Makeup and your ensemble should be like peas and carrots…they should complement each other, not compete with each other. Therefore, how does the matchy-matchy beauty look work? Whatever your OOTD (outfit of the day) is you simply wear colors that are exact matches or come very close. Choose a color from your outfit then utilize it on your lips or maybe to play up your eyes.

What if you are wearing a piece that is multi-colored or has a print? Does this mean it is time to become one with the Care Bears rainbow? Makeup should always be fun, but a more streamlined look will truly work best. Choose one of the colors that are not as pronounced and draw it out with your makeup for a dramatic effect.





Over the years the match makeup look has been seen during runway shows for fashion houses such as Fendi and by style-riskers Rihanna and Kerry Washington. Here are a few more celebrity looks to help get you in the match making mood.
