IN PARTNERSHIP: If you scaled back on the makeup over the summer then it’s time to invest in a few new additions for FW20, which you can get at The Galleria Al Maryah Island in Abu Dhabi.
Bold lips and eyes were seen across multiple runways this season, making for strong party season looks this FW20. Hair was kept minimal (with the occasional addition of bows or a headband) instead, the focus was on healthy hair rather than complex styling. One of the hottest haircare launches of the year comes from Dyson. The Corrale hair straightener uses flexing manganese copper alloy plates to make styling easy, efficient and less damaging on the hair. The cord-free technology means that you can have perfect mane anywhere you go and over time your hair will feel stronger and bouncier.

Return of the classic
Just like a little black dress, red lips never go out of style and this season we spotted this crimson hue at Oscar De La Renta, Givenchy and Jil Sander. Precision is key so make sure to line and fill the lips with a creamy lip liner before coating them in your preferred shade of red. Use powder and concealer for correcting any mistakes and keep the rest of your look minimal. It’s all about the power pout.
Use: Charlotte Tilbury Luscious Lip Slick lipstick and lip liner in Super Starlet to recreate the Oscar De La Renta look. The Charlotte Tilbury store is located on the ground floor.
There’s a lot to be said for a simple ponytail, but there’s something incredibly chic when it’s worn low. Follow in the footsteps of Carolina Herrera, Valentino and Elie Saab and start with sleek hair by applying an anti-frizz product before drying and straightening. Use a simple hair band and place it low on the neck. Feel free to add a little hair oil on the tail to give it some extra shine.
Use: Dyson Corrale Hair Straightener to create the Elie Saab look. Dyson is located on level two.
If you’re looking for a subtle touch of decadent glamour then we suggest investing a golden eyeshadow palette to bring some shine to the lids without overpowering. As seen at Tom Ford and Gabriela Hearst, the warm golden hue verges on a copper shade bringing intensity to the eyes, especially when you wing out the colour. It’s playful and pretty, managing to work for day and night.
Use: Huda Beauty Rose Gold REMASTERED Eyeshadow Palette at Sephora or Make Up Forever Star Lit Diamond Powder in 109 Golden to create the Tom Ford look. Sephora and Make Up Forever are both located on the ground floor.
It has never been a better time to give your complexion a break, but that doesn’t mean you have to bin your concealer. Glowing skin is not just down to a solid skincare routine, like Burberry, Victoria Beckham, Gucci and Chanel have proven, it’s more about a focused application of the highlighter on the cheekbones to achieve that dewy fresh face result.
Use: NARS highlighting powder in Ibiza or NYX Cosmetics Born To Glow Liquid Illuminator to create the Burberry look. NARS and NYX are both located on the ground floor.
Half-up hair is back and feels fresher than ever as spotted at Chanel and Rodarte. Keep your hair chic and simple by following in the footsteps of Tory Burch and a Victorian twist to each side of your head. All you have to do apply some texture spray, rough dry the hair downwards, find central parting and then grab the front part of your hair from each side and twist. Pin in place and add a little hairspray to pat down any flyways on the parting.
Use: Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer to create the Tory Burch look. Tory Burch is located on level two.
