Despite the onset of cooler weather, The Duchess of Sussex was spotted sporting an ethereal end-of-summer glow as she attended the Women's Final held at the National Tennis Center in New York on Saturday.

In fact, Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lopez were also flaunting a similar radiance this weekend, reminding us that lows in temperature do not have to equate to lacklustre or dull skin. As we progress into autumn, we still want our skin to carry a little of the summer months with it. From warmer eyes to subtly bronzed cheeks, here's how to have a defiant glow that lasts post-summer:

Invest in a tanning serum

Tanning and taking good care of your skin are usually two separate notions when it comes to skin care routines - mainly because self-tanning products are often filled with heavily pigmented chemicals that simply sit on the outer layer of the skin to build your desirable tan. Active ingredients that take care of your skin would usually be a completely separate part of your routine.

Enter Tan-Luxe's Super Glow Hyaluronic Self-Tan Serum. Skin care and self-tanning in one bottle. Patented ‘Transparent Tanning’ technology creates a buildable sun-kissed tan, whilst a hydrating hyaluronic acid complex and vitamin E work to nourish the skin and protect it from free radical damage for a collagen-rich glow. This is the real definition of glowing from the inside out.

Add warm hues to your eyes

This season's catwalks were enough to confirm that glowing, dewy skin isn't reserved for the summer, and blending russet, terracotta and golden tones on the eyes is also a perfect way to enhance your bronzer and secure an autumnal glow that can take you from day to night. This is especially effective for those with warm, olive to brown skin tones like Jennifer Lopez who can experiment more with rich colours and opt for a full-faced glow without looking overdone.

Add a slight flush of colour to your cheeks for a more subtle glow

Even Nicole Kidman, a thorough SPF advocate, is partial to a little sun-kissed glow. If you're slightly apprehensive about appearing too bronzed or perhaps have fairer skin that is usually suited to peachier tones, a cream textured colour, such as By Terry's Glow Stick in Peachy Petal, can be effortlessly blended into the cheeks and forehead, providing you with a healthy complexion that still looks natural.

Or, for something even more subtle, opt for Glossier's Cloud Paint - a dewy, buildable cheek tint. Just be sure to pick a tone that is slightly more bronze for your skin tone rather than playing it safe with a blush colour.
