I'm Nuts for Coconuts
If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (THELISAELDRIDGE) you'll know that I was shooting in Barcelona last week where the weather was hot, hot, hot! I noticed that a few of the skincare essentials I packed to keep my skin happy and hydrated were coconut themed - coconut is such a great sunshine scent and, as most of us know, is packed with skin and health benefits, too. Coconut oil is rich in minerals, nutrients, antioxidants and vitamin E and it's a beauty ingredient that's gone mainstream with a plethora of coconut infused skincare, haircare and makeup on every shelf from department store to drugstore. Here are a few from my personal stash...
The Skinny on Eyeshadow Sticks
One of the oldest and most popular forms of cosmetic throughout history has been the makeup stick. Max Factor was such a huge fan of classic theatrical greasepaint sticks that he used them as inspiration for his first commercially available foundation, 'Pan Stick', in 1947, which women all over the world adored for its ease of application and portability. I’ve seen an huge influx of new stick makeup for every area of the face recently and particularly eyeshadow sticks. These are great if you like quick and easy shadow application - the formulas tend to be creamy and blendable so you can scribble onto lids, blend with fingers and go. Many also have great long-lasting, crease-proof and often waterproof formulas, so the maintenance is low.
Makeup & Hair - Getting ready with Jen Atkin

Skincare Comeback - Would You Wash Your Face With Soap?
While there's something quite romantic and nostalgic about a beautifully wrapped bar of hand soap (think Fresh and Diptyque), recently at my studio I’ve seen an influx of new soaps bars that are designed for cleansing - and treating - your face. I’m sure I’m not the only one who thinks soap and imagines tight, stripped, filmy-feeling skin, but these new-gen facial soaps are designed for gentle, non-abrasive cleansing, and claim to be the perfect cleansing partner for lots of different skin types. They’re also great for travel as they’re easily transportable (you could even cut off a slice and leave the rest at home) and, as they’re water-free, don’t need to contain any preservatives.
