Polyvore: Monochrome & Gold

Polyvore really is my favourite site for playing stylist whilst creating fashion wish lists at the same time. It’s so addictive, I’m hooked! I’ve just spent a fun half hour creating the following Monochrome & Gold set…

I love the clean, crisp, understated look of monochrome. Throw in some staple statement gold jewellery and this is a dream outfit!

S/S13’s Hottest Beauty Trends

S/S13’s top beauty trends are inspirational, innovative, and sure to keep the beauty obsessed among us on our toes. If it’s high time your cosmetics case had a much needed overhaul, check out the hottest beauty trends of the season below…

Back to basics

An overall flawless finish exuding healthy radiance and natural beauty is top of the beauty trend list this summer. Take inspiration from the Rag & Bone S/S13 runway by pairing minimal, flawless make-up with well groomed brows and slicked back tresses. The overall aim here is to create a laid-back, effortless look.

Neon matte takeover

Hands off the red lipstick! It’s time to embrace your youthful, fun side with some lollipop coloured lips. Take a fresh step into summer with this seasonal trend and steal a slice of Parisian catwalk style as you go; Switch between tropical coral, neon pink, and fearless fuchsia.

Seriously smokey eyes

Smouldering smokey eyes are this season’s evening beauty staple. Mix up the classic smokey eye look by playing with colour for a trend-led take on a beauty classic. Inject some innovation into your look by following in the footsteps of Jeremy Scott’s runway models with a dash of cool cobalt blue. Blend cobalt with both charcoal and dazzling bronze for a seriously seamless, sexy look.

Big & bold brows

Bold brows are still going strong this season, with little sign of slowing down. Francois Nars channeled retro sixties beauty on the Marc Jacobs runway this season with strong, bold brows against pale skin and nude lips. If you aren’t blessed with naturally bold brows, opt for an eyebrow pencil or eyeshadow to add additional depth and volume as desired.

Electric blue liner

Moschino’s Cheap & Chic S/S13 shows established the summer trend status of electric blue eyeliner. Paired with dishevelled crimped hair and a matte nude lip, this easy addition to your make-up routine adds a splash of show-stopping colour, perfect for hot summer days and even hotter party nights.
