THE AW18 catwalk shows offered an abundance of make-up inspiration, from bold brights to metallic shimmer, and modern twists on make-up classics. From the hundreds of shows in the four fashion capitals, we've distilled some key trends and the products you need to get the look.

Shimmer and shine: Seventies disco sparkle was a major theme for AW18, with glitter sprinkled liberally on models' foreheads at Preen and all over their faces at Giambattista Valli. Will these looks translate to real life? They will once they're toned down (a lot), but there was more wearable shimmer by way of jewel-toned eyes at Michael Halpern and metallic lips at Stella Jean.

Try: NYX Face and Body Glitter in Silver, £6

Black eyes: The one product the backstage pros couldn't get enough of at the autumn shows? Black eyeliner. From razor-sharp liquid flicks at Molly Goddard and David Koma to smudged and smokey pencil scrawls at Max Mara and Carolina Herrera, a punky sensibility reigned.

Try: Marc Jacobs Magic Marc'er Liquid Eyeliner in Blacquer, £23, Net-a-Porter

Bright eyes: There was a rebellious spirit, too, in the way colour was used on the eyes, with opaque citrus hues daubed at Kenzo and Palmer Harding, abstract aqua eyeliner used at Jeremy Scott, and neon eyelashes seen at Dries van Noten.

Red lips: Designers spoke about female empowerment a lot at the shows, and that theme came through in the make-up as well, with a return to the bold 'power lip', from orangey-red at Dolce & Gabbana to blood red at Alexander McQueen. But the texture is non-negotiable: It's got to be a stamp of rich, matte pigment.
