Matching Your Makeup to Your Outfit

A few months ago, I had an event where I found myself mingling between local designers, enjoying some nice treats, and of course very nice wine. I couldn’t help but notice this beautiful dress by Peach & Pepper; I fell in love with it right away.

As I was trying it on I was thinking: what kind of makeup should I wear with it?  And this dress is REVERSIBLE, so my options suddenly increased.

I love this dress, it is so versatile. You can wear it for any occasion, as long as you wear the right makeup of course.

I want to show you the two types of makeup that I chose for this dress (and believe me, I have too many options to choose from).

For the patterned side I wanted something simple, so I just used eye liner on my upper lash line. I applied some mascara, a nude lipstick and highlighter! I wanted to keep it simple because those flowers on the dress already catch a lot of attention!

Now, with this beautiful black dress, I wanted to wear something more intense. So, I applied eyeliner on both the upper and lower lash line, red lipstick (you can never go wrong with red lipstick), highlighter, and mascara.

I’m not a fashion expert, but I'm pretty sure that your makeup must go in harmony with your clothes; it's just part of the outfit. Mixing clothing colors and styles can definitely affect the type of makeup you decide to go for.
