Step-by-Step Guide to Matching Your Makeup with Bright Coloured Outfits

Are you tired of your makeup clashing with your bright-coloured outfits? Do you feel like you can’t pull off that bold lip or eye look with your vibrant clothing? Fear not, because, in this step-by-step guide, we’ll show you how to match your makeup flawlessly with any bright-coloured outfit with the essential makeup steps. 

Step-by-Step Guide to Matching Your Makeup with Bright Coloured Outfits   

1. Understanding Colour Theory in Makeup 

The first step to matching your makeup with your outfit is to understand colour theory. Complementary colours are colours that are opposite each other on the colour wheel, and they work well together to create a harmonious look. For example, if you’re wearing a bright red dress, the complementary colour is green. So, a green eyeshadow would pair well with the outfit. Now let’s talk about how to do makeup step by step. 

2. Preparing Your Canvas 


Before we start with the face makeup steps it’s essential to start with a clean and moisturised face. Cleansing your face ensures that there’s no dirt or oil that can affect the longevity of your makeup. Moisturising your face ensures that your skin is hydrated and prepped for the application of makeup

Next, apply a primer to your face. A primer like the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Primer creates a smooth base for your makeup to adhere to and helps your makeup to stay put for longer. It features a smooth matte texture that is waterproof and extremely lightweight. Apply a small amount of this primer to your face, focusing on the T-zone area. 

3. Foundation and Concealer Application 


Choosing the right shade and formula for your foundation is crucial when it comes to the basic makeup steps. You want to choose a foundation that matches your skin tone and has the right undertones to complement your outfit. If you’re unsure about your skin tone or undertones, visit a makeup counter and get a professional to help you choose the right foundation. 

The Lakmé 9 to 5 Primer + Matte Perfect Cover Foundation glides on your skin for a smooth and even skin tone. It blends effortlessly on your skin for a perfect, natural look. This foundation gives you medium to high coverage as it is buildable in nature for your convenience and as per the occasion. With SPF 20 and longwear formula, this foundation will keep your skin looking natural and flawless through the day. 

Concealer is also essential in creating a flawless complexion. Choose a concealer that matches your skin tone and apply it to any blemishes, dark circles, or areas of redness. 

Try out the Lakmé Absolute Creme Concealer that gives you an even finish and the perfect natural base. It provides medium to high coverage concealing uneven skin, dark spots and blemishes. Enriched with Vitamin E this crème concealer doesn’t crease into lines and nourishes your skin while making it look flawless. 

4. Eye Makeup That Pops 


When it comes to eye makeup steps, selecting eyeshadow shades that complement your outfit is key. If you’re wearing a blue outfit, for example, you can use a warm-toned eyeshadow like orange or gold to create a bold eye look. It’s also important to consider the finish of your eyeshadow. Matte shades are great for a more natural look, while shimmery shades can add some sparkle to your eyes. 

Application is also crucial when it comes to eye makeup step by step. Using a small, fluffy blending brush, blend the eyeshadow into the crease and outer corner of your eye for a seamless look. 

If you are looking for a versatile palette that complements all outfit colours, check out the Lakmé Absolute Spotlight Eyeshadow Palette - Berry Martini. With a combination of 12 shimmers and mattes, you can create any look to match your mood. Whether you want a bold, daring look or something more subtle and natural, this palette has got you covered. The unique shades in this palette will help you unleash your inner confident self and make your eyes stand out in style. 

5. Blush and Bronzer for a Natural Flush 


Finding the perfect blush colour to complement your outfit can be tricky. A good rule of thumb is to choose a blush colour that is the same tone as your outfit. If you’re wearing a warm-toned outfit, choose a warm-toned blush. For a natural flush, apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend it outwards. 

Contouring and highlighting can also help enhance your features when it comes to the simple makeup steps. Apply a bronzer to your cheekbones, temples, and jawline to create a sculpted look. Highlighter can be applied to the high points of your face, such as your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose, to add some glow to your complexion

Get ready to glam up your everyday look with the Lakmé Absolute Facelift Palette - Sunkissed Glow. This irresistible trio of makeup essentials includes a buildable blush, a cushion soft highlighter, and a nourishing bronzer all in one convenient palette. The easy-to-blend formulas give you a smooth finish with a naturally sculpted look. This palette is perfect for light to medium skin tones and is infused with moisturizing properties of argon oil to create definition.  

6. Lipstick That Matches 


Choosing a lipstick that pairs well with your outfit is crucial in completing your look. If you’re wearing a bright pink outfit, choose lipstick with pink undertones. If you’re wearing a warm-toned outfit, choose a lipstick with warm undertones. 

Check out this Lakmé Absolute Sheer Lip Mousse - Chocolate Temptation that suits all Indian skin tones and looks stunning with all kinds of outfits. It gives your lips the look of a bold, matte lipstick but it comes with the cushion, light-as-air texture of a mousse. Infused with the goodness of Cocoa Butter, it gives a matte finish yet keeps your lips nourished and moisturized without drying them out. 

When it comes to application, start by lining your lips with a lip liner to ensure that the lipstick stays in place. Then, apply your lipstick with a lip brush for precision. Blot your lips with a tissue and reapply for lasting wear. 

7. Setting Your Makeup 


Finally, use a setting powder like the Lakmé Absolute Loose Finishing Powder and setting spray to set your makeup in place. A setting powder helps to mattify your skin and prevent your makeup from creasing. A setting spray ensures that your makeup stays put for longer. 

Throughout the day, you may need to touch up your makeup. Carry a small makeup bag with you that includes your essential makeup products, such as lipstick, powder, and a small brush. 

Matching your makeup with bright-coloured outfits doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With these simple steps, you can create a harmonious look that will make you feel confident and beautiful.
