Complimentary Colors Come in Clutch

When in doubt, keep complementary colors in mind when planning your look. Using complementary colors to match your outfit with your makeup is a trendy way to make a statement.

For example, if you’re wearing a yellow dress, wear a maroon statement lip, for a bold and beautiful look.

Monochromatic Matches Made in Heaven

Going for a monochromatic color scheme when matching your makeup and clothing can also be dazzling. Nothing screams summer like a gorgeous red dress or jumpsuit with a matching red lip. A perfect match like this is effortless but makes a red hot statement.

For a sexy and mysterious look, try pairing burgundy and black, a look especially appropriate in fall and winter. Try an outfit with darker hues, from black to grey, and a lipstick that is merlot or burgundy. Add a smokey eye, a strong brow, and heavy mascara for a look that will wow.

Pop of Color Perfection

Using your makeup as the pop of color your outfit needs is a great idea. While bright makeup can usually be difficult to pull off, it can look just right with the ideal outfit pairing. Playing it safe with your pop of color makeup is a must to make sure your look isn’t too overwhelming.

A summertime look we love is pairing your stripes, especially if they have a nautical vibe, with fuchsia lipstick. This is a little something different and is more playful than your typical red lip. This is a great idea for a daytime event and looks beautiful with a hint of light blue eyeshadow to even it out.

We love experimenting with blue-tinted eyeshadows, but they can go wrong really quickly. Another idea of how to incorporate this shade is with an all-white outfit. This fresh, dewy look is perfect for springtime and the wedding season. Pair this outfit with gold accessories for a little extra glow.

Natural Looks That Kill

Natural looks can be just as striking as your statement looks when done right. Try pairing nudes and jewel tones, such as emerald. Pair any emerald outfit with warm neutral makeup such as creamy beige lipstick and warm eyeshadow.
