Pucker up buttercup!

Pink has never been hotter: from Fuchsia, a red carpet favourite for Julianne Moore, to bubble gum shades for Nicki Minaj and pretty in pink 90s rose Emma Watson, these romantic hues are huge for spring to add a healthy glow.Kendall Jenner even has her own shade courtesy of Estee Lauder! 

This hot to trot look can be rocked either on a bare-as-you-dare face or with corresponding eye shadows and blushes for a full monochromatic look. Multi-use makeup is big news. Tie it all together with the same blush and lip tone adding the same colouring for the eyes.

Orange is making a strong comeback. Bold statement shades that are super-pigmented are being rocked in tangerine by Jessica Alba and look amazing with naturally glowing skin for a truly tropical feel.

Movie icons like Marilyn Monroe were never seen without scarlet lips.  In recent years, Dita Von Teese has established this as her signature style.  For those of us looking to hit the right note in 2017, think ‘no-makeup makeup’ with flawless fresh skin and minimal eye makeup for a no-fail combination. Jennifer Lawrence is spot on with her true crimson shade!

Glitter and gloss are bang on trend this spring.  From sparkle-infused glosses to a reflective finish in any shade from nude to pink, the matte movement is well and truly over. Gloss adds dimension, shine and a youthful glow. With or without lipstick, glittery top coats provide a subtle yet mesmerising sheen.

For drama on your big date consider dimensional lips.  Statement lips have been taken to a whole new level on the runway using ombre effects and overlays of glitter.  To get the look layer a base of satiny lipstick with a dab of high-glitter gloss right in the centre of your lips. 

For those seeking a more natural look nude is still being rocked in style by Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian and Julia Roberts.
