The must-try make-up mantra this au­tumn is: think pink! But be­ware, as just a touch of pink is all you need, or else you risk look­ing like an over­grown Bar­bie.

For day­time, keep the look quite soft; wear pink with nat­u­ral-look­ing nudes and em­pha­sise your lashes with a dark mas­cara. Team with some black eye­liner for a strik­ing evening look.

Lips: I’ve told you how Lan­come’s new L’Ab­solu Velours, left, €25, in Velours de Ma­genta, is my new lusthave lip­pie — I’m rock­ing it in my photo, above. You ap­ply it like a gloss but it has the cov­er­age and hold of a lip­stick for a vel­vety, matt fin­ish.

Eyes: Max Fac­tor’s New Wild Shadow Pot in Fierce Pink, €6.99, works re­ally well as an eye­liner. Just wet a liner brush and ap­ply the colour ei­ther on the top or bot­tom of the lash line.

Brush: Blank Can­vas Cos­met­ics pays ho­mage to this sea­son’s pink ob­ses­sion by cre­at­ing its pro make-up es­sen­tial, the F20 flat buf­fer brush, right, €13.99, in pink. Use it to ap­ply foun­da­tion but it’s also good for blush pow­der, bronz­ers and body shim­mers.

Top tip: F20’s unique blend­ing abil­ity makes it ideal for ma­ture skin too as it cre­ates a smooth, youth­ful­look­ing ap­pear­ance.

Blush/Multi-Use: Wild About Beauty Multi-Pur­pose Tint, €20.63, from www. feelu­ is a mul­ti­task­ing mar­vel that en­hances eyes, lips and cheeks by adding a hint of colour that lasts through­out the day.

Fra­grance: La­coste Touch of Pink, €30, is a flirty fruityflo­ral for your in­ner Bar­bie. Nails: NCLA Nail Pol­ish, be­low, €16, in Hello, I Love You, see www.nclaire­land. com, is high-shine, quick-dry and chip-re­sis­tant. It also has no DBP, no toluene, no formalde­hyde, or cam­phor and it’s not tested on an­i­mals.
