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, boots.com

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, boots.com

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, liberty.co.uk

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, houseoffraser.co.uk

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, debenhams.com

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.
