The catwalks for autumn/winter 2018 showcased some super-wearable make-up trends, making us excited to change up our look for the season.
Autumn brings an exciting new colour palette – we love the bold, bright lips as featured on the runways from Rochas and Alexander McQueen, the chic pastel eyeshadow that was a favourite of Marni, and the rosy-cheeked look favoured by Moschino, Balmain and Loewe.
Celebrities quickly took up the mantel, with Kerry Washington seen on the red carpet in soft pastel hues, and Priyanka Chopra following suit in deep, berry make-up shades.
Tempted to give your look a new-season twist? Here’s our pick of essential additions for your autumn make-up bag…
