Quick and Easy After-Beach Makeup

ruth crilly a model recommends

A quick and easy look to take you from beach to bar or wherever it is that you’re going. If you’re going to bed, don’t bother with the makeup, obviously! Haha. Ha.

Do you want to see a ‘before’ picture? Here you go then:

What a difference a spot of slap makes, hmm? This makeup took a matter of minutes – there’s nothing complicated about it, just good products. I filmed this video seven times in total, each time having to scrap it because one product or another didn’t work well in heat. (I closed off my office and made it sauna-like to test out the products!) The video below shows the final combination of products, with a couple of budget options thrown in here and there (something I might start doing more regularly, but only if the budget options meet my exacting standards!)

Stockist and ‘more info’ links are below the video pane for quick reference!
