written by Fatema Habib on Jul 06, 2019

Thanks to the trend-setters of the glamour industry, we always have something new to recreate when it comes to makeup. The recent buzz in the beauty world is matching makeup and outfit. Celebrities are stepping out matching their makeup with their outfits, making us drool over their beauty game. Whether you want to keep it minimal or go OTT, there is something for everyone.

To help you with makeup ideas, we’ve curated some of the best looks that you may want to recreate yourself...

Poppy waterline

Take cues from the oh-so-stunning Kriti Sanon and ditch your regular black kajal for a teal shade. Brownie points if you’re wearing a similar colour outfit! Lining your waterline with a poppy colour can make all the difference in amping up your eye makeup game. This is one of the most subtle ways of matching your makeup with your attire, if you want to avoid going OTT that is!

Shadow play

Academy award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o is the red-carpet queen and for all the right reasons. The Kenyan-Mexican actress who’s always got her makeup game top notch made a statement yet again. She teamed her aqua blue outfit with a similar shade of eyeshadow and gave us all the inspiration to go matchy-matchy. We are totally digging the highlight on the inner corners!

Pout perfect

When nothing works, match your lipstick with your outfit and attack! Selena Gomez looks like a million bucks as she teams her burgundy gown with a similar lipstick shade. We also love the soft shadow play on the crease line. It’s always best to play up any one element—eyes or lips—so you don’t tend to go OTT. And, if you’re wearing a statement pout, then keep the eye makeup toned down.

OTT lids

Sonam Kapoor teams her vibrant outfit with eccentric makeup and we cannot help but take notes. The diva teams her printed jacket with neon lids and boy, what a match! With her eye makeup game being the show-stealer, Sonam keeps the rest of her face makeup minimal with just a flawless base and nude lippie.

Match them lippies

Shilpa Shetty Kundra gives us all the makeup-spiration by matching her lipstick with her fusion wear. Even though the colour of her outfit is bright and poppy, the matchy lipstick manages to complement her attire to the t. If you’re looking for glamorous ways to match your outfit with your makeup, then two bright colours may just work wonders.
