Get a fresh face for the new season with model looks from The Design Collective catwalk show. Embrace bronze skin and a strong neon lip, good news for fans of glowing skin and bold colour!
International make-up artist Lan Nguyen has worked for glossies such as Russian Vogue, Elle UK and Glamour, and counts celebrities Taylor Momsen, Michelle Williams and Paloma Faith among her clientele. She worked with The Body Shop products to create this spring-fresh look for Evans. Here she gives step-by-step instructions for you to get the glow and the season’s new neon coral lip.
CREATE A BASE
Prep the skin with toner and moisturiser, then smooth on The Body Shop All in One BB cream. Apply Lightening Touch Radiance cream with a soft brush on the apples of your cheeks for a subtle sheen.
Top Tip: For dark circles under your eyes, mix in radiance cream with a concealer and gently press into the skin. You’ll instantly appear more youthful.
For definition, dust Honey Bronzer powder onto the edge of the cheekbones with a big blusher brush. Burnish cheeks with Shimmer Cube Pallet 06 in Warm. Apply on the high side of the apple for a healthy glow.
To create a soft shimmery eye, use Shimmer Waves Bronze 01 quad eye shadow. Dust the mid-tones over the lid from base to brow. Define the socket line with the taupe colour and use the highlighter on the brow and inside of the eye to open up the face.
THE NEON LIP
To make your neon lip pop, keep it strong but not heavy. Dab 105 Coral Cutie Lipstick with your index finger onto your lips from centre to edge for a feminine, fashion-forward statement.

What inspired this look for the Evans show?
I studied the collection, which was fresh, modern and wearable. The bright orange statement lip reflected it.
Why is make-up such a confidence booster?
It enhances what you have feature-wise, giving you bigger eyes, longer lashes, fuller lips. It also conceals any blemishes and gives you a mask when you want to look better.
When did you fall in love with make-up?
On the day I started experimenting on myself trying to create looks from the magazines.
