Want to acknowledge the changing season without re-vamping your entire make up wardrobe? With these simple beauty tricks, you can look totally 'on trend' (without spending a small fortune).

Work a holo-glow

Highlighter but not as you know it, the latest luminisers have a multi-tonal lustre. Whether you call them duo-chrome or holographic, choose shade-shifting hues to exaggerate cheek and brow bones. We're obsessed with NYX Professional Makeup's stunning {Duo Chromatic Illuminating Powders}.

Embrace the braid

Think 'Summer of Love' skinny plaits in the style of a '70s groupie. Bohemian in the best way, get scrunchy, tousled waves with REVERIE's {MARE Mediterranean Sea Mist}, before adding a smattering of micro-braids for cool Coachella-ready vibes. Perfect paired with delicately sunkissed skin, use BECCA's beautiful {Sunchaser Palette} to dust a rosy-toned 'strip' across the centre of your face and maximise the gorgeous 'girl outdoors' effect.

The lived-in lip

Instead of spending ages painstakingly perfecting a matte liquid lip, use a crayon (we love Nudestix {Magnetic Matte Lip Colours}) and blur with fingertips for a sexy, caught-kissing stain that lingers. Think perfectly imperfect.

Go for gloss

Exploding back onto the beauty scene, you need to rapidly renew your 'glossy posse' membership. A slick of high-shine lip lacquer - ideally laced with holographic shimmer à la Surratt's {Lip Lustre} in 'Amethyste' - is guaranteed to make you feel 15 again.

Get graphic

Guaranteed to get you noticed, exaggerate your classic feline flicks or get creative with a colour-pop 'cut crease'. A bright liquid liner will be your best friend this season - we love Beauty Bakerie's {GELato} - pots of long-wear pigment which are eye-deal for achieving snag-free (smudge-proof) lines. 

Try a wet-look lid

Gloss is not consigned to lips - let lids in on the vinyl, disco-era action with Kevyn Aucoin's {Diamond Exotique Eye Gloss} - a clear, glimmering balm that immediately lends your look an editorial edge (especially when partnered with the aforementioned lived-in lip).

Go poker straight

Resurrect your hair irons and re-visit the '00s with a sleek and swishy, crease-free mane (preferably centre-parted). Use a heat-protective mist - we rate Davines' {MELU Shield} - then finish with a slick of oil or mane-taming serum (Sachajuan's {Shine} formula lends locks a mirror-like finish).
