With this drab weather, we all need a pick me up and what better than finding the perfect fake tan so we can all at least pretend we have been enjoying warmer climes. So we tried out four fake tans at a range of prices to see which is the best of the bunch to give you that bronzed look!

One of our favourite bloggers has done it again and come up with an easy step by step guide to getting the hottest shoe trend this season, the metallic cap-toe shoe.
Over to Rosie: Since Louis Vuitton send them down his Spring/Sumer catwalk earlier this year, cap-toe shoes have been the top of every fashionista’s summer shoe list. The look is simple but effective, and it’s super-easy to create yourself as a fab way to give new life to some of those old flats hidden away at the back of your wardrobe!
This would work with any style of shoe – ballet pumps, pointed toes, heels or flats but I decided to go for a pair of slipper style shoes in a pastel shade, in true Louis Vuitton style
I chose Boohoo’s pistachio coloured slippers and went for a silver metallic cap toe, although this would just as easily work with a colour pop, neon or gold metallic toe. The rest was easy.
There are different ways to create a DIY cap toe, but I went for the quickest and easiest: using fabric spray paint. The only tricky part is making sure you cover your shoes in masking tape to create the area that will get sprayed. Here’s some simple instructions to create the look:
So Tuesday night was the night where celebs came together for a star studded evening to celebrate the Inside Soap Awards 2012 nominations after yet another year of great soap operas!
Catherine Tyldesley wowed the crowds in her red hot body con dress teamed with some simple black heels while Kym Marsh, she went for a classic look with a boohoo favourite, the black skater dress with a statement red bag. But our favourite look of the evening has to be Michelle Keegan with her edgier look with super shiny high-waisted leggings teamed with a simple white shirt and biker jacket.
The boys didn’t disppoint in the style stakes either. Emmerdale star Rik Makarem looked dapper in a grey suit while Hollyoaks actor Kieron Richardson rocked a cool aztec print shirt! All in all a great evening was had by all and we can’t wait to see what the stars will wear to
We are so excited to announce that we are the official sponsors of Inside Soap Awards 2012! We all love a good soap and this year hasn’t disappointed in the soap drama stakes. From Pat Butcher’s death to murderers in Hollyoaks, soap stars came up trumps with turbulent storylines this year.

Dazzle in the shade of summer! Nothing says high summer like gleaming bright whites. Go head to toe or swap your usual black basics for fuss-free, clean white basics as we head into the summer months, white has never been hotter. Whether you go for a sporty look mixing whites with greys or go for a studded white look, bright whites is the statement colour this season.
It may be a time-consuming activity but if you want to get silky soft skin, moisturizing is a necessary step to take. Perfect for maintaining your holiday skin, we wanted to find the best body butter out there to keep our skin feeling soft and supple all summer long!
At £6.49, Good Things Ultra Rich Body Butter smelt amazing and left skin feeling really soft during the course of the day. Perfect for normal to dry skin, this moisturiser absorbed really quickly without leaving any oily residue. No fuss, great smell and great value for money, we loved this body butter!
Ooh La Spa Moist at £1.99 is very affordable and excellent value for money. It is perfect for everyday use to keep your skin soft and smooth and also has a beautiful perfume which leaves your skin smelling fresh and fragrant. However if you have very dry skin and require something more intense, then this isn’t the moisturiser for you. It is perfect for those who have a regular moisturising regime and can’t afford the expensive labels.
At £12.99,Burt’s Bees Body Buttercame in at the most expensive of the four. It had a lovely fragrance without being too overpowering like some of the other butters. It looked like it had a thinner texture expected from a body butter but it absorbs well into the skin without being greasy. All in all it left skin feeling sillky smooth however the price tag is a bit of turn off being about half the size of the other body butters.
Dirty Works Coconut Caress Body Butter at £4.99 was our middle of the range body butter. It has a lovely fragrance if not a little overwhelming. It is a light moisturiser but keeps your skin soft all day. The butter seemed a little greasy on first appearance and left a bit of an overpowering smell but all in all, it is good value for money.
Over here at boohoo HQ, we are always searching out those quick fix beauty tips that will make you look as amazing as our beautiful model looked, behind the scenes at our latest shoot. So we have put together our latest top five tips so you can keep up to date with the latest beauty trends this season…
NUMBER ONE: A bold lip
Don’t be afraid of a bright lip colour. Red is a great colour for both blondes and brunettes - Fair skin tones should opt for a lippy with blue toned crimson, medium to olive ladies can indulge in a red with orange undertones, and dark skinned girls get all the luck, being able to take their pick from light coral colours right through to berry shades.
NUMBER TWO: The quick nail dryer
Ever get annyoed waiting for your nails to dry? Or even worse, think that they have dried and smudge or all your hard work? After a good nail art session, the worst thing you can do is scuff your nail masterpieces. To hurry up the drying process, dip your nails into cold water and they will dry in no time!
NUMBER THREE: Tidy up that eyeliner
Liquid eyeliner can be tricky to apply. If like us, you love doing a defined eye but don’t like the mess, don’t worry once you have applied your liner, dip your cotton wool bud into some water and run along your lash line to smarten it up.
NUMBER FOUR: Fix that hair
You have probably heard of mixing salt and water to spray on your hair to get the perfect tousled look. But sugar water is the best natural hairspray. Mix a few teaspoons of sugar with a small cup of water, put into a spray bottle and style away. Whatever your hair-do is sure to do what it’s told with this top tip.
NUMBER FIVE: Lengthen those lashes
Destroyed your lashes with mascara? Fret not, apply almond oil to your lashes and they will grow back in no time.
Festival season is upon us and while we all love a good boogy when the sun is shining, when the heavens open, surviving in a tent with just your festival essentials is not always the easiest! So we have put our heads together and come up with our five top tips for surviving festivals this year.
RULE NUMBER ONE: Pack light!
If you are anything like us, ‘pack’ and ‘light’ are two words that are not to be used in the same sentence. However, after years of lugging huge backpacks around festivals, experience has taught to cut down to your absolute essentials when packing. Think about how you can work ten key items to make several looks. Our latest BoohooTV shows how to do just this, mixing and matching key items into different looks! Don’t forget, a maxi dresses are not festival-friendly - they might be perfect in the sun but when the mud kicks they are not so chic!
RULE NUMBER TWO: Waterproof everything
Wellies are an essential and don’t forget you will be walking a long way so pack multiple pairs of socks. Rain ponchos are a must and don’t forget you will need layers for cool evenings so pack a jumper. Once you have experienced a wash out at a festival, you will understand the importance of our next top tip: waterproof your underwear! That is, place your underwear in a waterproof bag and you will be laughing when you get a tent leak.
Guys, don’t get caught out in the rain this weekend, weather proof your outfit with loads of layering whether it’s a festival or a footie weekend that you have planned! From hoodies to chinos, from jumpers to outerwear, we’ve got all you need to look sharp and resist this drab weather! So don’t let the weather ruin your weekend, check out our latest menswear and see what you can find…
A girl can never have too many shoes and although we all love a good pair of sky scraper heels, sometimes you simply want to slip on a pair of comfy flats.

Harking back to the 1950s, this trend takes us to vintage America. Think hints of classic gingham, polka dots and hair bands finished with the perfect 50s touch - a pair of cat eye sunglasses. All we need now is an open top Cadillac to take us through the winding desert roads - Thelma & Louise style.
Quick, girls get holiday ready with our latest review on body scrubs!

Whether you have a summer party or a school prom, we have some top tips to help you be party-ready!
Prom Essentials Checklist:
Double-sided tape is a great trick for ensuring your dress stays put, even when you’re busting out your best moves on the dance floor.
Make sure the shoes complement the style of your dress or suit, and, women, that the height of the heel is appropriate for the length of your dress and your date’s height. Keep in mind what surfaces you may have to walk on that night, and any possible stairs. And, don’t forget, you will most likely want to dance, above all.
Once you buy your dress, shoes, and accessories (jewelry and purse), do a trial run on the entire look. Take a picture. Is this the finished look you were striving for?
Walk around in your shoes before the prom to break them in
Your prom shoes are totally on-trend and complement your dress (and your legs) beautifully, but let’s face it, blisters happen. have a few plasters to hand and sore feet will be a thing of the past, or at least take some of the pressure off your toes so you can make the most of the dance floor.
