Three ways to wear colour: RMK Summer Collection 2016
The new makeup collection from RMK will have you itching to experiment with cool brights

Summer's just around the bend and while this weather change may not impact us tropical dwellers, your makeup is where you can artfully play up the season. Also, it's the justification to get all that gorgeous summer shades — cue the show of hands from makeup junkies.

Looking to get your head start in colour? RMK's new makeup collection for summer 2016 is where iridescent hues meet fuss-free application. Vibrant and chic, we can already picture the numerous fun looks to wear 10 ways from Monday. Here are three celebrity-inspired looks to get you turning up the summer heat:

1. Gaga for shimmer

RMK Summer 2016 Collection

Though not the usual face when it comes to makeup you can pull off everyday, Lady Gaga has been showing up several sleek looks that'll make her a makeup muse yet. We're loving the oh-so-summer and juicy-looking peachy pink shades. For a wash of glistening colour on your lids, the new limited edition RMK Crayon Colour Eyes is your waterproof and versatile go-to. Pair the bright pop of colour with soft pastel nails and you're ready to hit the beach or the mall.

2. The new nude

RMK Summer 2016 Collection

You might be thinking Kylie Jenner has cornered the market when it comes to nude lips, but Rihanna demonstrates how a sheer natural hue highlights caramel skin tones and complements a soft lilac eye. Lightweight but packed with colour, RMK's Lip Care Colour UV Stick is a multi-purpose lipcolour that also protects and moisturises with a combination of cooling ingredients such as peppermint and menthol. Formulated with SPF16 PA+ in six sheer playful shades, you won't be shy to pucker up for the camera.

3. All a-flush

RMK Summer 2016 Collection

The dark horse that's making herself a household name, Margot Robbie's got us in her thrall between her acting chops and her defined beauty. With an enviable glow that's constantly lusted after, you can emulate her healthy sun-kissed complexion with the Ingenious Powder Cheeks N that are blended with pearls for a soft radiance. To amp up the summer flush, replace your regular black mascara with generous coats of the dual-wand W Colour Mascara for a colourful flutter that instantly draws all eyes.

The Cool ‘n’ Pop 2016 Summer Collection is available from 28 April at all RMK counters.
