Matching your makeup to your clothes

Yes, I'm very well aware that this trend can get out of hand pretty easily, where you end up looking like you are going out for Halloween instead of to a party. But done the right way, this matching trend can look totally awesome. The key is to pick a color and then keep the rest of your outfit and makeup super neutral. Don't pick a blue eyeshadow to match a blue dress and then also wear a red lipstick. You don't want to have color overload.
Here J.Lo, Zoe Saldana and Chanel Iman match their lipstick colors to their dresses. The trick with matching lip color is to make sure it's exactly the same color — a little difference will stand out in a bad way.
With eye color, you can pick a lighter version of the color you are wearing, like Kim Kardashian West does with a light blue to match her bright blue top. Nicole Richie chooses a smoky light gray eye to match her sparkly gray dress. Amber Riley chooses a popping teal color to match her dress.
If you are wearing an outfit that has blush undertones (aka any variation of pink), you can match your blush to your outfit like Demi Lovato, Kim Kardashian and Rose Byrne did. Just don't overdo it — your cheeks should be much lighter than your dress, not the other way around.

Haha it's definitely a delicate line to flirt with from being fun with your makeup and looking like halloween. It has to be done just the right way. Personally, I think Amber's is a little too bright for my taste but I really like the other ones
I've never really seen the whole matching blush to your clothes thing before. It's really pretty and, to me, just the right amount of subtle. As for Amber Riley and Kim K's eyeshadows, I don't know. Blues still make me cringe.

Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
Review with Mew; The Blonds x DISNEY VILLAINS : SS2019 w @ NYFW
Mew here, and I was feeling particularly villainous today, so to also get you in the wicked mood I did a quick review of one of my favorite runways inspired by my favorite Disney villains. One of my all time favorite fashion runways is luxury fashion brand THE BLONDS presenting their SS’19 collection which was inspired by some of our hated? loved?Disney villains. The designers were undoubtedly successful in capturing the essence of Disney's most wicked characters! Here’s a look at my favorite pieces and their inspirations: The show started out with one of the baddest baddies in Disney: Malificent Malificent's coat was the inspiration and the piece was modeled by one of the designers himself Philippe Blond. He left the runway bloody after that walk but then proceeded to clean it up using one of my FAVE pieces of the night! Sir I respect your vision but please no…that looks expensive. Me, with my poison apple in tow, on my way to poison my 2nd husband after he writes me into his will: ± Next section was dedicated to Dr Facilier the CREEPiest villain to grace Disney Animation since Jafar…: Dr Facilier He still gives me chills whenever I think about his creepy smile but as an inspiration for this number? CHILLS ..but the good kind this time. The gold detailing on that vest is almost hypnotizing. ± Next up we have Wicked Witch of the Seas, ready to take your breath away! : Ursula Loved the webbed finger gloves and floorlength purple feathers; pay homage to the queen. And what is a sea witch without her cronies, eels Flotsam and Jetsam modeled by the ever stunning Dupont Twins. We LOVE a skin-tight bodysuit and highlighter green. ± THE MAIN EVENT was definitely Paris Hilton on her Cruella De Vil ish, modeling with her cute chihuahua. : Cruella De Vil The red lip contrast to the black and white mix thigh boots? A LOOK *No Dalmatians were harmed in the making of this STRUT* 101 Reasons to love this fur ensemble.^ Feeling nasty yet? ± Personally I LOVED every piece but these were a few of my favorites.
