How to Wear Monochromatic Makeup

How to Wear Monochromatic Makeup the Nonboring Way

Last night at the Butter premiere, Ashley Greene proved that monochromatic makeup isn't a boring bet. Her matching pink eyes, cheeks, lips, heels, and Donna Karan dress were ladylike and chic. The key to mastering this palette is to choose different textures. Even though Ashley wore very similar shades, her cheeks were a matte flush, her lips had a glistening gloss, and her eyes were lined with shimmer.

Ashley's flushed look was all tied together by her rosy cheeks. To get a similar effect, extend blush a little above the apples to help link the color to the eye makeup. Try Kevyn Aucoin Blush ($37) in Shadore. You can also use a bit of blush underneath the brows as an added highlight. Then, apply a pastel metallic shadow to lids and underneath eyes as liner. Finish with a swipe of sheer candy-colored lip gloss and you're good to go.
