Though the weather may not suggest it, summer isn't quite over yet, which means that bright and colourful summer looks are still in season. A simple splash of colour can lighten a look to offer contrast to your base, or can be matched to your summer wardrobe for all over coordinated colour. We have picked out some of our brightest and most bold cosmetics to help make summer last a little longer.

Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher

Perfect for after you have polished of your base, achieve a healthy looking rosy cheek with the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Fluid Blusher. The liquid blends easily onto the skin to give your desired pinch of colour that gives the impression of a healthy but subtle blush. Enriched with Jojoba and Vitamin E, the formula is kind on the skin and doesn't feel sticky or heavy and is waterproof to ensure that your colour lasts no matter what the weather looks like. The award-winning blusher is also oil-free, making it suitable for anyone with blemish-prone or oily skin.

A bright eye shadow is an easy way to add some colour to your look.
