If you like to stay on top of beauty trends, it's worth knowing what's round-the-corner on the hair and make up front.

In New York, dazzling lash lines, oxblood lipstick and textured hairstyles were the talk of the Autumn/Winter 2015 shows. Here are the key looks to note:

Make up: Red lipstick rules

We're not sure if this colour has ever really gone away, but red lips are set to make a comeback next season. At Monique Lhuillier and Carolina Herrera's shows, the statement shade was worn with long lashes, flawless skin and slicked-down hair - but don't be fooled into thinking this classic, clean look is straightforward. At Naeem Khan, make up artist James Boehmer created a "deep matte chocolate red" using three Nars products - the Mysterious Red Velvet Lip Pencil, Mambo Eyeliner and the Jungle Red Lip Liner. There's just one rule when it comes to choosing your red hue next autumn - don't do glossy.

Nails: Go graphic

After normcore nails led the trends at the S/S 15 shows, it looks like nail art is back with a bang for A/W 15. Our favourite look seen backstage? Christian Louboutin Beauté worked with Cushnie et Ochs to create the Sweet Charity nail made up of small square motifs painted in either Wherever or Ni Toi Ni Moi from the pops collection. For girls who like sparkle? The textured bronze nails seen at Badgley Mischka ticked the festive box.

Hair: Play with texture

From the beautifully natural tresses seen on the Rodarte catwalk to the high-shine chignons at Altuzarra, texture was evident in almost every hair look in New York. The stylists' secret? Mousse. Odile Gilbert used Moroccanoil's Volumizing Mousse before applying Hydrating Styling Cream to add a wet-look to the "organic and modernly elegant" updos at Altuzarra, while the grungy waves seen on the Marc by Marc Jacobs models were left to air dry after a heavy coating of Redken's Full Frame product. You don't have to embrace the damp hair thing, though. Look to the super straight, sleek styles at Monique Lhuiller for inspiration on how to do super soft, high-gloss locks.
