The faded lip, most striking in shades of pink, was favoured among big designers such as Christian Dior, Prada and Vera Wang who all sent their models stomping down the catwalk with the look.

Why not try it at home by dabbing Topshop Lip Paint in Hibiscus  (a steal at only £4) onto the centre of your lips and blending The Body Shop Concealer (£ 9.00) from the outside in!

Strip Down And Go Nude With An Autumn Glow.

The warm months may be coming to an end but there's no reason why you can't keep your summer glow. The likes of Balamain, Alexanda Wang and Dolce and Gabanna all proved in their Autumn/Winter 14 shows that you can  wear the St.Tropez look right into the winter months.

Make sure you invest in a decent bronzer and highlighter in order to bring out the arm tones in your face. Bag a bargain with Sleek's Highlight and Contour Kit for just £9.99.
