GIRL, I do it all the time, but mostly with eye and lip products…and occasionally also with blush and bronzer.
I never do it with foundation, concealer or powder, though. So, basically, no for the big skin products, because they cover such large areas, so mismatches are more obvious. But a green eyeshadow isn’t meant to match your skin color at all. It’s supposed to be different.
I have warm-toned skin, and I love a good cool-toned grey or icy silver eyeshadow. And I’ll wear a blue-based pink lip in a hot second.
I know that some folks won’t ever do it. They avoid colors that contradict their natural color temp or undertones, but I like things that purposefully “clash” sometimes. I think you can use that like a trick to make things stand out more. Plus, I just like the way it looks. 🙂
How about you? Do you ever wear colors that technically (according to “the makeup rules”) aren’t suited for your skin tone?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Ugh, I’m getting over a cold, and it hasn’t been the most awesome-est thing in the entire world.
I think I know where I caught it, too. It was at Target (I always seem to get colds at Target) last week. I was walking around getting stuff, and I remember thinking, jeez, we’re deep into cold season, and I haven’t caught a cold yet. I think I’m gonna make it without getting sick!
Of course, the moment you think that, you catch a cold…
I have two words for you: Cold-Eeze. It works.
