3 great tips for matching your makeup to your outfit: Hair, makeup, and outfit it should all look just right before stepping out, but wait. Ever been told, you went too overboard or too less according to your outfit, and don’t know when to stop? Then read these tips to help you out the next time.
- Stick to one color scheme: You might’ve seen that palettes have a color scheme, and most palettes are sold that way to give you the perfect contrast. And it’s better to keep it that way, don’t try and mix different colors from different palettes. Know what colors can mix well and which don’t. And don’t go overboard with trying to perfect everything in one shade.
- Don’t aim to match everything: Matching everything isn’t a good idea at all. You will end up looking like a clown. Never aim to match your makeup with your outfit, like wearing blue eyeshadow with a blue dress. It just looks really weird. You can have a color contrast or some sort of scheme to it, but unless otherwise, don’t ever try and match your face to the outfit.
- Know your face: Know what looks great on your face, what type of makeup suits you best. The shape of your face may have certain looks that you can pull of like a star. So go for the ones, best for your type, and matching makeup to the outfit isn’t really a really such a tough thing. You just need the right tones. And try to match tones, not shades altogether. Like if you’re going for a dark look, just highlight one feature, and not all of your face.
4. Lipstick: Whatever may be the shade, lipsticks always make a statement. It’s important to plan outfits according to your makeup complexion too. If you’re wearing bold colored outfits, stick to neutral lips, and go the other way around if your outfit is basic.
5. Eyeshadow: Never, I repeat never fall into this trap, matching eyeshadows to the outfit is a told scam, don’t believe it. Stick to golden, beige when wearing dark bold colors, and if you’re wearing something neutral create that smokey eye.
6. Blush: similarly, blush shouldn’t directly match your outfit. Match your blush to your skin tone. It always works perfectly when you do so. And think no more. This is a lifesaver.
