The YSL Swimming Pool Makeup Tutorial

YSL Swimming Pool

I first filmed this tutorial in Greece, but when I got ALL THE WAY HOME I realised that the application part hadn’t filmed properly! So it has taken me a while to get the finished video to you – some will remember the original teaser pics on Instagram. July, was it? Oh well. I actually think that this look suits Autumn better anyway. It’s kind of bold, but I really do think that I’ll wear it again – it’s easy to do and you don’t have to worry about hair, which is just slicked back. Hurray!

    So refreshing to see you actually wearing some makeup, Ruth- your natural look is always lovely and flattering, but sometimes, especially when you’re a young model (!!), jazz things up some and go BIG. I love it and it looks not at all clown-ish or crazy, just pretty!! Thanks for the post xoxo Beth in Pgh ;-)

    You look just like my mom’s wedding pics, in that makeup–it’s uncanny!
