Does Your Makeup Match Your Personality?

Does your makeup match your personality? Are you a fun, outgoing person that wears bright, bold colors? Or a more serious one that perhaps wears subtle shade? I am forever always guilty matching my makeup to my clothes.

Oh my god I admitted that.

Yeah, it’s a problem. I tend to wear a yellow shirt and suddenly I want to wear gold or yellow eyeshadow. I’ll wear green chucks and suddenly I want to do a green eyeshadow look! So my makeup actually does match my clothes just not my personality.

I’m a very sweet, very loyal, very trustworthy, goofy, silly, sarcastically funny (not everyone gets my humor), nerdy kind of girl. I laugh too hard, I laugh too often, I smile all the time, and I’m shy at first when I meet someone new but quickly become chatty AF if I like you. I love hard, I’ll give you the very shirt off my back if I think you need it, I like to take care of the people I love, and I’m always honest. I forgive easily. I put 1000% into everything I do.

I don’t think my makeup really matches my personality though! I think my personality shouts bright, fun colors! I used to love wearing bright, loud eyeshadow shades but nowadays I prefer more subtle, natural looks. And dare I say matte is my finish of choice. So, nope, my makeup doesn’t match my personality at all anymore!

My makeup may be more subtle nowadays but my personality still remains as silly and goofy as ever.

How about you?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’m actually a pretty shy person who wears super girly clothing fully of dresses/skirts (I don’t actually wear pants except for workout leggings to workout) and lots of flowers and lace. You would think my makeup would be full of neutrals, and while I do wear soft pinks and peaches, my preference is for bolder colours. Neutrals are just soooo boring to me, and I think they look muddy against my skin. I’ll wear a toned down version for work, but give me colour any day.

    • Isabella Muse

      Shy!? you? NO! You’re outgoing with me! But the pretty dresses, flowers, and lace def sound like you ;-D I’m boring lately so neutrals just work for me šŸ˜€

        I’m only outgoing with people I connect with. YOU! šŸ™‚ But put me in a big group, even if it’s with people I know, and I’ll be that quiet shy one who just listens to everyone talk.

        • Isabella Muse

          aawwww <3! I feel special! I really do! I adore you and I'm so glad I'm one of the people you connect with! I'm shy in big groups too unless I know the people! That's not a bad thing though! Listening versus talking is sometimes all one needs ;-D

    I’ve been super boring lately with makeup. I use to have more fun. I don’t think my makeup (or lack thereof) matches my personality too well. Or, maybe, I’m just more bland than I thought!

    • Isabella Muse

      You’re not boring! It’s just the state of things at the moment! Makes you just eh about makeup when there’s such much chaos going on around us! You aren’t bland I promise šŸ˜€ <3!

    Scary. Iā€™d better grow up. I think my m/u matches my college self, maybe? Always did a lot of bold, esp lips, after the older go-round of concealer lips. I still love bold, but am getting into cool neutrals, more age-appropriate.

    Bronzer and highlight on the eyes to give that 2005 pop. Texan here…stubborn and fierce at heart

    Hey, I always match my makeup to my clothes, at least in undertone, no shame in that. šŸ™‚ And yeah, I’d say so, on some level. I’m a very “march to the beat of my own drum” sort of person and my makeup is the same.

    • Isabella Muse

      Glad I’m not alone ;-D I am too when it comes to makeup and clothes!

  • Shayne

    Musey, I am so glad you admitted you match your makeup to your OOTD… Because I do too! And it’s such a 1987 thing to do but I don’t care. I think my make-up matches my personality. I’m mostly quiet, an observer, even with my closest friends, but I do have a loud funny side with a dry, sarcastic sense of humor. I wear all kinds of color & finishes… I just got into trying matte eyeshadow. I used to be all about shimmer, but being almost 48 (April baby here), I figured it was time to embrace the mattes. I still LOVE my sparkles, though. I don’t care if I’m too old for it!! And, as always, I think you are divine and so lovely, inside & out!

    • Isabella Muse

      I totally do it ;-D and freely admit it haha! It’s fun! If I wear a green shirt I want to wear green eyeshadow to go with it ;-D I love my sparkles too you aren’t alone but I finally learned that mattes aren’t too bad a deal either ;-D You are soooo sweet! This comment made my entire day thank you so much! And WEAR whatever you want! Age is a number ;-D enjoy yourself and if you love if that’s all that matters!!!!!!!

    Interesting thought exercise. I suppose my makeup reflects my life philosophy. Pragmatic, practical. I use makeup to correct issues. Dark circles, less than ideal eyebrow growth and direction. Same for eyelashes.

    Felt tip eyeliner in blackest black is an amazing tool. One can get right into base of eyelashes.
    Art theory really applies here. In college, an art instructor did an entire module on lines. The effect of lines.
