Just look at presenter, Katy Perry, who balanced her edgy pixie cut with striking pink shadow. Or Lorde, who went with a wash of pink shadow on her lids too.

Hailey Baldwin and Tiffany Haddish were bang on trend too, with cheeks and lips adorned in light washes of the same shade. For the quickest flush, dot your lipstick on the apples of your cheeks and blend, blend, blend. Then swipe the same colour onto your pout.

There’s no need to stop at skin though, as Vanessa Morgan and Nicki Minaj rocked rose gold in their hair.
