Smoulder and Shimmer with the New Nars Fall Collection

The Fall makeup collections are arriving thick and fast at the moment, but one of my favourites is Nars. They've taken a muted, yet interesting, palette as basis of their new collection – and it's the perfect complement to the Autumn/Winter trends.

Expect brilliant neutrals in shimmering tones, such as Isolde, (£23) – a frosted ginger and shimmering copper duo eyeshadow, or the Fez, (£15), a single eyeshadow in a soft, velvety cocoa.

The eye shadows take chocolate and ginger as a starting point, whilst the lip colours, in coral, cherry and mauve, are wearable, yet sophisticated.

Autumn/Winter's palette is all about jarring the smouldering with the subtle – from burnished orange silk at Halston, putty, slate and mushroom-coloured tunic tops at Burberry and a petal, pistachio and nougat collection at Marc Jacobs.

I especially like the dusty rose Dolce Vita blusher, (£18.50) and dusty pomegranate Rebell Yell nail polish, (£13), which would look perfect with one of Bottega Veneta's blue-tinged rose dresses.

The lipsticks, (£17), are flatteringly sheer, from the shimmering cherry blossom shade of Senorita, (pictured) to a spicy coral or a lilac mauve lip gloss – the fabulously named Beautiful Liar and Female Trouble, respectively. They're ideal for a pretty, trans-season look too.

The collection will be available nationwide from August.
