Latest “Budget” Makeup and Skincare Finds…

ruth crilly model beauty blog

“Budget” in inverted commas, obviously, because my budget picks never turn out to be quite as affordable as I hope they will be! I think that I just have expensive tastes, unfortunately. But these are still a darn sight more affordable than some of my usual bits and bobs – mascara from Bourjois (one of my new favourites), serums from No7 and a nice, ultra-bright lipstick from Avon. I don’t think that’s out yet, but I’ll give you a nudge when it is.

I’ve done something a bit jazzy with this video – mainly because I was so incredibly bored with editing. Let me know what you think, but please be kind. I’m in a fragile mood after the last lot of Youtube trolls did their evil work on me – you try not to let it bother you but sometimes they are just a total pain in le arse. Please click here to watch the video if you’re reading on the Daily Fix email. If you want to see lots of other videos with favourite beauty discoveries, then you’ll find a directory of them here.
