Polished and perfect skin was the reigning makeup trend on the catwalks this season.

Prada, Valentino, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Ralph Lauren all focused on the face with the hottest makeup trend of the season: cashmere skin. 

The cashmere skin trend is all about highlighting natural beauty. The skin's texture - unlike last season's dewy look - is soft and powdery, youthful, prepped and picture perfect.

The first (and most important) rule for cashmere skin is to start with a good base.

Foundation and concealer is sheer and minimal, and used only where needed.

Soft powders sculpt the cheekbones, and highlighting powders give off a pearlescent glow to the bridge of the nose, brow bone and cupid's bow.

Eyeshadow colours are soft and natural in hues of brown, peach and bronze. 

You don't need to be a makeup artist to create cashmere skin; it's all in the products you use.
