From the nude trend (on the lips, don’t worry) that doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon to the embrace of colour (think reds and purples) that’s the exact opposite on the eyes, here they are. Untouched, unfiltered and bloody beautiful.

1. Lorde.

Finally you have a use for that lavender eyeshadow you’ve had kept since you were 14 years old. Lorde makes purple shimmer look elegant, finished off with a dainty line of violet eyeliner.

2. Demi Lovato

Big lashes and a nude lip, a fail-safe awards look makes.

3. Paris Jackson

A swipe of emerald green under the lower lashes doesn't have to be hard or scary, as Paris proves. It's great for any coloured eyes, but particularly brings out blues and greens. Just keep things neutral on top if you want to keep it wearable.

Finally! A lip that is not nude! It was beginning to feel indecent.
