FROM expertly applied tan to lip colour, it can be hard to keep up with all the hottest beauty trends.
Experimenting with different shades and styles can be key to finding the right look for you — but how do you know if you have taken it too far?
Even celebrities miss the mark sometimes.
Here, our beauty barometer tells you when to put on the brakes so you will look perfectly made-up in no time.
Tan — from cool to crazy
Cool: Nicola Roberts
Pale skin doesn’t mean you need to be afraid of bronzer.
Singer Nic, 31, is unnaturally white in this powder-heavy look.
The Harry Potter and Beauty and the Beast star, 26, gets it right with a subtle, sun-kissed glow.
Just right: Cheryl
A perfect mix of gold tones and tan highlights.
The 33-year-old pulls off fake tan without looking like it’s caked on.
Naturally pale actress Emma, 28, shows what can go wrong with out-the-bottle tan.
Her look screams “fake bake”.
Crazy: Lauren Goodger
Proof faking it can go horribly wrong.
Topping up fake tan with bronzer gives the ex-Towie star, 30, an orange shade.

Romps with your boss, S&M fantasies and sex with an ex… here are what your sex dreams REALLY mean
Lips — from nude to nuclear
Nude: Isla Fisher
A nude lip is fine, but Isla‘s creamy lippy means her lips merge into her face, leaving the actress, 41, lacking serious pout.
Just right: Alexa Chung
An immaculate example of red lips.
Style guru Alexa, 33, teams glossy rouge with a soft hairstyle and natural blush.
A bright coral colour brings too much attention to the mouth of the reality star, 32, distracting from the rest of her face.
Purple lips can work, but this ultra-glossy pout teamed with fake lashes gives the Little Mix star, 23, an overdone look.
The 20-year-old singer’s pale skin and deep purple lips are extremes that don’t mix — unless you’re after the teen goth look.
Eyeliner — from subtle to scary
Subtle: Gigi Hadid
Blink and you’ll miss it — 21-year-old Gigi‘s nude look means her eyes are lost among the red lips and contoured cheeks.
The 24-year-old Little Mix singer’s cat-eye flick widens her eyes and matches her glam look.
Just right: Kate Moss
A supermodel look to copy. Kate, 43, teams a black liner flick with brown shadow to give her eyes a boost.
This gives us the blues.
Not only has the singer, 27, over-lined her eyes, but the blue tint gives her a dated Eighties look.
Scary: Rita Ora
Here’s proof that statement liner can shout: “This looks awful.”
The singer, 26, lays it on way too thick.
Brows — from meh to mad
Meh: Jennifer Lawrence
J-Law‘s brows lack shape and definition.
Next to the 26-year-old’s dark, smoky eyes, her brows are disappointingly un-glam.
Just right: Beyoncé
Brow queen Beyoncé, 35, demonstrates how to achieve the perfect arch without going too dark with her brow liner.
Nails the shape, but the 36-year-old’s heavy-handed, super-dark brow colour leaves her with an unnatural appearance.
Black brows draw attention to the 24-year-old’s forehead rather than her eyes.
A lack of shape leaves them slug-like.
Mad: Holly Hagan
Too dark, too long to be natural and so defined they look like the Geordie Shore star, 24, drew them on with a Sharpie.
