T

he probability of monochromatic makeup appearing more frequently than we can count is high. Many celebs have favored monochrome makeup at major events, adding to its allure among beauty enthusiasts. With fall just around the corner, this makeup look is a great match for the season’s hues. The warm-toned leaves that dot the landscape give a nod to the preferred colors of this makeup trend

What then is makeup that is one color? When a single shade of makeup products is applied to various facial features, particularly the lips, cheeks, and eyes, to make them match, this is referred to as monochrome makeup, aka “facial blending.” The result tells the tale of a well-balanced makeup look with a distinctive appearance.

How to do a monochromatic makeup and make it unique…

  • Choose your color: Pick a color you like that suits your skin tone. It could be a color you feel confident wearing, like brown or mauve.
  • Start with your foundation: After wearing your primer, apply your usual foundation to even out your skin tone. Keep it understated so the focus remains on the color you’ve chosen.
  • Coordinate your eyes: Use eyeshadows in different shades of your chosen color. Apply the lighter shade to your crease, the medium shade on the rest of your lids, and the slightly darker shade along the lash line. 
  • Harmonize your blush: Apply blush in the same color family to your cheeks. Start with a light touch and build up if needed. This will add a natural flush of color.
  • Conclude with your lips: Choose a lip color in the same hue. You can go for a lip gloss, lipstick, or tinted balm. Apply it to your lips for a complete monochromatic look.

Beauty tips:

  • Experiment with finishes: Play with different finishes like matte, satin, or shimmer to add dimension to your makeup.
  • Monochromatic highlight: Apply a highlighter in a similar color to the high points of your face for a subtle, coordinated glow.
  • Monochromatic liner: Use an eyeliner in the same color as your makeup to line your eyes, creating a unique and cohesive look.
  • Accessorize and coordinate: If you want to take it a step further, choose accessories (like earrings or a hairband) that match your selected color to tie your whole look together.
  • Stay confident: Your uniqueness shines through your confidence so rock your monochromatic makeup with pride.
