Every girl likes to do makeup. Usually, women do makeup keeping in minds their outfits and occasion. Not only this, but she is also experimental at times through makeup and tries to create a new look. But if you are one of those women who like to keep a subtle and soft look in makeup, then you can carry a monochrome makeup look.

One special thing about a monochrome makeup look is that it never goes out of trend and you can easily carry it in any season. This is a look that looks very beautiful to see. If you too have made up your mind to carry a monochrome look in makeup, then in such a situation, you should take special care of some things.

So today, in this article, RVMUA Academy's Founder, Celebrity Makeup Artist and Skin Care Expert Riya Vashisht is telling you about some things to keep in mind while applying monochrome makeup-

Choose Right colours

When you are doing monochrome makeup, it means that you are playing with a single colour. In such a situation, it is very important to choose the right colour. It is considered best to use pink tones when doing monochrome makeup. However, you can also select some neon colours like orange, sky blue, etc. Try to avoid shades like brown, or green in monochrome makeup.

This is how eye make-up

When doing monochrome makeup, you should pay special attention to eye makeup. Avoid eyeliner and kajal during eye makeup. Blend well, taking out the eyeshadow lightly from the lid. Also, apply kajal with the same colour under the lower lash line and blend it well.

If you want, you can also give it a pop look by applying a highlighter to the inner corner of the eyes. At the same time, keep the mascara a little heavy. If you want, you can also use false eyelashes. Before eye makeup, do not forget to shape the eyebrows as well. For this, you should use a brown shade instead of black, so that the eyebrows are naturally seen in more shape.

Highlight face

During monochrome makeup, every feature of the face is highlighted. However, this does not mean that you should brighten up the entire face. Highlighting the face means that every part of your face is well visible in shape. Therefore, in monochrome makeup, there is a special focus on contouring and highlighter. You should focus especially on contouring and highlighting from lips to cheeks and eyebrows.

How to highlight lips

Since every feature of the face is highlighted during monochrome makeup, you should also focus on highlighting the lips. For this, you first shape the lips with the help of a lip pencil. After this, you apply a highlighter on the lips first and then apply lipstick after that. This will make your lips look more beautiful.
