Acid Wash - Think of everything you knew about bright colours, then add a couple of hundred watts and your in 2011 territory! OK, so bright blue lips aren't for everyone, but try out some lemon nails or green eyes as seen at Betty Jackson and just see how happy your face looks, even without a smile on it. This is some serious mood-boosting make-up.
Chalky Pastels - Just because they're pastels doesn't mean they can't be super-bright. Lin=me green can be chalky too, as demonstrated on the Alberta Ferretti catwalk to perfection, and universally flattering lilac was popular both Etro and Mary Katranzou went varying degrees on thier models. It's like those first spring doffodils in powder form!
Metallic Copper - From full-on copper-dipped lips and lashes at Rodarte, to beautiful metallic gloss lid at Donna Karen, this year gold and silver have been bumped out of the make-up bag in favour of their more refined cousin - copper. Meet the new metallic in your life: its warmer, more flattering, and mush easier to pull off in the sunnier months.
Nicki Minaj Streaks - First there was Lady GaGa and fashion went nuts for yellow ends, now since the s/s shows, everyone's loving painted rainbow streaks. Yes, you heard me right. Alexandre Herchcovitch and JJ Smith went neon bright and heavily textured. I'm not suggesting you crack open the Dulux paint, but a few prettily placed extension streaks should nail it.
