How to Do Rose Gold Makeup How to Do Rose Gold Makeup How to Do Rose Gold Makeup

All that shimmers is gold…or rather rose gold if you’re paying attention to what’s trending in the beauty world right now. If you thought this metallic hue was solely reserved for your jewelry, you’d be sorely mistaken. Rose gold has been trending everywhere lately—and no one can seem to get enough of this unique shade. Chances are you’ve seen someone walking around with rose gold hair—or maybe you’ve even tried the trend yourself. Is switching up your hair color just not your thing? Well, you can still get in on the fun by trying rose gold makeup! It’s hard to find a makeup trend that can suit each and every skin tone, but rose gold is definitely one of them. This super-pretty shade looks great on just about everyone because it has both warm and cool qualities. While you might typically save metallic makeup colors for a girl’s night out or a hot date, you’d be surprised by how versatile rose gold actually is for everyday wear. Yep, this color is perfect for most occasions. Want to get the look? From your lids to your cheekbones, here’s how to go for the rose gold.


Want to ease into wearing rose gold? An easy way to test out the trend is by painting your pout with a rose gold lip color.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips

Use a scrub, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub—which can be used on your face and lips—to slough away any dead skin cells. This step may seem unnecessary, but it can actually help your lipstick go on smoother.

Step 2: Use lip primer

If you don’t want your lipstick to budge halfway through the day, apply a lip primer beforehand.

Step 3: Overline your lips

Want to make your lips look a little bigger? Take a lip liner and line your lips slightly outside of their natural shape. Then, use the lip liner to fill in the outline of your “plumped” lips.

Step 4: Apply lipstick

Ready for the rose gold portion of this look? Apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips Metallic in Moon Lust and you’ll be as good as (rose) gold.


Using a highlighter—especially a rose gold one—can give you a pretty glow. Plus, you’ll positively light up any picture!

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Apply foundation

Using a makeup blender, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, apply the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation over your entire face.

Step 2: Use concealer

Dot the L’Oréal Paris True Match Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer underneath your eyes, extending outwards towards your cheekbones. Then blend out with the pad of your finger.

Step 3: Highlight with concealer

With a concealer that’s a shade or two lighter than your skin tone, highlight your forehead, chin, cupid’s bow, and down the bridge of your nose.

Step 4: Highlight with a powder

You aren’t completely illuminated yet. Follow up the concealer with a highlighting powder. Dust the rose gold shade from the L’Oréal Paris True Match Lumi Glow Nude Highlighter Palette in Moonkissed onto the high points of your face.

Step 5: Contour your face

Highlighting and contouring go together like peanut butter and jelly—hence why you need pair your rose gold highlight with a sculpted visage. Lightly contour your nose, cheekbones, and hairline using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Contour Palette.


One way to really make your eyes stand out? Use a rose gold eye shadow!

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Use eye primer

The same way you use lip primer to make lipstick last, eye primer is a must to keep your shadow in place. A thin layer on your lids should do the trick!

Step 2: Apply eye shadow

Place a rose gold eye shadow, like the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallics Eye Shadow in Rose Chrome, on your lids. Be sure to blend out at the crease to soften the shadow.

Step 3: Coat your lashes

Pump up your lashes (and finish off your look) with a coat of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara.


If you’re bold enough to rock rose gold makeup all over your face—we’ve got you covered.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prime your entire face

Apply a makeup primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer, to your face and an eye shadow base to your lids.

Step 2: Apply foundation

Break out your makeup blender and a foundation with a radiant finish.

Step 3: Apply eye shadow

Using a flat shadow brush, dust on a rose gold pigment (or powder) to your lids and to the inner corners of your eyes. Then, define the crease of your eyelid using a natural brown shadow, like the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Monos Eyeshadow in Matte it Up, with a blending brush.

Step 4: Line your lids

Using the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Brown, line along your lids, extending outwards to create subtle wings.

Step 5: Curl and coat your lashes

Boost your lashes with an eyelash curler before applying a layer or two of the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Washable Mascara.

Step 6: Add blush

Use a blush brush to apply a soft pink shade, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Blush in Baby Blossom, to the apples of your cheeks.

Step 7: Apply a rose gold lip color

Complete your look with a shimmery rose gold lipstick or lip gloss.
