  • POLL: Which colours suit you best/worse

    Just though i would do a poll on colours. I have this tendency to look horrible in brown eyeshadows & lipsticks. They just cant work on me. SO i thought I would do a poll.

    Please list your skintone or you foundation shade. The colour that works best and worse on you.

    Skintone : fair (stila 30 watts /LSF 6.5)
    Best : Pinks
    Worse : browns

    Please feel free to give your opinions on whether you should avoid the colours that look bad on you or that you believe that all colours will suit anyone....

    Might want to check out this website on colours

    I'm a pink person. Light pink and peach colours are my best.

    Always wanted to try darker lipstick colours but somehow they just are too stark on my face. I bought a red anna sui lipstick but so far I only used it once. I think pinks are great for brightening the complexion and making me look younger.

      Skintone : medium fair (stila 40 watts/GA LSF 4/MAC NC30)
      Best eye colour: Greens/Copper bronze/Some brown
      Worse eye colour: Purple/Plum

      Best lip colour: neutral shades/plum
      Worse lip colour: peach

      Even when my dark green or brown eyeliner/shadow smudges, I don't look so bad.
      But if I use purple or plum e/s, my eyes look like panda bears after a few hours.

          skintone : fair (MAC NW20 / NC25 somewhere in between)

          the worst eye colour for me is purple. i look like i got boxed no matter what shade of purple i try

          for lips, i cannot do brown/nude/really dark shades. i look... like i am a walking dead or something.

          best colours for me, lipwise, are pinks and more like natural lip colour kind, think clinique's sweet honey.

          eyes would be green, shimmery pastels, gold, light browns, beiges, etc.

                I thought I must be the only odd one who can't take browns.
                nahh you arent the only one! i always have a hard time buying eyeshadows cos i am on the look out for neutral looks.but the sas/ ba always recommend browns & i say i look terrible in them! its like the only neutral colour available is brown...

                when i have time i would type out the colours recommend for different skintones bu makeup international artists. that really helped me alot!

                cheers

                    I've got a medium skin tone and take purples and pinks quite well In fact I recently bought 3 eyeshadows in this shade

                    Not sure about reds though because they don't really appeal to me, so I've never tried them out :booty: I'm just guessing they make most people look bruised

                    I'm quite fussy with my browns as if they're too dark, they make me look more mature.

                      i'm rather fair (MAC NC25/ LSF 4) n i think i've got a weird skin tone that's neutral (mixture of warm n cool) coz i can use almost any shades on me. the few colours i've not tried are red & yellow e/s. i like to use red blushes thou i avoid brown e/s coz i think it makes me look too mature but bronzy shades are fine (think MAC Tan pigment & Teddy e/l) my fav eye colours are purples & greens.

                        Best eye colour: Pink, Lilac/Plum and also Grey/Charcoal for smokey eyes. Cool shades in general.
                        Worse eye colour: Haven't really tried anything that looks really bad, I'm generally not a fan of brown and warm shades though.

                        Best lip colour: Pink & Peachy shades
                        Worse lip colour: Purple and nudes

                          really? i have to try red some time when i am braver!

                          question: has anyone found that they can suit only certain shades in the same colour family? does that make sense?? like for greens, i can take bright green, so i bought mac greensmoke (an olive green) but i look like i have a black eye. i noticed same for the pinks even though i say i look good in pinks...

                          posting colour skintones as mentioned. will do the rest some other time, fingers too cold over here. the recommendations are a bit funny as i do not suit the asian colour reccomendations given but rather the olive & fair skintones.

                          cheers

                            ASIAN SKIN - Yellow-based skin tone & black hair

                            :note: can use a range of eyeshadow colours cos most shades suit brown eyes.

                            :note: avoid colours with bluish base or strong blue unless going for dramatic effect (cos yellow tone is enhanced)

                            :note: lipsticks - avoid bluish & pale tones

                            :note: gloss - deep pinks, sheer reds & apricot beiges - work well (as in more natural) rather than matt colours.

                            :note: blushes - eathy beige, light browns & orange tones.

                              OLIVE SKIN - medium to olive skin & brown eyes

                              :note:choose one element to play up & keep rest soft.

                              :note: avoid wearing brown on brown eyes cos it makes them appear smaller.

                              :note: use caramels, vanillas, taupes, greys, aburgines, mauves or baby blues.

                              :note: blush - reddy brown

                              :note: lipstick - brown-baes lipstick with hint of pink or chocolate red

                              :note: often suffer from dark under eye circles.

                              :note: look for pink & yellow toned concealer that can be custome blended to suit you .choose concealer lighter than natural skin colour.

                              :note: curl eyelashes so there isnt a shadow on skin
