LOTW: Warm Up a Little with Rose Gold

You don't have to look like an ice queen just because it's cold outside.

Sometimes, when I get ready to do LOTW, I have absolutely no idea what I want to do, so I just sit in from of my vanity and stare at what I have until I see a product or color that I want to use and then I build from there.

This week I was doing exactly that and realized it had been a long time since I made rose gold the focal point of my look, so here goes!

After priming, I applied a shimmery milk chocolate shade all over my lid.

Next, I took a matte medium pink-brown shadow and defined my crease with a stiff blending brush.

I highlighted my brow bone with a light beige matte shadow, and then I blended the crease into that highlight with a fluffy blending brush and a matte light brown shade.

After applying my foundation and filling in my brows, I lined my upper and lower lash line with a bronze crayon liner, and then I smudged the lower lash line out with the same shadow I used to define my crease.

I finished the eyes by adding a rose gold shade to the center of the lid and the inner tear duct area and then coating my lower and upper lashes with mascara.

I wanted the overall look to be very warm, so I used a matte bronzer for blush and topped with a little bit of pink blush just on the apples of my cheek for more color. Then, I added a warm, shimmery blush to the top for extra glow and highlighted the tops of my cheekbones and cupid’s bow with a rose gold highlighter.

For the lips, I lined with a muted brown liner and then topped with creamy pink-brown lipstick.

Here are my favorite looks from last week:
