As the name suggests, monochromatic makeup focus on using one color to create a full face look. Most often, the monochromatic makeup technique is used to achieve a natural-looking visage that's truly put together. Colors that typically fall into this category include nude, pink and brown. When you coordinate these colors across your eyes, cheeks and lips, the result is a simple, polished look that allows you to put your best face forward without distracting from your natural beauty.
