Gold has long been a glim­mer­ing bea­con of op­u­lence and grandeur. It is the very em­bod­i­ment of roy­alty and riches, ex­trav­a­gance and ex­cess, vic­tory and tri­umph. Its abil­ity to in­trigue and mes­merise all who gaze upon it has sparked a great deal of in­spi­ra­tion on this sea­son's run­ways, and need­less to say, we have fallen un­der its be­witch­ing spell. Go­ing the ul­ti­mate gold route were Akris and Ulla John­son, with gilded eye­lids, flaw­less hy­per­real skin and glossy lips. The for­mer cre­ated depth on the eyes by ap­ply­ing a quiet wash of aubergine un­der the scat­tered lay­ers of yel­low gold leaf, and lin­ing the wa­ter­line with a black kohl pen­cil. Tadashi Shoji com­bined vin­tage Hol­ly­wood glam­our with mod­ern tex­tures by pair­ing metal­lic gold eyes with a juicy red­cur­rant pout. Fash­ion East also went for vin­tage vibes, but kept the fo­cus on the lips with a bril­liant shade of bur­nished gold. Chan­nelling punk rock chic, Jill Stu­art sported a smoky haze of metal­lic gold and bronze. Al­ter­na­tively, Pamella Roland ap­plied a shim­mery gold shade onto the in­ner two thirds of the eye­lids and en­hanced the socket line with a soft smidgen of black eye­shadow. For a more wear­able ver­sion of the gilded look, take your cue from Cush­nie et Ochs’ golden in­ner high­lights, worn with matte bur­gundy-stained lips, or Alice Mc­Call’s sheer splash of cham­pagne gold right on top of the eye­lids. We es­pe­cially liked Os­car de la Renta’s use of gold glit­ter, ap­plied right along the cen­tre of the top and bot­tom lash line. Since gold is such a state­ment shade all on its own, the trick to main­tain­ing el­e­gance is to keep the rest of your makeup sim­ple and sleek.
