Master a flirty rose gold eye makeup look

When creating a warm, romantic eye makeup look, two eye shadow colors have been fan favorites for years. Rose contributes warmth, and gold attracts the light. Combine the two, and you'll be rocking one of the hottest trends in makeup. When wearing these hues together, it's important to layer multiple colors so they'll have depth and dimension. A single rose-toned shadow can make you look feverish if overdone, but this tutorial will prevent that from happening.
Although two Colourpop eye shadow palettes are featured in this video, they're not absolutely essential. Any combination of brown, peach, rose and gold will work as long as they all have warm undertones. A set of luxe lashes make the look even more dramatic and date-appropriate.

Instructions
1. Groom brows with a spoolie, and fill them in with brow gel by using an angled brow brush.
2. Prepare your eyelids for shadow by applying eye shadow base with a flat concealer brush. Pat the base onto the skin to achieve coverage, and blend the edges with the flat-topped buffing brush.
3. Apply warm brown matte eye shadow to the crease and outer corners of your eyes with a fluffy blending brush.
4. Give the crease and outer corner of the eye added dimension by sweeping peachy beige matte eye shadow on those areas with the fluffy blending brush.
5. Intensify the outer third of the lid by applying dusty burgundy matte eye shadow with a small eye shadow brush.
6. Pat metallic champagne eye shadow onto the center of the lid with a flat eye shadow brush. Patting prevents eye shadow fallout below the eye.
7. Dust metallic pale gold eye shadow near the tear duct with a small eye shadow brush.
8. Apply peachy beige matte eye shadow below the lower lashes with a small eye shadow brush.
9. Intensify the shadow below the lower lash line by applying dusty burgundy matte eye shadow with a small shadow liner brush.
10. Line both the upper and lower waterlines with black pencil eyeliner. This process is called tightlining and makes lashes look fuller.
11. Apply black mascara to your upper and lower lashes.
12. Apply lash glue to the lash band of the false lashes, and wait 10 seconds for the glue to become tacky. Position the lashes just above your upper lashes by using a pair of tweezers.
