Rose Gold Makeup Ideas for Your Eyes, Lips, and Face.
If an eye shadow palette launches and it doesn’t include at least one rose-gold shade, does it even exist? This is the question I’m asking myself a lot lately. Beauty brands like Huda Beauty, Anastasia Beverly Hills, E.LF., and Morphe have brought a plethora of palettes packed with rose-gold shades and complementary shadows into our lives. Honestly, it’s overwhelming. Luckily, makeup artists on Instagram have shown us a myriad of gorgeous ways to makes the best use of all those rose-gold shadows and other makeup in the trendy hue. I rounded up some of my favorite looks to help inspire and guide you to the ultimate rose-gold makeup look.
Take cues from British makeup artist Bethan West for a simultaneously demure but bold eye makeup. For her negative space creation, West began by creating a winged shape with rose-gold shadow. Then, she brushed the same shade in the area between her arches and her creases, as well as along her lower lash lines. To make the negative space area crisper, you can run a small lip brush with concealer on it along the edges.
With a subtle rose-gold shadow and a couple coats of mascara, celebrity makeup artist Hung Vanngo kept Kate Bosworth’s eye makeup light and ethereal to let her brick red lips take center stage.
After adding rose-gold and burgundy shadows to her lids from horizontal brushstroke-like lines and dots with a black liquid liner like Kat Von D’s Tattoo Liner. She brightened up the graphic liner look by highlighting the inner corners of her eyes with a champagne shadow. On her lips, went more subtle with Colour pop’s.
You can watch how created these stunning rose-gold cut creases here. Spoiler alert: You’ll need Colour pop’s Dream St. Pressed Powder Shadow Palette recommends spritzing your brush with setting spray before dipping into the shadow.
Before heading to a Golden Globes after party, celebrity makeup artist Vincent Oquendo rimmed Halston Sage’s lower lashlines with a glitzy rose-gold shadow. But that’s not all. The metallic under liner was paired with gold winged liner, dewy and peachy pink lipstick.
Smoky eyes are always a good option. With a bit of rose-gold glitter, the classic look gets a glitzy upgrade. In German makeup artist Natal Miguel’s case, she pat Face and Body Glitter in Rose onto the center of her lids.
Yellow and rose gold weirdly work together in harmony. Mei Pang showed us exactly how they do by designating one eye with each color. For her yellow eye, Pang brushed Make Up For Ever’s Artist Color Shadow in Mimosa all over her lid and tapped Stila’s Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Kitten Karma below her creases. The pink-hued eye was made up of the Artist Color Shadow in English Pink and the Glitter & Glow in Rose Gold Retro. Then, she etched on sharp wing.
Inner Corner Liner
Not confident in your cat-eye skills? Try accentuating the inner corners of your eyes with a black liner instead, and let your rose-gold shadow shine on its own on the outer corners of your eyes like New York-based makeup artis.
