My Homemade Burberry Makeup Look

burberry beauty look model

So many people commented on my makeup that I wore to the Burberry show that I thought I’d knock together a quick recreation of it on video. It isn’t exact, I’m afraid, but that’s partly because I didn’t have the foggiest recollection of how I’d done it all in the first place. I often apply my makeup whilst half asleep, munching on toast between brush strokes and using one arm to restrain the cat as he tries to eat the contents of my makeup bag.

So it’s a “rough”, as we used to say at school. It’s only the Rough, Miss! I’ll do joined up handwriting for Best! I am quite taken with the two Burberry products used here – the Splash palette and the Fresh Glow powder. Both are so gorgeously made – it makes application a dream. I have to give due credit to the tools, though – the Real Techniques Duo Fiber brush is excellent for light-handed powder application and whatever that eye brush was (your guess is as good as mine – Becca, perhaps?) is a great fluffy shadow tool.

Let me know what you think! It has been ages since I used the Becca Skin Perfector  – I stopped showing it in videos for a while because it was never in stock and I thought that it would be mildly frustrating for people, but now Space NK seem to have a steady supply. See links below for stockists and more info on each product. If you’re reading on email then please click here to watch the video.

    I’m sure you’ve already seen – but real techniques are in a buy one get one half price in Boots atm – including the set you linked to ( I bought the Core collection and the Powder Brush in the offer a couple of weeks back – and am now trying to persuade myself I don’t need the one you recommended too!

  4. Such a beautiful look!

  5. I absolutely loved this look!

  6. Hi Ruth , can you pleaseee do a review on Jouer tinted moisturizer? I’m dying to try it but it’s quit an expensive product for me to just buy without a proper review :)

  7. Burberry is definitely my fav. brand, i guess just because it looks so luxirious and exotic..and the colors look so earthy and natural..even the blue looks so subtle. beautiful make especially your eyes look stunning Ruth!

  8. Ruth your eyes look beautiful here. Something about this look makes your eyes stand out!
