Get the glow

When the temperature drops it's tempting to reach for heavy foundation and concealer but this season it's all about creating a luminous glow with primers, illuminating serums and highlighting powders. Instead of masking, these products have the effect of blurring imperfections whilst imparting a healthy radiance. Think real life Instagram filter!

Bolts of colour

The AW18 catwalks were full of theatrical pops of colour on the eyes - from flashes of cobalt eyeliner under the bottom lashes to magenta pinks and yellows from lash to brow. If you're not quite brave enough for so much drama, a simple sweep of coloured eyeliner will really light up your eyes. Go on, be bold.
