Striking it big with rose gold makeup

Rose gold has officially gone from a mere trend to a full-blown obsession. From watches to wedding rings, this pinkish metal has the same glam factor as regular yellow gold, but with a much warmer, more feminine feel.

Now, the hue is making its way into makeup as well. If you're eager to try the shimmering shade yourself, use the same techniques you would for any other metallic accents, or follow these tips for a bolder look that's on-trend and totally irresistible.

Eyes
Rose gold can do wonders for your peepers when incorporated in the right way. Allure magazine explained that while you might consider it a flashy shade, the color can actually work as a neutral base. Just dust a thin layer of a rose gold eyeshadow onto your lids, swipe on black liquid liner and mascara and you have an instantly understated yet alluring look. Or, if you're daring enough to go for something more dramatic, feel free to layer on more pigment and blend with a black shadow that has gold sheen to create a stunning smoky eye. You could even use a rose gold mascara – when you bat your lashes, the shimmer will catch the light in a striking way.

Lips
Don't shy away from rose gold on your lips – the color can give your pucker an unusual luminosity. Keep your makeup natural with just a sweep of espresso-colored eyeliner and mascara to let the lip color really shine. Pale rose shades with just a faint golden iridescence look best on fair complexions, while darker skin tones look striking with a richer rose-tinted bronze.

Cheeks
One of the best aspects of rose gold face makeup is that it works as both a blush and a bronzer in one. Allure noted that it can be worn year round, enhancing your tan in the summer and giving you a boost of radiance when you need it most in the winter. Plus, the shade is flattering on nearly any skin tone. Try applying a pop of shimmer on the cheekbones to highlight them with a gorgeous glow.

Nails
You've likely been rocking a gold shimmer on your nails for quite some time, but rose gold offers a romantic twist. Lacquers in this hue look something like a bottle of pink champagne, and are effortlessly elegant for an evening affair, but just as appropriate with a T-shirt and jeans.
