Monochrome makeup with Kat Von D's new Lolita eyeshadow & blush

Fans of Kat Von D's iconic lipstick Lolita are going crazy over the new eyeshadow/ blush duo. It's already sold out on and with reason. The chestnut rose colour is equally as flattering on the eyes as it is on the lips.

For a bit of depth and colour to the face, just add a bit of Lolita to the cheeks and finish the look with a swipe of Lolita lipstick and your monochromatic makeup is ready.

Prime the eyelids using your favourite primer and apply some of your favourite lip balm to the lips. Adding lipbalm in the start of your makeup routine will not only hydrate the lips but will also keep your lipstick from drying out and lasting longer. 

Now start with the eyes and sweep Lolita shadow on the eyelids and bring it up the crease. Blend with a clean fluffy brush until there are no harsh lines. 

Sweep a gold shadow on the lower lash line. I used a gold shimmer lipgloss from Bite Beauty's holiday 2016 collection.

Now add a winged line for some drama. Curl your lashes and coat them with your favourite mascara. 

I added three individual lashes to my lower lash line and flipped the curl outward for a more dramatic effect.

Now Sweep some Lolita blush on the your cheeks, focusing on the hallows of the cheeks blending upwards to the temple. Normally I wouldn't do this but I really wanted to emphasis the colour and celebrate the Lolita shade.

Finally, line the lips using the Lolita Everlasting lip liner. Fill them in using the Lolita Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita. Once that dries, apply the Lolita Studded Kiss Lipstick to your entire lips. It might seem excessive but layering your lipsticks will give you a longer lasting lip and the lipstick will add moisture. 

Lolita looks so beautiful on the eyes because it's a brown-based pink shade that's universally flattering.
I wanted to break up the monochrome look a little bit by adding a gold gloss to the lower lashline. I used a lipgloss from Bite Beauty's holiday 2016 collection but any gold eyeshadow will do.
