Sheet masks: easy at-home facials
A lot of beauty trends are born in Asia, from BB creams to cushion foundations and the graduated lip (watch my Korean ‘Beauty Trends’ Inspired Makeup Tutorial if you want to see me try this), and another Asian skincare obsession that’s quickly gaining popularity globally is the sheet mask. Even June, the #HouseofEldridge studio muse, loves them - here she is having a midday facial in the photo above ;)

My Japanese Lash Lowdown
I’m like a kid in a candy shop whenever I visit a drugstore, and the Japanese ones are out of this world - absolutely crammed with makeup, skincare and beauty gadgets, with discount signs, talking advertisements and music playing from every shelf… It’s chaos, but I love it! On my recent trip to Tokyo I did a mega haul (if you haven't already, watch my Japanese Makeup Look film to see some of the products I bought), including a lot of false eyelashes which I wanted to show you all.
Face Paint - The Story of Makeup - behind the cover
FacePaint - a book about the history of makeup, is something I've always wanted to write.
It's been a very long, intense and at times exhausting journey, so I was excited but also really nervous about unveiling the cover. Since then I've been overwhelmed by all the lovely posts and comments, so a BIG thank you to everyone who has taken the time to repost and share. As I said in my newsletter, what began as a hobby and a passion continued to grow as I connected with you all on my site - you helped me to realise that it’s not just me who loves learning about the history of lipstick, powder and eye shadow, so this book is for YOU!

Everyday nude palettes
A nude eyeshadow palette is a modern makeup staple. The combination of shades from light to dark means they suit a lot of different skintones, and as they can be layered and blended in every way they’re pretty much foolproof to use. For me, they’re a kit essential because they’re so versatile - the light to medium shades are perfect for creating subtle day looks while the darker shades can be layered for evening eyes with sophisticated drama. Obviously as most of you will already know, Urban Decay’s Naked palette was the one that kicked off the trend for great multi-toned, neutral palettes and it’s still one of the classics (and now comes in five different variations). Here are a few others that are also really good…
