You can sport rose gold on your wrists, neck, and fingers— and now on your face. Rose gold makeup, usually a warm pink base hue mixed with a dose of gilded shimmer, is the perfect way to impart a stunning Valentine’s Day glow or to keep your skin looking bright and polished every day. A few ways we love to wear it:
- NARS Orgasm Illuminator This peachy shade of pink with subtle gold flecks is simply magic. It gives you a refreshed look— just what you need to wake up your skin during the drab winter months. It's stunning on the cheekbones and lids as a highlighter for a bathed-in-candlelight radiance.
- Bobbi Brown Rose Gold Shimmer Brick Compact This multi-tonal blush lends a beautiful, subtle sheen. It contains shimmer, though, so no additional highlighter is needed: Pair it with black or brown eyeliner and a neutral lip so your flush stands out.
- Tarte Lock & Roll Eyeshadow Duo in Rose Gold This eye-brightening shadow duo contains both a cream and loose powder version of the same hue: The loose powder (with a mess-proof rollerball applicator) keeps the cream in place and prevents creasing. Run it just along the lashline for a pop of light, or from lashline to crease to offset your eye color.
