What's Your Colour Code?

If you can’t get enough of one makeup shade, why not take it to the next level? From shocking pink to subtle nudes, play around with a favourite hue on eyes, lips and cheeks with bang-on-trend monochromatic makeup.

Everyone’s talking about matchy-matchy makeup, and we predict that the monochromatic makeup trend is going to be hugethis year.

The key trick of the trend is to always keep the shades within the same family. So just choose your hue, and apply similar colours to the lips, cheeks and eyes to pull the look together. Or even experiment the same product, just applied in different ways depending on where you’re using it

Remember how your mum used to dab her lipstick on your cheeks for a fresh and natural flush? This trend is the modern girl’s version – just don’t limit yourself to lippy or ‘classic’ colours. Pink, red, purple and even gold… there are so many ways to get creative with monochromatic makeup. So why not try using your favourite cream blusher on lips too, or buffing lip gloss into cheeks for a dewy glow

If you’re looking for an excuse to splurge on some new makeup to help you get the look spot on, we hear you. The good news is that lots of brands are one step ahead of the game with products designed with multiple uses in mind – think RMS Beauty’s iconic Lip2Cheek pots and Nars’ The Multiple stick, both faves among makeup artists (and us!) for nailing the monochromatic makeup vibe.

Warm summer shades work great for this look too, so don’t just save the sun-kissed bronze and caramel tones for your complexion – they’re both totally gorgeous on eyes and lips too. So what you waiting for? It’s time to show your true colours!

Create this and any makeup look effortlessly with SPOTLITE HD Ultra Bright True Daylight Makeup Mirror.
