Video: how to do autumn makeup


Here’s an excellent video showing Ruby Hammer, a well-known British makeup artist, giving tips on how to do autumn makeup. Ruby has a wonderful cosmetics line with partner, Millie Kendall. What I like about this video is that Ruby uses very subtle, natural colors on the model. I hate glops of brightly colored, shiny makeup that make you look like a Las Vegas showgirl. Unfortunately many cosmetics companies today think that more is better. Apparenty they believe that strong colors, sparkly bits and shine translate automatically into sales.

There are a few, however, that believe otherwise, for example, Giorgio Armani’s makeup line which is beautiful and understated; Clarins; Laura Mercier; and Bobbi Brown.
