Rose Gold and a Tan

Not too long ago, I came across a video by one of my favorite YouTube makeup gurus, Emily Noel. In this video, Emily showed some rose gold colored cosmetics (you can see the video here) that I just had to try!

I’m doing something this summer that I have never really successfully done---self tanner! The St. Tropez self tanning mousse that I reviewed a few weeks ago (here) is working so well and, let me tell you, rose gold colored makeup looks GREAT with a tan!

The Balm Hot Mama 1

For this look, I’m using several products that Emily mentions in her video. They are as follows:
  • The Balm’s Hot Mama Blush ($20.00 at The Balm)
  • Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Rikugien ($25.00 at Sephora)
  • elf Pout Perfecter ($3.00 at elf)
  • Sonia Kashuk Monochrome eye Quad in Textured Rose ($13.69 at Target)
  • L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadow in Amber Rush ($6.99 at Target)
I’ll be reviewing these products over the next couple of days so check back. Here are a few more pictures to give you an idea of what you can do with this color.

I have a couple of other rose gold products that I’ll review as well. Have you been wearing this color? What are you using?
