Autumn/Winter 2014 Beauty trends

THE best place to discover next season's beauty trends is backstage at the shows, where the hair and make-up teams are busy creating the looks that will define the season. 

Donna KaranCharlotte Tilbury lined eyes in black and used silver shadow for a smoky effect at Donna Karan, pairing the look with dewy skin. For hair, Eugene Souleiman created a flat, gelled circle around the head, whilst the remaining hair was pinned into a messy, matt twist at the back.

3.1 Phillip LimAn almost masculine take on minimal beauty was on show at 3.1 Phillip Lim, with full brows, glowing skin and contoured cheeks by Francelle Daly. Hair, by Paul Hanlon, was textured and swept back from the face, with oil applied through the roots for a wet-look finish.

Diane von FurstenbergThe Ballet Russes was the inspiration at Diane von Furstenberg, where Orlando Pita created messy ballerina buns with an undone finish. The make-up was equally pretty, with glossy mauve lids and plenty of contouring and highlighting by James Kaliardos giving models an off-duty ballerina beauty.

ThankoonAlmost like an upside-down eyeliner flick, Diane Kendal's make-up look at Thakoon focused upon rust-coloured eyeliner worn along the lower lash line and flicked out, whilst the rest of the make-up was simple and pared-back. Hair, by Odile Gilbert, was textured and slightly wet-looking, swept casually to one side.

Derek LamHeavy, petrol-coloured eyeshadow was applied all around models' eyes at Derek Lam. Make-up artist Tom Pecheux kept the rest of the make-up simple, to let the ringed eyes do the talking. For hair, Orlando Pita created ponytails that were centre-parted and tight at the top, and voluminous and textured through the length of the hair.

Alexander Wang Guido Palau was the brains behind the futuristic hair at Alexander Wang, which was parted low on one side and lacquered into low-tied ponytails that were tucked into coats and jackets. For make-up, androgyny was key. Diane Kendal kept make-up to a minimum and bleached brows for a uniform, monochrome look.

AltuzarraOdile Gilbert pulled hair back into DIY-style buns at Altuzarra. Eyes took the focus when it came to the make-up, with Tom Pecheux using a green-based gold glitter across the lids. The rest of the face was kept neutral, with lips painted a glossy nude.

Prabla GurungHair at Prabal Gurung was straightened and side-parted by Paul Hanlon and his team before being tucked into jewellery and scarves for the catwalk. Make-up, by Diane Kendal, was minimal, matt and masculine, with groomed brows, lightly flushed cheeks and beige shadow to define the eyes.

Rag & BoneWith their graphic black liner and blush-free cheeks, the models at Rag & Bone wore a tomboy take on classic make-up, by Gucci Westman. Paul Hanlon used plenty of product to create a mussed-up texture in the hair, scraping it back into ultra-casual knots for a "don't care" cool.

Jason WuBoyish beauty at Jason Wu, with Diane Kendal using a light foundation, blush and subtle eyeliner to complement the straight brows. Odile Gilbert pulled hair back into messy chignon-like styles, kept tight to the head at the sides and with a little volume at the top.

My favourite make ups are by: 3.1 Phillip LimAltuzarra, Jason Wu & Prabal Gurung. Which ones do you like the most?
