Mismatched! Eye of the Day


If you’re like us, you like it when things match.  Maybe we’re a little OCD, but you won’t find us out and about (or even in and…about, I guess) in mismatched socks…

Or clashing patterns…

We simply believe that there are certain things that go together…

One of the nicest things about makeup palettes is that oftentimes, complimentary colors are put together in palettes, so you know that they will blend well and compliment each other.  Also, all the colors you need are right there in front of you…which makes life easy, right?  Even sticking to products within on makeup line takes some of the guesswork out of cosmetic application, because you can count on them working well together.

Thing being said, and while we never like to have an oil and water type situation going on with our makeup, we…sometimes…like to go out on a limb and mix and match products.  Sometimes you just know, in your gut, that a marriage between things that weren't meant to "go together" has the potential to create something wonderful.


J took this idea and ran with it, using products from perhaps a record breaking (okay, there was never a record, I mean, really, who keeps track of stuff like this???) TEN different brands of product to create her look today.  Products by Cover Girl + Maybelline + Milani + theBalm + mally + YBF + Urban Decay + Laura Mercier + Ardell + her new Kat Von D “Little Saint” palette = one fabulous face and a beautiful Eye of the Day:


Are you a consistent matcher…or do you like to walk on the wild side and clash every once in a while?
