– for lipstick, I have only 3 colours, red, pink, and purple. I mostly go for the red, as it pairs well with pretty much any outfit I am wearing. Pink comes a close 2nd. I find both red or pink also goes well with my skin tone. When it comes to purple, I am sort of on the fence. I have 2 shades of purple from maybelline that is much too dark for my skin tone and I rarely use it. However, I also have one from l’oreal that is much lighter which I like but it doesn’t have any stay on power.
– eyeshadow, I have 3 colours again. Blue, purple, and a colour called Amber Rush. I read a few articles that these 3 colours pairs well and brings out my eye colour very well. I don’t use the purple one as much, as it looks like I’ve been in a boxing match and took one too many hits to the eye. I love the blue or amber rush, as it does pair well with my eye colour.
