We are seeing lots of makeup collections being released for spring and summer 2013, from Chanel to Nars. So we thought we would show you a few of what we think are the best and most good looking releases - yes, we all like to get out our new, limited edition beautiful makeup out on the train for everyone to nosey at!

CHANEL L'Ete Papillon. This collection has been inspired by the 'dazzling colours of butterflies' and we think the colours are perfect for summer. Now this isn't everything in the collection, there are also eyeshadow sticks, eye liners and coloured mascaras (even a daring yellow shade). 


CLARINS Splendours. Seven items make-up this collection, a bronzer, a colour quartet and eye liner palette, shimmer body oil, a crystal lip balm and gel, waterproof mascara and an instant light brush on perfector. The palettes are beautiful, think Aztec and Egyptian prints in gorgeous red and orange. The products themselves are made up of gold and bronze colours perfect for creating a sun kissed, just been on holiday look. 


NARS Summer Shock. This collection is the most bright and vibrant collection for those that aren't afraid of bright yellow eyelids and orange nails - together! A particular favourite for us is the single shimmer eyeshadow in Euphrate which is described as 'frosted mint steel'.


DIOR Bird of Paradise. Another gorgeous collection containing a blush/bronzer duo in amazing silver luxe packaging, nail polishes, eyeshow palettes, and eye colour glosses - sounds strange a gloss for the eyes but they finish to a powdery form. If we had to choose a favourite from this collection, it would be the blue and green nail polishes. 

So that's our round up of our favourite summer collections. Hope you enjoyed! Remember to keep checking back for new blog posts.

We promised you a style round-up of Coachella Weekend number two and hear it is! Some looks that we are loving and would definitely rock at any festival this summer (weather permitting of course - remember we are in the UK and rarely see the sun these days!). 

Model style! Chanel Iman showing us a glam festival outfit wearing Alexandra Wang heels and a white cut out crop tee.



Our favourite look! Black high waisted shorts and snake print with a bright red lip. Nothing more to say.



A vintage girly look here, with the peach lace and black lace embroidery this proves that a pretty look rather than boho, can be worn at a festival. (The coconut water accessory also matches the whole look!)


....and festival nails <3


So that was Coachella style for the second week. If any of you guys are heading to any festivals this summer, we would love to see what you will be wearing.

Every year we wait to see what everyone will be wearing at Coachella - Valley Music and Arts annual festival. The ultimate festival for music and also for style. Thousands turn out every year including the rich and famous and we couldn't wait to see what they were wearing! Now that weekend one is over, we thought we would share with you some of the looks we're loving.


We love that you can still rock a structured jacket even at a festival


You can't go wrong with a loose fitting pair of shorts and a lace top and we love the pop of the amazing shade of orange against the black lace



Showing us that you don't always need to bare all and trousers can still look amazing, especially a printed pair like these


Victoria's Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio not wearing the traditional blue jean shorts, instead opting for an on-trend high waisted neon pink pair and accessorising with stacks of neon bracelets. 



We know this isn't a complete outfit, but how could we not show these amazing boots, perfect for any festival


So that was our pick (of some!) of our favourite looks from Coachella weekend one. Next week we will be sharing our favourite looks from weekend two.
