I use aphrodite's embrace organic makeup. I like to go for the more natural look, even if I go out I will do a smokey eye using neutral colors. I never do blues, purples, greens, etc. Too much for me, I stick to mostly brown eyeshadow and a small amount of black liner and a nice pink blush.

I wear a little lipstick over gloss, that's all-it's bright/deep red, but applied thinly.
No other makeup, period. No particular brand, just whatever looks "right" to my eye.

I went crazy and purchased a fuchsia lip tint/pencil at my friend's suggestion. I usually stick with a neutral gloss or nothing.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

I wear occasionally, I wear "both" styles, natural and dramatic; and I prefer Too Faced, and Hard Candy for my makeup.

I only wear eyeliner, eyeshadow, and mascara; and occasionally lip liner and gloss.

I love makeup. I love smokey eye look ( blue or purple or green or brown eye shadow ) with light pink or nude lipstick but sometimes I also like a little natural and fresh look like powder in beige colour, pink blush, pink lipstick and brown polished eye brows. Or sometimes, I just put powder on my face and a very dark lipstick ( red wine ) and nothing any more.

I use Smashbox photo finish face primer, Maybelline BB cream, L'oreal liquid foundation or Maybelline Pure Mineral Foundation, MAC paint pot for eye primer, 120 palette or Sleek Eye shadows ( british brand ) , L'oreal True Match pressed Powder, Elf contouring makeup blush, Nars blush, MAC eye brow set in Beguile, MAC lipstick , Sleek Pout Polish.

I like natural looks so I don't wear make up.

I get the feeling you're a cool color person -- that fuchsia should look nice. I bought one and I use it lightly.... because I have a small mouth with thin lips and dark/bright colors make my mouth smaller...

I have warm undertones. But I think one of my beefs with lipstick is that not many have enough pigment. My lower lip is pinkish and my upper lip is darker. So it is weird as colors will look wildly different on the two.

I ended up getting the Bite lip pencil in Amarone. It is between berry and fuchsia. Amazing, it was so pigmented there was no difference between the my two lips. The had a great range of vibrant colors.

It is really bold for me and screams makeup but it is pretty.

I vary a lot. My day look at the office tends to be Tarte BB cream (covers years of acne scars but doesn't look makeupy), a khaki-gold or brown eyeliner, neutral eyeshadow, black mascara, a little white pencil in the corners of my eyes, and either whatever blush I have handy if I have a neutral lip or use my fingers to blot off some of my lipstick (generally in the pink family) onto my cheeks, forehead, and chin. Going out, I do a smokey eye with more black eyeliner and dark browns and greys.
