1. Flushed Skin

Skin that's glowing with a tint of colour is a marvelous minimal look that makes maximum impact.

Swirlster Says: The Maybelline Face Studio Master Contour Palette is a 3-step kit of buildable shades of contour powder, blush and bronzer.

2. Nature Forever

Go back to nature with ingredients that are pure, non-toxic and beneficial for skin and hair, not just this season but through the year.

Swirlster Says: The Indus Valley Aloe Vera Gel is organic and free of toxins to be used on both, the hair and skin.

3. Metallic Nails

Give your regular glitter and solid nail polishes a break in favour of metallic nails to lend a striking finish.

Swirlster Says: The Beromt Mirror Nail Polish in 307 Rose Rust is a pink toned metallic shade with a shiny finish.

4. Bring Back Gloss

Mattes have had more than their fair share of attention in the makeup sphere so it's about time gloss made its way back under the spotlight.

Swirlster Says: The Maybelline Shine Compulsion Lipstick in Popping Coral is set to be a summer favourite. The range comes in 11 bold shades that glide onto the lips easily and have amazing colour payoff, all with an incredibly glossy finish.

5. The Brighter, The Better

Don't shy away from bright shades on your eyes with a pop of colour (or three!) on your lids and lines.

Swirlster Says: The L.A. Girl Neon Eyeshadow Palette features 12 bright shades in various finishes.

6. Au Natural

Makeup that looks like you aren't wearing anything is all you need for an au natural makeup look that isn't cakey or powdery.

Swirlster Says: The Maybelline Fit Me Concealer contains no waxes or oils but a translucent base and lightweight pigments. This gives it the breathable natural coverage it's so famous for that allows skin's natural texture to show.

7. Defined Lashes

Even if you aren't keen on a full-fledged eye look, a dash of mascara will add a groomed touch that's low on effort.

Swirlster Says: The Colorbar Lash Illusion Duo Mascara works to lengthen and volumise the lashes.

8. Fresh Skin

Before any makeup, skin care comes first so go the extra mile to keep it looking fresh, clarified and protected.

Swirlster Says: The Plum Green Tea Toner is made for oily and acne-prone types to keep the face feeling fresh

9. Brows On Fleek

Make them say 'brow chica wow wow' with a set of groomed, filled brows that don't look like they're painted on.

Swirlster Says: The Maybelline Fashion Brow Pomade is a creamy crayon that defines eyebrows naturally and tames them as it does.
