Celebrities Provide a Lesson on Matching Your Makeup to Your Outfit

What once was a major makeup no-no is now making a huge comeback as a big beauty trend. Matching makeup to your outfit may remind you of something you used to do back in the '90s: pink lipgloss + pink shimmery eyeshadow + pink baseball tee = that photo of you that you've tried to bury in your parents' house. While it may leave a bad taste in your mouth, this makeup trend has grown up just like you and become more fabulous this time around. Here is a lesson in tastefully matching your makeup to your outfit from celebrity beauties themselves.
