How to Experiment with Monochromatic Looks

Monochrome is a classic and stylish way to coordinate a makeup look or outfit. You can quickly achieve a chic, put-together appearance without much planning with these tips!

The summer season calls for bright colors and fun, flirty looks. One amazing way to achieve this is by trying out monochromatic makeup and style!

This trend has experienced a serious revival over the past few years, and with so many colors and shades to choose from, the possibilities for the looks you can create are truly endless.

Here are some tips on how to put together a monochrome look that effortlessly stands out!

Experimenting with Monochrome

1. Start off subtle.

Even though a monochromatic look definitely makes a statement, you can also choose to do them subtly. If you have never tried a monochromatic look before, try to select a few smaller details to coordinate if doing an entire makeup look or outfit in one color seems intimidating.

This purple look definitely packs a punch, especially because the purple eyeshadow is the primary element of the makeup look. Especially if you have brightly colored hair, doing your makeup in the same shade is an easy way to accomplish a monochromatic look.

Boafo Beauty's Ohemaas Eyeshadow Palette has a beautiful deep purple shade along with several other jewel-toned hues. It is the perfect eyeshadow set to begin your collection of colorful shades! Check out more inspiration for eye looks here.

2. Complete a full-face in one color

One bright detail is fun, but completing an entire makeup look in one color really makes a statement. You can match your eyes, lips, and even cheeks to create a cohesive look that looks very put-together with little effort.

This pretty-in-pink makeup stands out with only a few details necessary. Hot-pink graphic liner is paired with some matching false lashes and bright lip color, meaning you only need a few products to achieve this look.

Boafo Beauty's Pink Lashes and Pink Bright Liner are the perfect pair for this makeup look while glowing skin with a sweep of fuchsia blush finishes it off.

3. Coordinate your makeup and outfit details.

Once you feel a little more comfortable with monochromatic looks, you can begin integrating one color into all aspects of your makeup and outfit.

This fiery look pairs Boafo Beauty's red lashes with a glossy cherry lip and matching blush and eyeshadow. The color is taken a step further with a red top and some jumbo clips.

Your look will make a greater statement with every additional detail that is incorporated. Don't be shy! You can even mix shades of a single color to create variety within the look.

This yellow look radiates sunshine. The lid shade is another color from the Ohemaas Eyeshadow Palette, and even though it's the only yellow featured on the face, the matching earring, top, and hair accessory tie in the color several times.

Accessories can be your best friend when putting together monochromatic looks. Try collecting clips, hats, and jewelry in several shades so you always have accessories that compliment your makeup or outfit.

Expressing Yourself Through Style

With trends constantly evolving, it's important to embrace fashion and makeup that make you feel beautiful and confident. Luckily, monochrome never truly goes out of style, so you can feel comfortable expressing yourself in whatever shades you prefer.

You aren't the biggest fan of bright colors? No problem! You can create monochrome looks in muted, neutral shades. If you don't like any color at all, you can even try an all-white or black look!

With so many shades to choose from, you will never run out of ways to style monochromatic looks. If you want to learn about more hot trends for the summer of 2021, check out more from Boafo Beauty.
