Embrace festive fambloyance and dispel the winter gloom with our pick of the season’s brightest beauty buys. From colour-pop nail lacquers to ‘Club Tropicana’ palettes, we’ve rounded up eight traffic-stopping products to inject some summer sunshine to your winter make up menu - just in time to dazzle through December...

A riotous array of bright, chameleonic colours, Violet Voss's {Rainbow Palette} definitely isn't one for wallflowers. With pigment-rich shadows in daring shades from ‘Flamingo’ (a hot neon pink) to ‘Fiji’ (a bright azure blue), this Rainbow Palette is ideal for adding instant intrigue to your make up menu. Upgrade the look with a quick slick of gloss - we worship Kevyn Aucoin's {The Exotique Eye Gloss} which boasts tiny gold flecks to add a whisper of shimmer.

Spice up your life with Huda's {Electric Obsessions} - a grid of nine hot, matte and satin shadows in a blinding range of colours from fuchsia to saffron yellow via indigo and bright ultramarine. Perfect for a 'pop' of vivid pigment, these accent hues will upgrade any muted daytime look to guarantee you're disco-ready in a jiffy...

Putting a more subversive spin on 'brights', Anastasia Beverly Hills' {Subculture Palette} stars 14 colours with suedette, shimmer and duo-chrome textures to create a spectrum of stunning eye make up effects. We're loving the shade 'All Star' - a rich, crimson that's ideal for a chic take on smoky smoulder, while 'Electric' is a gorgeous, golden-green glimmer that looks great applied to eyes' inner corners.

Bored of black? Define your lashline with NYX Professional Makeup's {Slide On Pencil} - a soft, silky liner which is great for defining your eyes with a fine, feline flick or full-on graphic wing that won't smudge or transfer as your evening progresses... We love the lush 'Tropical Green' shade which beautifies light brown or amber eyes.

Grant cheeks a gorgeous, dewy flush with 3CE's cute, twist-up {Creamy Cheek Sticks} which come in five bright, pastel shades to enliven lacklustre complexions. Easy to blend, these diffuse seamlessly for a beautiful glow that looks perfectly pretty. Try 'Pink Factory' for a sweet candy 'kiss' of colour.

Stila's {Star Studded Eight} stars an all-star line-up of long-wearing lip colours in a swathe of seasonal shades from nearly-nude to very-berry via look-at-me magenta. With velveteen and foil finishes, these kiss-resistant pigments are ideal for every mistletoe moment - so you can smooch without the party knowing you've been up to mischief...

Pout out loud with Lime Crime's stunning {Matte Velvetines} liquid lipsticks - in a kaleidoscope of muted hues and peacock-worthy primaries. From 'Squash' - a vibrant orange-yellow to 'Utopia' - an unapologetic shocking fuchsia, these daring stay-put lip colours are sure to get you noticed...

And if you like to confine colour to your nails, then CND's {Vinylux} lacquers have high-shine vinyl finishes and come in a spectacular array of technicolour hues. The ideal opportunity to step outside your comfort zone and sport a jazzy manicure, try 'Lobster Roll' - a wonderfully arresting coral-red that guarantees terrific talons.
