My Current (Very Simple) Hair and Makeup Routine…

ruth crilly

Now and then I like to do one of these “current makeup” videos just to demonstrate some of the products that I’ve been using the most. If a product has been used daily for weeks on end then (for me, at least) it must be pretty good and it’s worth having a bit of a chat about. If I don’t do a video and get everything down on film, then quite often I move on to pastures new and completely forget to record my favourites. Mainly because there are always so many new things to try (I feel it’s my duty!) and it’s easy to pass over the everyday staples in favour of the sparkly and unfamiliar things that are sometimes more interesting to write about.

So, a very quick makeup routine – skin-centric, mostly, with a gorgeous foundation and some healthy-glow powders to finish. A dash of something sheeny on the eyes and a fabulous mascara that I can’t really rave about enough (the Noir Couture 4-in-1 from Givenchy, worth every little penny) and then onto a brief hair update. I have only had my hair “done” twice this year and so lots of the top section is now completely natural – I think it shows off the immense skill of my colourist, John Spanton, that it blends so nicely with the honeyed colours that he has painstakingly added in through the lengths over the past couple of years. It’s definitely time for a colour re-fresh, but considering that my hair hasn’t been touched since June… The man is a genius, I tell you. You can find him “in residence” at Trevor Sorbie in Covent Garden.

OK, here’s the vid – if you can’t be bothered to watch it then the product list is below! If for some reason you can’t view the video then please click here to find it on Youtube.
