable Mention to the Wet n Wild Dragon Scales quad.

Your skin tone/coloring: light skin with neutral to pink undertone

Favorite product this month? Becca Berlin Girl Glow highlighter. I’ve gotten this very recently but I haven’t bought too many makeup items this month so this one is my favorite. The color is different from my other highlighters and the subtle blue shift is gorgeous. It’s not as blinding as other Becca highlighters but it can be built up to have an intense glow.

Most used face/cheek product this month? Natasha Denona Super Glow in Fair. A blinding highlighter that has no glitter and doesn’t emphasize any texture.

Most used eye product this month? Anastasia Soft Glam & Pat McGrath Subliminal palettes, for my warm tone and cool tone needs.

Your skin tone/coloring: Fair-light neutral

Favorite product this month: Eyelash extensions.
Because I’m travelling a lot in Sept/Oct I decided to get eyelash extensions and they are awesome. I wake up looking more alert and feel like I can go out of the house with only lipgloss right now. I’m getting them filled today and although I have no intention of having them on beyond the next month or so, they are a great alternative to mascara. Especially on international trips where I can wash my face and still look like I’m alive.

Most used face/cheek product this month: I ordered the aquasurance powder foundation from JCat Beauty.
I love it.
Again, with travelling a lot, liquids are at an absolute minimum in my carry on. This stuff is great–flawless actually and lasts! I have skin on the drier side, especially my forehead so I have to make sure I’m hydrated and pay special attention to dry spots. Then I lay down Tacha Silk Canvas, do my undereyes with Shape Tape or Born This Way concealer. I use a puff rather than the provided sponges in the Aquasurance case, and it lays down like velvet. I set my undereyes with powder, do my powder contour then spritz with Mac Prep+Prime. Once it dried I finish my eyes and cheeks.

Most used eye product this month: Living out of a suitcase, I’ve kept pretty much in the nude camp this month. Likely Too Faced Natural Eyes and Tarte Clay Play Palettes

Your skin tone/coloring: fair/ neutral-warm

Favorite product this month? MAC Redlight Strobe cream. My skin has felt extra dry this month. This has given it some radiance.

Most used face/cheek product this month? NYX Blush in Taupe. I’ve used this as a contour in the past and I picked up a new one this month.

Most used eye product this month? Wet N Wild Mega Length mascara. Love this for bottom lashes and on light, natural makeup days. It gets all those little tiny lashes and makes your lashes look like feathers. Plus it’s cheap
