Make up for winters?

Have never found a lipstick I feel looks right so thought I'd ask here. Any other make up shades you swear by?

I was surprised to find I can wear brown eyeshadows - Rimmel's Orion quad and Max Factor's cream-to-powder in coffee and pearl beige. I have pale blue eyes so the beige tones frame them subtly iyswim.

Are you 100% positive you are a winter? I'm asking because cream and brown eyeshadows don't suit winters.

Anyway, winter makeup suggestions:
Mac Ruby Woo
Mac Red
Mac Plumfull
Clinique Pudgy Peony
Revlon Red Velvet

Mac Dollymix
Mac Pink Swoon
Bobbi Brown Maui

Dark grey or Black eyeliners.
Silver, grey, purple, emerald green eyeshadow. But most winters find that they don't need eyeshadow because of the strong lipsticks.

Def a winter but because my eyes are so pale I find I actually have to tone them down or they look like zombie contact lensesgrin.
