From your jewelry to your iPhone, rose gold is everywhere. This summer, you can warm up your makeup look with this trendy hue, too. Slightly metallic and subtly flushed, rose gold makeup gives your skin a soft, romantic glow that’s great for a day at the boardwalk or a night out on the town. Try any of these three tricks alone or together for the perfect rose gold makeup look.
The eyes are often the first place people look when they see you, so make that first impression count. While we love a good smoky eye, this sweet shade will accentuate your eyes in an understated way. It creates a soft glow, but still has just enough shimmer to catch the light.
Get the look: Sweep jane iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow in Rose Gold across your eyes, concentrating the color on the lid and blending upward. This eyeshadow can easily pair with your favorite eyeliner (we love brown liner for this look!) and mascara.
Pro tip: For a little extra staying power, apply an eyeshadow primer beforehand.
Another reason we love this summer makeup trend is because it gives your skin a beautiful flush! No matter how you’re spending your summer, rose gold blush can always give your complexion that post-vacation glow. Dusting your cheeks with this floral favorite also draws the eye to your cheekbones, acting as a blush and a highlighter in one.
Get the look: With a light hand, dust theBalm Hot Mama Shadow & Blush All-in-One along the tops of your cheekbones. This pinky-peach hue can also double as an eyeshadow! Top this look off with a bold brow courtesy of your favorite eyebrow pen.
Pro tip: For a subtle color, choose a fan brush, or pick a classic blush brush for more pigment.
Rose gold is also the perfect shade to accentuate your favorite feature—your smile! Its neutral tone makes rose gold excellent to wear alone or over your favorite lip colors. While a touch of shimmer will give your lips a fuller appearance, try to avoid anything too metallic as this will draw attention to any lines or other imperfections on your lips.
Get the look: Apply glo minerals Gloss in Rose Gold directly from the tube, or use a lip brush for more precision. This shimmery, pale rose shade will play up your pearly whites. You can also highlight your Cupid’s bow with a rose gold eyeshadow to make your smile stand out even more.
Pro tip: Using bronzer to give your skin a sun-kissed glow will make this rosy gloss really pop.
