Gilded eyes

If this isn’t per­fect in­spi­ra­tion for your next night out, we don’t know what will be. Worn in any quan­tity you wish. Just go for it…

1 Start by giv­ing your skin a glow by mix­ing a dewy foun­da­tion with a high­light­ing cream and gen­tly buff on to the skin. 2 Ap­ply a light wash of gold eye­shadow – we like L’oréal Mono Eye­shadow Gold Ma­nia – to your lids to cre­ate a sub­tle shim­mer. Then ap­ply a small amount of lip balm to the in­ner cor­ners of your eyes. 3 Us­ing tweez­ers, ap­ply gold leaf in small parts and build up on each cor­ner so you keep each eye look­ing as sim­i­lar as pos­si­ble. Don’t use fin­gers as gold leaf sticks to skin. 4 Now you can choose how much more make-up you’ll need. We ad­vise just a lit­tle mas­cara and a light colour on the lips, but this step is com­pletely up to you.
