Here's why we're obsessed with rose gold makeup for luxe bridal occasions and sleek everyday looks alike.
What’s as iconic as millennial pink? Rose gold. You’ve seen this trend hit all parts of the market, from wedding rings all the way to iPhones. It’s the perfect luxurious color with a hint of feminine elegance. But if you can’t quite find the excuse to get yourself a new phone just for a change of color, not to worry. Rose gold makeup is a thing, and beauty brands are continuing to churn out new products to celebrate this trend. We’re here to introduce you to the best rose gold makeup to help you achieve that glowing goddess look.
What’s rose gold makeup?
Rose gold itself isn’t just a color, it’s actually a gold-copper alloy that’s often used in jewelry. It’s a gold color that comes with a pink or reddish, hence earning it the name rose gold. The color can be achieved in makeup too, from a mixture of mineral or fruit pigments with mica or gemstones.
When can I wear rose gold makeup?
Practically anytime! We know that rose gold is often associated with bridal looks, and we can definitely see why. Rose gold perfectly complements ivory and golden shades often featured in weddings, and have that perfect hint of luxury that looks great with wedding dresses (and champagne!). Or you can layer it on for a metallic look that’s sure to shine day and night.
We’d like to point out though that rose gold is also an everyday color. Different variations of it work wonders with nude skin tones. Wearing rose gold makeup that’s similar to your natural skin tone can result in a glowy look that complements your natural beauty.
