How to Choose the Right Make up for the Right Dress

Having the perfect little dress for a special occasion is a must but you have to finish the look with the right face! If you think that your makeup does not matter when you are wearing a flattering dress, think again. When you wear a dress you have to consider how you will pair if off with your skin tone and how appropriate it is for the occasion, well now you have to add makeup to the list. We all know by now that every woman does not look the same in the same dress and that some colors can age us and look unflattering, and now we can add makeup and dresses go hand in hand to the list.

If you are wearing a floral dress with feminine prints whether it’s for a party or shopping, your makeup should go well with it. To create a perfect face for the dress, create a cat-eye look with b
lack lined eyes. Add a light pink lip color to your lips and a subtle blush. Make sure to avoid bright colored makeup that is as bring and busy as your dress.
If you choose to wear a bright red dress try to go for a subtle or minimum makeup. For this look, add faux lashes that will put some attention on your eyes. For the eye shadow, use something that is nude or blends in with your skin tone, nothing too overpowering or colorful as the dress. A nude or peachy lips and barely-there blush will pull the whole look together.

ImageEvery one of us should have a little black dress because it is a must! Black dresses can easily be dressed up and are perfect for a number of occasions. When it comes to the makeup and your little black dress, you want to add drama to your eyes. The perfect way to add drama to your eyes is by creating smokey-eyes with dark tones such as grays and metallics. When it comes to the lips keep them nude with a glass. When it comes to black dresses avoid a plain face since this will wash away the dress and create a boring look.

When it comes to the holidays or even a night out, you might want to try a metallic dress with lots of sparkle and shine. Since the dress brings enough attention, you do not need to do anything dramatic to the face. For this kind of dress all you need is glossy lips, accentuate the cheeks with a warm bronze color, and add neutral tones with a hint of sparkle as your eye shadow.

So next time you are glammed up in your perfect dress, make sure that your makeup goes well with it!

Types of Women’s Dresses

Women’s fashion is empowering and always changing. Over the decades, women have suffered quite a deal in order to look good and stand out. While we still suffer by wearing high heels all day and sometimes even shapewear that can give us that hourglass look, fashion has become more bearable and comfortable. When it comes to dresses there are even more options, styles, designs, and there is a specific dress for the right occasion. Today you will find a variety of dresses from casual, to night out and cocktail, to work appropriate and sweater dresses, even special occasion dresses and let’s not forget the wedding and prom dresses. Whatever situation or even you have, there is a dress made for it.

When it comes to work, we all rely on pant suits or skirt suits that sometimes get tiring and boring. Today, most offices allow you to wear dresses but not just any kind of dress; it has to be work appropriate! A work appropriate dress has to be below the knees or just above the knees. A work dress can’t be too short especially when you sit down by your desk or office meeting. The right work dress should not be too overwhelming so look for solid colors like black or red. A work dress should not show off too much cleavage if any so look for boat necklines or of the shoulder necklines. A great work dress can have a black bottom part/skirt and a pop of color top. Look for dresses that can be dresses up and be work outside the work area as well.

Casual is something that most of us love and consider only to mean a pair of jeans and a cute top. Today you can also find casual dresses, a whole large variety of them! Casual dresses means no suits, formal wear or ceremonial dresses but that can change as some wedding allow the guests to come in casual attire. Casual dresses are anything that is comfortable and that you can wear at home as well as to the grocery store, shopping or even a lunch with friends.

Most of us like to go out especially if we are single and want to mingle! The fashion for going out dresses has really changed and short is very much in. A night out dress is something you will probably never wear to work. Night out dresses should be fun, well fitted, colorful or have a print, and definitely sexy that will go great with a pair of heels. So remember, whatever the occasion and even, there is a dress for it so there is no reason to be stuck in jeans or pants.
