The Best Rose Gold Makeup For Fair Skin Tones

Achieve true radiance with these rose gold must-haves

Many fair-skinned beauties are used to being told they have “rosy cheeks,” as those with this skin tone are often blessed with a natural flush of color. Rose gold cheeks? Not as much… until now.

Rose gold is a gorgeous shade that’s taken over our lives within the last few years. Rose gold phone case? Check. Hair color? Everywhere. Eyeshadow and blush? On every single beauty influencer, everywhere. And we definitely understand why, as the rose gold color is absolutely beautiful on every feature.

While it looks dreamy and divine on all skin tones, due to a combination of warm and cool tones, it has a special place in our hearts (and makeup bags) for those with fair skin. It looks soft, sweet, and stunning all at once… and there’s nothing more radiant than a rose gold blush that adds warmth to the cheeks and catches the light in an ethereal way. Or a rose gold eyeshadow that brings out your baby blues or browns.

And thanks to the popularity of the rose gold color, the options when searching for rose gold makeup are endless. Collect every blush, shadow, and highlighter as you bring this striking shade into your makeup for fair skin looks.

Urban Decay has always been way ahead of the trends, and the Naked3 palette proves it. The palette has been serving rose gold eyeshadow realness since 2013, a few years ahead of the mainstream rise of the shade in 2017-2018. But that’s why we love UD, and these ultra-pigmented, blendable shades can be mixed and matched for a range of rose gold makeup looks for your fair skin. Use the dusty pink mattes and shimmers alone for a soft glam look, or use bronze and burgundy shades to add intensity and produce evening looks that are perfect for your first few nights out after quarantine. We’re obsessed with all of Urban Decay’s Naked palettes, from Ultraviolet to Naked Heat to Naked Smokey, but Naked3 is a classic that you can’t go wrong with when looking for rose gold radiance.

Use over your foundation for a swipe of rose gold across your cheeks, or use as a contour powder for a sculpted blush look that’s just the right amount of edgy and exquisite.
