What better way to usher in spring than by changing up your makeup routine? Seriously, it’s the perfect time to try an updated smoky eye and a classic red lip! Where the cooler months of the year are home to dusty gray eye shadow and oxblood lipstick, we’re firm believers that the sunny weather is worthy of warmer hues. While rose gold started out as a hair color trend, it’s now moved over the makeup world—and let us tell you, it looks positively stunning on just about every skin tone. And surprisingly, rose gold eye shadow pairs really well with red lipstick. Who would’ve thought?
Want to learn how to flawlessly pair the season’s hottest rose gold trend with an age old red lip? We’ve got you covered with the how-to. So, grab your makeup bag and get to work!
We will forever love the intensity of a traditional dark smoky eye, but there’s just something oh-so-pretty about rose gold and how it shimmers in the light. Here’s how to embrace the jewelry-inspired look.
Step 1: Start with eye primer. When you’re working with highly pigmented eye shadows, it’s a good idea to use an eye primer first. This can help create an even canvas to apply your eye shadow, and it can also help your eye makeup stay in place.
Step 2: Create your base. Using a flat eye shadow brush, layer your lid with a rose gold eye shadow, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible 24 HR Eye Shadow in Amber Rush.
Step 3: Add depth to your crease. Next, using a soft eye crease brush, gently blend a slightly darker rose gold-accented hue, like the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Pain Au Chocolat, into the crease of your eye, working your way in from the outermost corner. Be sure to fully blend this new layer of color into your base in order to avoid any harsh lines of demarcation.
Step 4: Highlight your brow bone. To complete your shadowed look, dip your blending brush into an almost-white eyeshadow—like the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Eyeshadow in Paris Beach—and swipe it underneath the tail end of your brows to help mimic the way light would naturally make your bone structure pop.
Step 5: Finish with a cat eye. To complete your gorgeous statement eye, top it off with a quick swipe of black liquid eyeliner, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party, along your upper lash line.
Now that your eye look is down pat, it’s time to complement it with a pretty red pout. Here’s the thing about classic red lips: Whether they’re paired with jeans and a T-shirt or an evening gown, the effect is all the same—pretty and polished. To perfect a bright red lip, follow the steps below.
Step 1: Exfoliate your lips. Before swiping on your lippy, slough off any dead skin cells that might be on the surface of your lips with a lip scrub.
Step 2: Line your lips. When you’re working with a highly pigmented lipstick, using a lip liner first can help prevent your color from feathering—plus, it can add definition to your pout. Use one in a shade that matches your lips. Try the L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche Lip Liner.
Step 3: Apply your lipstick. Using the red lipstick of your choice—such as the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lip in DIY Red—fill in your lips starting at your cupid’s bow and working your way out to the corners.
Step 4: Use foundation to clean the edges. Working with super-bright lipstick can be a little intimidating. The good news is that a little swipe of concealer can help fix any lip mishap and just make your lips look a bit more refined in general. All you have to do is dip an angled brush into the concealer of your choice and tightline around your lips.
