How To Get The Monochrome Makeup Look

Written by Dayle PereiraSep 15, 2020
Being beauty mavens at heart, we’ve seen trends come and go. Some are bizarre, others ridiculous and a few, highly relatable. The latest makeup trend on the block—Monochrome makeup falls in the last category. A makeup trend in which the eyes, cheeks and lips are painted in similar tones of the same colour family, this one is a big hit amongst several makeup moghuls. While we’ve seen the lighter shade of the trend, here’s how you can get the beauty look in burgundy (which looks divine on duskier skin tones too!) with these makeup tips.

Maroon magic for the eyes

Marsala power for the pout

Although you may be apprehensive to opt for maroon tones, when used in the right way, it can look chic as ever. For the eyes, choose either a single wash of maroon colour over the lid or blend the dark shade in the crease with a lighter plum tone over the lid to add dimension to the eye makeup.

To give your cheeks a bit of reddish warmth, choose a deep burgundy blush, which blends seamlessly into the skin. All you want is a hint of colour and a whole lot of definition on the cheeks.
