Going For Gold

Fendi SS12

Shades of liquid gold, glistened and gleamed across eyes, lips and limbs thoroughly sun-drenching the SS12 catwalks. From the sexy and smouldering to the more earthen and honeyed, golden tones proved a truly winning look. At Mark Fast a two-tone blend of antique and yellow golds encircled eyes, at Marc by Marc Jacobs, faces beamed with a beautiful blend of pinky-golden lights that were daubed over cheeks and across eyes whilst over at over at Fendi and DSquared, gold was galvanised, lacquered and 3-dimensional with lashings of glitter and gold-leaf embellishing eyes.

Lips should be lustrous and lacquered. Tom Ford Lip Lacquer in Gold Dust £25 blends highly pearlised particles with a long-wearing gloss for a gilded pout. Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in Gold Sunrise £21 acts as the perfect gold-infused top coat, adding a summery shimmer to your favourite lipstick shade.

For day keep eyes muted and creamy in consistency.Maybelline 24 Hour Colour Tattoo Eyeshadow in Eternal Gold £4.99, offers a velvety haze of golden glow to eyes. For evenings you can really go for gold. Blend a highly pigmented, iridescent antique gold over the lid, into the eye socket and below the lash line before lining eyes in a black kohl, or be daring and opt for navy, which offsets the gold with a more modern twist. We adore Inika Mineral Eyeshadow in Gold Dust £11.75 for it’s luxuriously rich pigments and deep, multi-tonal colour. Or forego eyeshadow entirely and simply line mascara-laden eyes with Lush Cosmetics Liquid Eyeliner in Fantasy £14.50 for a no-smudge fine-line formula that sets to a pure, unadulterated gold.

Benefit Sunbeam £18.50 imparts a honeyed highlight across cheekbones in just a few easy sweeps, not forgetting to slick down the centre of the nose, over the cupid’s bow and up towards temples for a sun-swept complexion.

Gold-plated nails are the perfect accompaniment to tanned hands, we love the liquid gold look of Dolce & Gabbana Intense Nail Lacquer in Gold £18.
