No make-up make-up look by Sally Salon ServicesSally Salon Services's MUA Georgia Cutts reveals her step-by-step guide to "no make-up" make-up:

While this season’s make-up has a matte, neutral finish, it can be emboldened with a slick of metallic colour on the eyelids. However, the "no make-up" make-up look is set to see a huge resurgence in popularity during the warmer months, with flawless, bright skin and flirty lashes predicted to be the look of the season, and the best thing about this look? Natural beauty suits everyone.

Step 1 – Begin by prepping skin with your favorite primer 

Step 2 – Next, use a compact foundation to form a natural base on the skin. Cutts used Bodyography’s Base Silk Cream

Step 3 – Use a contour palette such as Contour Cosmetics to add definition to the cheekbones 

Step 4 – Finish the look with Bodyography’s Blur, Set, Perfect Finishing Powder to create a matte finish 

Step 5 – For the lips, apply the shade Sticks & Stones from the Palladio Ombré 2-in-1 Lip Colour collection 

Step 6 – For the eyes, use a matte terracotta shade, and then highlight with a pearlescent peach. Cutts used Killer then Boogie & Dream On from Bodyography's Disco ‘Til Dawn palette 

Step 7 – Finish by using the Ardell Beauty Mega Volume Never Flat Mascara to open up the eyes and complete the look.

Sally Salon Services's MUA Georgia Cutts reveals her step-by-step guide to bold smokey eyes:

The timeless smoky eye is getting a revamp this spring, using dark, silvery shades and bronze hues, to suit all clients. Team a dramatic shimmery eye with a nude lipstick to add subtle shimmer and let the eyes do the work.

Step 1 – Use a concealer with a flat brush to map out and define the shape of the wing 

Step 2 – Apply a shimmering olive-toned pressed eyeshadow onto the lid, packing on the colour using a stiff brush. Cutts used shade Psyche from the Bodyography Disco ‘Til Dawn Palette 

Step 3 – Next, apply Ardell Beauty Faux Mink Multi- Layering Mascara in Supreme Black to the top lashes 

Step 4 – Lightly brush the brows with Ardell Brow Confidentil Brow Duo to add texture 

Step 5 – Use a concealer to cover any imperfections and keep the look light and natural 

Step 6 – Finish with a translucent powder, highlighter and a nude lipstick.
