Nicola Roberts’ range, Dainty Doll, started life using colour palettes for fair skin tones. Nicola has that almost transluscent skin tone that is beautiful to look at but nigh on impossible to find a foundation for! 

The brand has diversified slightly; still catering for hard-to-match pale tones when it comes to bases, but has introduced brighter shades for eyes and lips that are good for all tones. In fact, I think we’ve become more adventurous; pale skin tones have always been able to wear bright shades but I think were told so often they couldn’t, it became a silly beauty myth that they had to stick to certain shades. Of course, with any tone, you have to pick and choose carefully, but now that the internet has opened up a billion and one tutorials for every single skin tone and colourway that exists in the world, there’s always a way to look amazing. 

This collection is young, fresh and vibrant; personally, I love the lipsticks – they’re the most beautiful nude shades with a little kick of something more. So, here’s a selection of the Summer collection that launches in June.
