How To Match Your Makeup to Your Outfit

Makeup has always been an important ally of a lot of women, but unfortunately, not all women know how to properly match makeup with their outfits. This isn’t a surprise, considering that most of the advice focuses on applying makeup and choosing the right brands, rather than showing women how to combine these two. For that reason, here are a few tips that will help you learn this skill and look stylish:

Don’t go overboard

Wearing a lot of makeup and a showy outfit might look good on famous people shot by professional photographers, but showing up at work with a bright red suit and heavy blue eye shadow will likely make you look funny, rather than stylish. Unfortunately, it is what it is, you just need to decide which one do you want to accentuate: your outfit or your makeup? If you’re choosing to put emphasis on your makeup then it’s best to choose a low-key outfit that won’t take the attention from your meticulously applied makeup.

Match your makeup to accessories, not the clothes

A lot of pieces of advice focus on matching the colours of your makeup to the colours of your outfit. While that is largely true, it can sometimes be difficult to match your lipstick or eye shadow to the colour of your dress. In that case, it’s advisable to pick one accessory, such as jewellery or a bag, and match your makeup to that, instead of the whole outfit. Plus, you will look more stylish and presentable. If you still want to match your makeup with your outfit, then you should focus on one garment only, rather than the whole outfit. For example, wearing a simple white shirt with cute skirts that you can find online, and then matching your makeup to the most prevalent motif from your skirt will make you look more elegant and hip.

Don’t try to match everything

An unformed look might make you look safe, but at the end of the day, it’s not that exciting. As mentioned previously, matching your makeup with your whole outfit might not be the best idea, instead, be sure to focus on applying your makeup right and accentuating parts of your face you’re proud of. So for example, if you love your full lips, don’t be afraid to wear red lipstick, and don’t be afraid to match it with your red outfit. Trying to match everything together won’t look that compelling, therefore it’s always better to focus on certain points, so you’ll appear more stylish.

Feel free to experiment

Some prefer to wear nude, white, black, grey and brown clothes, which is fine, as after all these colours are timelessly elegant. But in order to make your outfit pop, you should definitely try experimenting with different shades of makeup and accessories. Wearing a uni-coloured outfit deserves to be spruced up with boldly-coloured eye shadow or a bright pink lipstick. Additionally, you can also wear a statement necklace or a pair of exquisite dangling earrings, which will surely make you look phenomenal and fashionable. Experimenting is a great way to discover interesting outfit combinations, so feel free to try different things until you find something that works for you.

Wearing everything in nude tones is surely the safest choice, but we all need a bit of colour in our lives. Don’t be afraid to try different styles, and if you’re not sure how to pull it off, you can always consult someone who’s more into fashion and makeup. Finally, don’t expect perfection from a start, because learning a skill takes time, so make sure to practice, and soon you’ll see that matching makeup and clothes will become a regular part of your daily routine.
