Colour coordination has emerged as one of 2020’s biggest beauty trends. Here’s how celebrities have nailed it.

At the beginning of the 2000s, being matchy-matchy was considered “uncool” (we still did it anyway), but now, monochromatic beauty has emerged as one of this year’s biggest trends so far. Case in point: Jennifer Lopez’s recent eyeshadow and nails look.

Manicurist Tom Bachik shared a picture of the pretty lavender shade he painted onto the Hustler actor’s nails. To compliment his handiwork, Lopez’s make-up artist Scoot Barnes swept purple eyeshadow over her eyelids. 

We’ve been seeing more celebrities wearing the trend, by matching their eyeshadow to their outfits. The beauty of monochromatic make-up is that there are no rules. You can go as bright, dark, bold or as neutral as you like. The key is keeping the shades as close to the colours in your clothing as possible.

One of our favourite red carpet examples of this was Lucy Hale at the Critic’s Choice Awards earlier in the year. Hale’s make-up artist Kelsey Deeniham matched the actor’s make-up to her mint dress by applying green to the inner corners of her eyes.

The inspiration doesn’t stop there. Here are some of our favourite cases where celebrities matched their eyeshadow to their outfits – and nailed it…

  • Zendaya

  • Billy Porter

  • Kathryn Newton

  • Nina Dobrev

  • Lizzo

  • Sadie Sink

  • Saorise Ronan

  • Chrissy Teigein
