  • Blue, green, pink, orange, gold and red are the key colors this season. Why not try a couple and see which ones suit your skin tone best.
  • For a subtle look for the daytime, use a lighter colour eye shadow and combine this with a bronzer for the face and a clear lip-gloss to finish.
  • For a stronger more defined look, you could play around with eyeliners and bold colours such as hot pink, orange or red. Red lipstick has always been in fashion and if used well can be the perfect touch to your outfit for a sophisticated look.
