The Five Minute Makeup Challenge…

ruth crilly makeup video challenge

Just a bit of fun; I was tagged in the “five minute makeup challenge” by fellow beauty Youtuber, Marnie Goldberg, and decided to accept. I have never done one of these “tag” videos before, usually because they involve tasting weird foods or getting your boyfriend to draw on your face or other stuff that might be hilarious if you were twelve. God, I’m so grumpy, aren’t I? Ha!

Anyway, I expected this challenge to be easy-peasy – no way do I take longer than five minutes to do my makeup, I thought – but in actual fact it is incredibly difficult to do a full face of maquillage in under five minutes. Especially if you gabble as much as I do, waffling on about colds and product details and so on. Funny thing; if you’ve been doing beauty vids for a few years, you find yourself very naturally pausing to talk about each makeup item, wanting to explain what you like and don’t like about it and how to use it. I think it just happens out of habit – I even do it with friends, when they ask for recommendations and makeup advice. It must drive them bonkers!

But here we are: makeup in under five minutes. Supposedly. I don’t want to spoil it for you, so you’ll just have to watch to find out whether I made the grade! All of the products used are linked-to below, and my apologies re the absolutely gorgeous Chanel palette: it’s from last summer! It was still in my “to do” box, which shows just how far behind I am with things…

Products Used:

Chanel Perfection Lumiere Velvet Foundation (I wear shade 20): – applied with a Zoeva flat-topped foundation brush.

Bobbi Brown Bronzer in 01: – applied with a huge Chanel powder brush!
