Go for fresh, glowing skin.

SMOKY eyes and nude nails are just some of the key make-up trends for the festive season.

Say goodbye to the traditional black eyeliners as make-up artists suggest a true blue take on smoky eyes.

Displaying some of the key trends at London Fashion Week, sockets were loaded with bright blue and eyes were aqua bright.

Make-up artists also dismissed facelifts, going instead for a scattering of freckles to get a youthful look.

Varying tones of brow pencil were stippled across cheeks and noses to enhance or replicate models' own freckles at Moschino Cheap & Chic, and a smattering of freckles were applied to sculpted cheekbones at Sass & Bide.

When it comes to lips, one colour just isn't enough, try next season's two-tone pout.

MAC's Andrew Gallimore was the king of this technique, first creating an orange and fuchsia eye-popping summery lip at Holly Fulton.

Dubbing them "sunblockneon" lips he used neon pink in the outer corners of the lip, orange Lipmix towards the middle, and then softly blurred the two hues together with a blending brush.

For nails, the key trend is nude, nude and more nude.

Marian Newman for MAC describes it as the strongest talon trend she's seen in 15 years: "The nude nail is such a powerful story."

Jenni Longworth for Revlon agrees, who also used versions of modern nudes at Daks and Christopher Raeburn.

And finally, when it comes to skin you can forget spray tans. Fresh, glowing skin is the order of the day rather than deep, sahara suntans.
