Match your outfit with your makeup for a unified, classy look. There are a variety of different ways to rely on makeup to enhance your beauty. One growing trend is looking at makeup as an accessory to your overall outfit. Of course, there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.
7 Tips to Match Your Outfit With Your Makeup
#1 Match the Tone
One of the most effective ways to bring your outfit and makeup into harmony is to think about the overall sheen of the two. If the outfit is more plain and neutral, for example, then you don’t want your overall face to be dewy and glowing. If your dress is shimmery and shiny, though, that’s when it’s time to play things up with a shimmery look from the makeup.
#2 But Don’t Match the Color
Effective makeup and outfit matching does not mean matching the color precisely. In fact, beauty experts say this usually doesn’t work. It becomes too distracting and people aren’t sure what to focus on.
#3 Go Complementary Instead
A better approach is to look at the outfit colors and choose complementary colors for the face. For example, a warm gold eye shade can look great with a blue outfit.
#4 Make One Item the Focal Point
It’s not a good idea to go with bold colors on the lips, the eyes and the cheeks. Instead, choose one area that’s going to play off your outfit, and let it get the pop of color while the other areas take on more neutral tones.
#5 Let Either the Outfit or Makeup Take the Lead
There’s certainly a give and take between makeup and clothing. If your dress is bold and bright, for example, more neutral tones on the face may complement it best. If the clothing is more on the neutral side, play up the lips with a bright red, or the eyes with a bolder color.
#6 Focus on the Eyes
Speaking of those eyes, they can be a key to getting a good complement with the outfit. Try a beautiful jewel tone like emerald, purple or sapphire to complement your dress.
#7 Don’t Forget the Blush
Blush is easily overlooked, but it’s another subtle way to inject a bit of color. Here again, choose a complementary look, such as light brown blush with a pink dress, for the greatest effect.
