1. Doll Face
As seen at: Costume National, Altuzarra and Emilio Pucci
All about big lashes and statement liner, this is a style that spans the decades. From Twiggy’s doll eyes to Kim K’s look-at-me lashes, all you need is a good black eyeliner and a voluminous mascara to help build up that extreme finish.

2. Sleep, Rave, Repeat
As seen at: Antonio Marras, Lulu & Co and Max Mara
Dubbed ‘Free Party’ by MAC’s make-up gurus, this carefree playful look will inject a rainbow of colour to your new-season cosmetics bag. Let your mantra be ‘mix and don’t match’ as aquatic hues for eyes meet pretty bold pinks for your lips.

3. High Shine
Miyake and Missoni
If there’s one product you need to invest in this season it’s a shiny new highlighter. Described as clean, calm and spiritual, think less sci-fi and more angelic – it’s about creating light in the complexion with both shimmering powders and glossy high-shine eyelids.

4. No Make-up
As seen at: Peter Pilotto, Preen and Balmain
Ironically one of the most particular trends of the season, nothingness most certainly doesn’t mean laziness. From the bare-skin look to a sun-kissed glow, skin should be clean and not overly worked-on while concealer is most definitely king.

5. Purple Reign
As seen at: Derek Lam, Vera Wang and Sally LaPointe
Purple is the new black next season in an extremely big way. Bright colourful eyes are one of the most exciting trends that came from the catwalks with inspiration taken from hibiscus flowers and floral prints. Complete the look with a dewy glossy finish.

6. The Red Lip
As seen at: Burberry Prorsum, Missoni and Zac Posen
A classic red lip rarely goes out of fashion and it’s been resurrected in every which way possible for the summer. Be it matte, 80s or defined, think everything from deep ruby to pillar box hues that are perfect for the sophisticated glamazon.
