Which makeup shades are most (and least) flattering on you?

Good Friday, friend!

Let’s see, the shades which are most flattering on my tan skin tone (I am NC 42 in MAC) are pretty much in the warm, but not too hot, category. For eye makeup, warm browns, taupe, purple and bronze are my go-to shades – NARS FaZe and MAC Satin Taupe All Day, Every Day!
