Minimal Rose Gold Eye Tutorial


Last week a friend of mine and I were talking about eyeshadow tutorials that use a crazy amount of products, upwards of seven to eight shadows. She is doing wedding makeup for a friend, and looking for inspiration had her terrified of only using a minimal amount of shadows. That conversation inspired me to create a pretty, but super easy eye look using just two shades: Amber Rush from the L’Oreal Infallible line, and the gold shade in the L’Oreal HIP Flare duo.


First, apply Amber Rush all over the lid. I used a Rite Aid Renewal eyeshadow brush.


Next, using the same brush, apply the gold shade from the Flare duo all over the lid, blending up into the crease. The color shift isn’t dramatic, but it is noticeable; the gold will also function as a highlight as we blend this out.


With a blending brush (I used one from a Sonia Kashuk kit), blend the shadow upwards to create a slight highlight on the brow bone. It will be very subtle, but visible as the light shifts. Make sure to blend until there are no harsh lines.

After blending, apply eyeliner and mascara. I used Kat Von D Tattoo liner in Trooper, and a little sample of Lancome Hypnose Star mascara.

This eye look will work in so many situations. Not only is it fast, it’s natural enough to wear to work, but pretty enough to wear on a night out if combined with a bold lip color! It’s super easy, and my favorite part: very feminine. 🙂

  1. Very nice! I gotta have Amber Rush! It’s such a pretty color and a nice break from all the bronze colors which everyone loves.
