When Clothes Inspire a Makeup Look

The lovely Kat from Kat's Colourings is the perfect example of someone who matches everything so beautifully. I'm generally not one to put too much thought into what I'm wearing when I apply my makeup. As long as I'm using colours that are not going to clash with the colour of the clothes I have on.


This blouse I was wearing had such gorgeous colours that I was suddenly inspired to replicate them on my eyes.

I found the perfect purple colour in my loose minerals collection, and for the blue, I didn't have to look any further than my latest go-to, the warm palette. I also used a neutral from the said palette to contour. The 6-pan MAC palette provided the colour for highlighting and contouring.
I used L'Oreal Million Volume Lashes mascara, 2 coats is all I need for the desired lashes.



I had fun finding the perfect purple and blue to suit my blouse. I need to do this more often. Do you like to match your makeup to your outfit?

    1. Thanks Rose, my sister gave it to me. It's not something that I probably would have bought myself, but looks nice on :)

  3. I love the look you created! I'm big on matching clothes with makeup, I often put my outfit on before I get stuck into the make up part. You look stunning and I <3 your necklace!
