Diane Von Furstenberg and Jeremy Scott were just two designers to use vibrant hues at their shows. We loved the vibrant orange and hot pinks, as well as precious gemstone blues and greens worn together, creating a luminous ocean effect that we’ll be trying out throughout spring and well into summer. Hair was big, bold and effortlessly sexy – think dreamy, 70s-style curls with floral accessories and platinum ‘60s dos that really turn up the heat.

Nothing says ‘hello, world!’ like a bright colour pop to the lips. Charm the birds from the trees with kissable lips in shades of pink and red – the trick is to layer-up with lip liner first and then building up to get the level of colour you want. Stay bang on-trend by choosing a lipstick with a gorgeous matte finish.

Recreate just-stepped-off-the-plane radiance without the harmful sun exposure. Dewy highlights, a bronzed goddess glow and nude touches create a radiant healthy look that can be worn all year round. Contour and blend harsh lines so the look is natural and then add highlighter where the sun would naturally hit the face including forehead, cheeks, chin, the bridge of the nose and the cupid’s bow.
