If you are someone who is not a fan of popping colours and like to keep things one toned this makeup trend is for you. From celebrities to regular people, everyone has been crushing over this makeup trend that has started to make rounds. We’re talking about the trend of creating monochromatic makeup looks. Monochromatic makeup is when your face, eye and lip makeup are in the same colour palette. You can create a muted brown-toned monochrome makeup or an orange one. With this trend, you can take your makeup look in any direction. Let’s learn about a few looks you can easily recreate.
1. Pink monochrome
If you’re aiming to create a look that is all cute, fun and flirty then a pink monochrome makeup look is apt. Do your face makeup in the same usual way. After you’ve blended your foundation and concealer, you can add the first hint of pink to this look. Take a pink blush and load it on your cheeks. Make sure your cheeks have a healthy flush. You can use the Maybelline Master Chrome Highlighter in the shade Molten Rose Gold for the pink sheen.
After this use a rosy or pink-toned eyeshadow to add the element of pink to your monochromatic eye makeup. You can use the Maybelline The Blushed Nude Eyeshadow palette, to add pink colour to your lids. The final touch to perfect your pink monochrome look can be to add a hint to pink lipstick. You can use bold pink lipstick or a muted one, depending on your mood for the day. With this final touch, your pink monochrome makeup is complete.
2. Nude Monochrome
A nude monochromatic makeup look is perfect for every season and occasion. It is the perfect makeup to wear during the day or night and compliments all your outfits. To create a nude monochrome makeup we will first start with doing your eyes. Take a basic eyeshadow palette and add a light brown matte eyeshadow to your eyelids. To add a hint of sparkle, add a brown-toned shimmer and blend well. For this nude eyeshadow look, we recommend using the Maybelline The Nudes eyeshadow palette. It has the perfect mix of muted mattes and shimmers for a nude monochrome eye makeup look. Complete the eye look with some eyeliner and mascara.
For your monochrome makeup for your face, keep it very light and minimal. Take your creamy foundation and mix in some strobing cream. This will help you get a dewy and luminous base. To get the perfect shade of foundation you can use the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Finder tool. With this tool, you can virtually try different shades of foundation and concealer from the comfort of your home. To add dimension to this look contour your face. As a final touch, use some nude liquid lipstick to complete your beautiful nude monochromatic makeup.
3. Coral monochrome
This monochrome makeup look is not for the faint-hearted. If you’re in the mood to add drama to your ensemble, this is the look for you. To create this look do your face makeup as usual. Instead of using a pink blush, use a coral blush. Be generous with this blush, to make sure you have a pop of coral on your cheeks. If you don’t have a coral toned eyeshadow, you can simply repurpose your coral blush and sweep it across your lids. A great twist to this coral monochrome eye makeup look would be to make your lids glossy. After applying your powder blush, take some lip balm on your finger and apply it lightly to your lids. A tip would be to tap the balm on your lids, instead of swiping it. This will ensure an even application. Finish this look by adding an orange toned creamy matte lipstick.
If you’re confused about the choice of your lipstick colour, you can use the Maybelline Virtual Try On Tool. This tool enables you to try out products in real-time from your home. Browse through a wide catalogue of products and choose the one that suits your look the best.
Monochromatic makeup is universally flattering. The best part about this trend is that you don’t need a separate skill set to ace it. Play around with similar tone shades and create magic with your makeup. With an ounce of confidence and some monochrome makeup look magic, we’re sure you’ll look drop-dead gorgeous.
