The cutest prom dresses for 2012 are already lining the racks, and the gowns gracing the red carpets this awards season are certainly giving us plenty of inspiration, too. But which makeup trends go with which dress?
The celebs who top the best dressed lists are always good fashion role models, Seventeen Magazine reports. Take Lea Michele, who rocked a scarlet, high cut gown at this year's Emmy's. This Gleek rocked pink lipstick that complemented - not matched - her fiery fashion choice.
Rooney Mara's ensemble at the Oscar's was perfect inspiration for those planning on wearing white. Mara added drama to her ivory gown by sporting deep red lipstick and dramatic eye makeup. While Mara made her gown look edgy with her bold makeup palettes and dark hair, you could also give a white gown an ethereal look by sporting loose curls and a shimmery eyeshadow palette in gold, bronze and copper.
Of course, who could forget Rihanna's sultry outfit at the Grammy's? If you are making a bold statement with your dress - whether it's a bright color, bold cut or interesting pattern, it is best to stick with simply makeup ideas. Rihanna's daring neck line and slit were balanced by her simple makeup palette - black eyeliner and nude lips were all she needed to glow.
