Kim Kardashian’s flawless beauty looks have earned her millions, rendering her one of our go-to inspirations for makeup. Recently, North West’s mom was seen sporting an insanely gorgeous eye that makes us giddy with anticipation for the warm weather ahead. A subtle shade with tons of potential, consider rose gold your new favorite shade for spring.
While gorgeous, we’ve grown tired of the metallic eyeshadows of yore. Silver and gold are fabulous on jewelry, but they leave much to be desired for every day use on our eyelids. These striking shades can look too severe for day time, and slightly costumey during night. Enter rose gold, the perfect compromise. Light and pretty with an irresistible hint of sheen, this shade meshes well with bronzed beauties and dewey makeup looks. Smokey eyes are among our favorite beauty looks for the spring and summer seasons, but this look can be tough to pull off when given little room for error. Lighter shades like rose gold and bronze make slip-ups less noticeable, giving you free reign to experiment with this sassy style.
So you’ve got your rose gold eyeshadow routine down, which begs the question of what to wear. There are plenty of hot, winter-time garments that will perfectly complement a bold beauty style like this. An uber chic alternative to the sparkly sequined dress, a white pant suit is ideal for making a statement. When accompanied by a fierce statement necklace and a pair of rose gold strappy sandals, this glamorous look is one that will carry through any holiday fete looking effortlessly chic.
We adore metallics for their versatility, but that’s not to say they go with everything. For fall and winter, rose gold and other similar hues are best paired with dark colors and nudes that provide a stunning contrast. Pair a rose gold eye shadow with a stunning light pink/nude hue like Kat Von D’s long-wear lip stain in “Lolita”. When paired with bombshell waves and a tasteful winged eyeliner, this look is one for the books.
