Gold rush

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 [1] 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 [5] 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 [2] 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. Œ Rim your eye with black liq­uid liner and brush a shim­mery gold eye­shadow around it. We love [3] May­belline New York Mas­ter Ink Satin (R129.95) and [4] 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.
