Monochrome makeup is one of our favorite makeup trends for a few reasons. For starters, it takes the guesswork out of matching your eyeshadow to your lip color. It’s also incredibly chic and an easy way to wear trendy shades all over. You can also try this trend no matter your skill level or the occasion. Rock an all-brown look for everyday or lavender all over on a day you’re feeling experimental (contour included!).
