From deep plum to rich burgundy, if you’re going to stick to one shade of lippy this autumn, make sure it’s in a berry tone. Always line the lips first with a similar colour pencil and go a little less heavy on the centre of your lips with the lipstick to create a contour effect. This will also add brightness to your face.

When it comes to metallic eyeshadow don’t just use one colour, blend more than one sparkly shade across the eye to get a unique look. Don’t worry about being neat, you can mix shades of gold, silver and bronze to create a unique colour. Just brush over with a dry brush to blend. Finish with sweeping black eyeliner.

Top Tip: The key to having dewy skin is prepping your skin before you even apply any make-up. Make sure you exfoliate and moisturise your face and always use a good primer. After applying a light foundation finish with highlighter and strobe cream across the face and you’ll have the skin of a supermodel (well, almost!).

Black graphic liner
This autumn glam up your eyes with a black and bold eyeliner. Use a liquid pen or thin brush to get a strong graphic line in the crease of your eyelid. Leave the rest of your lid natural or fill in with a dark or metallic eyeshadow. If you prefer a more intense gothic look, line your bottom lids as well and use an eyeshadow brush to smudge the liner on your top lids while it’s still a little wet. Finish by dusting a dark grey or black shadow around the edge.

Lashings of lashes
Layer up black mascara to create a retro sixties look that Twiggy would be proud of. When applying mascara to your bottom lashes try twisting the brush upright so you can reach each individual lash. Don’t forget to always apply two layers.
