Lucky colour: Red
How to wear it: Red might be a daring hue to wear, especially on the eyes, but it can be surprisingly easy to pull off with the proper placement and blending skills. A rule of thumb is to find the right shade of red and keeping the rest of the face in balance.
If you’re intimidated by the bold hue, ease your way into this daring trend by opting for a red shadow in a sheer finish. Begin by applying an eyeshadow primer all over your lids, then use a fluffy blending brush to swirl the shadow over the top.

How to wear it: While blue mascara is a somewhat unconventional choice, it’s are a wearable alternative to the basic black.
While you get the same lengthening and volumising effect of a mascara, dark blue mascara actually brightens the whites of your eyes, especially good for days when you’re tired and eyes are bloodshot. If you’re tiptoeing into the trend, try a near-black navy liner.

How to wear it: Makeup trends may come and go but there are some makeup looks that we will always come back to year after year.

Lucky colour: Light pink
How to wear it: A light pink blush that catches the light on the high planes of the face is perfect for highlighting and giving the face structure without having to contour.
If you have a darker complexion, layer your pale pink blush with a darker bolder pink one to add depth to the face. Pop the blush along the top of your cheekbone and blend upwards towards the temple for that natural flush.

How to wear it: Choosing a brow product that matches your brow’s natural colour is hard to do, especially if your hair has cooler tones.
Unlike other brow products that might be too warm or ashy, think of grey as the neutral “universal brow colour” that blends seamlessly with all hair colours and skin tones.
It doesn’t deposit colour so much as create dimension, creating the illusion of fuller, thicker and more defined brows without that overdone look.
