If you have a lighter complexion, it can be difficult to find eyeshadow shades that aren’t too dark or jarring, especially for daytime use. Luckily, a new celebrity trend has shown that there is a soft hue that would work perfectly: rose gold.
Stars like Elizabeth Olsen and Zooey Deschanel have been seen wearing rose gold shadow, which is a shimmery mauve that works with pretty much any outfit. Glamour Magazine’s beauty blog warns that if you have olive skin tones or dark circles under your eyes, you should probably steer clear, as pinkish shades can make you look sickly.
However, if you have a pale or dark complexion, rose gold is worth trying out. Pick up a shadow like Jane Iredale – PurePressed Eye Shadow in Supernova and swipe it all over your lids, going up a bit past your creases. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, a hint of gold shimmer like Bare Escentuals – Glimmer Eye Shadow in Desire on the inner corners of your eyes would complete the look.
