A few weeks ago I talked about lightening up…and this monochromatic look takes that idea literally. It’s basically just one color – rose gold – all over the face, but the layering gives it depth, and the liner (which you can skip for a more natural effect) breaks it up.
Skin: This look meant to be breezy and fresh, so try to keep the foundation to a minimum: just a little concealer to hide any redness at the outer corners of the eyes, at the corners of the mouth, and around the nose, and then some powder to cut shine. Next, sweep a light bronzer across your forehead, the bridge of your nose, and chin, and add a dusting of rosy blush to your cheeks.
Eyes: Start with a layer of pale pink shadow with a little shimmer all over the lid and up to the browbone; this opens up your eyes and makes you look more wide-awake. Next, layer on some darker rose-gold shadow in the crease (this shadow duo contains both of the colors that you’ll need), making sure to blend well.
Sweep on some liquid liner, and finish with a few coats of black mascara.
Lips: Apply a pinky-nude shade like Lipstick Queen Sinner in Pinky Nude (shown here).
(Gold glitter nailpolish – that’s a gel polish, but Bobbi Brown Solid Gold is similar – is a nice finishing touch.)
