Messing About with My Makeup

makeup beauty video

Sorry, I look a bit moody here don’t I? I do smile but I never catch it on camera properly for a stills shot. I always get myself mid-grin looking like someone who’s escaped from an institution. Oh well. It won’t affect your enjoyment of the video, I hope – it’s an informal old thing, anyway. Just me messing about with some makeup – lots of new bits and pieces. The lighting is a bit yellow, perhaps, because I had a weird lamp on and it turned everything a shade of jaundice. Shan’t do that again! I also managed to break my favourite Louise Young brush by leaving it in the sink – it’s a brilliant, chunky brush that’s almost like some kind of heavy-duty masonry-paint brush. It really gets the product on fast and leaves a good finish.

I love this lipstick from Chanel: La Favorite. It’s – wait for it – my favorite this spring! I also love, very much, the Theodora palette from Urban Decay (review here). I think it’s out in Debenhams this week – if it is it’ll be in this section: Urban Decay
