Matching your lipstick to your clothing: Do or Don’t?

May 17, 2012

I’ve been really in to bright lip colors lately (yes, a little late on that bandwagon, but at least I made it). I’ve also been very drawn to bright lipstick-hued clothing lately. This made me wonder: Should you match your lipstick to your clothes? Should you forget the bright lipstick when wearing bright colors? Or, if you do opt for lipstick, should it contrast the color you’re wearing? Or am I the only one overthinking it this much? (I realize it’s most likely that last one)

Here’s a few looks I’ve tried with both matching lips to clothes and contrasting.

So, what do you think? Matching or contrasting? Or should I stop worrying so much about this altogether? (again, probably that last one)

    I think I like the contrasting ones. I love the coral lips with the purple pants especially! The pink lips with the pink skirt is cute, so maybe different shades in the same color family work well, too.

    I like the contrasting colors too. It adds interesting excitement and variety to the outfit. People are complicated beings, so the multi-color look presents that aspect of personality. The pink lips are a shade darker than the pink skirt and that works.
