We're coming into Autum Winter 2018, and this means one thing: new beauty trends. With lots of great looks coming off the catwalk, we have selected our edit of 7 of the very best so you can create them easily at home.

Do the glitterbug

Sparkle is well and truly back for Autumn Winter 18, and was seen on the catwalk for fashion giant Giambattista Valli. While we're not advocating covering your face with the silver stuff like the brand (you can if you like), we do think adding a touch of sparkle to your routine is simply gorgeous for the colder months.

One of our favourite produts is the BLEACH LONDON Glitter Ati Palette, which contains 9 shades of glitter which can be used on both the face and body to create a sparkling look this AW18 season.

Bold bolts of colour

We love bright pops of colour for Autumn Winter 18, especially on the eyes. Luckily, there are lots of makeup brands who have already jumped on the hype and have everything from eyeliners to eyeshadows packed with gorgeously bright pigments.

One of our favourites is the NYX Swear By It Palette, which contains 40 shades of shadow, which can be worn individually or mixed together to create your own custom shade.

Chic blowdry

The chic blowdry is back, which means so is our collection of styling products and our favourite curling tong. Forget messy up-do's and barely there done texture, Autumn Winter 18 is all about taming your mane and getting those locks glossy and smooth.

We love the Balmain Hair Thermal Spray for keeping hair protected, soft and shiny throughout the blowdry and styling process.

Lengthened lashes

Think spider-length lashes this season, as we take the minimal look and give it an upgrade. Whatever mascara you're wearing for Autumn Winter 2018, make sure you wear lots of it and pair with a good lash routine to keep your lashes healthy and lusciously long.

We love Eyeko's Black Magic Mascara, which lifts and adds curves to lashes, all without clumping. Plus, it stays put and locks in the deepest midnight colour for up to 12 hours.

Statement lips

Powerful lips are about to become a huge trend for Autumn Winter 18, esepcially those with red and deep scarlet hues. We're loving this trend as it's empowering, bold and strong, and to complement it, a lot of new products are entering the market with new textures and dramatic finishes.

We love Urban Decay's Lo Fi Lip Mousse, which has a unique powder formula, and can be patted onto the lips to build-up to a gorgeous stained finish.

Prepped skin

This season, it's all about beautifully prepped skin and making sure your complexion is as smooth as can be underneath the foundation. Instead of layering makeup products, layer your skincare with moisturisers, serums and essences for a glowing and smooth complexion.

We love the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, which is a makeup artists secret saviour BTS, as it contains a cocktail of vitamins which feed the skin with nutrition, whilst also prepping it for makeup application.

Bright hair

Bright locks are in this season, which means it's time to try out some of the hottest trends. We love playing around with hair colour, especially since BLEACH LONDON launched with us. If you have ever fancied trying out a new hair colour, Autumn Winter 2018 if the time to do it. Don't forget, if you're going to colour your hair, make sure you use nourishing products in your haircare routine to keep it soft and healthy.

We love the BLEACH LONDON Super Cool Colour in Tangerine Dream which gives colour from a fire engine red to a dusky rose.
