Swipe your skin and eyelids in a coat of gold this Autumn. We're facing a season sporting metallic surfaces, old Hollywood glamour and 70's glam rock, so if you want to be spot on in the blink of an eye, I have the one product that will sort you out for the rest of the year, and then some!
The Modern Mercury Illuminator from the Estée Lauder Autumn Collection is like a beautiful golden sand dune. The pure gold shimmer goes all the way down and is not just coated on the surface, and although it's a powder, it almost has a gel-like texture that melts into the skin. This is how you can use it:
- As a highlighter on your cheekbones and temples
- Coat your eyelids with a beautiful wash of gold (gold brings out ALL eye colours)
- Use it as a finishing touch to liven up a smoky eye or even a lipstick
- Bring out inner corner of your eyes and Cupid´s bow
- Add a touch to your collarbones
If I was to invest in one product this season, I'd put my money on this one, as it is bang on Autumn 2011 trend, but at the same time a timeless product which will still be relevant for Spring/Summer 2012. Go for pure gold cheekbones and eyes and break the harmony with several coats of black mascara, or compliment the golden eyes with a classic red pout for a glamorous evening look. It can be used in a trillion of ways and lasts forever and ever, and as the beholder of a female brain, I am not going to pretend that packaging doesn't play a big role either ;)
