Best way to elevate any makeup look? A streak of bright lip colour. Fresh, cool, luxe; a bold lip is the perfect summer accessory. Our top tips? Always pair with a lip liner – this will make your lip look last longer and stop it from feathering. For a neat finish, apply lipstick to the outer corner of the lip with a brush and blot of any excess product.

According to pro makeup artist Nikki Wolff, ‘It’s all about not being scared to use your blush as you wouldn’t normally and bringing it in as part of the focus of your look. I think bringing it up across cheekbones and over the temples is really flattering and can lift the angles of the face’. That being said, forget what you think you know about blush and take notes. Spotted all over TikTok, strong blush is the way to brighten any complexion and it’s so easy to achieve. If carefully placed, bright blush can be used to substitute highlighter and contouring products.
