Beauty tips: old gold, for the perfect party look


This is the classiest party look you’ll find all year: gold, but gold that’s been burned round the edges and left on the radiator overnight. We’ll call it old gold, though Charlotte Tilbury, for Temperley London, described it as “a glossy, all-over superstar-lit glow”. Go for hydrated skin, a decent primer, then smoky bronzes on eyes and bold highlighter everywhere else.

Pocket rocket

It’s small enough to carry everywhere, it’s clicky enough (like a spangly Touche Eclat) to become addictive, and it smells like heaven. YSL’s Black Opium Click & Go Eau De Parfum, £29, is available nationwide this week.

Making scents

New perfume brand Hermetica has launched with a collection of 13 alcohol-free fragrances that smell of the future. Complete their fragrance test at hermetica.com for a sample of whichever one is recommended for you.

Safety first

Beauticians have been banned from joining a new register designed to make getting injectable fillers safer. A voluntary register opened by the Joint Council for Cosmetic Practitioners will only include those with medical training. It’s a step towards regulating a dangerous industry.
