The best nail colors to get this summer
During summer, the sun shines very brightly in the sky. So, the best nail colors for summer, in my outlook, are those which invoke that particular idea of summer on nails well; bright (or bold) colors do that very nicely.
Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Nail Polish at Harrods
The nail polish has a fruity scent and when applied over your nails, the color will be rich and shiny; get the bright orangish-red shade called ‘East Poppy’.
Butter London Mini Glazen Nail Lacquer at Nordstrom
The ‘Firecracker’ shade of red from Butter London’s limited edition collection is perfect to wear it to an afternoon wedding pair paired with a light-colored outfit.
Deborah Lippmann Glitter Nail Colour at Harrods
The ‘Tropical Coral’ shade of pink by Dolce & Gabbana is bright and bold color; pair it with a dark-colored midi dress (choose one that has really thin straps) to look ballsy and wear to an afternoon baby shower party.
NARS Iconic Color Nail Polish at Nordstrom
The ‘Delos’ shade from the range by Nars is a beautiful and rich brown color; pair it with an outfit comprising a plain white shirt and a pair of jeans, and wear to a lunch to show off your love for looking bold.
A very large bouffant was showcased at the Valentino Fall 2018 Couture show
At the Valentino Fall 2018 Couture show, a very ravishing hairstyle was exhibited on the heads of seven models on the runway: it was the bouffant – a hairstyle that was popular in the sixties. The bouffant was not your atypical bouffant, however, because it was unusually large – so large, that if you were to have that hairstyle, it would be best to tone down the clothes which would be worn with it to not look overdone. The hairstyle is not a practical piece, as well: it took hairstylist Guido Palau an incredibly long time to put together the look – a person would have to spend days just preparing to premier that hairstyle at a party. But what I loved about the hairstyle was its uniqueness – if you have long hair on your head, then it’s a good idea to try out yourself on a slightly smaller and more practical scale.
A new range of cheaply priced foundation will take away all your worries over finding the perfect shade
American beauty brand ColourPop recently announced a new range of foundation for a very surprisingly cheap price: the range will carry forty-two varieties and is going to hit stores tomorrow. There are two types of foundation to look forward to: liquid-form and powder.
The new range has been created because of customer requests for a foundation and the color range is so diverse that one particular group, such as deep dark, has several options. Both the liquid-edition and the powder boast of being lightweight to wear, which makes the foundation just ideal to have around for the summer.
The powder, additionally, is said to blend in finely when you apply it to your skin, whilst the liquid foundation is supposed to provide flawless coverage in spite of the lightness of the formula. What this could only mean is there are two further reasons to grab some of those products up fast to keep in your beauty box.

The perfect seasonal shades to get pretty with
Which lipstick colors are ideal for spring? Spring is associated with freshness and blooming gardens so the variety of colors exhibited by flowers is a good idea. Choose a type of red, enough of pink, the odd violet and a standout shade like orange.
Dior Lip Tattoo Colour Juice at Harrods
Beautifully vibrant, the orange shade from the Dior range is ideal to perk up any outfit during the day (or night); I liked that it supplies the effect of a tattoo color which is temporary but enduring.
Dior Dior Addict Lacquer Plump at Harrods
Color your lips with a type of color (the perfect shade is J’Adior) that is comfortable to wear and reliable on long nights; the color also provides added shine and a plumping effect.
Bobbi Brown Crushed Lip Color at Harrods
Matte lipsticks are the latest rage and the Molly Wow shade from the range boasts pigments, vitamin C and E, and beeswax, plus is refreshingly a plucky shade of pink.
Tom Ford Lip Lacquer Liquid at Harrods
A lipstick that feels comfortably heavy on your lips and moisturizes too, the Erotic Patent color is an indomitable shade of pink that seems like the most typical spring shade.
Givenchy Le Rouge Couture Edition Lipstick at Harrods
A purple lipstick presented in a case that features a Givenchy print of flowers seemingly in a socially decaying environment; wear it when you are bored of the classics and want to look different.

Gently exfoliating with a loofah twice a week, especially if you have oily skin, can do wonders
Exfoliation is the removal of dead skin cells, which can give your skin a healthy and natural glow. When you are in your thirties, making exfoliation a part of your regular skincare routine is wise because from this age onwards, the skin no longer repairs itself in as speedy a manner as when you were younger. This can give rise to having a lifeless complexion, which personally, would be such a disappointing experience to have, as a woman who lives to look good.
The best time to exfoliate is during a shower (with warm water) as the airborne dirt is washed off from your body, making exfoliation a simpler task, because none of the dirt can sink into your skin as you gently rub your body with a loofah. Exfoliating can also aid with the removal of dryness from areas in your skin that really easily get dry, such as your elbows.
Exfoliation, when done naturally with a scrub or using your favorite store-bought exfoliating scrub (such as Clinique Exfoliating Scrub – its ingredients comprise salicylic acid, which is needed to effectively exfoliate for oily skins) can be done at best two times a week. It’s also a good idea to moisturize your skin right after you have exfoliated with a sponge, to keep your skin feeling soft.
The best seasonal oils
Spring is associated with cool weathers but the thought of sunny days always looming in the corner is never out of mind. It never hurts to have oils around for that very reason, and this season the focus is on both taking care of your skin and using oil as a means to comfort yourself whilst having busy times.
Guerlain Chinese New Year Abeille Royal Oil
The oil contains a formula which is a mix of the good effects of a serum and also provides the freshness that is normally associated with a lotion, in order to help keep the skin glowing and feeling smooth.
Little Barn Apothecary Honeysuckle + Grapefruit Body Oil
The ideal oil for daily use, the body oil from Little Barn Apothecary moisturizes and glistens your skin; its ingredients consists of organic skin perfecting oils and is also comforting for the non-greasy nature the body oil possess.
Ulta Almond Body Oil
A standard body oil to help keep your skin supple and reserve its moisture, with wide ranging nut-based ingredients, such as almond, along with apricot oil, which also comforts stressed-out skin.
Cowshed Knackered Cow Relaxing Bath & Body Oil
This product from Cowshed contains lavender and eucalyptus, and it helps you to feel uplifted, calm, relaxed, and also helps to unwind, on the busiest of days.
