Turn eye-defining makeup on its head and draw attention to your peepers with freehand creativity—dots are the easiest way to start. Balance that with a power pout in a fiery coral shade such as Rouge Dior Ultra Rouge lipstick in 651 Ultra Fire.

Yellow has been popping up all over the makeup scene lately, and it’s a surprisingly flattering eyeshadow shade for every skin tone. Define your eyes with Too Faced’s Sketch Marker Liquid Art Eyeliner’s saturated hues, before adding Shu Uemura’s Pressed Eyeshadow in 351 Shimmer Yellow to set the look. Contrast that sunny colour with a deep, decadent magenta on the lips, like Tom Ford Beauty’s Lip Lacquer Luxe Matte in Beaujolais.

Flex your creative muscle with freestyle finger application. Formulas today are so sophisticated that they take on different textures when applied to the skin. Try innovative formulas that are changing the eyeshadow game, like Jill Stuart’s Jelly Eye Colour and Butter London’s Glazen Eye Gloss. For more dimension, pick a metallic formula or simply add a touch of Natasha Denona’s Duo Chrome Top Coat to the centre of your lids and lips for extra shine.

Nothing gives a more youthful lift to the face than fresh, flushed cheeks. For a pigmented, dramatic look, double up with a cream and powder blush combination like Shiseido’s WhippedPowder Blush and Laura Mercier’s Blush Colour Infusion. For a more natural glow, reach for a gel-like blush like 3CE’s Blush Cushion or Lancôme’s Cushion Blush Subtil, both of which melt into skin to create a dewy rosiness that seems to come from within. Drag any excess product on your brush or sponge across the nose for a sun-kissed touch.
