Showcasing the up and coming make up trends for Spring/ Summer 2014

Here at The Diamond Store we love to know what’s on trend in fashion and beauty as well as the jewellery world, so we can advise and give you the full package! Make up is an extremely important part of a woman’s look. It can define so many different things about a woman, her mood and her sense of style. Experimenting with make up is something every girl has done since they drew across they’re faces with their mum’s bright red lippy when they were small! And we know so many of us still love to do this, quirky and unique or subtle and shy, there are always looks to experiment with that are perfect for you.

For those of you who prefer a more understated look with your make up and your fashion sense ,these ethereal, subtle looks are just right. If you have a paler complexion a softer lip is better for you.  Berry tones are the best way to go if you are wearing minimal make up and want to add a little colour. For the eyes, white eye shadow is ideal to help make your eyes appear wider and by adding a touch of liquid illuminator, your eyes will be the epitome of ethereal beauty.

If you like understated make up you’ll love understated jewellery too! At The Diamond Store we have such a wide range of jewellery that caters to everyone’s tastes.  From our gorgeous diamond stud earrings to our diamond claw set link bracelets with various gemstones, diamonds can certainly be gorgeous and understated all at the same time!

Another trend to look out for in Spring/ Summer is bold colours. Bright blues and greens for your eyes are set to make a statement in Spring and it looks stunning. The perfect colours to make your eyes pop! Eye shadow is the best piece of make up to experiment with if you want to make a statement.

It’s all about tartan!

It’s all about tartan!

One of the biggest fashion trends this winter has been tartan. We have been loving tartan in every way possible; tartan leggings, tartan tops, tartan dresses, tartan skirts, literally EVERYTHING tartan. It’s been all over the runways with the biggest designers putting their own personal twist on the world’s favourite pattern. Tartan is bold and not for the faint hearted. Men and women everywhere have embraced this gorgeous pattern this season and the plus side, you think red isn’t your colour? No problem. Tartans in greens, blues and yellows have been filling our shops, there’s a hue perfect for everyone.

Tartan leggings are gorgeous and perfect to add that something different to your day-to-day attire. Whether you pair them with a baggy jumper and black boots or a tank top and a leather jacket, your day time look will be to die for! You can turn your look into anything you want with tartan. These leggings from Missguided.com are perfect, they fit your shape and use gorgeous colours in them.

Tartan can be used for so many different looks. If you prefer a more androgynous look, just like how they wore tartan in the punk rock years, tartan is the way to go. If you wear tartan leggings or a tartan top, a leather jacket, chunky black boots and layer up your jewellery you will look perfect. Take Rita Ora for example, she has gone all out with her androgynous tartan look with a tartan suit and bow tie. She looks gorgeous!

You can always take the pretty avenue with tartan. This season has seen some stunning tartan dresses. We’ve seen them in every style, shift dresses, skater dresses and bodycon dresses. There is a great style for everyone to feel comfortable in.

Tartan, being a very bold statement to make, obviously needs some stunning jewellery to go with it. Both silver and gold looks amazing but gold blends with tartan perfectly, especially if you’re going for a more vintage look with your tartan pieces.

As well as adorning an outfit with jewels, we at The Diamond Store LOVE a great makeup and hairstyle combination to offset your dress and jewels. The party season has arrived and we have done our best to pluck out our favourite looks to see you through to the New Year.

Sleek and Stylish

Jourdunn Dunn

The sleek pony tail has got to be on of the easiest styles to re-create at home. It offers a sophisticated, sultry and ultra preened look. Pull hair back to the crown of the head using a paddle brush and secure with a hair band. Pull a single strand from the pony tail and wrap it around the hair band to disguise it. Secure this with a bobby pin. Emerald green is the ultimate party season colour so sweep on a dark Emerald green with a hint of sparkle over the lash line or in high feline flicks like Jourdan Dunn.

Choppy Waves

hairstyle 2

A boho-esque, choppy hairstyle is perfect to create a more playful look. This can be achieved by setting the hair in rollers and brushing out once set with a fine toothed comb. If you already have a natural wave, scrunch damp hair in your hands and finish with a touch of serum for added gloss. Team this look with purple shadow. Go for a deep purple on the lash line with a softer purple working up the eye lid. Add black feline flicks for some Alexa Chung fun.

Super Straight

hairstyle 4

The classic straight blow dry adds a grown up, sultry spin to an outfit. Get the best out of this look by teaming with a smoky eye like Mila Kunis. Line eyes with a black liner and smudge in charcoals, greys and dark browns to achieve a mysterious look. Finish with lashing of mascara.

Princess Bun

hairstyle 8

Doesnt Rosie Huntington Whiteley look amazing? We love her preened bun and think it would be another perfect style for the Christmas period. Pull hair up into a pony tail and secure it at the crown. Wrap hair around the hair tie and secure with hair grips. For extra oomph and volume, invest in a hair doughnut. To get the best out of the look, we would also stick to neutral make up as the hair should do all the talking. Sweep a light brown over the lid, work in a little gold and brush just under the eyebrow with a highlighter. Also add plenty of shimmer!
