Tips and tweaks to fast-forward you into the new season…

Kicking off next week, London Fashion Week may already be thinking about next spring/summer, but we’re still wrapping our heads and make-up bags around the trends for this autumn/winter.

We swotted up on the five beauty trends to fast forward you into the new season. So all you need do is read, enjoy and repeat back home…


1. Eggshell skin: Somewhere between a matte and a shiny finish, this new season skin has a subtle, satin-y lustre that makes us all look like we’ve got one serious glow. Top tip? Use a damp sponge to stipple on your foundation for a super light, luminous look. Or, for those that want more coverage, apply a layer of foundation, a layer of facial mist, then another layer of foundation for the ultimate sheeny radiance.



2. The big blush comeback: If the bright, poppy blush at Michael Kors, Kate Spade and Chloe isn’t enough to convince you that statement rouge is making its return, then the ‘triple cheek’ at Topshop Unique surely must be. Inspired by girls having a whale of a time in the Highlands of Scotland, the deep, stained flush was achieved using multiple products. Our top tip is to layer a brick red lipstick over your usual powder or cream blush to achieve the best possible flush effect.




 3. Super lashes: For all those that think their eyes disappear without a swoosh of their trusty mascara, rejoice – because lashes are big this season. Layer lengthening and volume mascaras over top and bottom lashes – you can even ‘back brush’ the roots as you would your hair to amp up some extra density and lift. Just take the Holly Fulton, Rachel Zoe and Giambattista Valli shows for read and believe us when we say that more is more when it comes to mascara this season.




4. Noir nails: Welcome to the season of the little black nail. Wear a jet shade alone – or layer it beneath a deep Nails Inc red or blue. Just keep them short, neat and ultra glossy.

5. Outdoorsy hair: Hurrah for the professional stylists who this season made hair that was ‘styled by the elements’ – rather than perfectly blow-dried – cool. Easy peasy to achieve, the best thing is to smooth in a thickening gel or scrunch in a salt spray –then let the air dry your hair. The more wind-tousled it looks, the better – as the wispy twist at Margaret Howell and side-swept look at Topshop Unique made abundantly clear.





Now here’s three ways to ensure your skin is prepped and primed to pull off those new looks…
