Rose gold makeup has been popping up on red carpets and runways throughout the fall season and it’s easy to see why. The hue is super flattering and offers a new take on beauty that gives you a hint of tint without looking too made up. If you want to take the trend for a spin this holiday season, follow along with these expert tips to get glitzy.
One Shade Suits All
Reason number one why we can’t get enough of rose gold: it looks great on all skin tones. “Rose gold doesn’t fit in a warm or cool box, so anyone can find a shade that works for their skin tone,” says Toronto makeup artist Amy Harper. “A rose gold blush on a fair skin tone is stunning, as is a rosy highlight on a darker skin tone.”
Switch it Up
Good news: There’s no right or wrong way to wear the rosy hue. Try swapping out your black eyeliner for rose gold. Reach for an easy-to-blend pencil or a fine-tipped liquid to paint on a precise cat eye for a dash of sparkle.
The key to having your rose gold look go the distance is careful skin preparation. After cleansing and hydrating, Amy Harper recommends applying a primer suited to your skin type before your makeup and having a lightweight translucent powder on hand to control shine. Finish by spritzing with a setting spray, and you’re all set.
