Beauty: Going for gold


1. Spun Gold Shape + Shine Balm

Add a little balm to your hair to give it a golden sheen.

£5.09, John Frieda,

2. Nail enamel in Gold Coin

Get the golden touch with this metallic polish. You could even go for Bronze and Silver to get in the medal spirit.

£6.49, Revlon,

3. Nano Gold Firming Treatment

Not your average moisturiser – this pricey product is formulated with gold particles as well as antioxidants and collagen-boosting extracts.

£280, Chantecaille,

4. Shimmering Cream eye colour in GD803

Achieve an iridescent eye by using a cream colour rather than powder. This works best in a metallic finish as the light pigments reflect.

£20.50, Shiseido,

5. Radiance Concentrate with Pure Gold

For a luminous glow to skin, apply this base infused with 24-carat gold, which aims to give an even finish.

£42, Guerlain,

6. 24/7 Waterproof liquid eyeliner in Eldorado

Why not experiment and try a golden liquid liner? It's surprisingly subtle when used thinly, adding just a sparkle.

£14, Urban Decay,
