THERE AREN’T many shades that are universally flattering. Black, of course, but also, unexpectedly, gold. ‘Done well, gold make-up captivates,’ says international make-up artist Mel Arter.

Gold is diverse in what it offers, too. ‘ With a shift of the undertone, or a tweak of texture, gold can be subtle, extrovert, subversive, futuristic, classic or whatever,’ says Mel.
