While we adore bold colours, neutrals will always have a big place in our hearts. They offer up a feeling of pure comfort, while still being utterly pretty and sophisticated – and this season’s addition goes by the name of Lilac Grey.
The subtlety of lilac in the undertone adds an edge to classic grey – and when it comes to beauty, it also makes for the perfect colour to make your tan pop!
Here are five aways we’re adding lilac grey into our makeup bags and wardrobes this summer…
Lavender-y greys make a pretty alternative to your traditional neutral nail hues and what’s more, they create the illusion your skin has more of a sun kissed glow to it. So essentially, you’re colouring your nails healthy.
Lottie London Nail Polish in Stay Cool Grey, £5.99
A cooling mauve slick of colour may sound a little much, but its actually a really flattering colour when it comes to makeup. Perhaps not one for everyday wear, but apply a little the next time you’re off out to a festival and just wait for the compliments to fly in!

All about the eyes
For a subtle look that’s perfect for weddings or a summery day out, try dusting a little lilac grey across your eyelids.
