Perfecting The Look : NEON
• Focus your colour on either the eyes or the lips. Both is too much!
• For eyes, citrus shades like yellow, lime green, and orange are great for summer.
• For lips, focus on orange, coral and bright pink tones.
• If you’re nervous, just draw a thin line of bright liner across your eyelid.

Perfecting The Look : NUDE
• Sometimes less is more, so go for minimal makeup to get the maximum effect.
• Use a luminiser to highlight your cheekbones.
• Go for blusher in peachy or gold tones.
• If you want to wear lipstick, choose a colour that’s close to your natural skin tone.
• Finish off the look with a clear mascara.
