New in: Neve Mineral Blush & Eyeshadow & a Halloween Look!


Have you seen our new range of mineral eyeshadows and blushers from the gorgeous Italian Neve Cosmetics?! The Double Duochromes (£6.50 each) are particularly stunning and we’ll be rocking the Dragon shade for Halloween!


Dragon works beautifully complemented by Lavender Fields as a highlight as it picks out the gorgeous silvery purple and green tones for a really dramatic effect!


With such a dramatic eye, play down the rest of your makeup with Neve’s soft mineral blush in English Rose (£10.50), buffed in with this super-cute flat topped Kabuki (10.95).

Complete the look with Branwen’s Feather from Butter London for a striking is-it-black-or-purple mani.

Get the Look: X-Factor’s Charlie - Rainbow Bright Eyes!

Pics of Charlie from MK1 were all over Facebook and Twitter following Saturday night’s second live X-Factor show.  We loved her rainbow bright eyes and thought she looked incredibly pretty, so of course, scoured the shelves to see what we could come up with to recreate the look.

 X Factor Charlie rainbow eyes

Here’s our step by step guide on how to get Charlie’s look!


1. A primer is essential when using this amount of colour. Lime Crime Eyeshadow Helper is the best we’ve tried for maximum colour payoff & lasting power.

4.  pastello-occhi-avorio-beige2  5. centrifuchsia__


2+3. Add Lime Crime Aquataenia in vertical rainbow stripes like Charlie’s, or your own design of choice.  Apply it wet for extra drama & a shimmery finish!

4. Balance out the colour on your lower lashline with Neve Pastello in Teal, using the same colour to add definition to your socket line.

5. Complete the look with Lime Crime Centrifuchsia Lipstick


This is the kind of result you can expect with the Lime Crime Aquataenia, a slightly softer version of Charlie’s look! 


If you’re feeling extra bold, you could go for even brighter tones with Italian brand, Neve’s Intensissimi Palette.

Get the Look: Nude Nails

Nude nails were one of the biggest beauty trends forecasted on Fashion Week catwalks… they will be huge in Spring 2013, but we think they’re the perfect interlude between Summer brights and rich Autumnal hues.

Varying from barely there to blush, cool and taupe toned nudes, the nude nail look is super sophisticated.  Here are a few of our faves…
