Rose gold is one of the prettiest shades to be discovered of late. From watches to shoes, everything has a bit of rose gold in it. So, we’ll tell you how to include rose gold into your makeup.

For some people, using too much of gold makeup can either be too plain or too over the top. Going for rose gold can be a softer and prettier option than the everyday brown and gold combination.

You can use rose gold anywhere, like your lips or eyes. And the best part is that rose gold would suit people of all skin tones!

So, go ahead and add rose gold to your makeup regime now and here’s how to add rose gold to your makeup. Read on.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

1. Eyeshadow:

This is the safest bet to go for if you are just starting out with the rose gold trend. Go for a matte dusty rose shade for your lips when you have this eyeshadow on, as too much shimmer can look a little off.

2. Lipstick:

Frost lipsticks are making a comeback! And what better shade to get the frosty lip look than a rose gold? The glitter on the lipstick can be a little drying, so be sure to use a lip balm before putting this on.

3. Blush:

Go for a blush with a dusty rose colour, and with tiny flecks of gold shimmer in it, so that it looks good when the light hits your face. That’s how to do a rose gold makeup.

First, check out the rose gold makeup tutorial below and then browse through my favorite looks!

What You’ll Need:

  • Sigma Awake Eye Shadow Base
  • Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
  • OCC Pigment in Twirl
  • Sigma Black Gel Liner WICKED & Brush
  • Carli Lashes
  • L’oreal Telescopic Mascara
  • Hourglass: Mineral Veil Primer
  • OCC Glitter in Beige
  • Smashox Primer
  • Chanel Perfection Lumiere in #30
  • LA Girl Pro Conceal in Creamy Beige
  • Makeup For Ever Concealer
  • Rimmel Stay Matter Powder

  • MAC Boldly Bare Lipliner
  • Hourglass: Femme Nude Lipstick in #1

Step 1: Apply eyeshadow.

First, apply the eyeshadow base all over the eyelids. Next, apply gold eyeshadow all over the lid and then layer it with a light pink shimmer eyeshadow. This step will help achieve the rose gold eyes. After the lids, work on the crease with a brown eyeshadow, this will serve as a transition color. Apply the first layer right on your crease. When it’s completely blended out, add another layer to deepen the crease.

Step 2: Apply eyeliner and pack on the color.

Apply white eyeshadow just under your eyebrows to give the eyes a lift. And then make sure to blend the brown (on the crease) and white eyeshadow seamlessly.

With eyeliner, there’s no one right way to do it. Feel free to do the eyeliner you want to enhance your eye’s shape. Add drama to your eye makeup by wearing false eyelashes. However, do apply mascara on your upper lashes first before attaching the falsies.

To make the eyeshadow more vibrant, you can add a layer of champagne gold pigment/eyeshadow.

Step 3: Apply face makeup.

Now, we’re moving on to the face. Start by applying primer all over the face. Follow it up with foundation. Apply it over the face and make sure to blend smoothly.

In this tutorial, concealer was used for highlighting. So first, apply the concealer under the eyes (forming a triangle shape) and in between the brows, the bridge of the nose, cupid’s bow, and chin. While you’re at it, do your contouring as well so you can blend them all together smoothly. Apply your contour cream around the forehead, nose, cheekbones, and jawline.

Blend everything properly. Please don’t rush this process as you’d really want everything to be blended out smoothly.

Step 4: Set with powder and contour again.

Set your face makeup with a setting powder using a powder brush. And then move on to contouring again. Give the face a well-defined shape by applying contour powder on the areas you applied contour cream before, this creates more depth to your face.

Step 5: Add pigments and glitters.

Brighten up the eyes by adding pigments on your lower lashline. You can add pretty glitters on your lower lashline too. If you want to make this rose gold makeup more glamorous, add glitter eyeshadow all over the lids with your fingertip. Just gently dab the glitter on the lids.

Next, make the eyes look brighter by applying mascara on your lower lashes. And then finish up your eye makeup lining the lower lash line with a nude eyeliner.

Step 6: Work on the cheeks.

We’re almost done ladies. We just have to add more color here and there. So, now, apply your blush of choice all over the cheeks and then highlight the cheekbones for a subtle glow.

Step 7: Apply lip color.

Outline the lips with a lip liner in a rose pink shade then apply a nude lipstick shade all over the lips. It’s best to go matte on the lips since the eyes are shimmery and sparkly.

And you’re done ladies!

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Neutral shadows, oily lids, and heavily lined eyes are likely in your fall and winter beauty rotation, so why not shake things up a bit with a shiny shadow of the rose gold variety? While rose gold has been having a moment in the jewelry and hair department, it has sneakily infiltrated the beauty scene with gorgeous highlighters, metallic pink polishes, and our personal favorite, eye shadow shades that nearly resemble the sunset. To master the rose gold beauty trend, we reached out to a bevy of makeup artists for their favorite rose gold eye makeup products. Why is rose gold makeup on the rise, you ask? Mainly because of its versatility, as it “complements both fair and dark skin tones,” says Honey Artists makeup artist Azra Red.

To try your hand at this gorgeous golden shadow trend.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Make blue eyes pop with a peachy gold shadow. Celebrity makeup artist Stevi Christine recommends using Nars Duo Eyeshadow ($35) in Hammamet, a half-matte, half-shimmer palette (the perfect combination, no?).

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Swap out your tried-and-true liner for a rose gold version. To create a bold cat eye, we suggest using Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil ($22,) in Wildside.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

To achieve this shimmery rose gold lid, Honey Artists makeup artist Suzy Gerstein suggests using Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Colour ($29) in Rose Gold, as she says it flatters nearly all skin tones, especially light to medium ones. If you want to enhance your eyes further, try blending a deeper warm brown tone in the crease to add definition. Finish it with eyeliner and lots of mascara to set the look in place.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

For a smooth shimmery finish, Ma recommends Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Wash Eye Shadow ($28), a gorgeously glittery shadow that gives a translucent wash to your lids.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Illuminate your cheeks and eyes with a subtle sunset hue. “Opt for a multi-purpose stick that can be all-in-one quick color,” like Ilia’s Multi-Stick in All of Me ($34), says Red.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

If you’re looking for a majorly pigmented rose gold shadow, Honey Artists makeup artist Min Min Ma recommends Make Up For Ever’s Artist Shadow Eyeshadow and Powder Blush ($17) in Golden Pink, which she says “is great for gals with darker skin tones.” Want to turn your rose gold eye into an evening-appropriate look? Christine recommends pairing your golden shadow with Dior’s Diorshow Kohl Professional Eye Makeup ($30) for a sultry smoky eye.

Glitter eye products need to be removed with makeup removers that really get the job done, to ensure nothing is left behind. When removing glitter from the eyes, the best practice is to soak a cotton pad in a gentle makeup remover that’s still tough on makeup.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

For ladies with fair skin, try a shadow that runs heavy on the rose side, like Eyeko’s Me & My Shadow Waterproof Eyeshadow & Eyeliner ($13) in the color Quartz, as it adds a nice flush to pale and or porcelain skin. If you want a sheer lipstick look that gives a slight color but isn’t overpowering, NARS’s Satin Lipstick in Orgasm ($26,) is the perfect shade of rose gold merged with a soft, light pigment finish.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Want an everyday rose gold shadow? Try RMS Beauty’s Master Mixer ($38) a multipurpose product that can be applied “alone on the ball of [your] eyelids for a soft look, or mix it with cream eye shadows as well as primer or foundation to add shimmer,” says Kristine Cruz, senior makeup artist at Antonio Prieto Salon.

Because there’s still one more place to accessorize with the trendy metallic shade.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

When you hear “smoky eye,” you picture something dark and sultry, right? There’s a new way to recreate the classic look, one that lightens the mood but not the sex appeal. Behold: the rose gold smoky eye.

“Smoky actually refers to the technique, not the color,” says makeup artist Gabriel Almodovar. “It means you want the darkest concentration of color at the lash line, and then the color should dissipate as it reaches your brow bone like smoke in the air.”

Gild your lids in ombré awesomeness with a few shadows from the Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette and these six steps.

1. Create your base. Dab concealer or primer (like Color Tattoo Metal 24Hr Cream Gel Shadow) all over your lids and up toward your brows. “Not only does it make your makeup last longer,” Almodovar says, “but if you use a shade like ‘Iced in Pink,’ it also helps create a more seamless transition for your smoky eye later on, because you already have that hint of color and sparkle.”

2. Layer on a medium shade. Choose a rosy eye shadow that’s plenty pigmented but not too dark. No matter your skin tone, there are enough options in the Maybelline The Blushed Nudes Palette to create this whole look. Almodovar recommends the second color from the right in the top row for fair skin, and the second color from the left in the top row for medium skin tones. For dark skin tones, the bottom left shade is perfect. “Really pack the shadow in from the lash line up past the crease with a shadow brush,” he says.

3. Add the “smoke” factor. Mentally split your top eyelid into thirds — a rectangle in the middle and a triangle on each corner — and focus on the outer triangle for this step. First, find your darkest shadow, a deep metallic. If you have fair or medium skin, opt for the second or third shadow in the bottom row; for dark skin, go for the bottom right shade. Then, using a shadow brush, outline the edges of that triangle from the lash line to the corner, then up into the crease and down again. Fill in the triangle and buff to blend.

4. Define your eyes. Sure, rose gold is a bit more delicate than your typical smoky eye, but you still need brown liner to make your eyes pop. “Just work it right into the roots of your lashes for definition,” Almodovar says. “You’re not trying to be perfect.”

5. Reinforce the lower lash line. Dust the same dark shadow you used in step no. 3 over the liner along your bottom lashes, all the way across. “Really blend so the whole look on the bottom is connected to the top,” he says. This gives your lower lashes that same sultry, smoky feeling as your eyelids.

6. Brighten up the inside. Blend a dot of pearly shadow — one shade lighter than whatever you used in step no. 2 — onto the inner corners of your eyes. “Not only does this help create brightness,” Almodovar says, “it makes sure your eyes don’t look closer together, which can happen when you do a smoky eye.”

7. Finish with flirty lashes. Using a volumizing mascara, wiggle the wand at the root of the lashes and slowly work it through to the tips. Don’t forget about your bottom lashes: “When you have dark shadow along the bottom lash line, your lashes will just disappear if you don’t hit them with mascara too,” he says.

Every woman that is about to change her hair color to blonde should get to know the blonde hair color chart. Let’s see how diverse blonde can be! This post is your guide that will help you to choose the right blonde shade based on your skin tone and eye color.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Blonde hair color chart is something that blondies and anyone who wishes to go on blonde hair dye should know. Just to update your knowledge, the blonde hair color chartis not divided between dark and light shades. This is because the shades of blonde colors you see on people are varieties of different unique shades mixed together.

ADVERTISEMENT ‧ CONTINUE READING BELOW

Blonde isn’t just a light color, it’s a collective image of the softest, lightsome hues in the world. Are you about to go blonde or switch up your blonde hair with new shades? Not so fast! You have to be sure that you are familiar with the various shades before becoming a blonde.

What Shade of Blonde Hair is Right for Me?

To answer this question, there are factors to be taken into consideration before choosing from the various types of blonde hair. Here are a few of those factors you should consider:

Find out your skin tone: Unlike what many people think, any shade of blonde doesn’t go perfectly on everyone. To pick the right shade, you have to find out if you have a warm or cool undertone.

You can quickly find out by looking at the veins on your wrists. Purple or blue means you’re cool toned, while green shows you’re warm toned and combination of blue and green means you’re neutral. Being neutral leaves you with more choices.

Consider your eye color: If you’ve got lighter eye colors, multi-tonal and soft shades will be perfect for you. Darker eye colors complement richer and deeper blondes.

Pink or paler skin: Naturally, pink and paler skin color go well with delicate blonde colors. While gold-toned or darker yellow is perfect for honey or golden hues.

The condition of your hair: If your hair is not healthy, it won’t be advisable to switch to blonde hair color, because shampoos, conditioners designed for colored hair are to be used.

Maintenance: Different blonde shades come in different maintenance. Some blonde color need more attention, while some don’t

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

After you’ve found out the shade of blonde that suits you, you’ll get to understand the different shades of blonde.

Fall may signal the arrival of sweater weather and pumpkin spiced everything, but it’s also the start of skin and hair feeling dry AF. With that in mind, you probably don’t want to rush to the salon to go completely rose gold for the season. After all, bleach plus thirsty hair is a disaster waiting to happen. Instead, you might want to try a more season-appropriate, subtle rose-gold look. Sacramento, California–based hairstylist Patricia Nikole, also known as @paintedhair on Instagram, gave us the ultimate rose-gold hair inspo for this fall. It’s like a combination of fallayage (warm-toned balayage ICYMI,) and this summer’s rose-gold hair trend. The result is gorgeous, and Patricia Nikole broke down all the details for Allure on how to get it.

To start off the rose-gold look, Patricia Nikole did some lowlighting throughout her client’s hair to lighten her chocolate color a bit. “I didn’t lift her too light, so the color will hold a lot longer,” she says. Then, Patricia Nikole mixed a custom color formula with golden blonde and reddish copper dyes from Oligo Professionnel. She even added an unexpected splash of violet. (Be sure to ask your stylist for this combo if you want to try this look for yourself.) Next, she used that as a toner all over her client’s hair and let it process for about 10 minutes. Finally, she washed it out and styled her hair into soft curls.

Because you don’t have to worry about bleaching all of your hair and coloring it rose gold, Patricia Nikole said this look is definitely low maintenance. You don’t have to worry as much about touch ups and further drying out your hair. Obviously, it’s a fun way to play with your hair color “and take in those lovely fall tones,” too, she says. “It’s a plus for those who might not be able to wear fashion colors to work,” she adds.

And if you want to make this look even easier on your hair, a Best of Beauty award winner can help you out.

How to Remove Gold Leaf

While pure gold is forever, gold plating often fades with the passage of time. Thankfully, items that are gold plated can often be repaired and restored to their former glory. While you may not always be able to restore them to look as good as new, you will be able to make the gold plated items look much better than they did before restoration.

Clean the item. Prepare the surface and remove all contaminants that could cause problems later. Use a gentle hand soap and a tooth brush to remove any dirt and grime. Pat dry using a paper towel, then let the item air dray completely to make sure that the surfaces, including any crevices, are free of moisture.

Buff the surface with a jeweler’s cloth. Sometimes, this is all that is needed to restore a uniform luster to the surface and to dull down the high points where the underlying metal shows through the gold finish. Jeweler’s cloths are often made to wipe tarnish off of silver, but they are also effective on gold plated items.

Use a gold plating kit. If cleaning and buffing did not provide a satisfactory result, there are kits available that are aimed at helping people restore gold plated items.

For immersion gold plating kits, put the item that needs plating repair in a small basket, which comes in the kit. Place the basket on an activator disc. Next, you place the basket and activator disc into a pre-heated gold solution (which comes in the kit as well).

After several seconds, rinse the object in water, then buff it with a polishing cloth. It creates a gold bond in seconds, which serves as an easy fix.

Things You’ll Need

  • Gentle liquid hand soap
  • Soft toothbrush
  • Paper towel
  • Jewelry polishing cloth
  • Gold plating kit

Visit a local jeweler if your piece is of extreme value as the jeweler may have more advanced techniques such as electroplating which can be used.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

The colour of your glasses can make a huge difference to your overall look. When choosing a pair of frames, think about finding a style that either complements or contrasts against your hair colour, eye colour, and skin tone, depending on the effect you want to create.

Neutral frames, such as black, brown, and tortoiseshell have a versatile quality, while coloured frames are great if you want to make a bit more of a statement. Read through our guide to choosing a glasses frame colour for expert advice on finding a pair that makes your favorite features stand out.

Matching glasses frames colour to eye colour

When deciding what glasses frames colour works best with your eye colour, ask yourself whether you want to make a statement or opt for something versatile. For a subdued and understated look, choose frames in a colour that match with the neutral tones in your eyes, such as brown, beige, or black.

If you want to channel a fun, statement-making look, choose a colour that’s contrasting but complementary to your eye colour.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Gray Eyes

Choose colourful frames to bring a bright finish to your look. Because grey is already a neutral tone, almost any bright colour will work with grey eyes.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Brown/Amber Eyes

Any colour will look great with brown or amber eyes, from classic black to brighter tones. If you want to stand out, choose a bold colour that contrasts against brown and amber, like a bright green or a cool blue.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Blue Eyes

For a bold look, orange (the complementary colour to blue) will really make your eyes pop. Natural tones, such as tortoiseshell and brown glasses will also look good with blue eyes.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Green Eyes

Red is a complementary colour to green and will bring a vibrant contrast if you want to channel a statement-making look. Gold or purple frames will also have a similar, striking effect.

For something a little bit more understated, consider brown or other earthy tones. These subdued frame colours always look good with green eyes.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Hazel Eyes

Hazel eyes often seem to switch from brown to green and so choosing green or brown frames will provide both contrast as well as coordination. Amber frames are also a flattering choice.

Matching glasses frames colour to hair colour

Hair plays by similar rules as your eyes: depending on the vibe you want to go for, your frames can bring a subtle finish or striking statement to your overall look. There are a few different things to think about when choosing glasses based on your hair colour.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Black Hair

Darker frames like black or tortoiseshell look especially sleek with black hair, as they help to create a sophisticated, coordinated effect.

On the other hand, brighter colours will bring a sharp contrast, which is great if you’re after a statement-making finish.

White/Gray Hair

White or gray hair provides the ultimate neutral pallet, making it a great hair colour for anyone who likes to experiment with different looks. Neutral frames will look effortlessly stylish, while bright colours will add a pop of excitement to your outfit.

Brown Hair with red undertones

If you have brown hair with red undertones—also called auburn hair—you’re the perfect match with tortoiseshell frames and other colours that have warm, earthy tones, such as amber or dark green.

Brown hair with blonde/ash undertones

If your brown hair has pale undertones, dark frames—especially black ones—will complement the balance of deep and light colours in your overall look.

You can also get playful by coordinating with the pale shades in your hair and experimenting with light-toned glasses, such as clear frames or pastel colours.

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Blonde Hair

If you have dark tones in your blonde hair and want to get a neutral look, choose frames in warm colours, such as tortoiseshell, beige, or dark brown.

Those with ashy or platinum blonde hair look especially striking with pastels and other bright colours, which create a fun contrast against light hair.

Matching glasses frame colour to skin tone

How to Add Rose Gold to Your Eyes

Depending on whether you have a particularly warm or cool skin tone, specific colours of frames may be more likely to complement your overall look.

Cool skin tone

Noted for having a pink undertone, cool skin types look best with similarly cool-toned frames like blue undertones, silver, gray, green, and clear. All-black frames may be too harsh but look great when balanced out with a subtle pattern or accent colour.

Neutral skin tone

Neutral skin types — with a mix of pink and golden undertones — can wear just about anything. Go bold with stark black, keep it neutral with a tortoise pattern, or play with any number of fun shades.

Warm Skin Tone

Accented with a golden undertone, warm skin types look best with similarly warm frames — tortoise, brown, red, orange, gold, and yellow. They also look great with the boldness of black.

Have you ever tried a lip color or foundation shade that just doesn’t look right? You can’t quite describe it, but the color doesn’t want to work with your skin tone. This is where knowing your undertone can come in handy.

If you’re debating between two shades, knowing your undertone can help you understand which one will look better without even trying it on! While two slightly different colored foundations may work for your skin, finding the foundation that matches your undertone will make your makeup look more natural.

What’s an Undertone?

Before we help you figure out your undertone, let’s go over what an undertone is. An undertone is the color from underneath the surface of your skin that affects your overall hue. There are three undertones – cool, warm, and neutral. You’ve most likely seen makeup products with shades like “cool linen” or “warm bisque,” and these descriptions refer to skin undertones.

A cool undertone is generally associated with skin that has hints of blue, pink, or a ruddy red complexion. A warm undertone is more peachy, golden, or yellow. Neutral is a mixture (or neither!) of the two.

Undertone Test #1: Vein Color

There are a few ways to find out your undertone. First, look at your veins. Are they a blue or purple hue, or are they greenish in color? A blue or purple hue means you likely have a cool undertone, while green leans towards warm. If you find your veins are neither or in-between the two, you might be neutral.

Undertone Test #2: White vs Off-White

Next, hold up a piece of white fabric and an off-white fabric (such as a shirt or dress) next to your face. Which do you look better wearing? If you look better in white, you have a warm undertone, whereas if you look better in off-white or look too washed out in white, you have a cool undertone. If both look good, you’re neutral.

Undertone Test #3: Silver or Gold

Now do the same with jewelry, using gold and silver earrings or a necklace. Does silver look sophisticated and sexy against your skin, or do you look more glam and gorgeous in gold? Cool toned beauties look best in silver, while warm beauties look better in gold.

Undertone Test #4: True Complexion

Your undertone is also often determined by your hair and eye color. If you have brown, black, or blonde hair with blue, grey, or green eyes, you likely have a cool undertone. If you have red, brown, black, or strawberry blonde hair with brown or hazel eyes, you probably have a warm undertone.

Undertone Test #5: Burn vs Tan

Lastly, think about how you tan. If you burn quickly or burn and then tan, you probably have a cool undertone. If you tan quickly, you’re likely warm-toned, and if you tan slowly, but don’t burn very often, you’re most likely neutral.

Choosing the Right Makeup Colors

Now that you know your undertone, it’s time to choose the right baked goods! Complexion products – like foundation, bronzer, highlighter, and concealer – should have a very slight dash of pink for cool tones, and a pinch of yellow or golden for warm tones.

For blush and lipsticks, stock your pantry with blue-reds, berries, and rosy pink flavors if you have a cool undertone. For warm undertones, go for peachy pinks, orange-reds, and nude pink flavors.

Pop over to the Bakerie to stock your pantry with the best variety of flavored treats for all undertones!

Apple’s new iOS 13 is finally here. If you own an iPhone, I’m pretty sure you’ve been counting down the days for the Apple iOS 13 software update to become available for download. Twitter and the rest of the internet is buzzing with user responses to the new update. One of the most major features in iOS 13 is Dark Mode. If you’ve already downloaded the update, or are planning to, you may be wondering how to turn on Dark Mode for iPhone with the Apple iOS 13 update, which was released Thursday, Sept. 19.

Dark Mode has been one of the consistently anticipated features for iPhone users. The setting is supposed to be easier on the eyes, and perhaps even conserve your iPhone’s battery life when compared to the usual white background. Dark Mode will alter your iPhone’s background screen to black, darkening the entire user interface. The keyboard even switches to a gray shade — perfect for when you don’t want bright light in your eyes when on your phone. As someone with slightly more sensitive eyes — thanks, astigmatism — this whole idea is a win-win.

So, how do you turn on Dark Mode on your iPhone with the new Apple iOS 13 update? There are two ways to do it.

1. Use the Control Center

Swipe down or up to get to your Control Center. If you have an iPhone X or later, you’ll swipe down. If you have an iPhone 8 Plus or earlier, you’ll be swiping up.

Once you’re in the Control Center, press down and hold the Brightness bar — you’ll notice it has the sun icon.

Then, as you can see above, there will be a Dark Mode icon in the bottom left corner, where you can select On to switch to Dark Mode, or if it’s not on, it’ll say “Dark Mode Off.”

You can also add Dark Mode to your Control Center — which gets rid of that whole step of holding down the Brightness bar — by going to Settings > Control Center > Customize Controls > and select to include “Dark Mode.” You will then see the Dark Mode icon in your Control Center, like the last icon in the screenshot below, and you can tap it on or off.

2. Go to Settings

The second way to turn on Dark Mode with the iOS 13 update is to do it directly from your Settings. Go to Settings, tap “Display & Brightness,” and then select “Light Mode” or “Dark Mode.”

3. Schedule Dark Mode

One more cool little shortcut, though, is the option to schedule Dark Mode. In your Settings, tap on “Display & Brightness,” where you can select Light Mode or Dark Mode. When you select one, you will see the Automatic setting. Toggle that on, and you can choose “Light Until Sunset,” “Dark Until Sunrise,” or do a Custom Schedule.

The scheduling option is similar to scheduling “Do Not Disturb” on your iPhone. It just makes it a little more convenient if you know that you are going to want your iPhone in Dark Mode or Light Mode during a certain part of your day, like before bedtime or whatever you prefer.

Unfortunately, not all iPhone owners are going to be able to download the iOS 13 update. If you’ve got an iPhone older then the iPhone SE, 6S, and 6S Plus, I regret to tell you that Apple iOS 13 won’t work on iPhone 6, 6 Plus, or older models. So, this may be a good time to consider upgrading to a new iPhone if you’re dying for the new update.

If you have an iPhone 6S or later, you should be downloading the iOS 13 update ASAP to take advantage of the new Dark Mode and other cool features.

Are you toying with taking the plunge into blonde hair color? Are you already a blonde, but you think your blonde hair color could be even better? In either event, you’re in luck. Being a blonde really is fun, and it’s even more thrilling when you’re sporting a shade of blonde hair color that makes people stop and stare. The right blonde makes your eyes sparkle, your complexion come alive and gives you an unbeatable boost of confidence. To get a blonde hair color that puts a smile on your face every time you pass a mirror, it’s all about your skin tone. Find the shade that enhances your complexion and you’ve won the battle of the blondes!

Here are 16 of today’s most popular blonde hair color shades, and the skin tones that work well with each.

Platinum Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light or medium, cool skin tones

With its icy whiteness, platinum blonde hair color brings the drama. It creates energizing contrast with your cool skin and makes your eyes truly pop. Perfect your cat-eye, smoky eye and red lip if you opt for platinum blonde hair color, because wearing little-to-no makeup can make you look washed out.

Keep your platinum blonde hair icy cool with our new deep conditioning toning hair mask that adds beautiful silver tones to platinum hair.

Icy Blue Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light, cool skin tones

A cool, light blue or pale grey overlay is a modern way to do light blonde hair color. To achieve a cool, clear result, your hair will need to first be lightened to a very pale blonde shade.

Pastel Pink Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light or medium cool skin tones

Pink is the “it” shade for blonde hair color these days. You’ll look especially pretty in pink if your complexion is cool, and fair or medium. Consider trying a metallic pink for a more sophisticated spin on pink hair color.

Pale Peach Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light or medium warm or neutral skin tones

If your skin tone is too warm to sport a dusty pastel like pink, pale peach hair color is the way to go. The subtle warmth of this blonde hair color will enhance your complexion beautifully, within the pastel realm.

Pearl Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light or medium cool skin tones

Look closely at a pearl and you’ll see subtle swirls of pale pink and blue within an alabaster base. So it stands to reason that the same skin tones that come alive with blue blonde or pastel pink blonde would be excellent choices for a pearl blonde hair color.

Silver Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light or medium cool skin tones

Silver blonde is grey with a metallic finish, and the result is cool and elegant. It’s stunning on pale or olive skin tones. Ideally, it should sport some dimension—think about a darker root that melts into shimmering silver midlengths and ends.

Champagne Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light or medium cool or neutral skin tones

The cool tones of champagne provide an elegant backdrop for light or medium skin tones that are cool or neutral. If your skin is cool, consider adding a few platinum highlights to your champagne blonde base for a high-end glow.

Beige Blonde Hair Color

Hair Color Credit: @hellobalayage

Best for: light, medium and dark cool or neutral skin tones

Beige blondes are typically neutral in tone—it’s a pale, sandy fawn color. It’s especially flattering on people with fair complexions with pink undertones and light-colored eyes. Lighter blonde highlights add the perfect accent to beige blonde hair color.

Mocha Blonde Hair Color

Hair Color Credit: @theblolounge_

Best for: light, medium and dark cool or neutral skin tones

This creamy blonde hue is an ideal base color for lighter blonde highlights, and it also serves as a beautiful blonde highlight shade in a deeper blonde base color. Mocha blonde contains no warmth, and occasional applications of a purple shampoo or conditioner will ensure this blonde hair color keeps its cool!

Butter Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light and medium warm and neutral skin tones

This pale, warm shade is beautiful on complexions with subtle golden undertones. It’s also the perfect base for pale blonde highlights and contrasts beautifully when golden skin darkens a bit in the summer.

Golden Blonde Hair Color

Hair Color Credit: @mj_bymatjohnson

Best for: light and medium warm skin tones

Rich, golden blonde hair color is the gold standard for people with warm undertones. It brings blue, green and hazel eyes alive, and looks especially elegant when it’s streaked with buttery warm highlights.

Rose Gold Blonde Hair Color

Best for: any skin tone

Rose gold is a mixture of pink and peach. If your skin is cool, your rose gold hair color should carry more pink in the formula. If your skin is warm, your rose gold should be more on the warm peach side. Avoid rose gold if you have a ruddy complexion.

Strawberry Blonde Hair Color

Best for: light warm skin tones

This warm, reddish blonde hair color is one of the most striking blonde hair color shades. It comes in a wide range of options, from golden blonde with a touch of red to the opposite end of the spectrum—shimmering, golden red.

Honey Blonde Hair Color

Hair Color Credit: @hairbyaide

Best for: medium or dark warm skin tones

This warm and shiny blonde hair color is beautiful on medium skin tones with darker eye colors such as brown or black. It also serves as a beautiful base for golden blonde or butter blonde highlights.

Caramel Blonde Hair Color

Hair Color Credit: @constancerobbins

Best for: Medium to dark warm or neutral skin tones

As rich and warm as its sweet namesake, caramel blonde hair color makes a golden complexion glow. If your hair is dark blonde or light brown, add caramel blonde highlights for dimension and warmth.

Bronde Hair Color

Best for: Any skin tone

Just like it sounds, bronde hair is in-between brown hair color and blonde hair color. It’s one of the most versatile hair color shades there is, because you can blend any shades of brown and blonde to achieve the look. So if your complexion is warm, use warm brown and blonde hair color, and vice versa if your skin tone is cool. Typically, bronde hair combines a light brown base hair color with blonde balayage highlights.

9. Fair and Lovely: Add 2 tbsp gram flour and mix it with rose water plus lemon juice to make a smooth paste. Apply for 15 minutes to get rid of tanning.

Comments 10. Pamper Yourself: Mix rose water with almond oil or regular cream and moisturise your body. “For some extra indulgence, draw yourself a rose-scented bath. It’s considered the best antidote to stress”, recommends Dr. Deepali Bhardwaj, Skincare Expert.

Have you ever thought about dying your hair red? Maybe you were a redhead as a kid, or maybe you’ve always just loved red hair. Red is a high-impact hair color—it grabs attention immediately! So if you do opt for a red hair color shade, get ready to turn heads! To help you decide on the right red hair color for you, here are some great options, along with tips for going red, from the pros at Matrix.

Warm Red Hair Color Shades

Bright Copper Hair Color

Bright copper hair color is vivid and intense—like a shiny, new penny! It’s an exciting choice if you have fair, peach-colored or golden-toned skin and green or hazel eyes. Get ready to stand out in a crowd—this is a color that gets noticed!

Ginger Red Hair Color

Ginger red hair color is a spicy, light or medium reddish brown tone that is one of the most natural-looking reds in the spectrum. (In fact, in the UK, natural redheads like Prince Harry are called “gingers.) Natural redheads have fair skin and green or brown eyes, and often have freckled complexions, so opt for this shade if you can tick those boxes on your skin tone and eye color profile!

Copper Highlights

Copper highlights can be added to darker red shades to add realistic dimension and make red hair color look brighter and more energized. Ask your stylist to try balayage highlights for a modern, natural effect. Add copper highlights to red hair color if your skin is fair or golden, and if you have green, brown or hazel eyes.

Light Auburn Hair Color

Light auburn hair color is a blend of light golden red and light brown. It’s been worn to perfection by actress Emma Stone! It’s a beautiful shade if you have a creamy, peach-toned or golden complexion with blue, green or warm brown eyes.

Medium Auburn Hair Color

Medium auburn hair color is a combination of medium golden red and medium brown. Scandal’s Darby Stanchfield’s remarkable hue is a perfect example of this shade. It’s striking with her porcelain complexion and blue eyes. It’s also an ideal red shade for people with green or warm brown eyes.

Golden Copper Hair Color

Golden copper is a warm and spicy hue—a blend of dark golden blonde and light, bright red. Actresses Amy Adams and Jessica Chastain wear this shade beautifully. Choose this shade if your complexion is porcelain, peach, golden or neutral, and if you have blue, green, hazel or warm brown eyes.

Red Copper Hair Color

Red copper hair color is a rich, bright blend of red and orange/brown. This shade will flatter fair-to-medium, peach-colored or golden-toned skin and blue, green or hazel eyes. Mad Men’s Christina Hendricks makes a strong and sexy statement with red copper hair color!

Dark Auburn Hair Color

Dark auburn hair color combines deep golden red and rich, warm brown. It’s an elegant and sophisticated shade of red that is beautiful on people with any warm or neutral skin tone—from peaches and cream to golden or bisque—and with blue, green, warm brown or hazel eyes. Actress Julianne Moore has made dark auburn hair her signature.

Cool Red Hair Color Shades

Red mahogany hair color is a deep, cool, reddish brown color. It’s a beautiful choice if you have fair or medium cool-toned skin and green, blue or brown eyes.

Intense red hair color is just that—a bright, intense, true red shade. A million paparazzi grabbed photos of Rihanna when she sported intense red hair in 2012. It was striking with her brown eyes and deep golden complexion; try it also if you have an olive complexion.

Rose Gold Hair Color

Rose gold hair color is one of today’s trendiest shades—it’s a coppery pink shade inspired by the jewelry of the same name. Rose gold hair color can be subtle or intense, and it’s great for people with porcelain, tan or olive complexions and all eye colors.

Ruby red hair color is a clear, deep, rich red inspired by the gemstone of the same name. It’s a dramatic shade when paired with a pale, porcelain complexion and with light blue or light green eyes.

Red Black Hair Color

Red black hair color is an extremely dramatic hue—very deep and dark with just a hint of red. Another popular way to combine red and black hair color is to add dark ruby or garnet red highlights or panels to an overall black shade. Wear this color if your skin is dark or olive, and if you have brown or green eyes.

Aubergine Red Hair Color

Aubergine red hair color is a highly exotic shade. It’s a deep eggplant hue that can be very dramatic. This shade should only be worn by people with cool skin tones and cool or neutral eye colors. It will be highly unflattering to warm, golden or tawny complexions!

Getting older is an adventure, in more ways than one. Because of changes in your skin and your style, your makeup regimen is one of the many things that evolves through the years. The skin around the eyes is particularly sensitive and requires more moisture as you age. Many women decide to ditch glittery and glow-y products and opt for smooth matte formulas instead. Prep the eyes carefully and use soft, warm colors to open them up.

Prep and Prime

Prepare your skin with a lightweight, fragrance-free daytime moisturizer and an eye cream for the sensitive skin under the eyes. Let the moisturizer absorb for a few minutes. Follow up by applying a liquid primer to the eyelid, the outer corner of the eye, and below the eye all the way down to the cheekbone. The primer sets a smooth base for the makeup. Gently blend in the product with your ring finger until it sits evenly on the skin.

If you have small veins or unevenness along the eyelid or some blue tones underneath the eye, apply a pea-sized drop of lightweight, slightly yellow-toned cream concealer, with a small concealer brush. Sweep the brush over your eyelid and underneath the eye and blend. Keep the application extremely light for a natural and crease-free look.

Eye Shadow

Smooth, matte eye shadow gives dimension and a wide-awake effect when done correctly on mature skin. Choose a matte, pressed-powder eye shadow in a neutral, warm tone, such as taupe or champagne. The matte finish applies more smoothly and is less likely to show off fine lines or creasing than when using makeup with a shimmery finish. With an eyeshadow brush, sweep the color over the entire eyelid and up to the crease.

Follow up with a slightly deeper matte shade such as honey brown, mauve, or a warm gray-brown. With a blending brush, sweep the color into the crease using gentle windshield-wiper motions. Focus the color on the outer half of the lid. If you have hooded lids, sweep the color slightly above the crease to add visual dimension and lift the eye. Blend this darker color until it sits softly and evenly on the outer corner of the eye.

Highlight your eyes and give them a dewy, refreshed glow with a lighter shadow. Opt for a finely milled pressed pearl or champagne color. Dip a small blending brush into the shadow and apply to the inner corner of your eye and along your brow bone for a natural, bright highlight.

  • For an evening look, build up the darker eye shadow along the crease and slightly up above the crease with a second layer of product. To create a smoky, warm effect, blend the darker color down and onto the lid. With an angle brush, sweep a tiny bit of the darker color along the outer edge of the bottom lash line.

Eyelashes

A full lash line adds vibrancy to the eyes, and it doesn’t require a heavy cat-eye. Invest in a dark brown or black waterproof cream eyeliner pencil. Apply along the lash line using small dash strokes. The goal is to build up the lash line rather than make a harsh line along the lid. Work the product from just inside the iris all the way to the outer corner of the eye.

Blend the eyeliner with a clean angle brush to smooth it out. Your lashes should appear thicker with added dimension at the lash line. Sweep the same angle brush along the bottom lash line to distribute the leftover product for a soft boost of color.

Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler. Clamp the tool about midway on the lashes and very gently squeeze a few times, each time moving the tool closer to the tips of the lashes. This step opens up the eyes for a refreshed look.

Apply a dark brown or black mascara for a subtle pop of color and definition. Look for a mascara with a fine wand. Avoid volumizing or clumpy mascaras, which create a jarring and harsh line on more mature eyes.

Eyebrows

Eyebrows anchor and frame the face. Brush your eyebrows, and using an angle brush, fill in any sparse areas with matte eye shadow. A light brown or taupe works with most hair colors, but you can also shop around for a shade suited to your brow hairs.
