A new - colder - season is upon us and and it's time to take stock and consider the key beauty looks, trends and tips from the autumn/winter 2017 shows.
Perfectly Imperfect Lips
Tired of smudging your lipstick and having to constantly reapply it? Not a problem - several of the autumn/winter 2017 shows saw imperfect-looking lips being painstakingly created backstage for just that effect.
Gently tousled, cool-girl hair is rarely far from the catwalks, but this season it was more prominent than ever thanks to Sam McKnight debuting his eponymous hair styling range backstage at the shows.
Bold, black eyeliner made its mark on the autumn/winter catwalks at all four fashion weeks, but Milan was where it really took hold. At Prada, Pat McGrath topped the smudgy black eyes with a flash of blue, at Marni kohl was drawn directly onto the waterline and at Versace it was applied in great swoops from the inner corners of the eyes to the temples.
Bold natural brows are going nowhere fast, but their bleached-out conterparts have also made a striking return this season. At Proenza Schouler, Diane Kendal created a monochrome look with barely-there brows, whilst unsaturated brows were paired with pastel eyeshadow at Mary Katrantzou and subtly "softened" for an almost pastel effect at Altuzarra.
A minimal, natural-looking beauty with a focus on glowing skin has been trending for more seasons than we can count, but for autumn/winter 2017 the look has evolved into something more sophisticated and nuanced. Whilst in previous seasons we've heard words like "raw" and "bare" backstage, this season was all about those finishing touches that make for a flawless, subtly groomed appearance.
