  • Art Stick in Hot Berry, £20, Bobbi Brown

    Choose a matte fuchsia lipstick for the perfect mix of pink and blue tones to bolster pale skin without looking dated. (

  • Vernis in 302 Garden, £19, Dior

    This milky take on lime looks so much cooler and unexpected on nails than standard brights. (

  • Magnif’Eyes Shadow and Liner in Dark Side of Blue, £6.99, Rimmel London

    Cobalt eyeliner is less shocking when worn as a bold cat’s eye flick. (

  • Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils in Hippie Green, £25, YSL Beauté

    Teal is the LBD of mascaras: it flatters all eye colours by counteracting redness. (

  • Colour Performance Cheeks, £29, RMK

    These two graduated shades do more than just create a healthy flush. Highlight cheekbones with the lighter pink shade and contour with the bright. (

  • Marilyn Monroe Lipstick in Sunset Red, £7.99, Max Factor

    Tonal red lipstick will be everywhere in s/s 2016 and this burnt orange shade is a spot-on match for olive skintones. (

  • Ombre Couture in Jaune Aurora, £18, Givenchy

    This bright, sunny yellow looks best swept over lids with a brush in a sharp, thick line. (

  • Ultra HD Lip Lacquer in Tourmaline, £7.99, Revlon

    There’s no danger of this bright pink shade looking saccharine; it’s so vivid, it’s more Eighties punk than Barbie. (

  • Baume de Rose in Mauve Moon, £33.50, By Terry

    This lilac lip balm looks intimidating, but goes on sheer, making it surprisingly wearable on darker skin. (

  • Dual-Intensity Eyeshadow in Cressida, £21, Nars

    A delicate wash of electric blue around the eyes can appear almost like watercolour. (

  • Gel Lab Pro in The Pleasure Principle, £18, Deborah Lippmann

    The formula creates the same high-gloss finish of a gel mani and is fully opaque, so there’s nothing streaky about it. (

  • Balm & Blush in Flirty Pink, £4.99, Maybelline

    Rather than sit on top of the skin, this rosy wash of colour seems to be part of it. (

  • Hi-Def Cyan Ultra Chromaline, £16, MAC

    As seen at Issey Miyake and Missoni, this has all the graphic benefits of an acid bright eyeliner in a tiny paint pot. Wear with attitude. (

  • Sunkiss Ribbon blush, £44, Chanel

    This fuchsia and coral blusher is the closest winter skin will get to a sun-kissed glow.(

  • Nail Polish in Skinny Dippin’, £11, Leighton Denny

    Slick this deep sea-green polish on sporty, short nails for a bold spring look. (

  • Lipstick in Sun kissed, £14, Paul & Joe

    Like red lipstick’s cooler, younger sister, coral lipstick looks best when dewy. Pair with mascara and nothing else.
