How To Pull Off Wearing Black and White Without Looking Dull


How To Pull Off Wearing Black and White Without Looking Dull At the MEGA Silver Gala tomorrow, everyone will be decked out in black and white, and we’re excited to see how the celebrity guests will play with these two colors. Black and white are classic–especially on dapper suits and dreamy gowns–but it can get tricky to wear them without blending in amongst a crowd. Instead of going for safer choices–like swiping on a red lipstick for that pop of color–there are more ways to wear a black and white ensemble without looking bland. Try out these makeup looks below!
1. Focus on the eyes.

Looking for the perfect makeup to go with your white frock? Keep the rest of your face in neutral hues, and go for sultry, smokey eyes. It’s simple yet it creates depth to your entire face, and adds more drama to your elegant white gown.

2. Get peachy. 

Give a sweet touch to the strong, sophisticated black hue. Going for an overall peachy coral makeup is a fool-proof way to avoid looking washed out when wearing black. Take it from Coleen Garcia and Kathryn Bernardo‘s look at the Star Magic Ball!

3. Ditch the red pout for a brown matte shade.

This trendy Kylie Jenner-esque shade can be your replacement to the usual red carpet red lip (in case you want to take the edgier route). It’s the perfect combination of soft and strong, making you standout amongst a crowd–looking sexy, of course.

4. Wear a plum lip with a white gown. 

Turn heads at a party with a bold plum pout. This sweet-edgy hue will bring life to any white ensemble.

5. Keep it soft and sweet. 

When in doubt, pair your classic black and white look with an understated makeup. But to avoid looking dull, opt for a light, sweet shade of pink lippie, fill in your brows, and add a dose of highlight. Finish off the look with a sleek hairdo to create a polished look that’s anything but boring.
