Get Summer ready with Barry M’s latest TV Advert and make-up ambassador Adam Burrell. The eyes and lips are the focal point to this gorgeous look, so make sure your base is kept minimal to help pull this off.

Electric eyes are so hot for SS14 so begin with creating a blue eye flick using Gel Waterproof Eyeliner in Blue. Top Tip from Adam “I always find it best to do this when your eyes are open so you can see exactly how it’s going to look”.

Take your time with this, as the saying goes; “Never ask a girl with winged eyeliner why she is late” and this most definitely applies here. When you are happy with the shape of your flick then follow the line across your eyelid and bottom line before layering with Lash Vegas.


It is Summer after all, so add a bit of warmth to your skin with natural dazzle bronzer on the whole face, not forgetting to blend with your neck; nobody wants an obvious make-up line! On the cheeks, add a cheeky flush using Blusher in peaches & cream, which is subtle but effective.

Orange and blue clash beautifully together, so to finish off the look with that striking orange lip using Loud Mouth in Screamer. It works with the same texture as a lip gloss but with the extreme colour you would expect from a lipstick. Sorted!

Make-Up Masterclass: Spring Beauty

We’re heading into the last days of Spring beauty, so make the most of the fresh faced look before we all overload on bronzer when we hit the beach! In her latest make-up masterclass, beauty correspondent, Polina Berdos shows us how to get this bloomin’ lovely Spring look. 

“This time let’s take a look at getting inspiration from Spring hues. Everything from soft peach, lilac to rose tones are popular colors for Spring fashion and make-up. Let’s be inspired by the work of make-up artists as they beautifully pair floral prints with fresh and radiant make-up looks.

This Spring, there is a fresh take on the most popular colours, with the runway looks inspired by shades and elements only found in nature. Models faces are translucent and flawless with luminous skin and subtle, sophisticated washes of colour on the eyes and lips.

Muted, monochromatic hues are balanced harmoniously with rich high sheen swirls of deep pigments and textures to create a stunning, new, natural modern beauty.

This look is inspired by the peony and tulip with soft shades like light pink and beige. This Spring, there is no better way to showcase love, joy and passion for life than to make your own blooming make-up look.

Infused with romance, this natural and feminine look will help you to capture the wondrous feeling of being enlivened by love!”

Vacation is one of the most important things that you can do for yourself to unwind and regroup There is nothing better than escaping to a tropical get-away, while spending hours on the beach drinking cocktails or reading the perfect book. Travel beauty essentials should be stress free and fun, but keep you lookin’ smoking hot all the day long.


Here are my top spring break beauty picks from Shopcade for how to get that sun-kissed bronze summer glow without any streaky orange self-tanning meltdowns:


  1. St . Tropez Self Tanning Mousse: LADIES, I don’t care how pale you are, this product is the most amazing if not best self tanning mousse that is natural on the fairest of skin tones. With a soft golden bronze undertone, you can see where you are applying it on the skin, which makes accidents and streaks less likely. A great alternative to using before your beach bound vacay to get that perfect golden glow,  without those harmful tanning bed UV rays.
  2. NARS Multiple Stick in “Palm Beach”: One of the easiest products to use, you can apply as eyeshadow, lip color,  cream blush or alternate as a bronzer. The color is the most beautiful bronze tone and easy to apply and blend. Products that have multiple uses are the best kinds to pack for traveling, as they take up less space in your carry on and leave room for little drama.
  3. Urban Decay Naked 3 Eyeshadow Palette: With 12 options of gorgeous eyeshadow colors from rose gold to chocolate brown, this is the PERFECT thing to bring on vacation!
