GO AUBURN FOR AUTUMN As we are getting into the swing of the new season, it only seems right to have a word about auburn. Because auburn, rust, russet or strawberry blonde – call it what you will – gives a softer, prettier approach to make-up to those of us who don’t suit the usual graphic black eyes and red lips of the season. Take the MaxMara show, which drew inspiration from a young Lauren Hutton and united eyes, cheeks and lips in a warm-toned palette. Try Mac Powder Blush in Style (below) or Ambering Rose (both £19.50, maccosmetics.co.uk) for eyes and cheeks. Marc Jacobs New Nudes Sheer Gel Lipstick in In The Mood (£25, johnlewis.com) will do nicely for your pout. Perhaps even more so than a statement eye or a crimson lip, the subtlety of the shade requires great skin. Even if yours is less than flawless, the new Diorskin Forever Perfect Mousse Foundation (£32, dior.com) is a light-as-air formula that will create the ideal canvas for your new autumnal glow.
