As you know we are currently relaunching our website.... and for our beauty tips page we want your questions!

If you want advice on how to get a certain look, what products suit your skin tone or any general make up advice, please email with your query ASAP!!!


Theres something about.....Green Eyeshadow

Green eyeshadow normally gets a bad rep. when we think of green it conjures up images of fancy dress, crazy people but also uber cool fashion shoots where extreme make up is celebrated.

However, now more than ever is the best time to experiment. Banish those negative thoughts about green eyeshadow and embrace the new!

If youre feeling daring try Eye Shades in Forest. This gorgeous green shade is perfect for creating a fashion forward look but remember keep lips nude and NO blusher!! £3.49

If the thought of wearing bright green sends panic signals then opt for Eyeshadow Single in Mossy. This muted green shade will ease you into wearing green and is the prefect neutral daytime shade! £3.49
