As summer approaches, beauty is about to open the golden gates that lead to a land of shimmer and sparkle, where everyone has a radiant glow.
To give a sexy but subtle finish to faces, there’s Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Illuminating Powder Gelée in ‘Heat Wave’, a powder-gel hybrid that builds easily, allowing you to go for a gentle flush, to a highly pearlised finish.
For a golden glow on cheeks, Nars Cream Blush in ‘Gold Member’ is one to try. It’s an easy-to-blend cream to powder blush that gives a gentle brightening effect, looks natural and stays put all day.
For eyes that sparkle, try YSL Baby Doll eyeliner in ‘Golden Reflections’, a surprisingly easy to apply liquid liner that glides on for an instant hit of glamour.
Or for a 24 carat daytime look, there’s Chanel Illusion D’Ombre eyeshadow in ‘Convoitise’, a long-lasting luxe option that can be applied wet or dry, depending on how intense you want your colour to be.
To give some sparkle to your nails, go for L’Oréal Paris Color Riche Top Coat in ‘Gold Lurex’. An affordable way to add a little va-va-voom to your manicure, this can be applied over any nail varnish for an instant wash of gold.
