I have been sick recently. Nothing drastic, just a cold which left me feeling a bit run down and highly disinclined to bother with smouldering eye makeup or classic red lips. I just wanted to smother on some Balm Balm and hibernate under a blanket. But as all moms know, sometimes we are required to be superwomen. This gave me the idea of doing a short little video on how I cheat my way to a healthy-looking glow.
Except I might have overdone it a bit. I had this notion that if you want stuff to show up on film you need to go big, so I go from looking pale and miserable to looking a circus clown depending on the screen resolution. I also accidentally used my powder/bronzer brush as a blusher brush so ended up with hyper-pink cheeks. But I was feeling a bit too blah to redo the entire video!
