Well that is the question.
You always hear beauty experts say, “Don’t match your makeup to your outfit.” I disagree. I think as long as you don’t look like one of Rainbow Brite’s sprites threw up all over you, then go for it. What’s wrong with a little coordination?
This weekend, I had a masquerade cocktail party which was the perfect excuse to wearreally over-the-top eye makeup. My mask wasn’t all too exciting: black, white, and silver. My dress was black, my shoes were black. Yawn.
So I found these fun and sparkly turquoise earrings and decided to match my makeup and nail polish to them for some pops of color. It was perfectly OK because it wasn’t a total head-to-toe, matchy matchy look. And everyone loved it! The key is to not match your makeup to everything on your person. But matching to one or two accessories or using an outfit color for inspiration is not only an acceptable way to go, but the way to go.
So let’s get down to business, shall we? In this week’s video, I’ll be showing you how to do an fierce turquoise smokey eye.
