Beauty tips: rose gold is a supremely flattering look

Apply delicately to cheekbones, eyes and lips and make yourself a shining example.

That delicate pinkish glow, like blushing jewellery, was worn on eyes, cheeks and lips at Alberto Zambelli. Rose gold, most easily applied as a bronzing highlighter across the cheekbones, is a supremely flattering look. Mix a bit of blush into gold pigment to build your perfect eyeshadow, and finish with a shimmering lip.

Instagram is an incubator house for beauty trends, where people go to experiment. This month it’s all about pixelated make-up, shades of colour applied in little squared blocks to mimic the 8-bit pattern of early internet graphics. Search #pixelmakeup to get ahead.

No sweat

Natural deodorants take a while to get used to, so you’d better get started before summer kicks in. Try the new Ben & Anna solid deodorants (£9.95, benandanna.uk), which are certified natural, organic and vegan, and come in plastic-free packaging, too

Curls for less

Lidl has launched a range of hair tools (including a curling wand) with prices starting at £1.29 for its version of a Tangle Teezer.
