The natural, unmade face was allover the A/W 10 catwalks; news is, when it comes to beauty this season, less is definitely more. So all hail Brit actress Gemma Arterton who bravely road-tested the trend at the premiere of her new flick Tamara Drewe this week, paring her stunning Gucci sheath dress with the most minimal of make-up and understated hair. Of course working a trend such as this is easy when you're as fresh-faced and downright gorgeous as Gemma, but I am a strong believer that the natural look is always fresher and more youthful than a face fulla' slap. Be inspired by Gemma and let the natural look guide your beauty purchases this season.

This A/W I am dreaming of purchasing a cape; there is nothing more appealing to me than clothing myself in a garment that is one step away from donning a giant blanket.
Alas, capes aren't the most practical of outerwear, they prevent the wearer from casually slinging a bag over the shoulder, deny excessive arm movement and swamp petite torsos. But nothing exudes solstice chic better than a cape; pared with cosy knee high boots there is no garment quite so apt to don when kicking up crunchy autumn leaves.
My favourite cape the high street is currently touting is this super-cute cuddly number complete with on-trend toggle fastenings, priced at £80 from ASOS.COM.
Contrast trim cape,£80 available from ASOS.COM here.
