When you think of metallics, you're probably usually thinking of the cold, slightly futuristic look of silver or the over the top glamour of yellow gold. Both silver and yellow gold can be very difficult to wear, based upon your skin tone, but that doesn't mean that you don't love the shimmery, eye catching effects of metallics. If you've been struggling to find the right metallic for your skin tone, and neither gold nor silver seems to suit you, you should get on board with this season's rose gold trend. Real gold is alloyed with other metals to make it hard enough to use as jewelry, and depending upon the metal used in the alloy, you usually end up with either white or yellow gold. Rose gold is simply gold that has been alloyed with copper, giving it a rosy, pinkish hue that looks great on every skin tone. You can invest in some real rose gold jewelry, or you can use rose gold as an inspiration when you do your hair or makeup.
Rose Gold Accessories
The current trend for rose gold was actually started by Cartier, the jeweler that first began selling this alloy long ago. Even though rose gold is technically pink, there is something warm and earthy about this metallic. You can choose to either go for an over the top girly look with your rose gold accessories and choose items that are set with white diamonds for a lot of pink and white bling, or you can go for a more modern look. Today's hottest rose gold accessories are a bit masculine in form, to counterbalance the pink shade. You can see examples of this in Marc Jacob's new Rose Gold Men's Style Watch or Eddie Borgo's Big Gold Cuff.
Rose Gold Cosmetics
If you don't have the cash to invest in any real rose gold, you should try out this trend with your makeup. The new rose gold inspired cosmetics look fantastic on every skin tone. They make you look flushed, healthy, and golden. In fact, according to professional makeup artist Fred Letailleur, Rose Gold Cosmetics are supposed to make you look like you just came back from a vacation in the desert or somewhere blindingly sunny. Some of these cosmetics are subtle enough to wear during the day, but if you want to make a statement, rose gold makeup looks great with black cocktail dresses at night.

Rose Gold Hair
At first, the idea of having pink hair may turn you off. Rose gold as a hair color is about to become extremely popular, though, and it's not pink. Usually, when you think of a mixture of red and blonde hair, you get strawberry blonde. Most strawberry blonde colors are red mixed with ash blonde. If you want rose gold colored hair, have your stylist mix a red and a honey blonde hair color. You'll end up with warm, golden blonde locks that have a hint of red to them.
