Your skin tone/coloring: pale, cool
Favorite copper eyeshadow? I have a few (though I have to be careful with coppery shades) but one that comes to mind immediately is Pat McGrath’s Copperized.
Favorite taupe eyeshadow? Only one??? How to choose? Stila Grace, theBalm Insane Jane, Smashbox Rock Me and Hang, NARS Lhasa and Stud….I could just go on and on…
Favorite plum eyeshadow? for purple toned plum, it would be UD Stormborn and for more red/burgundy plum shades, again from UD’s GOT palette, Weirwood Leaves and also Tarte Sinful and Dior New Look #3.

Thank you so much Christine for keeping this feature in for me!
Your skin tone/colouring: Porcelain, with pink undertones

Favorite copper eyeshadow? I love, love and love copper eyeshadows and have accrued quite a few in my stash. My favourites are:
Magellan’s Light and Phoenix Awakens – Temptalia SG On the Horizons palette
Auburn Blaze, Copper Penny and Antique Bronze (Pixi Beauty Reflex Light palette)
Euphoria, Quartz and Aurora from Lorac’s Soileil palette.

Favorite taupe eyeshadow? A fan of taupes too!
My favourites are: MAC Satin Taupe, Tiara SG, Suspect UD and Phosphenes SG Temptalia

Favorite plum eyeshadow?
Plum eyeshadows don’t generally feature in my eyeshadow arsenal – I tend to use burgundy shades from the Maybelline Burgundy Bar palette instead. Although I have used PMG’s Blue Blood on occasion.

Your skin tone/coloring: Under my name (blue-green eyes, dark hair)

Favorite copper eyeshadow? Well, as long as it has really GOOD quality, I have yet to meet a coppery metallic that I didn’t love! That said, I definitely have as my #1 PMG Rose Fire Nectar from Venus In Fleur’s Voyeuristic Vixen as my all-time favorite.

Favorite taupe eyeshadow? PMG Divine Mink and Enigma, MAC Magic In Your Eyes and Satin Taupe, SG x Temptalia Phosphenes, ColourPop Koosh SSS, ND Glam Midi Palette taupes, plus the delicious CT Bejewelled taupey chocolate metallics!

Favorite plum eyeshadow? PMG Labs Night Creature, MAC Star Violet (or is that a copper?), Menagerie Cosmetics Flight Club and also Huda Rose Quartz matte plums, SG x Temptalia Sakura Glow and Lunar Illumination, SG x Mel Thompson Tiny Marvels Bug-a-boo and Luv Bug! (I know, I really do know, that’s a TON of shades! )

This is so difficult!

Favorite copper eyeshadow? UD Copper from Naked 2 and the copper in MAC Feast Your Eyes
Favorite taupe eyeshadow? MAC Satin Taupe, I also like PMG Divine Mink.
Favorite plum eyeshadow? This one is so hard to answer! MAC Star Violet, as some others have mentioned is lovely. There are some very pretty plum leaning ones in the Temptalia palettes. I have a lot of plummy eyeshadows though some are purplier, and some goes a bit red. I like plum shades!
