All shades of purple! Be it plum, violet, blurple, fuchsia, plummy-taupe, lilac (Nars Calisto), purple tinged browns, etc. I get kidded at my local MAC store about my thing for purple or purple-tinged products!
Catch is, that I’m not cool toned. But I love what it does for my eyes!

What cool-toned shadows do for your eyes is what warm-toned shades do for mine. My eyes are blue-grey and shadows that are orange and red-based REALLY bring out the blue! Sometimes, my eyes even look teal or aqua depending on what I’m wearing… and my mood.

Those too! Especially copper, orange-red, rose-golds, orange and rusty brown shades light up my eyes and face. Like I mentioned to Momo below, it was a pretty much a tie!
And I will wear the two color families together sometimes, too.

And a huge “Yes” to those shades for me as well, Momo! Copper, rose-gold, oranges, including orange-red, and rusty brown shades are nearly neck-in-neck with my range of purpley shades. Both work so beautifully with golden tan and olive shades of skintones!

Either peachy corals, or slightly beige pinks – lips, cheeks, eyeshadows – it’s not even intentional πŸ™‚

I don’t think you can be a makeup lover without being inspired by all colour, but I think my heart beats faster for cosmetics in strong deep shades in the purple/plum/burgundy spectrum.

Pink ? makes the boys wink! Lol. Seriously though, I can wear pale pink on my eyes, and any shade pink on my cheeks and lips, as I have cool leaning towards neutral colouring. It also makes me feel happy and feminine.

This question really doesn’t work for me, because my favorite lip colors look horrible as eye shadows on me. For lips, purples that lean pink look best; for cheeks, cool pinks; for eyes, blue violets (NOT red-violets or purples) and greens that lean a bit, but not too much, yellow (like light olive green). I like blue-violets on my lips as well as my eyelids, but find them challenging to wear on lips in daily life. I love color and try to find ways to wear them all.

Ah, I can’t decide! I’d have to say peach, but I also swoon over burgundy in the fall and winter. Brown is a no-brainer, you can wear it easily on all features. I also adore copper, but I only wear it on my eyes so that doesn’t count. I think peach and burgundy are my choices.

I agree with some other posts, mauve is definitely one of them. I’ve been getting into browns lately too, a neutral eye with dramatic eyeliner/lashes and a deep brown matte lip has been my go to!

My first reaction was to say coral, but I don’t really wear corals on my eyes, so I’ll say purple! That’s a shade I love to wear on my lips, cheeks, eyes and nails!

The only color I can think of that I would actually wear in every product is taupe… I love purples, pastel to blackened, matte to shimmer, warm to cool, but I loathe most purples on the lips & *never* on the cheeks. The same with red, although I’m more willing to wear it on the lips, but am *extremely* picky with what shade/tone I wear…

I guess I’d have to say purple — violet, plum, burgundy. I actually prefer warmer shades for my eyes as they bring out more of the blue in my blue-gray eyes, but I do wear a fair amount of cool-toned shadows.

Tough one. I can think of colors I definitely like on eyes and cheeks, or lips and cheeks, but not lips, eyes, and cheeks. I think the closest I can get is plum. Or, maybe a grunge-like 90’s brown.

The true girlie girl over here loves some pink. Pink lipstick, blush, lipgloss, shadow. Like every shade of pink you can think of, from hot Barbie pink to sedate rose gold, I love it and wear it proudly.

Wine/burgundy. It suits my fair skin the best. Works for my lipstick, blush, and nail polish. Pinks are just too subdued, and I need something that makes a statement. Reds with a blue undertone are good, too, but I think of the wine color as a sort of everyday color.
