THE words “sum­mer make-up” might bring to mind im­ages of colour­ful lip­sticks and mis­matched pas­tel shades, but sev­eral high-pro­file beauty stars have been buck­ing the trend of late with an edgier mono­chrome look. Mono­chrome make-up, which in­volves wear­ing sim­i­lar colours on the eyes, lips and cheeks, is sur­pris­ingly well suited to sum­mer, as it works bril­liantly with neu­trals of all va­ri­eties – es­pe­cially those with bronze, pink, or or­ange un­der­tones.

For proof of this, look no fur­ther than Olivia Munn, Emily Rata­jkowski and Kylie Jen­ner, who have all been snapped on the red car­pet re­cently rock­ing a pol­ished, matchy-matchy look. Ac­cord­ing to L'Oreal Paris celebrity make-up artist Sir John, the best way to keep

your look on the

right side of the 1990s is to play around with tex­ture. He says, “I love to cre­ate a va­ri­ety of tex­tures with thin a look, so I opt for matte shad­ows on the eyes, nude matte lips and then bronzed, glow­ing skin to cre­ate con­trast.” Sum­mery mono­chrome make up shouldn't be too heavy handed, so it is im­por­tant that the skin is at its healthy best. Nude tones are a fan­tas­tic way of draw­ing at­ten­tion to a sunkissed glow, but ap­ply mois­turiser any­way to keep the com­plex­ion dewy.

If you are opt­ing for a dusky pink mono­chrome look like Olivia Munn, then try dab­bing a lit­tle tinted mois­turiser such as L'Oreal Paris Age Per­fect Rosy Tone Mois­tur­izer on the cheeks for an Ex­tra boost of colour. A quick sweep of high­lighter in your cho­sen shade, run along the cheek bones and cupid's brow, will il­lu­mi­nate your fea­tures. Con­trast all this shim­mer with a matte eye­shadow in pow­der for­mula. L’Oreal Paris Colour Riche Mono Matte Eye­shad­ows come in sev­eral nude tones that flat­ter all skin tones. Sir John rec­om­mends con­tin­u­ing the matte theme when it comes to the lips, us­ing a liq­uid lip­stick like the L’Oreal Paris In­fal­li­ble Lip Paint Matte to keep the look vel­vety.
