The Monochromatic Beauty Trend Is Going To Be Huge & It’s So Easy To Do.
As a self confessed beauty junkie, every year I hold my breath and wait for New York Fashion Week to arrive. Not for the clothes but for the beauty trends that come from it. This year there was the dark lip and wet hair statements but the big stand out was Monochromatic Makeup which featured in the Anna Sui, Thom Browne, Marc Jacobs and Rheem Acta shows. So what is it and can we make it work in the real world?
Well, you will be pleased to know that monochromatic makeup is a trend that is pleasing to the eye and so easy to do.
Monochromatic makeup, as the name implies, is the technique of keeping your eyes, lips, and cheeks within one shade range — and it’s having a huge moment right now. To wit, everyone from Rihanna to Gigi Hadid has been hitting the red carpet sporting perfectly coordinated shades.
The best part is that it’s easy to pull off. Normally rooted in beige, brown, pink, or red, it can be accomplished easily by picking a shade that looks good on your skin tone, and keeping all the other products within that color family. Not sure where to start? Simply dump out all your makeup on a flat surface and make pairs or trios. This is a great time to break into the many eye palettes you rarely use or neutral lip colors you’re not sure how to wear.
