Introducing: Makeup Recommendations

We have all found at least a few items we absolutely love and reach for often because they just suit us, whether flattering on our skin tone, with our hair color/eye color, or based on our skin type. This list is designed to help compile our tried and true recommendations to help others find their favorites (and hopefully, you’ll find some new favorites, too!).

We are all our own experts and the power of collaboration allows us to come together and harness all of that expertise in a way that can benefit the entire beauty community. Some of the most popular questions we’ve asked have been related to everyone’s favorite pink blush or red lipstick! Together, we can create a more comprehensive list of our personal favorites, based on our skin tone, skin type, hair color, and eye color.

Share your favorites!

Use our easy recommendation form to add your favorite products and holy grail shades to our list. (Please allow a few minutes for the list itself to update.)

MULTIPLE LISTINGS ARE OKAY! They’re good, even! If 10 people with similar coloring all recommend the same product, isn’t it a sign that it really must be amazing?

Foundation recommendations can be added to the Foundation Matrix.

Head over HERE to check out recommendations as recommended by your fellow enthusiasts.

P.S. — I put in all the product types/colors I thought were appropriate, but if I missed one (I am sure I did!), just let me know in the comments, and I’ll add it ASAP.
