Monochrome makeup is a unique beauty trend that involves wearing the same color makeup products on two or more of your facial features, including your eyes, lips, and cheeks. It is a trend that adds harmony and whimsy to your makeup look and allows you to sport a whole face full of your favorite color or the shade that looks best with your skin/hair/eye color.
Read these tips to rock the monochrome makeup look.
Choose a base color that complements your skin tone. Colors that work great for the monochromatic look are red, pink, bronze, brown, nude and orange. However, if you are feeling extra adventurous, you can also choose purple, grey, blue or even green as your base color. The colors that work best for you will depend on whether your skin has warm, cool, or neutral undertones.
Use a variety of shades. Once you have decided on a base color, use varying shades of the base color for your makeup application. If pink is your base color, for example, then use a medium shade of pink on your lids, a lighter shade on your cheeks, and a deep shade of pink on your lips.
Use one color. You can also opt for the traditional monochromatic look by using the same color and shade for your eyes, cheeks and lids. It is perfectly fine to apply watermelon pink, for example, to your eyes, cheeks and lips when you are trying to achieve the monochromatic look.
Try a variety of values. Another way to get a monochromatic look is by using lighter to darker versions of the same color. For example, you might use pale, medium, and dark violet. Get makeup for your eyes, cheeks, and lips in varying values of the same color. You can also use shade-adjusting drops or brightening bases and primers to adjust the value of your makeup.
Experiment with intensity. You can experiment with the intensity of shades by mixing sheer makeup with bold makeup. You can wear, for example, a sheer eye shadow or blush with a bold lipstick.
Mix and match makeup textures. Makeup comes in a variety of textures like cream, matte, satin and shimmery. For a youthful glow, match creamy makeup with shimmery makeup.
Blend products together.To bring your look together, dab a bit of your blush into your eyeshadow. Alternatively, you can blend some of your eyeshadow into your blush. You could also add some of your eyeshadow to your lipstick color.
