And It Was All (Rose) Gold Eyeshadow

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when someone says wedding eye makeup? Shimmery gold eyes? Sure, gold looks great on Indian skin, but conventional wedding eye makeup is not subtle. The fact is that gold tends to draw all the attention, and it can sometimes overpower your outfit.

But over the years we’ve discovered a subtle expression of gold -- rose gold. A rich and sophisticated colour that has managed to find its place on our social media feeds, and in our hearts. From iPhones to cutlery and even clothing, everything looks better when it comes in a rosé edition. The colour is the perfect blend of warm and cool tones, which makes it universally appealing. It’s no surprise then that rose gold is one of the hottest eye makeup trends today!

It looks great on every skin tone and compliments almost every outfit. A sheer wash of rose gold eyeshadow paired with dewy skin has an almost angelic appeal. It’s also very versatile, which means you can wear it for a dreamy daytime look, and a sultry night one.

Probably one of social media’s favourite hues, because of its sheer sophistication, rose gold definitely has everyone’s seal of approval.

 

Here’s an easy rose gold eyeshadow look for the day, and night:

- Using the Lakmé 9to5 Eye Quartet in Silk Route, sweep the dull gold eyeshadow all over your lid.

- Take the dark pink shade from the palette on a small eyeshadow brush and blend it into the outer corner of the eye to intensify the colour.

- Now, use the brown shade from the palette and smoke out the outer corners. Apply the same colour on your lower lash line to complete the smoky look.

- Use your finger to add the tiniest bit of rose gold to the centre of your lids. Just spritz your hand with some setting spray or rose water to pick up the maximum product.

- Finally, use the same rose gold eyeshadow to highlight the inner corners of your eyes. This small step will make all the difference.

- Finish off the look with a generous coat of the Lakmé Absolute Flutter Secrets Dramatic Eyes Mascara that has a long-term curl memory formula. It gives your lashes crazy volume.

To take this look from day to night, line your eyes with the Lakmé Absolute Kohl Ultimate, and then, smudge it out for a smouldering look. You can even draw on a thin winged line using the Lakmé Absolute Precision Liner.
