Say hello to Spring and light up your skin with radiant golden highlights.

It’s time to pack away your dark contouring powders and embrace luminosity using golden products in clever ways. At the Off White show at Paris Fashion Week Makeup artist for L’Oréal Paris, Tom Pecheux, proved that look-at-me metallics aren’t just for lips. He paired a bare-faced look with the new Color Riche Gold Obsession Lipstick in Pure Gold (€11.99) – infused with 24-carat gold-coated pigments – using it on cheeks and eyelids as well as lips to create a perfect golden glow. “The idea was to play with gold, gloss and nude colours to get a very natural mood focused on the light.”
