Which Came First – The Outfit Or The Makeup?

Everyone has heard the age old question of, “Which came first, the chicken or the egg?” I don’t know the actual answer to that, but I can relate this question to how I put myself together each day.  Occasionally I will wake up and decide “Hum, I really want to wear bright red lipstick today,” so I need to match my outfit accordingly.  Or, on the flip side, I’ll wake up thinking, “It’s time to sport that new sundress that’s been sitting in my closet,” so then the makeup scheme will have to follow.

Yesterday, my outfit came first, then my makeup color palette followed as I was inspired by the tropical print in my top.  Here’s a looksy into how it all came together from head to toe!

{Shirt by Jennifer Lopez for Kohls, Revlon Colorburst gloss in “papaya” and Revlon ColorStay nail color in “indigo night,” MAC eyeliner in “prussian” and MAC blush in “fleur power.”}
{A few added touches.  Cream lace clutch bought from Sassy City Chicks, Target sandals, hair quickly fixed with hot rollers (my new fave thing!), Banana Republic cream bangle with 2 homemade ones my mama made me!!}
Honestly, I would say even though I’m a makeup girl through and through, most days my outfit determines what kind of color palette of makeup I’m going to wear.

So I’m throwing the question out to you – “Which comes FIRST when determining your look for the day?  The OUTFIT or the MAKEUP?
