Summer Smokey Eye: A Rose Gold Look feat. Lush Emotional Brilliance

Hola Face Value friends! Today's makeup look is a rose gold inspired face. Think burnt copper, crushed gemstones, glints of champagne reflected by candlelight - today's makeup look is Summer's answer to smokey eyes and is perfect for a dinner date or a cheeky stopover at a chic wine bar.

Rose gold can be flattering on so many skintones and it's not just for your cheeks or lips. I never really wear colour on my eyes but rose gold is so subtle - it's almost like taupe and it really works! 

I'll be honest, when I first tried it, I just looked massively boooooozed (thanks, asian drinking genes!) but with the right balance of smoke and definition ie superfine eyeliner and a coat of fluttery mascara, it's really very, very easy.


Today, I've gone for rose-tinted eyeshadow, with a flush of rose on the cheeks, and a shimmery champagne rose gold on the lips. 

 And the real beauty is ...I've only used 2 products to achieve it! 



What did I use?



The star of this look is this Emotional Brilliance Liquid Lipstick by Lush. It's called a Liquid Lipstick but it's a dream to use on cheeks too as it's velvety smooth and not sticky at all.









With Rose Wax and Jojoba Oil, it's super hydrating and I love the creamy, yet smooth, feel on my lips.


This shade is called Perspective and it's a beautiful dusky, champagne rose with a lovely subtle radiance set through it.


On my eyes, I've used the rubbish-name-but-amazing-value 12 Colour Generation 3 Eyeshadow Palette - the Urban Decay Naked 3 dupe which I found on Tmart.com. 

For more details on the palette (and why I'm doing this stupid face) read my full review here.

So there we go - my Rose Gold Summer Smoke makeup look using Lush and Tmart. What do you think?


Would you wear these colours? If you haven't, you should try it!! I normally steer clear of anything which isn't brown, grey or black but I'm really pleased with this.

Have you tried any of the Lush Emotional Brilliance range?
