Two Sizzling Summer Makeup Looks!

model makeup tips ruth crilly

Two red-hot summer makeup looks for you – each one only focuses in on one feature, so for the first it’s the lips and the second it’s the eyes. They were both ridiculously easy to do, which I personally put down to the quality of the products and not any kind of talent on my part! I do hope that you like them – some of these products are now in my ‘everyday’ kit, including the Armani shadows which are far too glitzy for everyday use but I don’t care! Shopping List with all product details is below the video!

    My goodness those eye shadows are amazeballs! Also, as a fellow fan of attention seeking lips I can highly recommend the OCC Lip Tar in Beta, I might even go so far as to say it’s brighter than the clarins lipstick! Fab post and vid x

    I can’t believe how fantastic that bright orangey lipstick looks on you! It really lights up your face. The other look is nice as well, but this one is definitely a killer!

    I know youve been on a hunt for a good tinted moisturizer. I think Caudalie is amazing just as all their products.
    I recommend Josie Maran tinted moisturizer. If you never tried it you should give it a go. It’ s amazing. It is organic made with Argan oil ( which is known for its antiagaging, anti-inflammatory, rejuvenating ect ect properties). The tm absorbs great and covers almost as good as foundation but leave your skin looking like skin not make up. And it doesn’t shift all day. Plus I noticed it has been consistently improving my skin.
    Give it a go and let us know what you think:)

    Fellow (ex) model here :) I am loving the videos and your web. Just discovered recently. Amazing idea, you are awesome! Keep up the great work.
    Love and light***

    Love these looks! Also love your nail varnish, just wondered do you wear a base/top coat? If so which make would you recommend? x

      @Alexa sometimes I use the OPI fast drying top coat, but actually unless I’m wearing a dark colour that’ll stain (which is about once a year!) I just wear a few coats of the polish! xx
