The Hairdressers makeup artist Rennae Nelson says Hong Kong women should take a leaf out of French women's book this season and avoid being 'overdone'. But unlike the under-stated French approach, Hong Kong women should try a bit of colour. 'They can simply use a bit of concealer instead of a heavy foundation - something translucent,' Nelson says. 'If you're going for a blush, go for something that's a little bit more candy pink and the brighter citrus tones, but still soft. I think a cream or a tint is best. 'I like a cheek gel. They're sheer and aren't going to move much, which is what you want in the humidity.' Freelance makeup artist Erica Cheung says young Hong Kong women are often rushed in the morning. As a result, they often apply only lipstick and cheek colour. 'I gave a makeup class for the staff of a company and about 70 people were there,' Cheung says. 'More than 60 didn't know how to make up. 'But in the future, makeup will become more popular in Hong Kong because teenagers are getting more into it and there are now classes for them.' In summer, Nelson dilutes blush creams with a bit of concealer to get a glow rather than a painted look. She says eyes are still bright, but colours are metallics. 'But if you're going to do metallics, keep the rest of your face flat and use them as the real crunch,' she says. 'For the day, just use a little bit of waterproof mascara. 'For night, go for metallic eyeliner for a bit of oomph.' Lips are still translucent, but with a stain. 'It's the candy pinks and fruity look, as though you've just eaten a strawberry,' Nelson says. Her tip for those who want a bit of a glow is to use a fake tan with your moisturiser.
