rose gold inspired makeup look

Inspiration can come from anywhere. Sometimes, it is a season, a colour, or an outfit. On a recent night out? It was a rediscovered product, the Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art in Peach Prism. (That's right, I said rediscovered product. I have been digging through my makeup collection to use things I already own.) The moment I saw it, I knew. It was the perfect source of inspiration. On one end there is a gorgeous rose gold cream shadow and on the other there is a sparkly peach liner. I chose to pair these items with my beloved Urban Decay Naked 3 eyeshadow palette to create a romantic and rosy makeup look.

Products Used: Revlon PhotoReady Eye Art in Peach Prism, Urban Decay Naked 3, Flower Beauty Black Eyeliner, Cover Girl The Super Sizer mascara, Annabelle bronzer, Benefit Posetint Balm. 

How I Created The Look: 

  • I started by following my normal foundation routine. I used the Maybelline Better Skin foundation (a newer addition to my collection...full review to come!) and concealer and finished it all off with my Cover Girl pressed powder. Then I filled in my brows using my Bonne Bell eyebrow pencil. I wanted everything to be super natural. That meant a super lightweight products and a subtle contour using my Annabelle bronzer.
  • The focus of this makeup look was definitely the eyes. They needed to be warm but dramatic. First, I used the Revlon cream shadow as a base. Then it was time to add a little intensity with the Naked 3 palette. I applied Trick to the centre of the eyelid and blended Liar into the crease. That was buffed out using Nooner and Strange was used on the inner corner and underneath the brow bone.
  • Next up was the eyeliner. I used my Flower Beauty liner to create a dramatic winged out look, added on my Cover Girl mascara, and finished off the eyes with a hint of the Revlon sparkle liner underneath the lash line. With a bit of bronzer on the cheeks and my PoseTint Balm on the was the perfect blend of subtle and dramatic. Rose gold is great that way! 

Rose gold has definitely been a favourite lately. Which is why my Naked 3 palette is never far from reach. Searching for a little inspiration of your own? Start with your makeup collection. Just a quick look around can spark the perfect idea. Before long, you will feel gorgeous, confident, and ready to take on the world. 

What do you think of this makeup look? What inspires you?
