i'm sorry, i know there are tons of threads on these, but not really answering my question.

since i'm slowly getting to realize my dark circles aren't THAT bad that i can't wear eyeshadow, i wanna purchase some e/s (and join in in FOTDs!). i've tried doing some research with FOTDs, maccosmetics.com, reviews, etc., but there's a huge selection and i don't know the finishes that well, so i need help. i want the perfect (or close-to)...

blue:

green:

yellow:

grey:

pink:

purple:

brown/tan/neutral/whatever:

again, sorry about asking this, but thanks for any help! :icon_love

EDIT: i have brown hair, green eyes, and i'm NC25 (or so my concealer is, don't know about foundations), stila 40 watt, kevyn aucoin sx05, bobbi brown ivory. (thanks, laura, for reminding me to add that
)

WOOHOO.. Jennifer is gonna post some FOTD's! You rock girlfriend


Now about the e/s. I dont think there is one answer for each of those questions but i can recommend which ones I love & i have blue eyes & dark brown hair!

PS. Edit your thread and include your skintone, eye colour, hair colour so we'll know what e/s to suggest!

Pink: MAC Canton Candy Paint or Petalscent or Gleam

Purple: MAC Mauvism Paint or MAC Trax

Brown: MAC Satin Taupe or MAC Tempting

Neutral: MAC Shroom or MAC Retrospeck

Oh and veluxe pearls & frost finishes are my fave finshes

Great suggestions everyone! I'm gonna print this out. As soon as I get back from my cruise I'm taking one of my extra checks and picking up a few of these so, I too, can be a MAC addict!!!
