What's Your Favorite Makeup Color Family?

What's Your Favorite Makeup Color Family?

Not too long ago, I was on a call with celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, the global creative director for Avon. While providing tips for lipstick application, the wife of hunky actor Patrick Dempsey made an observation with which I definitely agree: most women naturally gravitate toward makeup items in one particular color family. This got me to thinking. I'm somewhat of a peaches and cream girl, myself, but tell me about which category that you typically prefer, using Revlon lipstick's palette as our inspiration. Are you into warms or cools? Or perhaps you go for bolder tones with a kicked-up edge.

Pinks always catch my attention somehow. I'm a cool toned girl though so they usually work best for me

Plum/mauves

Reds/corals, because they go with my natural lip-color.

Bright fire engine red for my hair. Bright colour (any) for my eyes. And either red or light sheer rose for my lips. As long as I don't clash with myself I'm happy.

I am all over the place with eyes but my favorite is purple since it;s goes perfectly with my deep browns. as for lip; when I do wear it, which is hardly ever, I tend to prefer either a nude gloss or a coral...

Hmm I would have to say pinks, nudes, and very toned down roses.

I always like the pinks best in the tube but for what actually looks good on me I have to go with roses or nudes.

For lips: plums/mauves, berries and roses. Nothing too pale or too dark, nothing orangey, no gold hues. For eyes: taupe/brown, plum/purple/mauve/lilac, certain greens.

Yeah, I definitely gravitate towards pinky-browns and play it safe with lip color.

nude, plums and browns flatters me. I picked plum because it lighten up my face while being subtle.

Pinks are my favorite. They're the most flattering to my fair skintone. I also like peaches sometimes.

I voted for corals/reds, followed by pinks and browns. The family I like least is nude. C'mon, whose nude is it really for?

I agree with solitaire 100%. I have a couple of tons of lipstick in every color under the rainbow and then some. :makeup: I picked roses cause I had to pick one.

Nudes, plums and browns (said the last one)

I like corals/reds because of my skin and hair colour.

Roses, pinks, nudes and reds. I can't help it, I love experimenting!

I actually gravitate to everything. I love lipsticks so am willing to experiment with all the colours.

Rose is my standby, but otherwise it depends on my hair color, since my skin is pretty neutral. When it was dark, blue reds. And when it was copper, nudes and even corals. When it was platinum, pinks.
