Team bright lips with crisp white separates or morph monochrome into something sizzling. Don't go matchy-matchy with finger and toes: try lips in Flamingo 08, a delectable clear rose pink for all skin tones, with hint-of-pink Toasted Sugar on fingernails, then adorn toes with deep amethyst African Violet.

Complement sun-kissed skin with lustrous lip colour in Sheer, chock full of nourishing vitamins C and E, plus Shea butter to lavish dry lips with moisture. In two gorgeous, sell-out shades, Skinny Dip (the softest gold peach) and Rose Soleil (soft bronze rhubarb wine).

Nudes look fabulous against tanned skin. This season’s nudes hark back to the 60s: rock the look with come-to-bed lashes and voluptuous lips. Load on Extreme Mascara, then slick lips with the misleadingly named Chastity (an iridescent petal-pink sheer) or Sable Smoke (a tinge of caramel). Top with Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Naked.

Fingernails are short again this season, which is a boon for most women. They look fabulous in on-trend brights such as Crimson Fire or Coral Blame, or go more dramatic with Bordeaux Lust (the names say it all really). But a word of warning: leave plenty of time to do your nails in these colours – one mis-stroke and they’re ruined. So if you’re in a hurry, go with Naked or Toasted Sugar.
Nail Lacquer in Ginger Fire, Coral Blame or Bordeaux Lust, £27
For 9-5, choose a perfect soft rosy pink. Indian Rose is the classic and should be a staple in every woman’s handbag. If you like a lippy with a tinge of caramel, try Sable Smoke – fabulous against white or creamy complexions. For evening, glam up with a coat of Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Tawny Pink and pair with chic neutral Naked on your hands, for the cleanest, freshest nails.
