Model Beauty Tips: How I Get Glowing Skin

ruth crillyThis video has been my most-requested so far. Everyone wants healthy, radiant and glowing skin and so I’ve pulled together a collection of skincare and makeup products that I use on a regular basis. Some of them are quite dear, so sorry about that! I’ll be filming a more budget-friendly version very soon, but this takes a while longer as they are products that I need to test vigorously before recommending! Apart from the ‘glowy’ products used in the video, I’m just wearing a slick of mascara. Which just goes to show how well-prepped, radiant skin can be all the ‘look’ you need…

  1. i love it when u do videos like this… :D

  2. Great video Ruth!
    have you tried Rouge Bunny Rouge Highlighting Liquids? They are amazing, come in I think 4 different shades and I think they also have some bronzing ones. I also love Guerlain L’Or make-up base, it is gel based with gold in it, perfect for my combination skin.

  3. Love the video! Have you tried the Body Shop Glow Enhancer? I find it almost identical to the Becca ones (especially the light as a dupe for Becca Pearl and the medium for Becca Opal, both which I love) but they are more wallet friendly:-) Also, what mascara did you use in that video? Your lashes look fab!

  4. Chloé Elizabeth

    Great update, always looking for glowing tips! Have you used Guerlains Terracotta and/or Guerlain Meteorites base perfecting pearls? Wonder how Guerlains bronzer compares to the Sisley and if the meteorites are any good at giving a glow? x

  5. I LOVE your honesty.. I’d muuuch rather save for the nice stuff than buy the stuff that i won’t be happy with.

  6. Don’t know if this is rude but… how do you get the money for all of the things you test? Not that i wuldn’t believe it’s from all of your modelling i was just wondering if companies maybe send you things to test or you get special deals or something?

    • Yes of course; a lot of items are sent especially for review, and I have always been given a lot of products by brands as they like models to use them and give them feedback. I also have an insane spending habit! x

  7. Which mascara did you use in this video as your lashes look lovely?

  8. Hello Ruth,

    I love this video. Great tips. How often should a mask be used? Would you recommend to use one once a week or do you recommend using one more than once a week. Thank you.

  9. I just found your blog and YT channel and really liked it! I will add some of those goodies to my wishlist lol You should try Boots N7 Skin Illuminator, it’s one of my fave cream illuminators. it looks very natural and blends easily with skin so it’s perfect for people with oily skin or big pores. I hate the applicator that comes with a brush at the end though :( Regards from Barcelona <3

  10. You have to try Bodyshops vitamin E illuminating moisture cream. I tried it in replacement of clarins beauty flash balm and I would say the results are way better. It’s really nourishing, smells gorgeous leaves you feeling confident enough to wear no make up and is great value for money!
