Nope! I rarely think about what I’m wearing when I put on makeup. I just do what I feel like needs to be done. But it usually works out just fine, as I’m mostly wearing black as well.

I usually coordinate my clothes with my makeup! I always put on my make up first, based on my mood and how I’m feeling, then pick my outfit. Luckily, 90% of the time I wear neutral makeup and/or black clothes, so it’s not hard. But I think it’s especially important to coordinate when wearing colours on your face or in your outfit.

Of course I coordinate MakeUp with clothes. Wearing brown, making brown MakeUp. Black t-shirt, black MakeUp… Is that weird?! πŸ™‚

I try not to since it can be a little cheesy and uncreative to match your makeup exactly with your clothing. I like to use complementary colors. For example, if I am wearing something blue, I will do a purple eyeshadow look and try to incorporate a small amount of blue in somehow like in the crease or in either corner of my eye so I wont look completely off lol. If I am wearing a top with multi-colors like a top with a flower design, I will use the accent colors or colors that are not heavily shown in my top in my eyeshadow look to bring those out.

My look is very exaggerated girly. Like Blair Waldorf meets Barbie. I love bows and ribbons and ruffles and lace… I don’t always “match” my FOTD to my outfit, but a look I wear often is ultra feminine: UD’s sin on my lid with lots of mascara, MAC’s so sweet so easy cream blush, and MAC’s creme cup or snob on my lips (or NARS schiap if I’m feeling gutsy). Not necessarily matching, but it “goes”.

When you’re talking about coordinating it makeup-wise, not really. But coordinating it meaning glaming it up when I’m wearing a gorgeous LBD and killer heels, and toning it down when I’m wearing a flowing maxi dress then yes. πŸ™‚

i usually wear neutral eyeshadow then i match my blush and/or lipstick with what clothes i wear for the day.

Oh, yeah. I don’t think it looks right if you’re wearing cool makeup shades with an outfit that has warm tones and vice versa. If you’re wearing white or black, I guess anything goes.

i wear a lot of black too cuz i’m into the ‘dark’ look:))
i usually just pair warm colored clothes w/ warm eyeshadows, cool w/ cool, black w/ black, colorful w/ colorful. some girls are annoying and tell me when i wear green eyeshadow why am i becuz i’m not wearing green clothes lol. i think it looks better w/ a contrasting color like black or pink? πŸ˜›

OF COURSE!!!! πŸ˜€
Actually… I coordinate my clothes with my makeup, because I don’t use makeup but I always have polishes nails, so I usually choose my clothes from my mani πŸ˜›

Yes and no, usually yes somehow. But like today, I have a neutral warm makeup and a purple t-shirt. And I never wear black.

I kind of don’t coordinate, and kind of do. I have to make sure it doesn’t “clash” in both color palette and in style! I don’t coordinate in terms of PLANNING but it’s just gotta match somehow LOL.

Sometimes, yes. I like to spice up my neutral colors with a bit of color that matches my clothes. Today I’m wearing moss greenes to I made a neutral look with green eyeliner.
But especially with bold lipsticks you need to be careful of what you wear so the colors don’t clash!

For me it depends. Sometimes I’ll match the blush and lipstick and leave the eye colors to at least not clash directly with any color clothing I’m wearing, but if I’m dressing up then I’m more likely to have a perfect match in there some where, especially if the dress is in the lipstick color range.

Yes – either pick up a colour or tone in the ensemble, or at least make sure my makeup doesn’t clash with my outfit!

I will also match the style of makeup to the outfit – for example, if I’m wearing a light summer sundress, I wouldn’t do a smoky eye.

I totally do!

First I put on my clothes, according to my mood and to what is required on that day at work. Say, my boss is not there and I am in a super good mood, I’ll wear bright pink and flip flops. Then I coordinate my makeup. If I am wearing a top in a lipstick color (pink or red), I will try to match the lips to the top and take everything else from there. With any other colored top I’ll start with the eyes first and make sure they go well with whatever I’m wearing.

i usually make sure my clothes and makeup don’t complete – like if i wear black i prob wouldn’t wear brown eyeshadow or at least i’d wear a cool rather than warm brown. So basically I wear warm with warm and cool with cool and usually only wear bright colours with casual outfits.
