Bold lips always seem to do it for me! I really love a neutral eye with a hint of gold/warmth paired with a brilliant red (my go-to would obviously be Chanel Dragon).

Sometimes I feel the prettiest when i’m wearing minimal makeup – tinted moisturizer, blush, lipstick or lip gloss, and some mascara. It’s enough to be subtle and not scream “I’m wearing makeup”, but it gives me more color and makes my skin look better. Plus I love lipsticks, lip glosses, etc, and I always feel better when I have something on my lips *g*

Bright eyes (white, cream colors and shimmer) with bold but natural lashes, rosy cheeks and rosy lips. Very much a natural dewy look that reminds me of winter.

While no particular makeup look makes me *feel* any prettier than another, I have to say there are looks that are better suited to my features than others. One of those is a 1930s inspired look: I simply use matte neutral eyeshadow, like NARS Madrague, a thin line of liquid or cake liner on top lashes only, and loads of mascara. Lips are a matte red, and on the face is foundation, with a light application of contour & highlight.

The look that makes me feel prettiest would be flushed cheeks and a pinky nude matte lip, with defined eyebrows & understated eyes (maaaaybe winged black liquid eyeliner). Sexy however would be a dramatic dark eye, smokey or otherwise!

A Strong Neutral eye.

I tend to think of my blue eyes as being my best feature and minimal colour lets them stand out.

I have scars from a dog bite as a kid round my mouth. Even though they are faded and with foundation you can hardly see them I still feel self conscious about putting too much emphasis on my month.

Purple smokey eyes ( something with armani ETK #3 or 4 or Chanel illusion d’ombre illusoire ) and very natural lips ( e.g. chanel boy) does the trick for me, of course combined with a flawless skin.

“Pretty”, as opposed to “knock-out”, “expensive”, or “classy”, is not that difficult to achieve. I think Dick Page has it down to science – perfect, youthful skin, with some shine to it; natural blush, minimal eye-makeup, some rosy colour in the lips.

I like defined top eye liner in a copper. It makes my eyes look very blue and the liner on the top only makes my small-ish eyes look bigger. (plus I think it looks vaguely 50s retro) The first time I tried it, I kept catching glimpses of myself in the mirror and thinking how pretty it looked.

I agree with you Wendy. Well defined eye with shadows, liner and mascara. a more neutral lip. I also agree Christina’s lips, teeth, and smile are beautiful!

Black winged/ cat eyeliner. I wear it everyday! I probably shouldnt.. but we all play by our own rules right! ๐Ÿ™‚ I love anything with a vintage vibe and cat eyes are very Marilyn Monroe pin-up-esque to me.

Mascara makes me feel pretty. I put on so much mascara that it is scary! But I have a lot of lashes and I can build them up and it always looks good. Of course mascara is not the only thing that will work in making me feel pretty but it is the one thing I will do every day and then I walk around feeling like I got rockstar lashes.

Eyeliner on top lid only, mascara, and a highlighter on my cheekbones makes me feel my prettiest. Now if only I was better applying eyeliner. It takes 15 minutes and a qtip with makeup remover at the ready so I rarely bother with liner. ๐Ÿ˜›

A warm gray eyeshadow like Stila Dapple; black or dark purple eyeliner; and a pretty pink pout (Buxom Marissa) make me feel prettiest!

Unfortunately, both Dapple and Marissa are no longer being made… figures that they would be some of my all-time favorites.

Kinda off topic, but any long time reader knows you’re fav, chanel dragon, has been discontinued. I was wondering if you’d tried to dupe it with lip tars. You probably already thought of this, but I wanted to say it anyway in case you hadn’t. Hope this helps ๐Ÿ™‚

Dragon has shimmer and a glossy finish, so I don’t think you could dupe it with Lip Tars. You’d be better off taking a blue-based red lipstick and adding a shimmery red gloss on top!

Medium-thick black gel/liquid liner on top lashes, slightly winged (I have large-ish almond shaped eyes), three coats of a really good mascara, peachy flush cheeks and natural/nude lips. That makes me feel my prettiest, not sexy-ist, but prettiest.

golden brown hair/hazel eyes/nw20

natural eyeshadow with soft dark shadow in the crease to make the eyes bigger, winged eyeliner, a lot of mascara and natural lips with just a hint of colour.

I love the neutral look because it’s something I do everyday and doesn’t take away from my natural features. Neutral to me is just a little tinted moisturizer, cream blush for a nice soft flush, a sheen highighter, concealer just under my eyes, brows filled in, mascara and curling my lashes, then a soft neutral pink lipstick.

However, if I do something dramatic for special events, false lashes always makes me feel prettiest.
