Get Scandi tan winter glow

Having bronzed, beautiful skin is normally relegated to the summer months (unless of course you're lucky enough to get some winter sun), which means our fake tan is generally gathering dust at the back of the bathroom cabinet. However many fashion houses used a new glow on the Autumn/Winter 15 catwalks .

"Tan is a trend right now," Terry Barber, MAC's director of make-up artistry, told Cover Media. "There's a difference between a winter and a summer tan. It's chic après ski, rather than beach. It's a bit more Scandinavian, Nordic tan - like the Bond girls in '60s and '70s."

In Paris models walking for Chloé showed off flushed cheeks and freckles, while DSquared2 matched make-up with the Native American fashion theme in Milan; think pink cheeks and wide awake eyes. Moschino also took the make-up trend and ran with it, with models, including Gigi Hadid, rocking some serious sun kissed skin.

"Tanning came back with realness to it," Terry added. "Spring/Summer 15 was all about freckles but now it's focused on a weathered, mountain air tan."

To get the flushed look of Chloé and DSquared2 opt for a pink blush, and sweep it across cheekbones all the way up to your temples. Keep the rest of your make-up subtle, adding long mascara-brushed eyelashes but leaving skin to look fresh rather than too done.

MAC's pink Well Dressed or the more peachy/pink Fleur Power are both great choices, with the powder blush lasting all day.

If you prefer a liquid blush, try Bourjois' Aqua Blush in 04 Berry Nice. The water-light gel leaves skin refreshed and with a bare skin sensation, perfect for this trend.

If you're a fake tan enthusiast than make like Moschino and get a bottled glow. Tan trailblazers St. Tropez have a number of products solely for the face, with our favourite being the Luxe Face Oil. It doesn't go on streaky or block pores, plus it's light weight and hydrating.

Bondi Sands is also a brand that will deliver you an awesome tan, with its Gradual Tanning Milk Everyday Face a top pick.
