Trend To Try: Touch Of Topaz

FIND your inner bronzed desert princess.

JEWEL coloured make-up, whether it be eyeshadow or lipstick, come in all shades that flatter every skin tone, whether worn lightly or applied with a heavy hand. It is however best to keep the rest of your make-up palette subtle. We suggest a glossy lip and very light blush in most cases to compliment these intense shades. Take a look at our tips on how to wear brilliant bronzy make-up every day.


A great way to subtly glow like a topaz? Lots of gold powder highlighter and a hint of rose gold or soft nude lipstick. Or make eyes pop with a hint of gold in the inner corners of the eyes. If your gold eyeshadow look appears to be too OTT, combine neutrals like brown to minimise the dramatics.
