Orange Monochromatic Makeup | Tutorial

by - 1:30 PM

Hi Dolls and Gents,

So, in my last post, I told that I will be sharing the look I created when I used those products for the first time. Well, here it is!

I wanted to do a monochromatic look today because I saw it trending on the Sephora page and I was that would be cool if I could do a look with one colour. I looked through my collection and I notice I have a lot of oranges, so that is the colour we are going to using. I used the Morphe 35OM and MUG single eyeshadow in Sin City for the first time on my blog. I am excited and happy with how the look came out. I don't if I wear this out, maybe if I change the lip colour, I don't know. If you like to see this tutorial, just keep in scrolling down. 


  1. Prime your face. I used the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer all over my face
  2. Fill your eyebrows. I filled in brows with the NYX Micro Brow Pencil in Espresso and cleaned it up with my L.A. Girl Pro Conceal in Toast with RT Detailer Brush.
  3. Apply foundation. I applied NYX Stay Matte but not Flat in Deep Dark mixed with Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Water Foundation in Rich Sand and MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NW50 and blending it out with my RT Buffing Brush. Foundation was too dark for my skin :(
  4. Apply concealer under eyes, forehead, cupid's bow, bridge of the nose and under hollow cheeks. I applied L.A. Girl Pro Conceal in Toast to face to help lighten up my foundation and blended it out with my RT Buffing Brush.
  5. Set cream highlight. I set my eyes, bridge of nose, forehead, and under contour with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder and Maybelline Fit Me Powder in 325 Cream Beige.
  6. Set entire face. I set half of my face with Black Opal True Colour Finishing Powder in Deep and the other half with the Ruby Kisses Setting Powder in Rich using my Jessup Large Powder. 
  7.  Set face with setting spray. I used the NYX Matte Setting Spray
  8. Prime eyelids and set. I prime my eyelids with Essence I love Stage primer and set with Laura Mercier Translucent Powder.
  9. Using a warm neutral palette, Morphe 35O Matte. I applied the light warm orange (2nd row, 7th colour) as transition colour using my BH Cosmetics Brush #6. I applied a lot above the crease.
  10.  I, then went into the bright orange (1st row, 7th colour) as my crease colour and applied it below my transition colour with the Jessup Small Tapered Blending Brush and brush some of the bright orange on the lid. 
  11. I deepen my crease colour with a deep brick orange ( 5th row, 7th colour ) with my Jessup Short Shader brush and defined my crease.
  12.  For my lid colour, I used Makeup Geek Single Eyeshadow in Sin City on an e.l.f professional eyeshadow brush. 
  13. Blend and Deepen. I blended everything out and reapply colour where it was needed. 
  14. Bronzing. I bronzed up my skin using my Ruby Kisses Mineral Pressed Powder in Cognac to warm up my skin, since my foundation was too dark using the Jessup Blush Brush. 
  15. Contour and Highlight. I contour my face using Makeup Geek Contour Powder in Scandal with my RT Contour brush. I highlighted my face with my Ruby Kisses All Bronzing Powder in Bronze Glow with Jessup Small Tapered Blending Brush.
  16. Blush. I used the bright orange eyeshadow from Morphe 35OM (2nd row, 7th colour) on my Jessup Blush Brush. 
  17. Lips. I lined my lips with the NYX Suede Matte Lip liner in Club Hopper and applied the NYX Suede Lipstick in Orange County. I also applied NYX Pro Lip Cream Palette (The Reds) on top in shade #4 and top it off with a bit of the NYX Butter Gloss in Gingersnap.
This is the complete look (excuse the photos, they have an orange tint to them)

I hope you enjoyed this monochromatic makeup tutorial. It is fun to create, maybe I will do another monochromatic tutorial. I will see you guys in my post.
