Another busy day in New York that has brought about the following noteworthy news:

1. Cheeks are the new lips. Wait I know it sounds weird but hear me (or rather make-up artist James Kaliardos) out, 'your cheeks are a really underused part of the face but I love making a feature out of them. Think about adding texture and dimension to your cheeks rather than just colour, with gloss, shine and highlight. Luminescent cheeks make skin look alive and are so flattering'.

Me and James.

2. Talking of texture I managed to grab five minutes with the Creative Nails team at Catherine Malandrino who told me textured nails are the way forward, and all you need is a fibre-free cotton pad or a make-up sponge. Once you've applied your colour lightly pat over the nails to get a leather-esque pattina in the polish - it can be as neat or haphazard as you like. Once dry apply a top coat as normal. Genius.

3. Asymmetry is in according to hair stylist Eugene Souleiman who gave models at DKNY off-centre ponytails. Inspired by hair after you've been horse riding, they snaked down one shoulder, full of soft texture and airy volume.

I'm off to book a horse riding lesson. See you tomorrow...
