Do you love the simplicity and elegance of monochrome outfits? Do you wish you could achieve the same effect with your makeup?
Well, you’re in luck! This blog post will show you how to create a monochrome makeup look using just one lipstick.
Yes, you read that right. One lipstick can do it all: your lips, eyes, and cheeks. It’s easy, fun, and versatile. Plus, it saves you time and money. So, grab your favourite lipstick and let’s get started!
How to Choose The Perfect Lipstick Shade
When applying lipstick as blush and eyeshadow, it’s important to be selective with which shade you use. A bright red lipstick may look great on its own, but when going for a monochrome makeup look, swap out the bright reds for a shade that’s a little more muted, such as pinks, corals, and nudes. For a warm summer glow, try peachy or orange lipstick. For a cool winter vibe, go for a berry or plum lipstick. For an everyday look, you can’t go wrong with rosy or mauve lipstick.
How to Create The Look!
Now that you’ve chosen your lipstick shade, it’s time to apply it as blush and eyeshadow. Here’s how to do it:
Start by prepping your skin with moisturizer and primer. This will help your lipstick glide on smoothly and stay on longer.
Next, apply your foundation and concealer as usual. You can also set your base with powder if you have oily skin or want a more matte finish.
Then, take your lipstick and dab it lightly on the apples of your cheeks. Use your fingers or a fluffy brush to blend it outwards towards your temples. You can also apply some on the bridge of your nose and chin for a sun-kissed effect.
For the eyes, swipe your lipstick across your eyelids using your fingers or an eyeshadow brush. You can also apply some along your lower lash line for extra definition. Blend well to avoid any harsh lines or creases.
Finally, apply your lipstick on your lips as usual. You can use a lip liner first if you want more precision or a lip gloss on top if you want more shine.
Creating a monochrome makeup look using one lipstick is a fun and easy way to achieve a stunning beauty look with minimal effort and products.
All you need is one lipstick that suits your skin tone and style, and you can use it as an eyeshadow, blush, and lip colour!
