Monochromatic makeup is a tricky trend to nail down, so our “Monochrome Moment” series is here to ease all of your one-color woes. Up this month: rose gold makeup.
In the age of Instagram, rose gold has made a splash on beauty blogger pages everywhere: It seems to be the new, mod metallic that’s giving silver and gold a run for their money. First, we spotted beautiful rose gold perfume bottles. Then, it was rose gold eye shadow, lipstick and more. Fortunately, rose gold is warm and flattering on most skin tones, and it certainly lends itself to a super pretty monochromatic look.
Here, we’ve rounded up our favorite rose gold makeup and nail picks, and as usual, we challenge you to wear them not only separately but together!
NYX always seems to get metal lip creams right, and this rose gold version is no different. This product is highly pigmented and super buildable – perfect if you’re in search for an out-of-the box metallic lip for your next evening out.
The Urban Decay Naked palettes will always be our holy grail(s) of eyeshadow – but Naked 3 takes the cake for the perfect pinky-gold tones. We recommend a swipe of Dust on your lids, with Burnout blended into the crease for a subtle, yet powerful rose gold eye.
