Think pink: Three ways to wear this season’s hottest colour
Monday, July 20th, 2015

From nude to fuchsia, pink is in this summer.  It’s all about finding the perfect shade for you! Just the right shade can add an injection of colour to complete your light, fresh summer look. Easier said than done, right? Sometimes pink can make people feel too girlish, but done the right way it’s flattering and is the perfect way to make a statement, whilst still keeping makeup to a minimum in summer. There are three shades in particular that are going to be this season:

Pink trends

The Pinky Nude – Carrying on from the surge in nudes popularity over autumn and winter, this shade puts a soft, summery twist on it. It’s all about rocking YLBB; not straying too far from the natural pigment of your lips, whilst still drawing just enough attention to them. The Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Proudly Naked does just that with its lightweight, barely-there formula. On nails, this shade looks even more low-key and chic. Go to lipstick shades have been fashion favourite lately when it comes to manicures, and Nails inc Gel Effect Polish in Uptown really does this trend justice.

Peachy Coral – Nails inc’s Gel Polish in Kensington Passage is for those who love bright nails! It’s a popping coral shade that keeps coming back every summer, and we don’t ever seeing it going out of fashion. With the sun out, it’s the perfect excuse to get more colourful with your beauty palette, so luckily the high shine effect of this polish will make it stand out even more. Match it with the less bright, but still incredibly summery, Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayon in Peach on the Beach. Slick this on in a heatwave and your good to go thanks to the SPF15 protection in this hydrating stick.

Raspberry Pink – Bourjois also have more classic pink lovers covered with their Color Boost Lip Crayon in Fuchsia Libre. This will add a glossy raspberry tint to your pout that will last up to 10 hours. It is the ultimate must-have for summer if you want your lips to take centre stage with this juicy shade. The Nails inc Gel Effect Polish in Covent Garden Place offers up the opaque version of this colour. It’s really the kind of pink you can’t go wrong with; work it at the beach, on a summer day out or even to brighten up your office look. The plumping effect of the varnish also gives nails a flawlessly smooth finish that we can’t get enough of.

New in beauty at the Boots Give It A Go event
Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014

We’ve all been there; browsing the beauty aisles of Boots and suddenly half an hour has passed. It’s safe to that Boots is the number one beauty destination for the high street shopper, and there’s a good reason why. Whilst you can always rely on Boots to stock old favourites, essentials and timeless classics, they’re always keeping their fingers firmly on the pulse by bringing you the most exciting new launches beauty has to offer too. We were lucky enough to be invited to the Boots Give It A Go event in London, where they were showcases some of the best their aisles currently have to offer. The campaign is all about daring yourself to step out of the box to try something new, and that’s exactly what we did!

Boots Give It A Go 1Wah London Nails immediate caught our attention with their bright colours and urban vibe. The fact that Wah began life as a fanzine about girls in hip hop says it all. Founder Sharmadean Reid formed Wah into Wah Nails, a nail salon in East London’s heart in Dalston which soon earned a reputation as the coolest nail bar in town. Whether you’re a minimalist french manicure devotee or want to go all out ghetto, Wah Nails have you covered. The great news for all you non-London dwellers is that Wah Nails have now brought out their own range Wah London, including polishes, nail pens, stickers and press on nails…and you guessed it, they’re available at Boots! Our product pick has to be the Trend Kits. Including everything you could ever need for a fun at home manicure session, you can create your own unique nail looks; even share with your friends if you’re feeling generous! The acrylic boxes are also designed to be reusable, so store your beauty bits inside and stack them up and you collect the different Trend Kits throughout the seasons.Boots Give It A Go 2

Latest in Beauty’s e-commerce whizz Fiona then decide to go all out with a mini makeover! Of course no makeover is complete without a hair do, which is where the lovely Sherman Hawthorne came in. After adding some volume and bounce it a round brush and hair drier, it was time to texturise. Trevor Sorbie Styling Texturising Paste was Sherman’s weapon of choice, and it was the perfect product to finish off the look by adding some light definition to Fiona’s natural waves without that stickiness that comes with a lot of hair putties.

We love the Boot’s Give It A Go concept, and here are some of the daring but flattering beauty tips they shared with us…


1. Sheer finish

Adding shimmer to the eyes is the perfect way to adapt any beauty look from day to night. Louise Constad, Independent Make-Up Artist recommends:

“For a sheer finish, start off by blending a medium shimmer shade into the centre of the eyelid. Next, blend a light shade into the inner corners of the eye and blend a darker shade into the outer corners. Finally, apply brown eyeliner to the waterline and give eyelashes a slick of volumising mascara.”


2. Match your liner to your lenses
Don’t shy away from wearing liner just because you wear glasses, instead use it to enhance them! Sarah Jagger, Independent Make-up Artist suggests:

“Eyeliner should be applied according to the type of glasses and the magnification effects. The colour should complement the rest of the eye make-up, as well as the frames. If the frames are thicker, apply a thicker line of eyeliner in a colour darker than the natural eye colour. Line along the lash line all the way around the eyes so that the eyes really pop!”


3. Create sharp cheekbones
The secret to sharp cheekbones is having the right tools and playing tricks with the light. Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator is perfect for creating a natural-looking luminosity and also helping to contour the cheeks and brow bones. Or why not try blending No7 Instant Radiance Highlighter for a more subtle glow.
