Our top picks for gold, silver and bronze beauty products
If you can’t go the Olympics, we’ll bring the Olympics to your beauty kit!
There’s no denying we’ve all caught Olympic fever with the Rio Olympics taking over our TVs, minds, and conversations right now. To celebrate all things gold, silver and bronze we’ve put together our list of favourite beauty products that will make your eyes pop, your skin glow, and your beauty routine feel like a winner.
It’s regal, elegant and complements most skin tones. Whether it’s on your face to add a radiant glow or on your nails, you can’t go wrong with gold.
Guerlain L’Or Radiance Primer: This makeup base is sprinkled with 24-carat gold flakes (yes, really!), which are dispersed throughout the hydrating gel. As well as imparting a healthy radiance to the complexion, it smooths and hydrates skin with a peachy scent to match.
Rimmel London Brow This Way Highlighter: The shimmery jumbo pencil enhances and lifts your brows by highlighting across the brow bone and arch. You can also double its use by highlighting the inner corners of your eye to brighten your peepers
Sally Hansen 18K Gold Hardener Polish: Also containing real gold flecks, this nail strengthening treatment hydrates and strengthens nails. It can be worn under or over a nail colour to create a subtle sparkle, or on its own for a shiny finish.
Even though it represents second place, there’s so much that’s number one about silver when it comes to beauty. Whether it’s using the properties of silver to cure skin conditions or working with the colour to enhance your eyes, we’re big fans.
Argentum Apothecary La Lotion Infinie Body Cream: This ultra hydrating, anti-ageing body cream is formulated with powerful silver hydrosol, which is a metallic element that has several antibiotic properties to soothe skin, including treating acne, psoriasis, rosacea and dull skin.
Mario Badescu Silver Powder: When mixed with water, this amazing powder turns into a paste that can be used as a face mask to helps unclog congested pores and prevent blackheads. Infused with a blend of calcium carbonate, kaolin and zinc oxide, it absorbs excess oil and promotes a healthier complexion.
Maybelline New York Color Tattoo 24HR Metal Cream Gel Shadow in Too Cool: This rich silver metallic colour can be used as an eyeliner or eyeshadow for a silky weightless finish. The pot of gel can be used to help make any eye colour pop with a long-lasting finish and vibrant glow.
Tom Ford Bronzing Powder: If you’re going to add any depth to your face, the Tom Ford Bronzing Powder is the perfect silky, lightweight bronzer. The formula contains a mineral blend of sunstone, amber and black tourmaline crystals combined with unique pigments to highlight the skin’s radiance. Simply blend with a fan brush for a flawless finish.
Urban Decay Naked Eyeshadow Palette: The palette of 12 neutral-to-bronze eyeshadows has every shade you could possibly need. We especialy love the velvety formulas that glide across the eyelid flawlessly.
Bondi Sands Self Tanning Foam: While the Olympics are smack-bang in the middle of our winter, it’s scorching hot in Rio right now, which means there’s plenty of bronzed body envy to be had.. This aloe vera-enriched and coconut-scented foam formula creates an even natural glowing tan, even on pale winter skin.
