2017 is indeed the year of monochromatic looks. If you’re unsure of what exactly monochromatic makeup is, it’s essentially having just one colour shade range across your eyes, cheeks and lips. First, pick a colour of your choice – for example here, the peach shade – Layer the peachy eyeshadows from light to dark, and finally wrap up the look with a peachy coral blush and lipstick. Remember, the rule is to keep the overall look consistently tonal within a single colour scheme.
