September brings a change of mood as autumn falls. Lisa Millard looks forward to the refreshing beauty looks that will shape the season ahead

Back to Black

The eyes still have it. Mask-wearing is still with us and eyes are prized with lashings of black eyeliner. Create a delicate cat-eye flick or smoulder by blending shadow and liner into an alluring frame for peepers.

Invest in some fringe benefits – they are all the rage for autumn. From blunt bangs and sculptural side-slicks to whisps and flicks, the fringe is having a major moment. Add a touch of hair oil to ensure a smooth and shiny finish.
