Friday Faces: Rose gold makeup to brighten up your weekend beat
We may be in the middle of a summer heatwave, but that doesn’t mean we’re putting all our makeup aside for the weekend. Sure, when it’s sticky and humid out, we know it can be hard to imagine slathering on foundation, blush, and concealer. (That’s what BB creams are for.) But may we suggest going for a bold look via rose gold makeup in a few key areas of your face instead? Just go with us here.
Rose gold isn’t just versatile when it comes jewelry, which makes it one of the best ways to brighten up your beauty beat. In fact, rose gold is quickly rising to the top of our list of favorite shades to wear ever, makeup-wise. It looks amazing on every skin tone, and depending on where and how you apply it, it can be totally subtle—think of it like dainty jewelry for your face. What’s not to love about that?
A hint of rose gold in the middle of your eyelid can make eyes appear bigger.
Go for a monochromatic look by using rose gold on your lips, eyes, and cheeks.
