BRIGHTEN YOUR LOOK ON A BUDGET
Bourjois Paris Bubble Chic So Laque Ultra Shine Nail Enamel Collection, £5.99, Boots and Superdrug.
Your nails are the safest place to start playing with colour. We really can’t resist a bold-as-brass manicure, and this new collection gives you five great shades to make a statement with! Choose from two pastel colours, Rosé Merveille and Abricot Ouaté, and three acid-brights, Bleu Fabuleux, Vert Chlorophylle and Rose Imaginaire. Don’t forget to wear a base coat to stop the colour staining your nails.
Jemma Kidd Blushwear Crème Cheek Colour in Guava, £13 (www.feelunique.com)
Summertime calls for pretty pink cheeks to give you a lovely ‘outdoorsy’ glow. Use a cream blush instead of powder for a more natural, dewy finish and dab onto the apples of your cheeks, blending well. Our fave is this one by Jemma Kidd, which melts into the skin really easily for a super-natural look.
Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm, £16 (www.clinique.co.uk)
Is there anything more gorgeous than sexy red lips? Yes. Sexy pink ones! If you’re wary of bold colours, start with something sheer to build up your nerve. The Clinique Chubby Sticks are quite simply fabulous, with their ultra-nourishing formula and easy application. Our favourite shade is Woppin’ Watermelon, for a perfect unashamedly pink colour-pop!
MUA Poptastic Eyeshadow Palette, £4, Superdrug
Bored of neutral eye shadows and an eyeliner flick? Why not ring the changes with some bright shadows? This eyeshadow palette is cheap and, with these amazing colours, definitely cheerful! If the colours look a bit bright and terrifying, use a liner brush dipped in water for a striking alternative to black eyeliner.
