Rihanna brown outfit at NYFW 2018

How to Get the Monochromatic Look for FW18/19

Check out four look books in monochrome orange, pink, yellow and brown. The trend is here in time for fall, winter and resort seasons.

This autumn warm tones are trending on social media. MUA’s are creating all sorts of looks with orange, pink and even red eyeshadow. The trend is spreading like wildfire. Just last NYFW, Rihanna wore an all-brown outfit to the Fenty Beauty event to promote Lip Stunna Paint.

Monochromatic means all in one color. To get the monochrome look wear clothes, shoes and accessories that are all the same color. Even makeup should be in the same color family.
