Easy Festival Makeup and The Quickest Smokey Eye

youtube makeup tutorial

I’ve been a bit out of sorts for the past few days, so apologies for the lack of post yesterday, I know how many of you look forward to the Sunday Tittle Tattle! I’ll be back into the swing of things shortly, but for now here’s the latest video – a very quick and easy smokey eye look. I’ve called it “Festival Makeup” but – in all honestly – that’s only because I filmed it as everyone was trotting off to Glastonbury. It’s a great little look for just about any occasion; slightly grungy and undone.

The most festival-appropriate part of the look is the incredibly quick smokey eye – you could smudge this about on your face even if you were half cut, lying in your tent, squinting at the person next to you and wondering whether you’d landed in a parallel universe. Or whatever it is that happens at festivals. All you need – for the smokey eye look – is one of those jumbo eye pencils, and there are loads of them about, and a blending brush. The brush does make things a little neater, but you could just as easily smudge using fingertips or a cotton bud. Or – and I’m improvising here, because of the festival theme – a small twig wrapped in a piece of napkin. Or the pointy end of a (clean, unwrapped) Lil-lets tampon. Good grief, imagine a picture of yourself doing that ending up on Instagram! But would it work? I feel a new video coming on…

Enough of my ridiculous speculating: here’s the video. I’ve listed the products beneath the screen, for easy reference.

    Ah Ruth, I so enjoy your posts (most especially via The Uphill because I’m in the same boat). Between ‘half cut’ and the Lil-Lets line, this cracked me up.
    If you’re ever in Melbourne, Australia, do come over for a few vinos.
