Blue is the new black. And so are fuch­sia, bur­gundy and gold. “Bright colours are all about hav­ing fun, plus they add a shot of adren­a­line to your en­tire look,” says Martin.

TRY IT: Don’t coat all of your lashes in an in­tense hue – just fo­cus on the outer quar­ter. “Brush on a white primer first, then ap­ply your reg­u­lar mas­cara ex­cept for on the outer edges, cov­er­ing them in colour in­stead,” says Martin. “The white will can­cel out the nat­u­ral pig­ment of your lash, so the colour re­ally pops.” We like Clin­ique Lash Build­ing Primer, $35. With so much hap­pen­ing on your eyes, keep the rest of your face min­i­mal – just foun­da­tion and lip balm. A lit­tle colour shy? Ease your­self in. Try a sub­tle colour tweak, sug­gests make-up artist Linda West. “Brown eyes look great with pur­ple, blue eyes are en­hanced with blue,” she says. “Green or hazel eyes will pop with bur­gundy.” Pop that.
