Lace Jumpsuits, Embroidered Denim Jackets, Summer Espadrilles and the prettiest Floral Phone Cases make for the most feminine, playful July you’ve ever had!

Jumpsuit: Diane Von Furstenburg

Embroidered Denim Jacket: Alexander McQueen 

Popping Pink Tote: D&G

Espadrilles with Fluoro stripes: Sophia Webster 

Bright phone case: Casetify

Perfume: Marc Jacobs Oh Lola!


Roses & Sequins on this ultra glam Ashish jacket, the chic simplicity of an Ayton Gasson play suit and edgy Gucci block heels and a Vivienne Westwood envelope clutch make for the ultimate summer evening ensemble. Red, black and denim… classic colours with a twist!


The lace is on with this floaty Self Portrait jumpsuit. Keep it casual and playful for day with metallic espadrilles like these shiny ones from Saint Laurent. A classic quilted bag, like a Chanel 2.55 re-issue adds a touch of luxury with a vintage vibe, while a floriental fragrance like Gucci’s Bamboo, a velvet matte lip and a nude mani will tick all the beauty trend boxes without you looking too “done.”


After that explosive splash of colour from this jumpsuit and rather fun looking bag, you’re gonna need to calm it all down with a pair of Ugg wedges and a black biker from Saint Laurent. This too, will offset the eccentricity of such a bright ensemble, toning it down slightly, but not too much.

Jacket: Saint Laurent 

Bag: Salvatore Ferragamo

Hot pink Chloe sandals and Chloe’s signature Drew crossbody bag in a similar pink hue will make this season’s pastel power pop!

US brand Maui Moisture is the latest feel-good, sulphate free, paraben free haircare line to use 100% aloe juice as the first ingredient in their products. Maui are Eco-friendly and suitable for vegans, too. With a shampoo, conditioner, hair mask and oil mist sprays that cater to every hair need, the products also boast a delicious tropical smell you won’t be able to resist.  The good news is, you don’t have to go all the way to Maui to get your hands on some much needed hydration for your locks, Maui Moisture has just landed in larger Boots stores.  The Heal and Hydrate shampoo and conditioner, which comes in beautiful popping pink bottles, is the perfect pick me up for your mane if you blow dry and straighten regularly.  

NYX have rolled out the Cosmic Metals Eyeshadow Palette, which consists of six versatile, metallic neutrals in shades of gold, copper, and dark plum.  Each of these shadows loads eyelids with crisp, metallic colour with an incredible colour payoff.  Metallic eyes and lips are a big beauty trend right now, and it’s easy to see the shades in this palette have been inspired by the much loved Cosmic Metals lip creams. 



Another make-up look that has really had a boom recently has been highlighting and strobing.  There are some amazing illuminators on the market that will help you achieve the glow of the unicorns!  NYX, always up to date with the latest beauty trends, have jumped on the bandwagon with their Duo Chromatic Illuminator powders.  Available in five light-catching shades, these highlighters are formulated with duochromatic pearls that will create a luminous glow that looks different from every angle.  


Swept across the highest points of the face, like cheekbones, bridge of your nose and Cupid’s bow, NYX Duo Chromatic Illuminators will guarantee you an ethereal, lit from within glow in no time.


Still on the quest for the perfect unicorn inspired make-up brushes?  Look no further than I Heart Make-up.  They’ve just bought out a limited edition 5 brush set, complete with Insta-worthy multicolour hairs and pearly horn shaped handles that pack plenty of pearl duochrome.  These are currently £20 in Boots, and on the TAM Beauty website for £14.99 (www.tambeauty.com).


With Summer well in full swing, it’s time to switch winter darks and spring pastel nail shades for some of the boldest, most vivid nail colours around.  The summer brights from Swiss brand Mavala will ensure your manis and pedis are on point with some juicy hues for July.  Inspired by popular holiday resorts, Cyclades Blue, Smily Orange, Blue Curaçao and Aruba will compliment your vacation wardrobe, and your destination, in the most amazing way.

Ever since the internet went crazy for the phenomenal Prism Highlighter, handmade by Etsy seller BitterLaceBeauty, any make-up company worth their salt has launched their own version of the rainbow highlighter. Whether they boast 5 or 6 colours, pastel or vivid, their mythical spectrum appeal makes them extremely pleasing on the eye. If the thought of sweeping a rainbow across your cheekbones is making you vision ending up with a clown face, don’t be fooled by the bold appearance of your very own compact rainbow; when applied with a powder or fan brush, the colours have an unexpected way of merging to create a light, iridescent glow. You will look refreshed and lit from within, you won’t look like you’re going to a rave!

Make-up Revolution’s Rainbow Highlighter boasts 5 pastel shimmer shades in a generously sized, iridescent compact, and it’s under a fiver!
