We love this nail trend! Wearing different nail polish colours together is fun way to express your creativity. The best thing about this look is how versatile it is. You can create either subtle variation or eye-popping contrast!
Wearing different shades of one colour — whether it’s blue (see photo from fabfatale.com), pink, or purple — can work well to create a sophisticated look.
Try wearing a selection of pastels together to create a sweet candy-coloured look perfect for Easter! Combine these shades in our Fast Dry Nail Polish range: 1 (pink), 2 (light blue) 3 (coral), and 4 (pale green).
If your style is more understated, then try combining only two shades in a subtle way. Paint 8 of your fingers with your main colour, then use a different colour as accent on either the ring or pointer fingers. Some combinations that work well from Glossywear Nail Polish range: Shade 24 (pillar box red) with accent colour Shade 39 (black), Shade 11 (lavender) with accent colour Shade 13 (aubergine), Shade 16 (violet) with accent colour Shade 9 (silver). Experiment with your favourite colours and find your own combinations!

EMMA STONE (soon to be Spider-Man’s new girlfriend in the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man) defied convention with her fresh pink-and-pretty makeup. We love this look because it takes a daytime look - rosy cheeks and pink lipgloss – and adds a dramatic evening eye. The combination of black liner on her waterline, white liner under her eyes, and silvery eyeshadow creates the arresting look.

GET THE LOOK: 2true Smooth Matte Foundation (for face and lips), Glamour Lashes, Incredilash Mascara, Twist n Line Eye Definer Shade 8, Eyeshadow Duo shade 3 (sliver/charcoal), Eyeshadow Duo shade 11 (golden/chocolate brown), All over Body Bronzer (facial contouring). Total cost: £11.97

Whether for school or work, everyone has fun with the old Christmas grab-bag tradition. If your group is mostly ladies, then makeup makes a great Secret Santa gift! Stick to the basics that everyone needs. The most commonly overworked product is mascara. Since it’s a liquid, it has a relatively short life span. So chances are your mascara will need replacing soon, or is already past its “best-by” date! Pick up our latest innovation in mascara, Incredilash, and your recipient will not be disappointed. Wrap it up with two other great basics: a lipstick in an everyday easy-to-wear shade like Glossywear Lipstick Shade 1 or Colour Drench Lipstick Shade 3, and our convenient Bronzing Brush – a fun and portable version of everyone’s favourite winter product.
PRICE FOR ALL THREE: £4.99

Those of you who use our Voluptulash Mascara know that we are serious about great mascara.

Check out these reviews by Jo at Beautylicious Love and Maria at the Miss Drifted Snow White blog, who dubbed it a “Holy Grail” product.
But rather than rest on our laurels, we’ve been working on a NEW mascara that uses the latest in beauty technology. Our goal was to create the LONGEST LASHES yet! So we introduce our new Incredilash Mascara – offered at the same £1.99 price as the rest of our range, but with an Eyelash Enhancing Complex you’d expect to find in those expensive department store products!
New Incredilash not only helps LENGTHENS your lashes, its special nutrient serum helps STRENGTHENS lashes at the root. It’s like a vitamin tablet for your lashes! Incredilash helps promotes growth, and helps prevent lashes falling out, to create your lushest lashes ever.

White eyeliner has always been found in the toolbox of pro makeup artists, but lately it’s gained more popularity. One reason for this is the signature 60s-style eye makeup of Adele, which uses heavy black “flicked” liner on top, and white liner on the bottom to create a BIG eye look! (Adele makeup tutorial here.)
We’ve just released our own white eyeliner: Shade 16 in our Easy Glide Kohl range. So now it’s really easy – and affordable! – to create professional looks. If you’re not sure how to use white eyeliner, check out this quick tutorial from American makeup blogger Selby Walker. She shows her favourite FOUR uses for white liner – they are all easy to do and very effective.
Another one of our favourite YouTubers is Leesha at xSparkage – she shows how white liner opens up your eyes. (Even when you haven’t had enough sleep!)
Get into Superdrug and pick up one of our new white liners for only £1.99 and try out some new professional makeup tricks!
Nail polish lovers will no doubt have noticed the wildly popular “crackle” look. It’s most commonly seen as a black crackle over a lighter shade. Here at 2true, we like to put our own twist on beauty trends, so we’ve created a crackle polish in two bright metallic shades. Introducing new Krazy Kracked Krackle Nail Polish in Silver and Gold.
These crackle polishes add a cool cracked metal effect that blings up all those dark shades we love! Gold and silver crackle adds glamour to black, dark reds and purples, and the very on-trend navy blue! We’ve introduced our own gorgeous navy blue creme in Fast Dry Polish Shade 10 which looks amazing with our Silver Krackle polish. How stylish are navy blue nails? Well, we couldn’t help but notice them on the fingers of fashion icon Mary Portas in Channel 4′s Mary Queen of Frocks.
With Christmas around the corner, these “cracking” metallics will be fabulous for the party season – but don’t wait, because at £1.99 each, these Limited Edition shades won’t be around for long!
With party season right around the corner, these glam and glittery polishes are the perfect new addition to your collection!
Four LIMITED EDITION shades available: Midnight Blue (shade 1), Vampish Red (shade 2), Mysterious Turquoise (shade 3) and Regal Purple (shade 4).

Blame the Kardashians. Or maybe Emma Watson. The bold eyebrow look is a key makeup trend this Fall/Winter season!
Bold, filled-in brows have been around for a while. Before Megan Fox and Amy Childs wore them, there was Madonna in the 80s, and Audrey Hepburn in the 50s!
Today’s bold brows can be easily customised to suit your style. For a natural look, just fill in your brow staying within the natural outline. For added drama, extend the line of your brow out slightly over the corner of your eye, and inward toward the bridge of your nose. Whether you use a natural or extended outline, always follow the arch of the eyebrow.
The easiest way to “bold” your brows is by using an eyebrow pencil and clear mascara. The 2true Eyebrow Pencil comes with an integrated brow brush. Apply the pencil with short strokes to achieve a natural look, carefully filling in your brows. Then grab 2true Instant Colour Mascara in Shade 1 (Clear) and brush through your brows. Use the eyebrow brush on the pencil cap to make any small adjustments, pressing the brow hair down slightly. When it dries, your brows will be set and ready for the day or night.
Give this look a try and have fun going BOLD this Fall!
