HY­BRID METALLICS

Hong Kong Tatler - - Beauty -

Get a gor­geous glow this sea­son by adding a gilded touch to your make-up. Dior’s in­no­va­tive Ad­dict Fluid Shadow, from its au­tumn col­lec­tion, Cos­mopolité, con­tains a new light­weight liq­uid for­mula that Peter Philips (pic­tured above), the brand’s cre­ative di­rec­tor, de­scribes as giv­ing eye­lids “a screen of light.” The over­all ef­fect is mir­ror-like, with a mes­meris­ing mag­netic shim­mer that en­sures all eyes are on you. If you’re sparkle-shy, try the golden-brown Univers shade that flat­ters ev­ery skin tone with a sub­tle glim­mer.

Char­lotte Til­bury, the Bri­tish make-up artist to the stars, has in­tro­duced the new Eyes to Mes­merise line to her cos­met­ics range, avail­able via Net-a-porter. These lit­tle pots of shadow de­liver vivid lu­mi­nous colour with a long-wear­ing, non-crease for­mula that Til­bury says “blends like a dream”—she rec­om­mends ap­ply­ing with fin­gers for a soft day­time look or us­ing a slightly damp brush to in­ten­sify the fin­ish in the evenings. Try a com­bi­na­tion of Mona Lisa (a bur­nished bronze inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s mas­ter­piece) and Bette (a gleam­ing cho­co­late cre­ated in hon­our of screen icon Bette Davis) for a gor­geous smoky eye.

If you’re go­ing for gold, then why not ex­tend the gilded look to your fin­ger­tips. Try Chris­tian Louboutin’s re­cently launched Scarabée col­lec­tion, which fea­tures me­tal­lic nail lac­quers inspired by the iri­des­cent shell of the scarab bee­tle. As ever, the brand’s stylish pack­ag­ing is al­most as cov­etable as the colours. Bronze with flashes of green and blue, Scarabée III is pure au­tumn per­fec­tion. If a full man­i­cure seems too ex­trav­a­gant for the ev­ery­day, try ap­ply­ing the colour as French tips with a neu­tral nude base.
