Sunset-Themed Monochromatic Look
The monochromatic look is achieved by using the same pop of colour on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. This easy and natural look is perfect for monolids because the specks of colour don't look overdone on the eyes and don't outshine the colour on cheeks and lips.
In this eye-brightening sunset makeup tutorial, YouTube beauty guru Raeview applies a glittery white shadow all over the lid to set a highlighting canvas. Next, she dusts a mauve hue on top and blends it evenly to create chiaroscuro (the Italian technique of making contrast with light and dark shades). This trick creates depth to highlight the brighter colours and contours the monolid.
To create the illusion of a strongly defined crease, she uses a tawny-red colour as a contour and layers brown liquid liner on top. By connecting the cat eye on top with light strokes on the lower lash line, she defines her eyes and accentuates their delicate almond shape. To finish off the look, she applies mascara, but you can choose to wear fake lashes to open up the eyes more.
