Being too matchy-matchy might be regarded as a fashion faux pas, but when it comes to makeup, keeping the colors consistent across your face creates a subtly stunning look. A matching lip and cheek combination, or a monochromatic face, is a makeup artist favorite that can be flattering on everyone and is super simple to create—especially with the plethora of new products out there made specifically to craft this flattering look.“Monochromatic makeup can be very pretty—it creates a soft, harmonious face that really lets ‘you’ shine through,” says Romy Soleimani, Beauty.com Beauty Director at Large. It can also cut your prep time in half, since you can use one product multiple places, regardless of its primary function.This look is also flexible and easy to personalize. “It can be strong, or it doesn’t have to be. It can be in color, or it can be done in neutral,” says makeup artist Sonia Kashuk. Pinks, corals, nudes, and even bronze, all work as color schemes. You can also play up seasonal color trends with this type of look, Kashuk says. For instance, try a coral lipstick paired with coral blush for spring/summer, and sweep the blush lightly over your eyelids for a matching wash of color.
