Three ways to style this season’s most brilliant shade. Go for shimmery eyes, bronzed skin, shiny nails and casual curls. Two golds are better than one when you want to woo.
Dot gold shadow on the inner corners of your eyes. Sweep bronzer over your cheeks, on the bridge of the nose and around your hairline. TRY  Dolce & Gabbana Glow Bronzing Powder in Sunshine (R880). For waves, hold your curling iron vertically, wrapping random sections of hair around the barrel. Leave out the ends. Finish with  LCN Chromatic Nail Polish (R120). Use a delicate white gold on your eyelids and a deeper golden bronze in the creases for soft definition. We love  M·A·C Mineralize Eye Shadow Quad in A Glimmer of Gold (R535). For luminous skin, tap a champagne-coloured highlighter on the cheekbones, down the nose and along your Cupid’s bow. Add bright-gold accessories to play off the sheen on your eyes and cheeks. Try this glam-rock take on the cat eye. Rim your eye with black liquid liner and brush a shimmery gold eyeshadow around it. We love  Maybelline New York Master Ink Satin (R129.95) and  Flormar Terracotta Diamond Eye Shadow in Golden Eyes (R199). All of the attention is on your eyes, so groom your brows. As for the rest of your makeup, keep it fresh (all you need is concealer and lip balm). Pairing gold makeup with loose, air-dried hair is like wearing a cocktail dress with a leather jacket – totally unexpected, very cool and completely irresistible.
