Get Some Gold Sparkle

by Ellie Balfe
04th Aug 2014


Flattering and fabulous, get some precious metals into your beauty prep.

1. Bobbi Brown Glitter Nail Polish in Bare Peach, €14

This polish adds a light gold sparkle to nails, without being over the top. The light peach tone is super-flattering and it beats the ubiquitous cream in the style stakes too. It’s a pretty party on your fingertips.

2. Michael Kors Glam Bronze Powder, €45

Such things of beauty, these compacts are perfect for wedding-day bronzing. Containing a superb quality product within its golden case, it’s not just a chic exterior but will keep you glowing and shine-free all day long.

3. Memo Inl? Eau de Parfum €105 for 30ML

This French fragrance line is based on the concept of creating and preserving memories, so rather fitting for your wedding day. Inl? comprises jasmine, bergamot, mint and tea essences to give a light, dreamy fragrance.

4. Eve Lom Sheer Radiance Translucent Powder, €57

Iconic skin care brand Eve Lom have created a long-awaited makeup line to correspond with their brand ethos of perfectly glowing skin. This powder is reflective and lightweight, adding a lovely luminescence, while also helping to enhance moisturisation via fruit stem cell extracts.

5. Tom Ford Summer Eye and Cheek Compact, €82

This will make quite the dreamy addition to your beauty arsenal, with three beautiful shadows: a light taupe, a shimmery gold sparkle and a deep navy for lining the eye. Also housed within its luxurious white and gold casing are two blush tones in coral and nude. Seriously, this is all your makeup woes sorted, forever.

6. YSL Rouge Pur Couture Lustre Lipstick, €32

Nude lips look great on brides, but not so nude as to be invisible, of course. With all that white going on around you, it’s vital that all your facial features are well balanced. This tone (Rosa de saba) is pretty darned perfect and the gold casing is oh-so-lovely among your bridal beauty bits. One to covet.
