Gilded lids

If taupes and tawny tones are your go-to, trade them in for spring’s new neutral – gold, seen at the Kate Spade SS19 show. Pump up your pigment by priming lids, then sweep on gold shadow up to the brow bone. Finish with a single coat of mascara and brushed-up brows for definition and drama

Gold flush

a matte bronzer for added pop.

Midas touch

Embellished nails (as seen at the Libertine show) too much to try at home? Switch up your French mani by swapping white for gold touches. Paint nails a nude that suits your skin tone, then use the side of the nail polish brush to trace tips with bands of gold.

Silence is golden

Move over velvet and gloss, foil is the new lip finish, as seen at American designer Jeremy Scott’s show. Outline and fill in lips with a metallic gloss, then press on pigment for a gold-plated effect. Keep skin
