Summer isn’t over just yet!

If you haven’t given up on summer just yet here’s some inspiration to keep you going!

Nature designs such as birds are everywhere still, despite the A/W looks ruling the stores. Try this day bag and incorporate it into your usual weekend look.

Bright bold and eye-catching, these bangles make statement costume jewellery fun!

Wedges are my altogether favourite style of shoes, not just because I can walk in them whatever height, but because they look much more sleek and stylish than your average stiletto and go with anything if you get the colour right! This white pair are perfect for a staple summer wardrobe.

Do bright happy sandals make for a happy happy person? I think so! Keep your outfit plain and inject some colour from the floor and make what we have left of summer colourful!

Nails. Skin. Face

 

Your new discount make up and cosmetics store.

A message from Katy…

Makeup has been my passion for years, both buying and wearing it! For me nothing beats the excitement of finding my latest must have item or learning a new technique, and I’m constantly on the look out for inspiring products and lines!

Seeing a niche in the market for affordable, quality makeup and cosmetics I decided to set up Katy’s Cosmetics. Channelling my enthusiasm and passion for all things makeup, I’m committed to sourcing products that are both of good quality and easy on the purse.  

Lots of my products can be bought in packs, which are perfect for those daily saviours we have in our makeup bag that we never want to be without. I figured that we all have beauty buys that we constantly repurchase, and buying a few at a time means you get to save a lot of money.

Hopefully you will find everything you are looking for on the site, new stock is added all the time so make sure you follow us on Twitter to keep up with our latest lines and offers!

Happy Shopping!

This season neons are taking over! Move over last years neon brights on our clothes, this year try neons on your nails!

Use these festival party brights from Katy’s Cosmetics, the online beauty store, in yellows greens and pinks to stay on trend whenever you end up this summer

My best picks of nail varnish for summer style…

I tried and tested this W7 nail varnish and found it takes up to a week to even chip and is so glossy it makes your nails look ultra healthy.

Use your nails to your high style advantage. Yes you could use the ‘one coat’ for a bold statement look, but why not try these 3 new ideas out and nail it!

The Dip Dye Effect  – It’s a big trend again this season so why stop at your denim cut offs? Use the brights to slather your nails in one full colour adding another coat at the ends for the special effect.

The coloured Moon Manicure – A manicure – but with colours! Try the huge section on Katy’s website including manicure pens and nail art for this look, pair with a very steady hand!

The Cracked Nails – You can get this effect with cheap nasty polish, however Katy does that for you in just one bottle and one stroke! Named the Crackle Polish it will create a worn in look that celebs are loving too.

PS: Don’t forget the self tanner and make sure your sun safe this summer.

St Moriz instant self tanning lotion, £3.60

Weekend Outfit Idea

Pair a bland uninspiring top with a bold colour block skirt so they don’t compete for attention.

FALSE!

It’s not the most obvious of choice to team a bright orange skirt with a bold orange top but it works so well!! This weekend as temperatures are set to increase, up your boldness and combine two shades of the same colour together. Split them up with belts, jewellery or bags in the same shade or in contrasting shades if you dare! If not, add subtle hints of another colour.

I love: This thin pleated day skirt is so on trend and so slimming.

Pair it with: A cropped cardigan and a skinny belt as shown above.

Little Miss Mix&Match

Not for just the daring, the mix and match trend is slowing being worn not just by Carrie Bradshaw.

Wear that ‘too bright skirt’ at last but make it look like you’ve groomed your style rather than put on the only things that are clean, by making them work together in a sexy, expensive looking way.

Team any colour from this African coloured skirt to your top half, this way the colour is introduced into other areas without it standing out too much. Use your coloured tops again with other skirts with the same colours in … that’s mix and matching! Lastly add a tan leather bag and belt to split up the colour block.
