Easy Monochromatic Makeup with Just One Product

 
13

Maybe it’s the summer heat going to our heads, but we’ve been opting for easy, unfussy makeup lately. Don’t get us wrong—we’re still all for elaborate full-face looks that take an entire arsenal of products to create. But sometimes simple, slap-on-and-go makeup is exactly what we need. Enter monochromatic makeup, a technique that calls for one flattering shade for eyes, cheeks, and lips. Not only is color-coordinated makeup having a big moment right now, it’s also incredibly easy: just apply a single shade to your eyes, cheeks, and lips.

In the video tutorial above, NYC-based makeup artist Kirsten Kjaer Weis creates an easy, monochromatic makeup look based on one pretty shade of pink. Kjaer Weis uses Cream Blush from her all-natural makeup line, which we love for its dewy finish and effortlessly blendable texture, but you can use any multipurpose hue in your makeup bag as long as it’s eye- and lip-safe. Check out the video to see Kjaer Weis’s tips and tricks—and then try it yourself.
