When we talk about matching our makeup to the outfit we're wearing, usually it's in regard to a dress, maybe a statement handbag or shoes. But if you think about it, the clothing item most of the world sees us in -- in the colder months, anyway is -- ughghgh -- outerwear.

Why this had never occurred to us until now, we really can't be sure -- but we do know who to thank for our beauty routine-altering revelation: That would be the always experimental, eternally fabulous Rihanna, whose Instagram-documented 26th birthday party celebration in Aspen has been giving us unreal amounts of FOMO all freakin' week. (No hard feelings regarding our invitation, Ri -- we know how whack the USPS can be in times of inclement weather.)

All envy/sadness aside, we couldn't help but feel inspired by RiRi's perfectly paired lipstick-puffer-coat-and-trapper-hat situation, all in the exact same skin tone-flattering shade of fuchsia -- kind of puts an end to the whole "too much of a good thing" adage, doesn't it? According to Fashion Bomb Daily, her clothing is all by Moncler -- so naturally, it's on the pricey side. We'd die a little bit to see Rihanna walking into a MAC store with a bright pink $1,250 hat in tow....
