Now is the time to call on your beauty brigade – and what better army than pink and red. Go to battle in one shade with tonality and tenacity. At either end of the tonal spectrum sit the most-admired shades in all the Kingdoms: pink and red. The best part? You don’t have to think (too hard) about it. One shade, a few products: the perfect look.

For House Pink, tap into the pink eye trend and sweep neon coral across lids (and gently under, if you’re gallant). Continue your run along the pink gamut and blend creamy rose into cheeks and slick salmon on lips. If the Khaleesi doth protest too much, valiant and noble cavalrymen await, with red beauty shields. A rosy blush is the perfect post battle pick-me-up; tend to eyes with a directional but delicate flick and of course, a red lip.

The only chink in your beauty armour? The decision. Liquid or lipstick? Cream or powder? Shadow or liner?

Choose your side wisely.
