One of the most common questions we heard at Keoji is, "Do I color match my makeup with my clothes?" Well, that depends on what you like. Keep in mind that your look should be harmonic, not matchy-matchy.
Matchy-matchy means blue eyeshadow, blue sweater and pants, blue shoes, and blue eyes. On the other hand, harmony means using eyeshadow colors that highlight the eyes and complement your outfit.
For instance, purple eyeshadows can create a more beautiful and sophisticated look if you are wearing green or blue, while brown colours complement gold or copper outfits.
The key is to match your clothes and eyes subtly.
Here are some tips on how to enhance your look. Ready to make an impact? Let's begin.
1. Leopard Print
If you're wearing an animal print, like the classic leopard print dress, you can match your makeup to create a striking look. Wear sneakers if you're going for a casual look or dressed up with a pair of heels.
The classic leopard print dress goes terrific with a bright red lipstick such as #03 Red Only from PERIPERA Ink The Velvet 4G, which offers a flexible application with the ability to go gradated or full-on to depend on your style preferences.
We loved this dress with smokey brown eye makeup. You can try Lady Milk Tea from MISSHA Triple Shadow. The MISSHA Triple Shadow is a compact eyeshadow that comes in three complementary shades so that you can achieve a natural gradient.
For your cheeks, don't forget to use a caramel colour such as #BE01 Fig from A'PIEU Juicy-Pang Water Blusher, which creates an easy-to-blend experience for everyone. Applying this blusher to your skin will have a natural flush and a signature "watercolour" effect.
2. Floral Dresses
Floral print dresses are the perfect choice to wear on any occasion. This dress can be used in the winter and fall and throughout the summer and spring. Since floral dresses are full of patterns and colours, it can be challenging to create a sophisticated style.
It's essential to note that large flowers are ideal for petite body types. Small floral designs are more flattering for all body types.
Whether you use a big or small floral print dress, it's essential to pair it with neutral or nude colours.
Colours such as black, beige, white, nude, and silver are ideal for this dress. From your makeup to the shoes, adding neutral shades is a terrific way to create harmony with your style.
You can try No. 07 Light Brown from ETUDE HOUSE Drawing Eye Brow to create well-defined brows that frame your face.
3. Sky Blue and Pink
If you're wearing pastel tones, like sky blue and pink, you want your eyes with a bright pop of colour. For instance, if you're wearing a soft blue blouse with a pink jacket, you can combine this look with gold to brown bronzer and warm colours like red and copper.
We like Gingerbread Honey Cookie from ETUDE HOUSE Lovely Cookie Blusher and ETUDE HOUSE Play Color Eyes Wine Party, which features impressive colour shades browns to golds, to nudes and rose reds.
For the lips, you can wear a lip balm which is naturally tinted.
4. Silver and White
If you're wearing silver and white, your best option is to combine them with metallic colours. Metallic makeup can make you look delicate and romantic, especially when you combine it with. Remember to maintain the shimmer subtle and focus on the high points of your face.
You can also wear No. 01 Shooting Star from ETUDE HOUSE Bling Bling Eye Stick to add a hint of sparkle and bling to their makeup. They can also be used to highlight or add a sparkle to your cheekbones or brow bone.
