Hollywood starlet Pin-ups: Emma Roberts, Emma Watson and Pixie Lott.

Best for: 20+ Metallics are fast becoming an all-year trend, thanks in part to Miu Miu's spring 2012 collection. Which means, when it comes to New Year party sparkle, anything goes!

co.uk). Try Avon's Sequins and Shine Palette (pounds 8.50, www.avonshop.co.uk) - blending the dark silver shade across the lid with MAC's 239 brush (pounds 19) and soften with the light silver. Blend Avon's SuperShock Eyeshadow in Moonshine (pounds 7) under the bottom lashes and add a slick of Avon's SuperEnchant Mascara (pounds 5). Blend a gold eyeshadow up to the brow, then finish with Shu Uemura's silver lashes (pounds 18, www.shuuemura.co.uk).

TIP Don't be afraid to wear silver and gold on the eyes together. They look modern, wearable and less like the Tin Man.

TIP Apply concealer after your eyeshadow so that any glitter lost can then be cleaned up.

Gothic glam Goth girls: Victoria Beckham and Dita Von Teese. Best for: 30+ The stars are unleashing their inner vamps with purple lip shades, dark brows and spidery lashes. Wear yours with twilight blue velvet dresses, black heels and lashings of lace. THE SKIN Make sure your skin is moisturised. Then apply a small amount of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum foundation (pounds 10.99, www.boots.com).

Dita Von Teese With a Real Techniques Domed Shadow Brush, apply Mac Studio Finish SPF 35 Concealer (pounds 13.50) under the eyes and over any blemishes on the skin before using a large powder brush to set your make-up into place.

THE EYES Firstly, take a natural colour eyeshadow - we used Mac Brule (pounds 11.50) and a Mac 217 brush (pounds 16). This look is mostly about the mascara and lips, so try Avon's SuperShock Max Mascara (pounds 10), which is really intense. Lastly, use an eyeshadow that matches your hair to define the brows - Mac's in Mystery is good. THE LIPS Don't be afraid to spend some time on this area. Fill them in with a Mac Lip Pencil in Currant (pounds 10.50), followed by an Avon Lip Gloss in Infinite Berry to give a shine worthy of any New Year's party.

Lip TIP For maximum impact, tilt your eyelash curler back and hold. All looks need false lashes - Mac 33 False Lashes give a natural effect.

Classic 'Tux' eyes Suits you: Catherine Zeta-Jones and Gwen Stefani. Best for: 40+ Thanks to Dolce&Gabbana, mannish make-up is big news in 2012. Focus on clean lines - think flawless coverage, sleek liquid liner, mascara and classic lips.

Contour cheeks with MAC's Powder Blush in Harmony (pounds 17).

Gwen Stefani THE EYES Use the same blusher on your eyes, applying with Mac's 217 brush to softly contour the Mac so e the si socket and create the illusion of bigger eyes.

Elf's Cream Eyeliner in Black (pounds 3.50, www.eyeslipsface.co.uk), is best applied with a liner brush - draw the line along the upper lash line going as thin or thick as you like.

(is draw Boost your lashes with Skinny Brush Mascara in Black (pounds 15, www.eyeko.com), and brows are back so use Sleek Makeup's Brow Kit (pounds 7.99, www.sleekmakeup.com).
