Nail Polish... without the Odour!
I know some people who really love the smell of nail varnish - but personally I'm not the biggest fan! So when these Little Ondine polishes arrived at the #houseofeldridge with odour-free claims I was intrigued - I couldn't quite believe they would be 100% resin scent free.

C For Clarity - Why Vitamin C is Your Skin's Best Friend
As someone with a history of pigmentation and skin prone to uneven texture, I’m regularly on the lookout for products with brightening benefits that I can incorporate into my regime. There are lots of skincare ingredients that are thought to be effective skin brighteners - one of the best known, well-researched, and arguably most effective non-prescription actives is Vitamin C. As well as being the immunity booster you reach for when you need to kick a cold, applied topically, it’s brilliantly brightening with a lightening effect on all kinds of pigmentation (think sun spots to post-acne red marks). It’s also fantastic for dull, congested complexions as it can reduce inflammation and increase cell turnover to slough off dead skin cells, helping to bring back a healthy luminosity.
#FlawlessFriday Sophia Loren's Brilliant Beauty Anecdotes
When I was researching the enduringly beautiful and phenomenally talented Sophia Loren for my latest film, 'Sophia Loren Inspired Makeup Look', I dug out her book Women & Beauty from the #HouseofEldridge library. Sophia wrote this in 1984 as a collection of all the beauty, health and fashion tips she'd picked up throughout her career (I heard someone describe it as an auto-beauty-ography which I love!). Even though I've had this book for a while, and have read it cover to cover numerous times, whenever I flick through it never fails to make me smile - Sophia has some absolutely brilliant beauty anecdotes and I thought I'd share some with you for today's #FlawlessFriday. Hopefully they'll make you smile too!

Foundations for Weddings - and All Your Other 'Red Carpet' Moments
I'm always asked about the best foundations for weddings - the ones that last, even out tone, smooth imperfections and don't have any flashback (the ghostly-faced look you can get in photographs). If you already use an incredible foundation then go ahead and stick to what you know (as long as it ticks the boxes above). If you want to try something new, take a look at a few of my favourite long-wearing, beautifying foundations for different skin types and situations below - they're equally great if you're a wedding guest or have a party or special event to attend where you're going to be photographed. They've all been seriously tried and tested (in some cases over years of use) to make sure they reach the Eldridge standard!
