Copper & Rose Gold Essentials

Copper & Rose Gold Favourites

| Copper & Rose Gold Essentials! | 


Copper and rose gold have taken the world by a storm and I must admit that I've well and truly jumped on this bandwagon. I was aware that I owned quite a few rose gold and copper pieces but it wasn't until I laid them all out for this flatlay that I truly realised how much I owned *Oops* So let's delve into my rose gold and copper stash today....

Homeware |
Copper homeware has the ability to transform the look of an entire room as it provides a warm, feminine touch. The copper centrepiece of my room is the white cushion with the copper decals printed on it above. I bought this in Penneys/Primark a few months ago so I doubt they have it in stock anymore but I found this copper & white cushion on Etsy which is just as beautiful. 

Another focal point of my bedroom is my vanity table so injecting a bit of copper to the piece is an important aspect of my decor. The copper fairy lights from Penneys inject a bit of colour and texture to the vanity. To do this I applied one of those sticky back hooks to the back of the mirror and draped the wire of the lights on the hook. It's a really simple trick that I've not seen anywhere online and I have my Mam to thank for the genius idea! 

My Bath & Body Works 'Autumn' candle that has a copper lid and my copper tumblers also live on my vanity table. I always get asked where the little tumblers are from on Instagram and they're from a small shop called Article in Dublin, but there's loads of similar ones on Etsy like this set for example. 

I also have a small round copper tray from Dunnes Stores with little hearts cut into it. At the moment I have this sitting on my windowsill with a Yankee Candle in it but I'm thinking of jigging this setup around a bit. It would be ideal for holding perfumes too! 

Rose gold makeup

The most iconic brand in terms of packaging is without a doubt, Charlotte Tilbury. Each of her products is housed in beautiful rose gold and brown packaging, making the brand instantly recognisable. I have both of her foundations which each have an understated bottle paired with a rose gold lid, giving both products a classic elegant look. I usually reach for the Light Wonder foundation when I want a light base that's quick and effortless to apply. The Magic foundation {review} is my most used option as the medium-full coverage finish is perfect for covering my imperfections and blemish scarring. 

I love using highlighting concealer pens for underneath my eyes and one of my all time favourites is the L'oreal Lumi Magique concealer. This is a life-saver for early mornings as it adds radiance and the pink undertones counteract the colour of dark circles which tend to be more prominent on early mornings. 

I have three rose gold lipsticks in my collection: Charlotte Tilbury 'Kidman's Kiss' {review}Kiko Gossamer Emotion Creamy Lipstick in '102' {review} and Rosie For Autograph Lipstick in 'Silk Rose'. The CT offering is a light peachy pink shade and the creamy matte formula is comfortable to wear. The Rosie For Autograph option is a dark nude whilst the Kiko lipstick is a muted nude pink with a sweet vanilla scent that could rival that of Mac. 

As for palettes, I own three rose gold ones: Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Palette, Rosie For Autograph eyeshadow palette in 'Copper Gold Rush'  and the latest addition to my collection, the Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette. The CT palette and the Rosie palette are both quads containing four warm-toned hues with a mix of matte and shimmer shades. They both contain a light shade, a dark shade as well as a statement shadow that adds a pop of colour to the look, so you have everything you could possibly need to create a nice look in one small compact palette. The UD offering is an all matte palette that has a variety of different shades from light browns, to burgundy to burnt orange so it's perfect for creating both natural daytime looks as well as statement evening looks.

Rose gold makeup brushes

Lifestyle |
I couldn't own all of that rose gold packaged makeup without owning some rose gold brushes to apply it with *insert winking emoji* Zoeva are famous for their rose golden luxury set and it's easy to see why! The quality of the brushes is incredible; They feel very soft and they work well. There isn't a brush in the set that I don't use and of course, they look picturesque on my vanity table too! 

If you want an affordable option of rose gold brushes then Penneys has you covered. I adore the double-ended powder brush as the bigger side allows me to powder my whole face whilst the smaller side is great for precise application around the under eye area. They have a wide range of brushes from eyeshadow brushes to a brow brush to face brushes. They work just as well as expensive brushes but the only downside is the handle becomes loose after a few months use but it's still usable so that's the most important thing. 

Another Penneys gem is their marble & rose gold notebook. They have a lot of marble and rose gold stationary available at the moment but this was my favourite thing out of the range as it looks classic and minimal compared to the other options. 

Spotify is a daily essential of mine and to listen to my favourite playlists I always use my rose gold headphones from H&M. They're a fraction of the price of the Frends headphones, the sound is good quality and they're comfortable to wear. What more could you ask for!

I don't know about you but I couldn't go a day without my phone and so when I realised that the iPhone 6 came in a rose-gold/ pink shade I couldn't resist getting it. My phone needed to be upgraded as it wasn't working properly so I was delighted to get this beautiful phone! It's much prettier than my ugly black one that I had previously, haha! I've had it for a year now and I'm still completely in love with it *insert love heart eye emoji*

Rose gold Tiffany's necklace

Jewellery & Sunglasses |
When I was fifteen my family and I went to NYC for New Year's Eve. I wasn't really into makeup back then but I'd wanted to buy something from Tiffany's ever since I saw Breakfast at Tiffany's, so the majority of my spending money for the trip was saved for my Tiffany's purchase. Rose gold wasn't really a 'thing' back then but for some reason, I lusted after a dainty rose gold necklace, and when I spotted this rose gold heart necklace in Tiffany's I knew it was meant to be. I love that it says "return to Tiffany & Co New York" as it's my little token of hope to return to New York someday. 

Another jewellery favourite is my Pandora rose gold bow ring that my sister got me for my 18th birthday. This is my most worn piece of jewellery as it compliments almost everything in my wardrobe. My favourite colour combination to pair it with is pink and grey as the dainty feminine ring complements the look. 

I own two pairs of rose gold sunglasses but my favourite of the two is this Ray-ban clubmaster style pair from New Look. I got them a few years ago now so they don't have them in stock anymore, unfortunately, but there are loads of gorgeous rose gold sunglasses available on the high street as well as high-end brands. I love this style of sunglasses as it flatters my face shape the most.
