Big hair may be hot this season but sleek and shiny works better here (and definitely save the curls for something else). The trick to that just-stepped-of-the-catwalk straight hair, as opposed to just flat hair is to first blow dry with a big round brush like Moroccanoil Large Barrel Brush , before finishing with the irons. Finally spritz with a shine-boosting spray – we love Redken Glistening Mist .
Any ‘tan’ seen this winter has to be light and glowing at most. Try mixing a little self-tan (try Xen-tan face tanner luxe ) into your night cream for a bit of colour without too obvious a commitment. Alternatively, dust a light toned, shimmer-free bronzer over cheekbones.
Dark shades of winter berries and purples (either go glossy or almost matte) look beautiful, as do any deep, dark reds. Or, go understated with a gloss-free balmy nude or soft pink.
Flowers and leather? Just don’t go there. Instead look for warm-skin notes of amber, musk and even scents of ‘leather’ as found in Annick Goutal Grand Amour Eau De Parfum .
Either dark (but steer clear of black, as deep reds, dark chocolate and purple looks
newer) and ultra glossy, or beige shades of nude look equally
