Makeup takes much of its direction from the fashion trends of the moment so it's no surprise to see that bold, bright colours are the must-have of the season, with purple likely to prove particularly chic.

Reds, oranges, bubble gum pinks and corals will match your lips with your outfits, give you a sexy edge and, to stay bang on trend, matte is the way to go, particularly if hot pink is your chosen colour. Team the bright lipstick with a natural look - a touch of foundation will give you that flawless appearance and a simple black mascara will mean your lips get all the attention.

For the evening though, you may prefer to draw attention to the eye area - so it's good news for lovers of electric neons. Oranges, pinks, greens and blues can enhance your eyes and black eyeliner and mascara will emphasise this. If neon is your thing, be sure to create the illusion of flawless skin with concealer and foundation and lips should either remain bare or bold with bright red.

Eyebrows too are fuller than in previous years. A more natural shape is in order as brows are bold this spring and a fuller brow will help to emphasise those eyes - step away from the tweezers, girls.

Of course, natural never goes out of fashion. For a change from the party animal look, bare or natural-looking lipstick, concealer for a flawless complexion and neutral eyeshadow provides a look to suit all types, ages and styles.

Finally, nails are taking inspiration from pearls this spring, with grey, pink, white and peach the hot colours for the season.
