Beauty Trend: Demi Lovato Matches Her Lipstick to Her Dress, Twice!

Last night at the 2012 People’s Choice Awards 19-year-old former Disney star, Demi Lovato went matchy-matchy not once, but twice.

The "Skyscraper" star arrived wearing a salmon-hued chiffon gown with a matching pale peach glossy lip. Then, later, she performed in a crimson gown with complementary tomato red lipstick.

As Lovato proves, the matchy-matchy trend is still going strong, but there are a few key tips to keep in mind when you try it:

1. Don’t match everything. If your lips also match your dress, shoes, eye shadow, nail polish and ring, you’ve officially gone overboard.

2. Match your hues exactly, or make sure there’s at least a few levels difference. If your lip color isn’t identical to your dress, then just keep it in the same family (think: pale pink lip with a bold pink dress).

3. Eye shadow should stay tame.  You want the focus to be on your lips; matching your eye shadow tends to be off-trend.
