Go bold with a red lip by using a matching lip liner and filling in with a liquid lipstick. Team with a daring eyeshadow. ‘Purple and red work so well,’ says make-up artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis, who created our beautiful looks. ‘A shimmery eye can be amazing – and to really clash it up, add a blue mani.’
When the sun’s out, it’s time to add gold to your look. ‘This colour isn’t just for Christmas,’ says Lan. ‘Sweep it all over your lids to create extra drama, then dab a non-greasy, multi-purpose balm on top for a glossy effect.’ Keep lips matte and in a nude tone, which will make your eyes stand out.
‘An orange lip screams summer,’ says Lan. But don’t stop there with the drama; wear it with shades of seaside blue on eyes and nails. Not only do they complement each other perfectly, but the blue will make the lipstick pop even more.
You don’t need to wear a lot of colour to make a statement: just one striking shade, strategically placed, can have a big impact. So switch up your regular eyeliner and go bright. ‘Turquoise works on all skin tones and with every eye colour. I want people to wear it more!’ says Lan. And on lips? ‘A bubblegum pink is the ideal final touch.’
