How to create this rose gold makeup look that will have heads turning

When Pantone named rose quartz and serenity blue co-colors of 2016, the rose gold trend was born. Years later, this wildly popular makeup color continues to turn heads and woo makeup fanatics. Most rose gold looks rely on a trio of pink, rose and cranberry colors, but this eye-catching makeup combination goes a step further.
To achieve the multicolored eye look in the tutorial, two different Colourpop eye shadow palettes are used. If you don't own these already, use any combination of brown, beige, champagne, burgundy and gold shadow in your makeup kit. The combination of matte and metallic shades give this look a memorable finish.

Instructions
1. Hydrate your skin before applying makeup by patting a layer of moisturizer onto your face.
2. Once your moisturizer has absorbed fully, apply foundation primer to your face.
3. Apply liquid foundation to your face, then gently buff it into the skin with a foundation brush.
4. Apply concealer below your eyes with the applicator wand, then buff it into the skin with the flat-topped buffing brush. Buff the residual product onto the eye area to prime the lids for eye shadow. Tip: Use your foundation brush to blur any visible lines of demarcation before proceeding to the next step.
5. When contouring with a cream stick, apply the product directly to your upper forehead, temples, jawline, and just below the cheekbones. Blend it into your foundation with your foundation brush.
6. Pat yellow face powder over your concealer, below your cheek contour, around your nose, and onto your eyelids with a fluffy cheek brush. Let the powder sit briefly on the skin, then sweep away the excess.
7. Warm up your complexion by brushing bronzing powder onto the cheekbones, jawline and upper forehead with the fluffy cheek brush.
8. Groom your brows with a spoolie, then fill them in with brow gel by using an angled brow brush.
9. Prepare your eyelids for shadow by applying eye shadow base with a flat concealer brush. Pat the base onto the skin to achieve coverage, then blend the edges with the flat-topped buffing brush.
10. Apply warm brown matte eye shadow to the crease and outer corners of your eyes with a fluffy blending brush.
11. 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.
12. Intensify the outer third of the lid by applying dusty burgundy matte eye shadow with a small eye shadow brush.
13. Pat metallic champagne eye shadow onto the center of the lid with a flat eye shadow brush. Tip: Patting prevents eye shadow fallout below the eye.
14. Dust metallic pale gold eye shadow near the tear duct with a small eye shadow brush.
15. Apply peachy beige matte eye shadow below the lower lashes with a small eye shadow brush.
16. Deepen the shadow below the lower lash line by applying dusty burgundy matte eye shadow with a small shadow liner brush.
17. Line both the upper and lower waterlines with black eyeliner. This process is called tightlining and makes your lashes look fuller.
18. Apply black mascara to both your upper and lower lashes.
19. Apply lash glue to the lash band of the false lashes, then wait 10 seconds for the glue to become tacky. Position the lashes just above your upper lashes by using a pair of tweezers.
20. Line your lips with rosy brown lip pencil, then fill them in with rosy nude lipstick.
21. Apply peachy orange blush to the apples of your cheeks in an upward diagonal motion with a fluffy cheek brush. Pat the blush against your skin initially, then swirl the brush to diffuse the color.
22. Sweep pearly quartz highlighter along the top of your cheekbones, temples and down the center of your nose.
