Monochrome Eye Makeup Looks To Try

Creating a monochromatic eye makeup look is quick and easy thanks to the fact that this high-impact look relies on different shades of the same colour! Below are three of my favourite monochrome eye makeup styles to try, with a look to suit every occasion…

  1. Charlotte Darling Easy Eye Palette with six eye-enhancing peach and terracotta eyeshadow shades

    Perfectly Peachy Monochrome Eye Makeup

    If you’re looking for a low-key, neutral monochrome eye makeup look to take you from desk to disco, then look no further than this neutral, peachy look!

    Using my Easy Eye Palette in Charlotte Darling, a six-shade eyeshadow palette blending soft peachy pinks and terracotta brown shades, this versatile monochrome eye makeup look transitions from day to night with ease!

    MAGIC STEP 1: Take my Eye Blender Brush and sweep the shimmering gold champagne PRIME Shade 1 of my Easy Eye Palette over your entire eyelid, applying to the inner corners for a WIDE-AWAKE effect!

    MAGIC STEP 2: Then, use a clean Eye Blender Brush and dip it into the sparkly peach pink ENHANCE Shade 2, creating depth and dimension by blending the colour from the outer corner of your eyes into the centre of your eyelids.

    MAGIC STEP 3: Next, apply the matte peach SMOKE Shade 3 along your top and bottom lash lines using my Eye Smudger Brush, blending into the outer corners and creases for a seamless finish!

    MAGIC STEP 4: Add definition to your peachy eye makeup look by sweeping The Classic eyeliner pencil in Classic Brown along your upper lash line, retracing the line to dial up the intensity.

    MAGIC STEP 5: Follow on with lashings of my Pillow Talk Push Up Lashes! Mascara in berry-brown Dream Pop for a neutral monochromatic eye makeup look with a full-on fluttery effect!
