All things bright and beautiful…


Spring/summer is the perfect time to re-think your make up look. With the changes in the light and the temperature, it’s often the ideal opportunity to freshen up your make up bag.

And what better place to look for inspiration than the spring/summer ’17 catwalks? Where bases, complexions and nails were toned down, lips and eyes saw radiant splashes of colour. Bright red lips were a recurring trend on the catwalk and as for eyes - any colour goes, but the brighter the better!

Here are a few recommendations on where to get hold of those essential make up items for this season’s trends.


As one of the leading make up brands on the market, Mac is always an incredibly popular choice with our customers from around the world. Mac’s foundations and concealers provide ideal coverage no matter your skin tone or type. In addition, the brand’s range of primers, BB and CC creams give you the perfect base to build on for your summer look.

Mac’s lipsticks, glosses and liners are known as being some of the best in the business and their Ruby Woo shade of red lippy is perfect for the season’s bold red lip trend.

As far as eyes go, Mac have a range of over 100 shades in single shadow colours alone. If you want a number of shades to try, their eye colour palettes are perfect for experimenting with different looks!


This season’s nails are all about nude and glitter. As one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional hand, foot and nail care products, OPI is always ahead of the trend.

Their new no-light-gel-lacquer collection in 5 muted nude shades offers a long-lasting look and their glitter polishes give you a choice of going all-out chunky glitter, or else adding a subtle shimmery top coat. 

It is worth noting that nail varnish is classed as a ‘dangerous’ item when being shipped to some countries and as such, certain rules and additional tariffs can apply. Please contact us before making your purchase to double check if this applies to your desired shipping address.
