Pulled-back hair

Office types may not get your stylish hairband, so save it for shopping with your mates. Sweep it into a topknot on days when it’s not washed.

Lovely cheeks

Pink blush makes cheekbones pop and looks flattering on everyone—but don’t scare them with a heavy dose, doubly intensified by a bright lip colour; switch to pale pink instead.

Shimmery eyes

Metallic eyeshadow is a smash hit this season, but a touch of champagne on the inner corners of your eyes is perfect for daytime wear.

Intense eyes

We saw dramatic blocks of colour swept across eyelids in all sorts of shades, but rimming your eyes with a thick, dark pencil is plenty of drama for most occasions.

Bright lips

Near-fluorescent lips look sensational in our opinion, but some may find it blinding. Try a glossy, sheer version that’s not quite so bright, paired with a dewy complexion.
