    I try to match my clothes or I wear black and then I can wear any color I desire!

    it depends on a few factors:
    1. my mood (whether i am feeling creative or lazy to conjure up anything more complicated than liner and mascara)
    2. the occassion, if it is work-related, i just go for a neutral look, if it is anything else, i go crazy.
    3. the amount of time i have to do my make up/get ready, needless to say the more time i have, i can go all the way with my make up, the whole works. i like to take my time!

    I don’t match my make up to my outfit. that said, however, if i am using a bright colored eye look, i will wear something neutral.

    • I choose colors based on moods, sometimes, too! I’ll do it to weather, haha (which tends to have an effect on my mood as well).

    I think my daymakeup are a bit more edgy than most people are doing it, I love dark heavy golds and sparkling shadows. And only go for nude ones when I am working.

  4. It depends. Mostly I either match or compliment the colors in my outfit. But also it’s about mood. If I feel like doing a pink look, it won’t really matter what I’m wearing. Sometimes I even pick the clothes to match the makeup.

    Often I try to match my clothes. BUT, a lot of times I get an eye makeup look in my head and then have to find an outfit that goes with it!!! LOL…

  6. Brooke

    Needs to match my outfit completely! Or if there’s a look I saw online that I want to try, I will do it and THEN find an outfit to match accordingly.

    I’m African American with a golden tan complexion so I wear color very well. I like bright colors with specks of gold or silver. I usually pair it with a neutral gold that blends into my skin tone and then add bright color on top of it. Then I line my bottom with one of the bright colors from the top.

  8. I just go with whatever my mood suits me in the morning. :)

    Usually I do something that compliments, but not totally matches my outfit. Or if I have a look in mind I’ll pick an outfit that’ll go with it. Don’t like when someone is wearing the same color head to toe. I used to literally wear only one color (top, bottom, belt, socks, accessories, shoes, headband) when I was a little girl, that was my interpretation of “matching,” I was a sight, lol!!!!

    Matches jewellery which has to match outfit, which has to match my mood! :P

  11. Sanayhs

    I’ll pick whatever I feel like playing with that day, and hope it doesn’t clash with everything else I’m wearing! I switch things up a lot so all of my collection gets lots of love.

    Whatever colour clothes i am wearing for the day definitely has to match the colour of my eye makeup. But if I am wearing black, I make sure that the eye makeup, the colour of my bag and shoes for the day matches else I will just have too many colours on me. The last thing I want is to avoid looking like a lighted Christmas tree !!!

  13. Shefali

    If I’m wearing clothes with warm shades, then that’s how my make up will go. Cool colored clothes – cool shades.

  14. What I am wearing, what mood I’m in, day/night look.

    Things like that ^_^
