Whatever your skin tone, shine on your big day with the perfect colour palette and smart tricks to enhance your best features.
Glow in the Day
Add a touch of pink blush to a fair complexion. Look fresh and young with rosy lips and a shimmering pink on the eyes. Draw natural-looking brows and finish with just the lighest touch of mascara on the lashes.

If your skin has a yellow undertone, try a mix of deep pinks and nudes. Focus on the eyes with strong dark brows and lots of mascara. Keep the rest of the face clean and sheer with the lightest tones that enhance your features. Complete the look with kissable lips in a pretty orange-pink.

Tanned complexions looks best with more shimmer and shine. For a radiant glow, sweep a little pink onto the cheeks and lips. Focus on the eyes with a light liner and mascara, and frame your features with darker brows. Then layer on the shimmer- it’ll bring out your skin tone and the other colour beautifully.

Shine In the Evening
Darken hues for the night, especially on the lips and cheeks. Then pile on the mascara for more impact and elongate eyeshadow as well as liner to lift the eyes and give your features a flirtier feel.

For a smouldering modern look, darken the brows and line the eyes completely, either with liner or a dark eyeshadow. Add a little shine for more glow, and to play up the golden hue of your skin. Lips get a deeper shade with more gloss.

With fair skin, just hints of rich colours can make a big difference. Make your eyes pop by blending the darker tones, layering on mascara and adding a gorgeous metallic liner. Finish with blush to match the entire colour palette and a rich, robust hue on the lips.
