Having caught the catwalk’s latest look, Belle About Town’s brings you our top 5 champagne-coloured beauty buys, to give you the right amount of shimmer and shine without leaving you looking like an Academy Award!
Shimmer: Illuminate your natural beauty with Laura Geller’s swirl highlighter, £21, in the shade ‘gilded honey’. It’s innovative texture applies like a sheer powder but feels like a cream – which creates a translucent wash of luminous colour. It can be swept all over the face to leave a lovely champagne toned shimmer. But it from Debenhams
Lips: Try the Gloss Lip Crayon by Burt’s Bees in the shade ‘outback oasis’ to add a gentle pink champagne shimmer on your pout. This long- wearing formula glides on effortlessly. It is ultra-hydrating as it is enriched with a nourishing blend of Kendi Oil, Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil. The chubby crayon softens and protects, whilst infusing lips with eight-hour moisture to leave them smooth, supple and comfortable. Best of all no sharpening required – all you do is twist the bottom to release more product. Buy it from Feel Unique
Nails: Try Deborah Lippmann’s ‘Diamonds & Pearls’ Nail Polish, £16, if you want stunning nails. This iridescent colour glides on evenly and effortlessly. It also dries quickly for a long-lasting, and truly professional finish. Be sure to roll it gently between your palms before using it. And for best results, use a base coat and top coat. You can wear it alone or layer it over a darker shade to add a lovely shimmer. This glimmering pink-gold shade was used on actress Reese Witherspoon on the night she won her Oscar.
