JOY STARKEY and TOM RASMUSSEN focus on make-up that will put a spring in your step

With the Cambridge sun emerging from the perpetual grey clouds, everyone is getting that Spring feeling. Looking ahead to the sunnier months it’s time to focus on the basics: make-up.

The big push this season is radiant skin, with a simple-but-statement eye or lip. Slick on the dark reds and purples, apply a top gloss to make your lips irresistibly kissable and team with a naked eye (well, a bit of mascara).

Apply heavy black liner under the eye to take you back to the 90s and use bright colour blocks on your upper lids – greens and blues. Finish with a Winehouse-esque flick.

For a dressy occasion go with a statement colour and apply a polka-dot under either eye to make your eyes sparkle.

Follow these simple tips for a quick and easy stylish look that’s sure to put a spring in your step.

    Why do you insist on doing make-up as if you're in Star Wars Episode I?

    Contradiction much?

      they're two alternatives: EITHER big eyes OR big lips.

    So beautiful. Tab fashion just gets better and better.

  • L. Benson

    We should really stop doing shoots of tired hipsters in play parks and do something original like this.

  • Ricky Alty

    As a teetotaler, I find make-up a problematic topic. The wearing of such cosmetic products is merely an attempt to lure members of the opposite sex, who when inebriated all too often pounce on such an opportunity. All power to nude faces.
