How to Master Vogue’s Iconic Monochromatic Makeup

Looking to change up your smoky eye routine? Reset your skillset and embrace monochromatic hues with the latest The Beauty Cut x Vogue Australia Masterclass Series with Makeup Artist Filomena Natoli and beauty guru, Eleanor Pendleton.

“It’s really important your skin is glowing in the right areas, so you always want the high points to be capturing the light.

One of the biggest beauty trends in 2021, monochromatic makeup is the no-makeup makeup refresh we need. Built on luminous skin, it’s the practice of taking a tone and using it as the basis for your whole look. When it comes to building the base, Filomena and Eleanor look to Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk mixed with a touch of Lancôme’s Génifique Youth Activating Concentrate to help diffuse the coverage and add luminosity – a beauty hack you won’t believe you lived without.

Before moving to her colour quad, Filomena likes to set shine-prone spots with Givenchy’s Prisme Libre Loose powder, using the translucent tone to set between the brows, the sides of the nose, upper lip and down the sides of your face. For the finishing touch, Filomena loves Tom Ford’s Eye Color Quad in Burnished Amber. Matching perfectly with a bitten lip colour, the pinkish bronze adds a desired definition to the eyes while adding dimension when gently placed to the centre of the lip.
