New Year's Eve Indulgent Makeup

ruth crilly new year makeup tutorialI have wheeled out lots of my all-time (and new) favourites to create a bit of an indulgent New Year’s makeup look. The irony here is that I am probably staying in – I have my sister and her husband coming to stay and we are going for a tres chic dinner on New Year’s Day instead. All of us here at AMR HQ are a bit bored of starting the New Year with a raging hangover! (No doubt we’ll still manage to tuck away some champers, though!)

I have listed all of the products used beneath the video pane – some of the prices are a bit of a shocker, but surely you expect that from me by now? The Sisley masks are still two of my staple rescue products – a little goes a long way, and the results are superb, making the prices a little less heart-stopping! The By Terry is my new favourite foundation – smoothing, radiance-enhancing, light-reflecting. I adore it and will most definitely re-purchase once the tube is finished. (Which won’t be too far away at this rate!)

  1. I was hesitant to purchase the Eyes to Kill in 6 cause my skin tone clashes horribly with anything with yellow goldish tones in it, but it looked gorgeous in all your videos that I just had to try it. Arrived on Monday and I’ve been using it all week! Amazing texture, and I really do believe that this pigment would work on most any skin tone. Thanks for the rec and Happy New Years!

  2. Thanks for the skin advice before….am going to succumb to some vichy dermablend methinks! Do you know anywhere in the UK I may be able to try it (to get a match for my skin) esp as I want it for the scars which are WAY darker than by natural face colour? Have an awesome New Year with your family….and I hope and pray all your wishes and dreams for 2012 come true. xx

    • @Zahra hmmmmm. I shall check in my Boots for testers – I’m pretty sure Dermablend themselves send out tiny colour-match samples… Leave it with me! xx

  3. Love this look. Can’t believe I had the chance of a freebie Giorgio eye shadow and I gave it to another girl! Fool!! One question, Ruth – do you never use powder?

    Hope you – and your fabulous make-up – have a great New Year. Thanks for all the reports over the last year.


    • @lizziee I do every now and again, yes, but I always forget in videos! It’s quite rare for me to use powder, I suppose… x

  4. Got inspired now, will try to do something similar. Thanks! x

  5. I MUST have that shade of Eyes to Kill shadow – you need to stop showing all these gorgeous looks using it, I’ll end up breaking down and just buying it, and then not pay my electricity next month!

  6. Wishing you a happy and a healthy New Year!!!

  7. Oh oh! I was surprised I saw pictures of you on figleaves.com/us modeling underwears!
    Preeettty! xx

  8. Hi Ruth, I am really interested in trying by Terry’s sheer expert. I was wondering if it’s similar to Tom Ford’s liquid foundation in coverage and finish? I am currently using the TF one and I like it, but if in your opinion by Terry lasts longer throughout the day, I’d go for it (I have combination skin). No chance of getting a sample, so your help is greatly appreciated :) xoxo

    • @Elena hmmm. I’ll have to dig out my TF samples and compare! From what I remember, though, TF probably has more coverage than the Sheer-Expert but the Sheer-E feels ‘cleaner’ to me, less like makeup! Does that make sense? The TF is very light though, too – I’ll try to remember to do a comparison! xx

  9. @Ruth Yes, please do a comparison/review :) maybe on youtube as well :) in my opinion TF has more coverage than e.g. Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer. I love the way the TF one looks and it’s a perfect shade for me (for once) but I have an issue with it lasting during the day, so I have to use a primer. I’ll definitely try by Terry’s when I make my way to Barneys. Thanks very much for your reply xoxo
