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!

  3. Hey ruth

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

    Thanks

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

  4. I really enjoyed this video. Love your blog Ruth, and the monologue dialogue, excellent!
    if you have time drop by my blog, love to hear what you think :)

  5. who are you wearing (shirt)? Gorgeous.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. i think any video/post you make about your makeup instantly makes me want to purchase all the products you use just because you look so gorgeous!

  9. Hi Ruth I love the shirt- where is it from? x

  11. Loving the makeup Ruth! You are so funny even when you don’t try to be. Love you! :D xxx

  12. This is a beautiful make up look and the colors look gorgeous on you! I hope its not too much to ask but could you recommend some skin care products for my very dry + flakey skin? Im looking for a very good exfoliater (but gentle) and a moisturizer. I appreciate any help you can give me! :)

  13. 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!

  14. Haha, I think you are being a bit strict on yourself! The video is not THAT long, and not boring at all =) I like it! Funny comment on the posing =)

  15. 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!

  16. Love the VoiceOver video – very funny :)
