Quick Springtime Makeup – The Silent Movie

I made this video last week and thought you might like it. I just filmed myself silently doing my makeup ready for a different video (the Best of Spring Makeup video) and then decided that I quite liked the way it looked. I was going to keep it silent and just add subtitles, but then I got bored and thought that it would be easier just to do a voiceover.

So here I am, chit-chatting away through a few minutes of therapeutic makeup application. If you’re having trouble sleeping, get a load of this! Cup of tea at the ready? Sitting comfortably? Let’s go!

    I love this makeup look! The colors look gorgeous on you :) I hope its not too much to ask but would you be able to reccomened some skin care products for my very dry + flakey skin? I’m looking for a very effective exfoliator ( but gentle) and a moisturizer. I appreciate any help you can give me!

    Hi Ruth,

    I’ve been following you on youtube and reading your website for a while now, but this is the first time I am actually writing to you. I was wondering if you could recommend some budget eye creams. I am 23 now and maybe it’s just me but I start seeing some wrinkles around my eyes, or fine lines or whatever they call it which I am pretty sure weren’t there before. So, any suggestions?

    Have a good day!

    Not boring at all,it was lovely and funny and informative! Fabulous look too… I thought I was over blue eyeshadows, but that palette is quite grand on your skin.

    I really like the way you are doing your make-up, its seems to be easy and quick-with a great result, I wish to be able to do that in the same way… Oh and the voice over is so much fun, really enjoyed watching the video!

    Hey ruth

    I need a new lengthening mascara in your opinion should I go for the d.j.v. beautenizer or the Eyeko skinny?

      @Elly both lovely. DJV more volumising, easier to get off. Eyeko is a more beautiful, separated effect. x
