As the seasons transition and the vibrant hues of summer fade into the warm, earthy tones of autumn, it’s time to update your skincare and makeup routine to embrace the beauty of the changing season. One of the most coveted looks for this time of year is the glossy autumn skin – a radiant and dewy complexion that exudes both elegance and warmth. This guide will take you through the steps to achieve the glossy autumn look, with the help of the India Knight’s Edit, expertly curated from her column in The Sunday Times Style. 


The shift from the warm days of summer to the cooler, drier months of autumn demands a shift in skincare practices. Achieving glossy autumn skin requires a delicate balance of hydration, protection, and nourishment. Pamper your skin with Guinot’s Masque Essentiel Nutri Confort and for an instant radiance boost, turn to the Masque Essentiel Dynamisant Anti-Fatigue. In just 3 minutes, this mask exfoliates, rejuvenates, and transforms your complexion, leaving you with a radiant autumn glow. Moreover, with the days growing shorter and the nights longer, resort to Shiseido’s Vital Perfection Uplifting and Firming Express Eye Mask to counteract the signs of weariness and lacklustre.


Luminous skin remains a perennial trend. Prime, shield, and refine your glossy autumn skin using Sculpted by Aimee’s Beauty Base. Choose between the Golden Glow, which imparts a subdued golden luminosity, or the Pearl Glow. For a seamless transition from skincare to makeup, adopt Erborian BB Crème in Nude, which will perfect your complexion within seconds while preserving a natural radiance that is sure to evoke envy.


During the autumn months, our focus naturally gravitates towards the eyes. Enhance the allure of your gaze with UKLASH Eyelash Enhancing Serum to lend your lashes a longer, fuller, and more voluminous appearance. To elevate your gaze further, follow up with Chantecaille’s Mini Longest Lash Mascara. And for those days when you’re in a Halloween mood, yearning to channel your inner Wednesday Addams, outline your eyes with Trish McEvoy’s Intense Gel Eyeliner in Arabian Nights.


Embrace the enchanting hues of autumn with Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick Eye Colour in Rosegold. Employ it as an eyeliner along the lash line for a subtle effect or blend it across the lid for a more pronounced impact.

Conclude your glossy ensemble with Lisa Eldridge’s Gloss Embrace Lip Gloss in the shade Affair. This hybrid lip care and colour infusion rejuvenates lips with nourishing oils and butters, leaving them smooth, cushioned, and plump.


To encapsulate the essence of autumn, finish your look with the alluring scent of Ormonde Jayne’s EVERNIA EDP. With notes of lily, oakmoss, cardamom, cashmeran and musk, this fragrance sets the tone for your seasonal transformation.

With these expertly selected products, inspired by India Knight’s column in The Sunday Times Style, you can curate your own journey to achieving glossy autumn skin. Embrace the changing season with a modern twist on classic elegance, as you enhance your complexion, define your features, and radiate a warm and captivating glow.
