Rose gold beauty trend

Favourites 27

From dreamy interiors to delicate jewellery collections, it’s safe to say we’ve been obsessed with rose gold for a while – and now the trend has transitioned to our make-up bags, too. The perfect blend of warm pink and shimmering gold, this feminine hue is far more wearable than you’d think – and perfect for AW16.

Wondering whether it will suit you? Here, we ask our beauty experts for the lowdown, and select our edit of the most tempting cosmetics to try.

Who does rose gold suit?

“If you’re partial to a nude eye or lip, then rose gold could be the next make-up colour for you. Perfect for all skin tones, it offers flattering warmth that works all year round. I love using it in the colder months as the metallic element lifts the skin tone in harsh winter light.” – Justine Jenkins, celebrity make-up artist

How should I wear it?

“It’s a universally flattering colour, and so easy to wear, hence its popularity. But if you’re very fair, stay away from rose-gold tones for the eyes, as it can make them look a little sore. Switch to a lipstick instead for a flattering mid-season glow. Skin radiance products with rose-gold tones are also especially beautiful on warmer or darker skin tones.” – Grace Fodor, make-up artist and founder of cult beauty brand Studio10

What are the best rose-gold products to try?

“For eyes, I love Nude by Nature’s Shimmering Loose Eyeshadow in Rose Sand but rose gold also works wonders on your skin and nails. Try Becca’s Shimmering Skin Perfector in Rose Gold on the tops of your cheekbones and the décolleté, and don’t forget to complete the look with two coats of NARS polish in Pastorale.” – Justine Jenkins
