For the cheeks, I opted for my brand new Sleek Rose Gold Blush. It's a stunning rosy pink with prominent gold shimmer. It gives a wonderful sheen to the cheeks without any hint of frost. It creates such a healthy flush! On the lips, I selected another fresh summery shade from my UK swap, MUA Lipstick in Nectar. It's a cheery peachy coral that adds a kick to the lips while still being subtle enough to fit with the softer motif of the look. It's such a "me" shade- was so thrilled to receive it!
The standout on the eyes is a longtime fave of mine, MAC Paint Pot in Rubenesque. Not only is the shade name up my alley, the colour speaks to me as well. It's a shimmery golden rosy peach that gives a beautiful glow to the eyes and makes me feel straight out of a Botticelli. A perfect partner for Rose Gold!
