The monochrome makeup trend has already taken over almost every film industry around the globe. You would have noticed celebrities nailing it in movies and public appearances. Let’s see what it is and how to ace the trend like celebrities.

What Is Monochrome Makeup Look

The monochrome makeup trend is using products in the same colour palette. For example, if you are opting to paint your lips orange, your cheeks and eyes will also flaunt the shade in the same hue. 

From muted tones to dramatic vibrant looks, actors and influencers are opting for this new trend.

Neutral Brown

In her latest appearance at Koffee With Karan season 7, Kareena Kapoor Khan opted for a neutral brown monochromatic makeup look. She chose to don this look with an all-black outfit.

Her cheeks, lips and eyes were dusted and painted the soft hues of brown. Not only it was a ‘no-makeup’ makeup look but it also brought out her eyes. Bebo picked silver accessories and painted her nails in multiple shades.

Who can inspire you to go bold with orange than a makeup artist? In the above image, Nikkie de Jager, a Dutch makeup artist, was spotted nailing the monochromatic makeup look in the shade of orange. 

She picked orange lipstick and applied the same hue around the outer crease of her eye and below the water line. To oomph up the glam quotient, she lined the lower lash line with white kajal and beige glitter on the eyelids. False eyelashes only added the drama that would have been missing otherwise.

Blush Pink

While visiting for the inauguration of the DJWE accessory store in Qatar, Alia Bhatt picked up the blush pink colour for her makeup to compliment her all-white outfit.

For her lips and eyes, she opted for a slightly darker shade of pink than for her cheeks. She kept it simple with no kajal and eyeliner. Instead, the Darlings star went with adding definition to her eyelashes with mascara coats.
