What Is Vine?

ruth crilly a model recommends beauty and style blog

As if we didn’t have enough things to do online already (shopping, emailing, watching funny kittens) the internet has thrown us another time-sapping activity: Vine. Vine is a new twitter app that lets you produce 6-second long “looping” videos (as you’d think: they just go round and round) and post them up for all to see. You have to record … Read More

Messing About with My Makeup

makeup beauty video

Sorry, I look a bit moody here don’t I? I do smile but I never catch it on camera properly for a stills shot. I always get myself mid-grin looking like someone who’s escaped from an institution. Oh well. It won’t affect your enjoyment of the video, I hope – it’s an informal old thing, anyway. Just me messing about … Read More

Barry’s Bootcamp: Body Blitzing Brilliance

anya lahiri ruth crilly

I write this with aching, heavy limbs but an amazing sense of satisfaction and achievement: I completed my first ever session at Barry’s Bootcamp. Those from the states might have heard of Barry’s before; it has something of a cult status in LA and New York and is loved by celebrities and supermodels who want to get amazingly toned bods. … Read More

Sunday Tittle Tattle

Sunday Tittle Tattle (noun?): everything from the week that I have forgotten to post about, in easy brunch-sized chunks… 1) I am seriously addicted to Dexter now. (See last week’s Tittle Tattle.) The other day I thought to myself, “who shall I ring and chat to?” and the first person that popped into my head was Dexter’s sister, Debs! She doesn’t even … Read More

d.j.v. Beautinizer Mascara – Love it or your Money Back!

best mascara in the world

I thought that this offer might interest anyone who has been sitting on the fence about d.j.v. Beautinizer Mascara. I’ve gone on about the Volume Lash version forever; it’s one of my most-used makeup products. It coats the lashes with a kind of film rather than a liquid mascara – it won’t budge even if you sleep in it or take a … Read More

Clarins Jolie Rouge Brilliant Lipstick Review

Ruth Crilly Beauty Review on A Model Recommends

 My current lip-love is the beautiful Jolie Rouge Brilliant lipstick from Clarins. Actually: that, and the Chanel La Favorite from the Spring collection, but the Chanel is a little drying at the moment whereas the Clarins is ultra-moisturising. It has a really juicy texture and a sparkling finish that makes my lips look plumper and smoother. I’ve been using shade 17, Watermelon (smells incredible, but I … Read More

Anya Hindmarch at The Outnet

gracie bag

I’ve just done something a little bit naughty and snapped up the Anya Hindmarch bag that I had my eye on last year. I couldn’t justify it AT ALL full price, but half price? £197. It’s still incredibly expensive for the tiny size of it, but it’s beautifully made and the shape is quite a classic, I think. Also, I … Read More

Pale and Perfect Winter Tan

How to get a perfect winter tan

I wanted to do a bit of a perky-skin tan video this week, what with all the snow here in the UK. It’s easy to feel pasty and pale and sometimes nice to look a little sunkissed even if summer is ridiculously far away. I have a little colour on my face to begin with as I’ve been in Florida, … Read More
