Spring/Summer 2012 saw models at London Fashion Week with neutral palettes of makeup for the face and eyes, whilst lips were awash with a contrasting pop of vivid colour rather than the dark and heavy shades seen last season. An unashamedly bright lipstick is sure to get you noticed and this season’s hottest shades are pillarbox-red, neon pink, vibrant coral and electric orange as seen at Jen Kao, Yves Saint Laurent and Jason Wu.

This eye-catching trend is perfect for those who wish to vamp up their makeup look quickly and easily. It’s the best way to simply transform a natural, daytime look into an elegant, yet glamorous evening style. For those of you after a high impact makeup look, follow in the footsteps of Jason Wu who opted for bright orange-red lipstick lined with an incredible ruby red pencil.

To achieve this look begin by lining the lips with this ultra-silk scarlet liner from Natio This product is long-lasting and won’t feather or smudge to give your lips a fuller, poutier appearance. Next, use this show-stopping lipstick from Mac in Morange which will add both colour and texture to the lips. Finish by adding a few dabs of Mac Pigment in Neo-orange with your finger to your lips for added oomph! Don’t forget to pop the products in your handbag in case you need to top up during the evening.

Nicky Hambleton-Jones bra picks

At this time of year it is especially important to ensure that your lingerie is comfortable, flattering and fits you well.

When we show slightly more flesh than usual it is imperative that your bust is well-supported and you aren’t showing an unsightly panty line.

Finding the right bra can be extremely stressful and difficult which probably explains why 80% of women are wearing the wrong bra. (Watch this video to check if your bra is adequately supporting your bust http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNvUUtR46qQ.)

Every girl needs a perfect pair of jeans she can rely on as a wardrobe essential; with the power to be dressed up or down, and match pretty much anything in your closet!

The right jeans can be transformational in terms of flattering your figure. The key is in identifying what style is right for your shape – once you’ve cracked that you’ll be able to play around with different colours, patterns and embellishment.

If you are of a slight build, and lacking curves, I suggest going for baggy jeans which you can match with slouchy tops and chunky knits.

It’s supposed to be a special, exciting occasion; however attending weddings always becomes a stress as you struggle to find something suitable to wear. Here, I give you my top tips and suggestions for dressing and accessorising to find you the perfect wedding outfit.

To ensure you don’t tread on the Brides’s toes on her big day, choose a gorgeous green dress to razzle and dazzle them! A dress like this chic, pleated dress from Ted Baker, £129, will really suit women with a slim, leggy frame as the waist-tie will define your waist, whilst the volume on the skirt will help to create a feminine shape. However, if you’re curvy or self-conscious of your tummy, the clever pleated style will conceal any lumps or bumps!

Nicky Hambleton-Jones beauty advice

The weather may not be up to much, but don’t let it put you off embracing the hottest makeup trends this summer!

Colour Pop

This summer, makeup is all about embracing bright, bold hues in singular areas, whilst welcoming a palette of natural, neutral shades elsewhere. This look will really work with a fake tan as the brightest shades glow at their best on sun-kissed skin.

Effortlessly ensure your complexion is looking flawless by sweeping the lightweight, mineral infused lavera Natural Liquid Foundation, £11.90 over your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, using your fingertips to gently blend.
