Match the Makeup to the Outfit

Hello again, winter beauties!

I came across this unique website called Borrowed Closet. Basically, you rent designer clothing, accessories and handbags for anything from weekend trips, girls’ night out or just for everyday wear.  They carry a decent variety from top designers like BCBG, Alice + Olivia, Free People etc. This is the perfect site for the “Fashionista on a budget.”

While perusing what I wanted to rent, my mind, as usual, went right to makeup, and I started day dreaming about what makeup looks to do with each outfit. Scroll down to see what I came up with….

Borrowed Closet

I’ve been obsessed with these black and nude mesh “illusion” dresses that literally give you an hourglass figure without a single workout or juice cleanse. This dress goes perfect with bold, black smoky eyes and nude lips, like Ms. Olsen’s below. The makeup is dramatic, however it incorporates the same colors as the dress, so it really works together.

This winter/spring sheer shirts and leather pants are everywhere. Keep the leather pants the main attraction by going with simple, glowy makeup like Megan Fox’s look below. The shimmer on the eyes, cheeks and lips keep the same theme as your shiny black leather pants while the natural eye shadows and gloss subdue the entire look.

Please do wear this buttoned sheer top with a tank or crop top under…bras with leather pants? The 1990s called, they want Madonna back. image(1)

Another trend that makes me smile these days are black and white stripes. They look good on everyone and pay homage to Beetlejuice, what’s not to love?! This striped jail break top goes great with bold red lips, like Camilla Belle’s below. It just makes such a COOL combination with the black and white. Notice that Camilla kept her eyes bare, just a touch of mascara and liner. She also kept her face makeup clean, no blush. This really draws people to her bright cherry red mouth. Okay, that’s it. I’m buying this top.
