With her molten gold dress, liquid caramel highlights and gleaming bronze eyes and cheeks, there wasnt one bit of Leighton Meesters New York Fashion week look that didnt melt beautifully into the rest.
But she doesnt just look polished here, shes on-trend, too. Ive spoken to a lot of make-up artists since fashion month started and a smoky bronze eye teamed with gently glowing skin is definitely a key look this season. Its gorgeous and glamorous, gushed Charlotte Tilbury. It makes every eye colour glow, said Terry Barber.
Tempted? Start by (lightly) lining eyes with a bright brown, such as Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Bronze Shimmer Ink or Chocolate Shimmer Ink, £13.21 each. Then layer a copper tone, such as Guerlains Eyeshadow in LInstant Cuir, £17.61, over a cool golden shade (try MAC Eyeshadow in Goldmine, £9.79). Blend the colours over your eyelids and through the sockets and itll give a pretty burnished light to the rest of your face.
But keep sheen on eyes only. For cheeks, mix pink and brown for a soft, warm glow or, if youre saving the look for summer, try it with Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Sunblush Illuminator, £25, which will be available from May. Its an irresistible pinky-bronze.
On lips, Estée Lauder Pure Colour Lipstick in Honey Pink, £14.68, is the perfect pinky-brown. Or try Estée Lauder Signature Hydra Lustre Lipstick in Burnished Bronze, £14.68. Prep lips with plenty of balm, then layer on the lipstick with a bit more balm till the textures juicy and the colours just how you like it.
