If the summer’s not going to come to the UK this year, it’s up to us to recreate the glowing, sun-kissed, ‘just-off-the-beach’ look ourselves.
This summer is all about shimmering golden skin, lips and eyes. Think Goldfinger from James Bond and Dior’s gold campaign with Charlize Theron.
The catwalks this season were drenched in dazzling bling, with Michael Kors and MaxMara showcasing desert tans with heavy burnt-sienna bronzer streaked across cheeks, jawlines and temples to add structure to the face. Here in London, make-up artist Kay Montano adorned her models with the ‘sunburn in Rio’ look – super dark tans with pink cheeks and glossy hair.
Now you can create the illusion of being a regular jet-setter yourself by building your own collection of glittering new products.
Ever wished you had the high cheekbones and chiselled jawline of a super-model? Well now you can with NEW! Revlon Photoready Bronzer – perfect for adding definition and structure to the face. This four-tone bronzer is great fun for experimenting with different looks. Layer on the darker shades for a sun-kissed holiday illusion and blend for an even, natural finish.

If you thought wearing gold lipstick was one step too far into Bowie nostalgia, think again. You’ll be right on trend with shimmery space-age lips this summer, so be brave and step out in a glittering shade of gold. We recommend Avon Ultra Colour Rich 24K Gold lipstick, a smooth creamy stick infused with real 24K gold particles for a luxury shimmer. This luxury lipstick comes at an impressively low price too, at £8.50 per pot.

Another rising trend this season is matching lips and nails. So why not team your golden pout with golden talons? The brand making headlines in the beauty industry this week is Rococo Gold Leaf Nail Varnish. Taking inspiration from the ‘elegant splendour of 18th century Versailles, Rococo Nail Apparel’s new varnish contains big flecks of 24K gold leaf for a shimmering, sophisticated look.
