Wine hues are key this autumn
As the weather gets frosty and the nights darker, I'll definitely be warming myself up with a glass of red by the fire, but wine could provide more than a delicious beverage this autumn, it seems.
Kate Middleton has spent the summer in duck egg blues, light greens and sophisticated creams, but sensing the changing of the seasons, she has recently been spotted out in wine hues.
I'm a massive fan of Kate Middleton and her trend-setting ways, and was delighted to see the Duchess sporting one of autumn's hottest trends in a burgundy skirt suit.
Kate's trademark tends to be respectful but on-trend, and at a visit to London's Middle Temple, she donned a matching double-breasted suit jacket and flared skirt, with their burgundy hue perfectly contrasting with her light brown hair.
The young royal paired the outfit with simple black heels and black opaque tights, rather than the nude tights she has been sporting all summer – dark tights are so forgiving and this is definitely a look I'll definitely be trying out.
Liz Thompson, founder and editor OrganicBeautySource.com, explained "nothing says fall like wine hues".
She suggested opting for a rich mulberry or merlot shade on nails, and spicing up this autumn's fresh-faced trend with a slick of darker lipstick in the evening.
When it comes to make-up, the expert suggested that women look to Emma Stone and Jessica Alba who both know how to pull off the fresh faced look.
I love my full brows, and they are definitely key to getting this season's striking look. Ms Thompson acknowledged: "Brooke Shields has been the star of flaunting full brows for decades!"
If, like me, you're used to sporting a full face of make-up, you may be a bit concerned about getting rid of the slap for a fresh-faced feel so the expert offered up a few tips.
"Hydration is key, even for those with oilier skin," she said.
"Switching from gel to cream cleanser or adding a facial oil to your regimen will help to keep skin soft, supple and healthy.
"Don’t wait until you have redness and irritation to add in this step."
Will you dare to bare your fresh face this autumn?
