In the spirit of the new year and trying new things, why not shake up your makeup routine a little? A monochromatic palette can be very whimsical and unifies your look. Depending on your coloring and the occasion in question, you could try a bolder look of plum or burgundy. For a softer look, try working in natural tones such as browns, pinks or peaches. Lily Collins does it very well; eyes, blush and lips can all be in the same tone, or the blush can be in different but flattering shade.

Prep the skin as usual by cleansing and moisturizing.

After priming the eyelids, sweep a mid-tone peach shade in the crease. Apply a shimmery peach or rose gold on the lid. To add some depth and definition, apply a brown or black liner along the top and bottom lashes and smudge lightly to soften. Highlight the tear duct with a light shimmer. Finish off the eyes with several coats of mascara. Clean up under the eyes with a makeup wipe or remover.

For bolder brows, fill and shape them in with pencil or powder.

Apply a sheer luminous foundation with a Beauty Blender or kabuki brush. Use your favourite concealer under the eyes. Brush a soft blush across the cheeks starting at the outer corner of the eye and blending outwards.

For the lips, use a nice peach gloss or frosted lipstick.
