Your skin tone/coloring: pale… and pink, lol.

Favorite pink lipstick? About a billion-way tie but LE’s Velvet Beauty, Dance Card and Skyscraper Rose.

Favorite pink blush? Etude House’s Strawberry Choux, Clinique’s Ballerina Pop, and now MAC’s Totally Synched Glow Play blush.

Favorite pink eyeshadow? Too Faced’s Peach Smoothie from their White Peach palette. I’m faced with the imminent prospect of replacing it as I’ve hit pan, lol. I wish Sydney Grace had a dupe but their pinks pull warmer on me (still love them, though.)

Under my name; cherry cola hair; hazel/green eyes.

ABH Liquid Lipstick in Party Pink (DC), Sephora Rouge Creme in Cougar (DC), MAC Silly (LE). If I’m going more subdued, MAC Cream Cup.

FAVORITE PINK BLUSH?Powder — My Pretty Zombie Drugs Like Me Blush in Cocaine. (Note: MPZ’s owner is a pharmacist, and does not condone unprescribed drug use.) Cream — Fenty Cheeks Out Freestyle Cream Blush in Bikini Martini.

Cotton Candy from the Viseart Chou Chou Palette. This may be slightly more fuchsia than bright pink, but it makes my eyes look intensely green, I own other similar eyeshadows (hot pink or fuchsia with a lavender flash), but they don’t do this as well as Cotton Candy does.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Favorite pink lipstick? Depends on depth desired! For mid-tone: MAC Saucy Little Darling. For something lighter: UD Outspoken, KVD Mother, MAC Mehr. For deeper: UD Catfight or MAC Diva-ish.

Favorite pink blush? Natasha Denona Love Cheek Duo blush shade, or MAC Sugar Or Syrup.

Favorite pink eyeshadow? Oh boy! They are scattered among too many different palettes. But, probably CP’s Come And Get It is a top contender. The one I always wanted has been MAC’s Expensive Pink due to it having enough warmth to it for it to be perfect for me.

Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favorite pink lipstick? I don’t wear pink lipsticks at all.

Favorite pink blush? I wear a coral pink blush – either Clinique’s Melon Pop or The Balm’s Hot Mama

Favorite pink eyeshadow? Again, I don’t typically wear pink eyeshadow, but I do like Rose Gold shades – Naked 3’s Buzz and Liar and from Smashbox’s Petal Metal – I do like Rose Quartz and Rose Rocked – especially used in conjunction with either other neutral shades or more colourful shades.

Your skin tone/coloring: fair leaning warm

Favorite pink lipstick? Estee Lauder Pink Parfait, the perfect pearlized MLBB neutral pink in the most comfortable, easy to apply formula that lasts for 4 hours and fades gracefully to a delicate stain.

Favorite pink blush? Milani’s Dolce Vita, the most glorious fuchsia pink with delicate gold shimmer in their amazing baked formula

Favorite pink eyeshadow? MAC’s Expensive Pink, a classic for good reason

Pink’s my second-favorite color of all time (behind purple) and one of the most versatile makeup colors, so I’ll have to put multiple options for everything here!
Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool skin (foundation matches: Fenty Pro Filt’r 110, Urban Decay All Nighter 2.5, NARS Natural Radiant Longwear 2.0 Mont Blanc, Kevyn Aucoin The Etherealist Light EF 02, L’Oreal True Match C3 Creamy Natural), gray eyes, brown hair with red highlights and scattered blonde/blue strands. My everyday base products are Fenty-Amber Match Stick as cheek contour and Pro Filt’r concealer and Soft Matte foundation in 110.
Favorite pink lipstick? My current top 5: Revlon Stormy Pink, KVD Backstage Bambi, and 3 Charlotte Tilburys-Liv It Up, Electric Poppy, and Velvet Underground.
Favorite pink blush? My current top 3: NARS Thrill and Tarte Dollface and/or Blushing Bride.
Favorite pink eyeshadow? My current top 5: UD Savage (from the discontinued and occasionally revived Electric palette-obligatory mention that Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, and Urban are technically not considered eye-safe due to a red pigment that the FDA hasn’t yet tested, so definitely not for waterline use and general eye use should be avoided by those with particularly sensitive eyes or a tendency to eyelid staining), UD Warning (Naked Ultraviolet), Melt Flamingo Dream (Millennial Pinx), Melt x Beetlejuice Sawed Girl (The Waiting Room-uses the same untested-in-US red pigment as Savage, so the same warnings apply), Too Faced Zsa Zsa (Then & Now).

Favorite pink lipstick? I’ve learned recently that I’m just not a pink lipstick person. Pink clashes with my olive skin tone and looks artificial on me. However, my favorite “pink” lipstick is MAC “Mull It Over” which has some pink undertone but isn’t a true pink

Favorite pink blush? Either Milani “Luminoso” or Pixi “Peach Parfait”

Favorite pink eyeshadow? The shade from the Etude House Cherry Blossom Play Color Eyes called “The End of Spring”
