My heart normally sinks at the predictable ‘berry’ colours that seem to be a beauty inevitability come the first falling leaf of autumn. This year, though, there’s a twist in the tale with a raft of deep and vampish plums that are a far cry from the usual slew of brownish reds and washed out mauves. Blackened plum, shimmering Pinot Noir grape and slick charcoal shot purples are guaranteed to bring out your wicked side: it’s just a very Mimi thing to do.

Estee Lauder Pure Colour Nail Lacquer in Black Amethyst
Don’t be fooled by the dark pink hint in the bottle; this colour dries down to a depth of glossy aubergine that’s almost patent. Deliciously vampire-chic on both tips and toes against pale skin, it’s equally stylish against the last moments of a summer tan. £12, www.esteelauder.co.uk

The creamy formula nourishes as it colours, and this plum hue is sophisticated and edgy. Don’t forget to emphasise your cupid’s bow and ensure the lip contour is sharp by applying with a lip brush. My practical side loves the incorporated mirror. £20, click here to buy…
