This season, beauty is going back to basics: the primary colours. Red, yellow and blue are the colours from which all other colours are formed. While these colours might seem too bold for some, this trend can be as daring as you want it to be. Here’s how to rock the primary colours trend:

Primary ColoursRED

Red is a timeless and universally flattering shade. Red lips and nails are the way to go, always elegant and never boring.

Lips:

Like the iconic Elizabeth Arden Red Door fragrance, Elizabeth Arden Red Door Red lipstick (R 185 at Elizabeth Arden counters) is a beauty classic that flatters every skin tone.

Nails:

Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in Fame Fatal (R 24.95 at Clicks and Dis-Chem) is a bold postbox red. With this polish, you’ll feel as glamorous as an old-school Hollywood actress.

YELLOW

Don’t be scared to incorporate the most daring of the primary colours into your look. Yellow can be both edgy and sophisticated.

Nails:

Bright yellow nails are striking and fun. For perfect opaque matte coverage, try love Inglot Nail Enamel in 722 (R 109 at Inglot stores and counters).

Eyes:

For the brave beauty junkie, canary yellow eyeshadow makes eyes pop like nothing else. We love MAC Chrome Yellow eyeshadow (R for its gorgeous matte finish.

BLUE

Blue eyeshadow is no longer an 80s throwback, but is trending in a big way on the runway and red carpet.

EYES:

Choose a cobalt blue eyeshadow for a bright, vibrant look. Stila Jewel Eyeshadow in Blue Sapphire (R 235 at Stila counters) has just the right amount of sparkle.

For an edgy update on graphic liner, choose navy blue over black. We love Inglot Liquid Liner in 30 (R 169 at Inglot stores and counters) for its smooth application and intense colour.
