The spring runways were a parade of bold lipsticks, from Max Mara’s bright red lips, to Naeem Khan’s deep crimson pouts and Maison Margiela’s unforgettable ultra-matte magenta look. For maximum impact, line the lips impeccably before painting on a matte lip colour, keeping the rest of the face bare and luminous.

Update your eyeliner by taking your cue from the models at Fendi, who sported graphic winged eyeliners in a rich emerald shade. For everyday wear, opt for a matte olive eyeliner or up the luxe factor with a shimmery forest green hue for glamorous nights out. Keep Q-tips on hand to clean up any smudges for a precise finish.

Perfect for accentuating brown eyes, burgundy is a mix of brown and purple tones that is less dramatic than black but still packs more punch than neutrals. Sweep a maroon eyeshadow on your lids and slick on a complementary lipstick for an elegant, tone-on-tone effect.

Give the smoky eye a modern twist by layering on a metallic eyeshadow. This makes your eyes pop instantly as it adds depth for more defined eye contours. Start with a brown eyeshadow before pressing the metallic eyeshadow onto the centre of the lids, blending towards the inner corners. Finish with a sooty black liner and lashings of volumising mascara for a smouldering look.
