Kristen Stewart's Striking Silver

Kristen is not afraid to take risks when it comes to fashion and beauty, and whilst this may not be entirely suitable for the office, there's no denying it makes her green eyes pop. Get the look with Nars Single Eyeshadow in Malacca £19.15. Wash on dry for a sheer daytime loom, or to really pump up the intensity, use a damp brush to build up a really striking colour.

Beyonce's Feline Eyes

Not only has Beyonce stolen the limelight with her Lemonade album, but she's gone and done it again with these mesmerising cat eyes. The shade actually has a hint of green it in, which is much warmer on all skintones than a harsh black. The dark Khaki first made an appearance last year in beauty, and it shows no signs of waning anytime soon. Nars have hit the jack pot again with Nars Steven Klein Never Too Late Single Eyeshadow £18.00, these are blendable, budgeproof and have the colour intensity to last all night (even if you don't wearing THOSE shoes...)

Now for those who don't have a spare $2,000 lying around for fancy new nails, this Leighton Denny Nail Colour Diamond Diva £6.60Diamond has an advanced, premium formula and the wide brush makes it easy to apply, for a long - lasting, chip resistant polish.

As proven here with her beautiful example on nontouring. or those not in the know, that's the latest version of contouring, but done entirely with using highlighters to enhance and give your skin a healthy glow. It has a much more natural effect that contouring with darker shades, and gives a girl-next-door feel that is perfect for summer. Fair skins will suit Perricone Md No Highlighter Highlighter £29.00 for the perfect, suits all pinky shade. Darker skin tones can gild their faces with gold, and simply sweep Elizabeth Arden Limited Edition Beautiful Colour Highlighter £29.99 over the high points of their fa
