Q. What’s the best beauty tip your mother gave you? A. Always remove make-up before bed, no matter how late it is, how tired I am and how much I’ve had to drink! I’ll be passing on the advice to my daughter. VICTORIA WILKINS Rubbing Vaseline on your wrists before spraying with perfume makes it last longer. LAURA MARIE Pillowcases in silk or satin are best for your skin – and less likely to cause wrinkles in the long-term. BELLA WHITE A dab of light eyeshadow in the inner corners of your eyes brightens them, even when you’re feeling exhausted. ANNE DOUGLAS Don’t throw away mascara when it’s finished.

‘i’ve never felt so powerful…   & so calm’

‘It’s grounding having a temperamental boiler,’ says Emma Thompson, who is perched on a kitchen worktop, twiddling knobs and searching for any sign of a pilot light.

Need a quick fashion fix? Accessories are an easy way to try any trend, so invest in animal-print shoes to wear with trousers or skirts. GO BACK TO BASICS Minimalists will adore the new fuss-free trend. A pared-back palette with layers of sumptuous fabrics and relaxed silhouettes feels fresh and modern without being too try-hard. Try autumn’s style hero – the cashmere hoodie – which will update everything from tailored jackets to silk blouses. MEET AUTUMN’S HERO HUE It’s official, brown is the new black – and it’s super flattering for everyone. Master tonal dressing by wearing soft latte, caramel and chocolate shades top-to-toe. Try…

the high-shine skirt

PLEAT Mid-length A-line skirts flatter pear shapes perfectly. Keep colours tonal for a sophisticated mix of textures and prints. PENCIL Pencil skirts suit narrow and curvy frames alike. Pair them with sleek trainers for a modern look. TIP Contrast bold sequins with oversized knits to make them more daytime and less ‘disco’. TIP Go tailored on top with a smart jacket to keep volume in check. TIP Gold flatters all skin tones and is definitely the metallic of the moment. TIP Boyish brogues add an on-trend twist and prevent pleated skirts looking ‘matronly’.…
