Did 2016's Color of the Year Inspire This Beauty Trend?



As we look back at the beauty trends that ruled 2016, rose gold everything comes to mind instantly. And according to Pinterest, the gorgeous metallic-inspired hue was one of the top beauty trends of the year with "rose gold makeup" searches up 190% this year. The soft pink shade is luminous and universally flattering, making it a beauty no-brainer. Besides, Rose Quartz was Pantone's color of the year in 2016, so perhaps we all subconsciously embraced the rosy hue. Either way, we can all agree that rose gold ruled beauty trends—but there's one makeup product in particular that topped the repin charts. According to Allure, MAC Rose Gold Pigment ($22) was repinned over 54,000 times. The cult-favorite product is the perfect shade of loose powder to get creative with—it can be applied wet for a metallic eye shadow effect or lightly dusted on cheekbones for a subtle highlight.
