GLOW GIVER

Noth­ing beats that healthy ‘just come in­side from the cold’ colour af­ter a brisk autumn stroll. Well, ex­cept for new Bour­jois Healthy Mix Sorbet Blush, £8.99, which achieves said flush in five sec­onds flat when dabbed atop cheeks. Top trick? Mix a drop with your favourite lip balm for ex­tra ra­di­ance.

HOT TIPS

Sum­mer brights feel too gar­ish, but you don’t want to go full-on win­ter yet. In­stead, try OPI Peru Col­lec­tion Pol­ishes in ‘I Love You Just Be-cusco’, ‘Don’t Toot My Flute’ and ‘Lima Tell You About This Colour’ (£13.50 each). Pick your sig­na­ture shade or chop and change de­pend­ing on your mood.

PAINT THE TOWN…

A slick of scar­let is the beauty equiv­a­lent of a pair of sky-high, over-knee boots – flat­ter­ing, con­fi­dence-boost­ing and fail­safe. Try Chanel’s Rouge Al­lure Liq­uid Pow­ders, £31, which lend lips a soft matte fin­ish that stays put all night long. We love poppy-red Volupte and rasp­berry-toned Rad­i­cal.

EAU YES

First of all, In­sta­gram the bot­tle. Next, spritz OUI by Juicy Cou­ture EDP, £77 for 100ml, all over and let the fresh wa­ter­melon, wild tuberose and rich am­ber trans­port you back to sun-drenched days with frozen daiquiris on tap. A mood-boost in a bot­tle.

HIGH NOTES

Rum, wild fig, tonka bean – if that doesn’t sound like the most heav­enly scent com­bi­na­tion, we’ll be damned. So spicy, so mor­eish, Byredo Eleventh Hour EDP, £160 for 100ml, will have all your friends/col­leagues/to­tal strangers ask­ing what you’re wear­ing.

HIT RECHARGE

Chilly evenings call for a glass (or three) of Mal­bec. Pair this with cen­tral heat­ing and you have a se­ri­ously chal­leng­ing skin sit­u­a­tion. That’s where Shi­seido Waso Beauty Sleep­ing Mask, £39, comes in. Ap­ply be­fore bed and the hy­drat­ing green yuzu and sooth­ing botan­i­cals do their thing overnight, leav­ing you with a glowy com­plex­ion come dawn.

GREEN MA­CHINE

Tak­ing off your make-up can feel like a task too far (es­pe­cially af­ter a night out), but Kiehl’s Her­balIn­fused Mi­cel­lar Cleans­ing Wa­ter, £24, cuts out the faff. 99.8% nat­u­ral­ly­derived, it gen­tly re­moves every last morsel of make-up (mas­cara in­cluded) with­out rins­ing, scrub­bing or rub­bing. Sim­ply soak a cot­ton pad, sweep over skin and you’re good to go.

STAR LIGHT

One too many late nights? Perk up sleepy skin with Dior Rouge Blush in Mid­night Wish, £34. The golden shim­mer is im­pres­sively flat­ter­ing on all skin tones and can be swept over cheek­bones, buffed down the bridge of the nose and blended over eye­lids for an iri­des­cent glow. Plus it comes with a nifty brush for touch-ups on the go.

SKIN SAVIOUR

Ap­ply Elizabeth Ar­den Retinol Ce­ramide Cap­sules, £72, nightly to boost skin cell-turnover for no­tably smoother and more ra­di­ant skin. Stick at it for a month and ex­pect ‘glow­ing skin’ com­pli­ments aplenty come Christ­mas.

MANE FO­CUS

Red­heads and straw­berry blondes, this is for you. A sav­ing grace in­be­tween sa­lon vis­its, Kevin Mur­phy Autumn An­gel, £21, con­tains peachy pig­ments to boost ex­ist­ing warm tones while neu­tral­is­ing green ones. Plus plant ex­tracts leave hair silky soft. A win-win.

POWER COU­PLE

We love this so­phis­ti­cated scent duo by Miller Har­ris. Pow­dered Veil con­jures age-old glam­our cour­tesy of pink pep­per, or­chid and vanilla bour­bon. When you want more bite, Peau San­tal is a smoky blend of warm san­dal­wood, spicy saf­fron and vi­o­let leaf that says deca­dence from the get-go (£105 for 100ml EDP each).

EYES ON THE PRIZE

Could this be au­tum­nal eye pal­ette per­fec­tion? We think so. Just look at it. That sparkling metal­lic brass (top right), the pearles­cent peach (top left) and deeper-than-deep red rust (bot­tom right). Wear alone or blend all four for the ul­ti­mate bronze smoke. NARS Quad Eye­shadow in Sin­ga­pore, £40.
