Gold Rush

Harrods magazine has just published this beauty story, All That Glistens, photographed by David Ferrua, featuring model Valerija Sestic and written by Jan Masters.


I’ve been discussing the use of gold in makeup with my assistants, Hannah and Lucy, who say that it’s brilliant for ‘saving’ a look, eg if the eye makeup is too heavy or loses control. With the party season upon us, it’s also ideal for adding glamour and glitz.

For this beauty story, I mainly used CHANEL products, particularly the Christmas collection and my favourite foundation, Perfection Lumiere Velvet, with illumination provided by CHANEL Soleil Tan De Chanel. Other products I enjoyed using:
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Or Multi-Usage Dry Oil Golden Shimmer, By Terry Ombre Black Star in Beyond Gold, Gold Leaf by Julia Townend
and MAC Glitter in 3D Gold and Maybelline NY Color Tattoo in Eternal Gold.
