Collection after collection, Christopher Kane inspires us to step out of our comfort zone with his use of bold colors. His new collaboration with NARS (out today) is no exception. “I often use neons as neutrals,” says Kane. But the burning question is how do we wear bright makeup without upstaging our outfit and vice versa? Here, 4 outfit and makeup combos you can wear to any occasion, without looking like you’re trying too hard.
Make It A Combo
For A Lunch Date
Pair a sheer lace top with slouchy boyfriend jeans and a daytime smoky eye. Apply the nude shadow to the lid and line the entire eye with the purple shade.
For A Wedding
When wearing a pastel dress, pair it with neutral-colored pumps and makeup to match. Apply an understated blush on the high points of the face (forehead, cheeks and the bridge of the nose) to give your complexion a subtle glow.
For Sunday Brunch
Try pairing a statement dress with basic, black lace-up sandals and incorporate bright pink into your makeup look. Use the multiple stick to give your cheeks and lips a wash of color.
For Date Night
Matching your neon lip gloss to an equally bright skirt is easy when you pair it with a simple white tee. Keeping the rest of your makeup subtle and dewy looks pretty without drawing attention away from your outfit.
