Do you Prefer Summer or Winter Makeup Colors?

UK FabSugar asked if you prefer Summer or Winter clothing, and I want to know if you prefer Summer or Winter makeup. Dark khakis, golds, browns, and purples were all the rage last season. But now, spring is finally here! This means that more lighthearted, flirty and pastel makeup shades will take center stage. I love both palettes, but then again, I'm a complete beauty-product junkie. Which makeup season do you like more?

The fall/winter colors go better with my skin tone and coloring, but also I just feel more comfortable wearing darker makeup and more makeup in colder months. I keep it simple in summer.

I'm not sure. I want to say Spring/Summer because I like the vibrant colors. I'm just not sure how well they look on my skin tone... I have a tendency to always stick with dark colors.

I love light makeup for the summer. I love the dark colors for winter like the Bordeaux lipstick and the gray shadow.

I don't really select colors based on the seasons, I stick with what looks best on me year-round. But as far as those photos in the poll, the spring/summer look is pretty ridiculous, but the winter/fall look is very sexy (if a bit too much).

i'm so fair complected that my skin tone hardly changes enough to constitute different colors. i stick with liners in deep purples, gray, shimmery browns and greens and occasionally golds and orangey shades. in the height of summer i can pull of a turquoise/bright green liner.

Because I am a "winter palette" (I have fair skin and dark eyes and hair), winter colors suit me best. But the summer look is always so pretty and fresh and golden! I think every person has a range of colors that flatter them best and it's all about finding that and being creative. Make-up is such an art and personal statement.

I'm undecided! I love rockin' both types of makeup! I love the drama of Fall/Winter makeup & the flirtiness of Spring/Summer. Can't choose because it's fun to experiment with both!

I had to pick undecided but I'm not - I love makeup also and the changing it up is what's so fun about it. Never wear the same color every day.

both are nice but I guess it depends on what you're wearing. The summer colors are fun and young whereas the winter colors are sexy and sophisticated. :)

I wear more of the fall/winter colors (brown, purple, gold are pretty much my staple colors), but I like the spring/summer look better in picture.

spring/summer makeup is more vivid and makes you stand out; and let's be honest who doesn't want to stand out and be gorgeous?

I wear pretty much the same makeup no matter what the time of year it is. Typically all I ever wear is red lipstick by itself or pink lips by itself or with some eye makeup. I do also like a darker red to make my lips look smaller, which I know is the exact opposite of what people usually go for, but I like the small 1920s lip look.

Warm-toned spring shades tend to look best on me but I can get away with some of the warmer winter/autumnal shades as well. I generally equate summer with no makeup because I live in California where summer whether is sauna whether.
