Makeup Transformation: Matching Make Up
Make up artist and YouTuber Lisa Eldridge also caught on this trend and put together a tutorial showing how to pull off this monochromatic look, the video is up and posted here. We saw monochromatic fashion become a trend recently, make up just seems to be a natural progression. We decided to give it a try for make up transformation. We took before pictures- with our regular everyday make up and then after pictures with a matchy- matchy palette.

Hey Everyone! Thanks for all your comments!
I wouldn't do it there is too much effort behind it and I really don't think anyone is going to notice.
For a special occasion I would definitely consider doing this - especially in the red colour like Michelle's.
okay, wow!i had no idea how much of a difference matching nail polish makes!I am definitely going to try this!Probably tomorrow :D
I actually like this trend just be sure not to match to much, maybe match just two things
You all look adorable.
Mandy sizzles! That pink is great.
I actually don't mind matchy-matchy as long as it is not over-done. Nail polish and a lip gloss matching is good, but if you add the eye liner, shadow, blush, lipstick etc then it is just way too much. I think subtle is the key.
i honestly dont think it looks that good
