FASHION 4 Fashion Styling 101 Rules for Matching Your Makeup to Your Outfit Victoria Begin & Praise David Looking for a new makeup trend to take for a spin? Coordinating your makeup to your outfit is not only fun, it’s pretty much foolproof! Makeup, after all, is part of an overall look, so it makes sense that the elements should be coordinated. However, like all makeup trends, it can be tempting to go overboard – stick with us as we run through 4 easy rules for matching your makeup to your outfit, and avoid a future faux pas! Rule 1: Stick to one color palette Listen, we’re huge fans of boldly colored clothing – we love prints, color blocking, and expressing ourselves through fashion! However, if you’re thinking of matching your makeup to your outfit (and your outfit is on the bold side), you need to be careful. A bold shade on your face and your body can prove disastrous. Think about a bright blue sweater with matching blue eyeshadow. Now, this isn’t to say that you should steer clear of colorful makeup altogether. That’s not it at all. Just take note of the clothing you’re wearing and if it’s, say, a bright coral dress or top, consider using a light hand to apply blush and lipstick in complementary shades. Choose an eyeshadow in a shade that compliments coral, and try to stay away from literally matching this element of your makeup to your outfit. It just doesn’t work in quite the same way as lipstick or blush – more on that later! 4

FASHION Rule 2: Distribute colors evenly We mentioned earlier that matching your makeup to your outfit is an easy makeup trend to master. While this is true overall, it doesn’t mean that every item of clothing will be easy to match! For example, if you’re matching your lipstick to your dress, you’ll likely have a tricky time not going overboard. Don’t feel bad, though – even the most skilled stylists and makeup artists have a hard time pairing any lipstick color with a dress and keeping the look polished and elegant. No one said working with colors and shades was easy, and it’s especially difficult to properly match a makeup color to a large garment. One way to make sure you avoid a faux pas is by evenly distributing your colors. Consider choosing one of your accessories, such as your shoes or purse, and matching your lipstick or eyeshadow to that particular item. Not only will this save time, as you’ll only be focusing on a small item instead of a full piece of clothing, you’ll also be coordinated in a way that is even more polished than matching your face to your entire outfit. Red purse? No problem – you can easily find a complementary shade for your lips that will tie the outfit together in a very neat way. 5
