This summer, think of your face as a kinetic Pinterest board, one on which to play out all your fancy-dress fantasies. Don’t worry – they need go no lower than your chin. Now is the time to stick diamonds on your eyebrows and dance around an Essex field at dawn. Now is the time to paint your cheeks in primary colours and tell the man who sold you overpriced fags you love him. On the Givenchy catwalk, they stuck halved sequins to the models’ eyelids and at Chanel they glued pearls down their necks. Everywhere else they painted gold leaf on to hair and eyes and had a bit of a laugh. For a wanton “fairy gone wild” look, experiment with glitter and Vaseline on the cheekbones. If you want to go more sophis, try MAC’s Old Gold Pigment (17, maccosmetics.co.uk).
