You have the perfect face of makeup on and you’re getting ready to hang out with your friends. You’re now looking for the perfect jewelry to compliment your makeup, but you can’t seem to find anything! How annoying is that? Don’t fret too much, this article is exactly what you need. I’ll give you some tips on how to glow with your makeup and jewelry.

Complimentary Colors

If you have a necklace or earrings with a pop of color in them, be sure to find colors in your makeup that compliment the jewelry colors well. For example, if you have a necklace with blue or aqua, then match your eyeshadow to it. 

Or if you want to contrast your makeup, then experts say to use the color wheel for inspiration. Colors that work well together are on opposite sides of the wheel. So go have some fun and experiment with new looks.

Highlight and Shine

There is plenty of sparkly jewelry out there, and just because your jewelry shines, doesn’t mean your makeup can’t! So add some highlights to your makeup routine. It’ll pair well with your jewelry. That way you can shine throughout the day!

The use of undertones is pretty important when it comes to pairing your makeup with your jewelry. There could be some hidden potential to pull your look together that you could be missing out on.

Pairing metal (silver, platinum, and white gold)  jewelry works well with color undertones and pastel colors for your makeup. On the other side, pairing gold, copper, and bronze for people who have warmer undertones work well with earthy tones such as caramel, mocha, and olive.
