Gold hues made for some striking backstage beauty looks. Invest now, as this is one trend which isn’t going away anytime soon
Halpern channelled Studio 54 glamour with a generous smattering of gold leaf across model’s eyelids for AW19.
Ashish went all out with sequins around the eyes, and lips which looked like they’d been coated in Vaseline and plunged into a pot of glitter. Elsewhere, Michael Kors and Stella Jean championed a more subtle, bronze smoky eye.
Rich coppers, yellow and rose gold pigments all made appearances which means, thankfully, there’s something for every skin tone. From eye shadows to highlighters and nail polishes, you can embrace the trend in so many ways.
There’s been so much innovation to ensure easy wearability, too. Beauty products have been formulated to create maximum impact with minimum effort, with things like glosses and gel powders being able to be used across lips, eyes and cheeks to add glow, shimmer and shine.
Chantecaille has a new and unique gel-to-powder formula that glides on and delivers a smooth coating of colour.
Charlotte Tilbury uses water-infused formulas containing nourishing Vitamin E which promise to last and not to dry out. The light reflecting pigments also immediately brighten.
Marc Jacobs uses scores of metallic pigments to create sheen, and Guerlain’s l’Or is sprinkled with 24-carat gold flakes for ultra-sparkling and radiant skin.
So, if you’re after a dazzling beauty look for the party season, look no further. We’ve rounded up our top 10 beauty products which will ensure you achieve that molten metal effect.
