Every season a raft of new beauty trends swamp the market, and images of pert and perfect models sporting strange new makeup looks bombard the media. But you don't have to sport hot pink eyeshadow and green lips to be on-trend - scale back the the extremes of the latest runway styles and you can look up-to-date and gorgeous.

TREND ONE: WARM EYES

At Gareth Pugh this trend was presented as an angry red wash of colour through the entire eye socket.

WEAR IT WELL: Take the trend from runway to real way by incorporating warm plummy red tones into your usual eye makeup. Try Estee Lauder Pure Stay-on Shadow Paint, $49. Wear this as a solid sweep of colour, or soften and smudge it out with your fingers or a brush. It lasts all day and doesn't crease or crack. Or try M.A.C eyeshadow in Plum Dressing, $50.

TREND TWO: BURGUNDY LIPS

A dark, sharp and high gloss lip was the key look at Jonathon Saunders.

WEAR IT WELL: If a bold wine lip is too intense for you, try a stain instead. Try Nimue Treatment Lip Colour in Plum, $45. Or try M.A.C Rich Mineralize Lipstick in All Out Gorge, $58.

TREND THREE: 60S LASHES

Dolly lashes were the focus at Moschino, where falsies were applied to both top and bottom lashes.

WEAR IT WELL: Get the 60s effect by building up multiple coats of mascara on your top and bottom lashes. You'll need a mascara that's designed to look intense. Try Lancome Hypnose Star, $58, or Maybelline Volum' Express Colossal Cat Eyes, $23.99.
