Check out her step-by-step guide in the video below.

And as nails went stripy, hair went sixties. Creating a slight bouff at the front with a flash of GHD Root Lift, stylist Kenna slicked the sides down with the Final Fix Hairspray.

So far, so sophisticated. Bringing the psychedelic reference to the table, the lime green shade in the Eye Divine Supreme Palette from the new PPQ for Sleek Makeup collection (in Superdrug from Tuesday) graced eyelids in a half moon shape before Truly Mattly Lip Gloss in pink Soul perfected the colour clash.

Bold, luxe and just a little bit bonkers it may be but PPQ is already rocking SS13’s best party hard look.
