Is there anything as pretty as rose gold? We were thrilled when this colour hit the makeup scene a couple of years back, and we’re just as thrilled that it’s here to stay.
Rose gold makeup has become a classic that looks good on just about everyone. Whether you want a light shimmer of gold dust or like to wear your eye shadow dark and smoky, there’s a metallicpalette to suit your style. Here are our favourites:
Maybelline The Burgundy Bar Eyeshadow Palette
Something that we love about Maybelline eyeshadow palettes is their versatility. The palette contains 12 shades that can be worn in a variety of combinations - from smoky dark, to light and sparkly. All shades are perfectly matched to each other, with undertones of shimmery gold and burgundy rose.
NYX Professional Makeup Love You So Mochi Eyeshadow Palette
It’s the texture of this palette that makes it so remarkable - but we’re a huge fan of the colours too. Each eyeshadow feels like a gummy marshmallow to the touch, and the creamy, highly pigmented colour glides on like a dream. The neutral palette combines 10 matte and shimmery shades, all with peachy gold undertones, and also includes a charcoal shade for dark smoky eyes.
Urban Decay Sin Afterglow Highlighter Palette 8-Hour Highlighter + Blush
We really like makeup that can double up for different areas of the face, so in our eyes, this one’s a winner. This combination of blush and highlighters in peachy pink shades with gold undertones is just perfect. The powder has been exceptionally finely milled, giving it an ultra smooth texture for super application and a subtle shimmer. You can use it as blush, highlighter, and eyeshadow too.
Lancôme Ombre Hypnôse Palette in ST3
This small, handbag-sized rose gold eyeshadow palette is everything you need. There are 5 shades ranging from charcoal to shimmery peach. The colour is silky and buildable when applied dry, or you can apply it wet for a more intense, creamier hue. The palette includes both a sponge and brush applicator cleverly concealed in the case.
