This year’s Emmys were dominated by scarlet and burgundy. We tell you how to paint the town with dresses in the ‘it’ colour of the moment.

The right hues

For work: Red is a bold colour for work, so keep it simple with a minimal soft mouth. But play up the eyes with mascara and maybe a touch of kohl smudged under the eyes.

For play: With a casual look, keep your make-up understated. Use cheek and lip stains, and maybe add a bit of mascara.

For the evening

Use loads of mascara and an earthy, sexy lip colour. Remember to stay away from gloss and wear your hair up.

Most importantly, don’t match your lipstick to your dress. Leave that to the accessories.
