Monochromatic makeup may be the hottest 2017 beauty trend, but pulling it off can be tricky. Find out what monochromatic makeup flatters your skin undertones.

If you have warm undertones, makeup shades such as peach, gold, khaki green or brown will give you a naturally glowing skin. If you have cool undertones, makeup shades such as blue, purple, pink and silver are the safest choice. If you have a neutral undertone, you are in luck! Both warm and cool colours can flatter your complexion.

If you choose the right monochromatic makeup for your skin tone, your makeup will look flattering and natural. If you select the wrong shade, your monochromatic makeup look may make you look sick, washed out and cakey.

Before settling upon a dominant monochromatic colour, start by a skin undertone test. The first skin undertone test is to expose your wrists under natural light. If your veins are greenish, you are most likely warm-toned. If your veins lean more towards blue or purple, you are cool-toned. If you cannot decide between blue, green or purple, then you most likely have neutral undertones.

Mauve monochromatic makeup is especially flattering for those with cooler undertones. True to monochromatic makeup convention, you want to make sure that your eye shadow has a lighter tint than your lip makeup, and that your blush has an even lighter tint. Thus, starting your monochromatic makeup routine with the lipstick application first, in order to ensure that your eye shadow and blush to have a comparatively lighter tint.

To pull off this look, use the Maybelline lip liner Color Sensational Shaping Lip Liner in Magnetic Mauve and the SuperStay Matte Ink Lipstick in Lover. For your lids, use Maybelline’s eyeshadow palette City Mini Palette Chill Brunch Neutrals; use the vibrant violet shade as the single wash of colour all over your lid and crease. To give your monochromatic eye makeup a fresh and neat look, work with Maybelline’s Master Precise Ink Metallic Liquid Eyeliner in Violet Nova. Finally, give your look a three-dimensional and satin finish with Maybelline’s blush and highlighter Face Studio Master Blush Colour & Highlighting Kit.

Bronze monochromatic makeup instinctively enhances the complexion of those with warm undertones.

Desiring a sun kissed monocratic makeup look but you have cool undertones? While you should absolutely stay away from bronze makeup with yellow or brown hues, bronze makeup tinted with pink hues can provide you with the perfect alternative.

Peach makeup is probably one of the biggest 2017 beauty trends. While peach makeup is a flattering shade for those with warm-undertones, Maybelline has what it takes for you to create the perfectly natural peachy glow, even with cool undertones.
