Monochrome makeup has been on trend for the past few seasons, and if you’ve yet to give it a go Valentine’s Day is the ideal occasion. As the name implies, monochrome makeup is the beauty technique of keeping the products on your face within one shade range—and the holiday’s signature shades of red and pink translate perfectly.
Plus, it’s easy to pull off—simply choose products within your desired color set and apply them to your eyes, cheeks, and lips. Pro tip: Use the same product on two, or even all three areas of your face; think outside the box about product usage (ie. use lipliner as eyeliner or eyeshadow as blush); and don’t get caught up on achieving an exact color match between products.
