Which came first, the chicken or the egg? This is an age-old riddle which continues to puzzle one and all. Much like the puzzle of whether to match your hair to your makeup or the other way around continues to puzzle the truly beauty obsessed! We lay the conundrum to rest with these tried and tested hair and makeup pairings that you can do without worrying about what goes well with what!

Messy hair + nude makeup

Easy, messy hair with barely-there makeup perfectly complement each other. You could also go for a shadow-y eye with just eyeshadow on the upper eye lid for a woke-up-like-this look.

Deep, rich lips + sleek bun

Deep, dark and sinfully rich colours look very sophisticated and call for an equally sophisticated hairstyle like a sleek bun.

Kim Kardashian has made this look iconic, with her sharply contoured cheeks and her sleek, dark hair. This look works because you are balancing the meticulous precision of the contour with meticulously straight hair.

Dramatic winged liner instantly brings an air of vintage beauty to your look, so team this with a retro-inspired hairstyle like retro curls or a bouffant hairdo.

Fun, flirty and extremely girly, fringes are paired well with equally fun fringes. Add an extra detail with a ribbon or a headband for an instant trip to your childhood days.

Glossy skin and long lashes are dreamy, so complement them with an equally dreamy, soft hairstyle like an up-do with soft face-framing strands left loose.

Smoky eyes + top knot

Edgy smoky eyes need an equally edgy hairstyle. But the hair needs to be pulled away from the face so it does not compete for attention with the bold eyes. The solution? A chic top knot!
