I am in­spired by soft, neu­tral shades this month – they are ro­man­tic, at­ter­ing and never over the top. I’m look­ing for a pared-down, pol­ished look, with make-up in tones of dusty rose, blush pink and seashell. Adding a bit of shim­mer or a gloss nish creates di­men­sion and pre­vents the look from ap­pear­ing at. Use a gloss on the eye­lids and lips, or high­lighter on the cheek­bones. Flushed pink cheeks are rem­i­nis­cent of youth – and my re­sponse to the con­tour­ing craze. Sim­ply smile and tap the ap­ples of the cheeks with a dust­ing of your shade of pink. For fair skins, choose a baby pink and la­bels that say ‘ sheer’ or ‘ satin nish’ so you don’t over­dose on colour. Medium and olive-toned skins look great in peach shades, and dark skins can soak up colour with plums and deep ter­ra­cotta pinks. For this neu­tral make-up look it’s best to steer clear of a to­tally matte look and in­stead go for dewy and ra­di­ant skin.
