    FIT TO PRINT: How to Wear Makeup With Spring's Wild Patterns

    In the 2004 sleeper hit Garden State, Zach Braff lays down on his parents' suburban rug - and when the camera pans out, his patterned shirt matches the carpet.

    Now, that cinematic moment is happening on the catwalks, as everyone from Miu Miu to Club Monaco  puts out crazy prints for Spring (and Twenty Seven Names even staged their lookbook against giant matching patterns).  But how do you pick makeup for an outfit that's bolder than usual?

    The trick: Keep your face clean and add one strong line or color - that way, you're complimenting your wild patterns without trying to compete with them (and making the ensemble wear you in the process).
