Beauty Trend Fall 2011: Matching Makeup

"Matchy-matchy" might bring to mind visions of the overdone 80's; however, the matching makeup of this year's fall fashion shows like Mina Ricci, Ralph Lauren, and Marni were anything but overdone.  The eye-catching shades used twice on either lips & nails, lips & cheeks, or eyes & lips were harmonious and subtle. The trick to pulling this look off is to very opacities and play with different shades of color.The easiest way to thy this trend is matching lips & nails.  Here are my ideas for having fun with this trend:

Blue Eyes & Nails

 Ulta Blue Eyeshadow
Bonita Aqua Marine Nail Polish
Lancome Pink Poodle Skirt Lipstick

 The Sunset Look

In addition to "matching" makeup another big beauty trend inspired by the soft warm light at sun set.  This look takes the matching makeup look one step further. As seen at Rodarte, this look consists of a burnt-caramel palette for eyes, cheeks, lips, and nails.  

Sonia Kashuk Gold Caramel Nail Polish
Lancome Metallic Pose Eyeshadow
Lancome L'absolu Rouge Fleur Impressioniste Lipstick
