Model Makeup Tutorial: Daytime Chic for the Audi Polo

A Model Recommends

 A quick and easy little makeup tutorial video here; it’s what I did for the day I went to the polo. This is definitely the LAST polo post! Promise. As usual, the By Terry base is just flawless and glowy, and the Givenchy Mono Shadow paired with the Dior 3 Couleurs Smoky gives a nice, muted smoky eye. New things … Read More

The Amazing, All-New M&S Beauty Department!

New Marks and Spencer Beauty Department

I’m going to cut straight to the chase with this, because it’s late and I’m tired. I have been sat on the tube trying to think of some witty one-liners involving cotton knickers and my penchant for M&S value packs of tights, but I really can’t summon up the brainpower needed to sculpt a fine body of writing full of … Read More

Lancome “Rouge In Love” Lipsticks

Lancome "In Love" Lipsticks

Gorgeous Lancome lippies. Shades, from left to right: 159B, 146B, 200B and 340B. The three to the right are my favourites from the entire range, but there are loads of shades including quite a bonkers purple! I do envy anyone brave (or crazy) enough to wear purple on their lips. I have enough of a confidence meltdown wearing red! The … Read More

Oily Skin that’s also Sensitive? A Solution…

La Roche-Posay Efflacar H Compensating Soothing Moisturizer

So many people email me or leave comments asking about products for oily skin that’s also sensitive. It’s quite a difficult little situation, really, because many soothing moisturisers and treatments are unsuitable for oily or blemish-prone skins – and also, I have no idea what people have been doing to their skin (if anything) to make it sensitive in the … Read More

Old-School Glamour 2: Lancome and Jimmy Choo!

A Model Recommends

Another “old-school” glamour photo for you before the full-length video comes out. (The first one posted last week and featured YSL and Polaroid.) This time I’m in Lancome’s Miss Coquelicot and Jimmy Choo’s Justine Sunglasses. I managed to smudge the lipstick as I was filming, so it’s a bit “hazy” down one side – ever the pro, I tell you, … Read More

Thread Vein Removal: An Alternative to Lasers

Dr Brian Newman

I have some thread veins on my legs and they have always bothered me a little. I’ve never mentioned it before, because on the scale of things they are pretty small-fry – you’d have to be right up close and personal to get a good look at them, and from a distance the little trees of dark veins just look … Read More

Getting ready for the Polo – and more pics of Kate!

Model Ruth Crilly at the Audi Polo 2012

Sorry to those who are bored of my Polo pics – I would have just put everything up at the same time but I have been away so much that it’s been impossible to get sorted! The video below the photos is a vlog with some footage from the Audi Polo event and some film showing what I did with … Read More

Filorga Sale – Snap ‘em Up!

Filorga Meso-C

It looks like House of Fraser are selling off all of their Filorga Products. I hope they’re not discontinuing, because that would be a real shame. Everything that I’ve tried from this French brand has been really quite amazing – high performance but with more of a luxe feel than some of my other favourite brands. The Sleep and Peel is … Read More

Palm Trees and Palaces: Beverly Hills 90210

beverly hills bedford avenue

This is me, standing at the side of the road (or “street”, I should say) in Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills 90210 to be precise. Where Bedford meets Carmelita. (They’re not people, they’re street names.) I fell in love with Beverly Hills. In all fairness, it was baking hot when I made the below video – the sky was bright blue, … Read More
