This Week In Beauty: MONOCHROME.

Hello, Beauties!

Last week I had a MOMENT. A MOMENT, for me, means that I have a feeling of excitement, mixed with inspiration, part epiphany, and equal parts creativity, along with the urge to do my makeup ASAP. And that MOMENT was inspired by MAC’s MONOCHROME Line! Particularly, the Velvet Teddy shades. As you know, Velvet Teddy is a CLASSIC from MAC, which is one of the muted mauve nude shades, that kicked off the now, CLASSIC, Nude Lip Trend.

So what?



Think again!

MAC’s Monochrome- Velvet Teddy Line doesn’t just include the Classic Matte Velvet Teddy Lipstick! It includes a *BRAND NEW* LipGlass, in Best Teddy, a Powder Blush (Satin) in shade Sur, a Glitter in shade Bright Bronze, an Eyeshadow (Frost) in Dear Teddy, and an Eyeshadow (Matte) in Soft Teddy!! And guess what?? THEY ARE ALL SHADES OF VELVET TEDDY! And I’m SOOOOO IN LOVE!!!

And here’s the BEST PART– MAC also released FIVE other shades of MONOCHROME products, (Diva, Heroine, Candy Yum Yum, See Sheer, & Ruby Woo, as well as their matching products) so you can match your eyes, lips, cheeks, and that pretty little face of yours, to your heart’s delight! I think I just died and went to MONOCHROME Heaven!

Monochrome is all about pure, pigmented, and gorgeous color, that match to a T. And having the same shade, but different finishes of the shade, ties together your makeup look, and tops it with a a pretty, little, perfectly-knotted bow. And I know that we’ve ALL heard Beauty Buff’s in the past preach about NEVER matching your Lip & Eye Color to the exact- but that’s a thing of the past! And with all of the BOLD, BRIGHT, and frankly, unnatural Beauty Trends that have been trending these past few months, Monochrome will look perfectly poised, compared to the Bright Greens, Turquoise’s, and Blues’ that have been hitting the Beauty Scene as of late (not that BOLD and BRIGHT is a bad thing).

So if you’re into the more natural and toned down makeup look, then Monochrome is your ticket to trying a BOLDER trend, but with natural hues, like Monochrome Velvet Teddy and Monochrome See Sheer. And if you’re all about BOLD and BRIGHT, then Monochrome Candy Yum Yum and Heroine, is your ticket to up your color game! Missing the hues of Ruby and Burgundy Eyeshadows?? NOT ANYMORE! Because Monochrome Ruby Woo and Monochrome Diva, have you covered! Ruby Woo’s, Holly Folly Eyeshadow (Frost) and Monochrome Diva’s, Dare To Diva Eyeshadow (Frost), is your new BFF.




I hope that you’re as excited as I am! Because seriously, all of these product collages are absolutely GORGEOUS. And with the MONOCHROME trend, you don’t have to worry about matching certain shades of eyeshadows and blushes, to certain shades of lipstick, etc. Because MONOCHROME is all about pure, pigmented, and gorgeous color, that go hand in hand, and match perfectly!


Have A Fab & Fresh Day, Beauties!
