7 Rose gold makeup picks that are too pretty to pass up on

Might we say that rose gold has earned its status as this year’s most Insta-trendy colour? This year’s most popular metallic tone has seen a cult following that has spurned everything from diningware to makeup brush sets. If someone on your list is raving fan of anything rose gold, snap up these beauty gifts for this season of giving:

Make Up For Ever’s Lustrous Faves is all about creating a full-on, metallic look with the brand’s Artist Metallic Gloss and Star Lit Powder. Add on a dash of glimmer to the lips with the Artist Metallic Gloss in Pink Champagne, and on your eyes with the shimmery ivory powder that’ll give you a radiant glow.

M.A.C Cosmetics Snow Ball Mini Pigment and Glitter Kit will ensure that you bring a bout of sparkle wherever you go with three fun-sized bottles of rose gold pigments. Whether you’re feeling like champagne gold or coppery pink, this set’s got you covered—plus how cute is that sequin bag with a matching mirror ball on zipper in the same hue?

By Terry Flash Dual Compact Highlighter is made to flatter all skin tones, whether you’ve got fair skin or a golden-bronze complexion. Inspired by the soft, dreamy glow of a candlelight, the compact has an external ring “Nude Soleil” for contouring purposes, while the internal ring is a highlighting brush with pink/apricot undertones. The formula is ultra lightweight and boasts gold, amber and pink pigments for a radiant glow.

One for the lippie lover, Sephora’s Sugarcoated features 10 standout lip glosses in sheer-to-medium finishes that you can mix and match for a variety of looks—wear it alone or layer a few colours together for a nuanced effect. If lip glosses aren’t your thing because of its sticky feeling, these are made for you thanks to its non-sticky, lip-nourishing properties.

In case you can’t get enough of Tarte’s Amazonian Clay eyeshadows, try out the Limited Edition Swamp Queen Eye & Cheek Palette With Brush this season for an extensive range of colours for your eyes and face. Explore nine chic eyeshadow shades such as #SFS (rose gold), Sassy Bun (copper peach) and Uncommon (purple slate) along with a bronzer, blush and highlighter for a photo-worthy look.

Urban Decay Naked3 Eyeshadow Palette is a must-have for any rose-gold loving beauty enthusiast. But what’s even better is the brand’s Office-Party-Approved Sparkle #1 gift set that comes with the eyeshadow palette, Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner in Glamrock and Travel-Size Eyeshadow Primer Potion In Original—all in a Rockstar Bag. Line your eyes with a touch of glitter after applying the eye primer to keep your eye makeup in check all day long. 

Zoeva’s bestselling Luxury Set Vol. 1 now comes in a Rose Golden version, with 12 handcrafted brushes sporting rose-gold toned ferrules and matching matte-black handles. We love how each brush comes with high-quality bristles made of natural and synthetic fibers. The sleek black clutch makes it easy to bring along for your year-end vacay.
