Like the jewelry that inspired it, rose gold makeup has long been considered something that’s super pretty to wear as an accent—an eye-catching highlight, a wash of blush, a metallic lid, and (for the brave) as a gorgeous hair color.

However, as one woman proved, the color is so versatile and flattering that it can be used more liberally than you think. Reddit user Kalimdore posted a photo she simply titled “rose gold everything” showing off a fully monochromatic look, hair included. In the accompanying text, Kalimdore lists out all the products used to achieve the look:



  • Makeup Revolution Flawless Palette Molten Chocolate, Pure Chocolate & Red Night
  • Bourjois Little Round Pot Blush Ashes of Roses
  • Maybelline Lash Sensational

Judging by how much the post is trending on Reddit with thousands of up votes, this look resonated widely with commenters calling it “hair and makeup goals” and the perfect “ simple Valentine’s Day look.” According to celebrity makeup artist Kyriaki Savrani, the look works because a full-faced rose gold makeup look comes across as “feminine and flattering.”

“Rose gold is versatile and can be worn in many different way,” says Savrani. “The main focus can be either the eyes (it makes them really stand out ) or the lips and keeping the rest of the face with a softer glow. My favorite way of using rose gold is as a ‘blending’ shade for any eye shadow you’re using. It’s a color that’s great for both day and evening and works with all skin tones. For cooler complexions, use a more pinkish gold. For warmer complexions, go for more gold than pink.

Need a few additional products to try out the look for yourself? Savrani recommends Kevyn Aucoin lip gloss in Starlight, CoverFX Custom Enhancer Drop in Rose Gold Liquid Illuminator and Huda Beauty Rose Gold palette.
