Social distancing with… makeup artist Ausra Ruksene

Tuesday 31st March, 2020

My life hack tip is…

Not reading or listening to the news! I consciously took a decision nearly a year ago to do so and it made a world of difference. There is very little positive news, especially now! I make sure I follow government’s announcements to be aware of current situation and it's all I need.

My resolution is…

To film series of Instagram IGTV videos about beauty and makeup that hopefully will teach women on how to do beauty rituals at home!

I’m learning…

I absolutely love learning new techniques or perfect existing skills in makeup and hair so watching as many tutorials online as I possibly can!

What makes me happy…

Playing with my puppy! Just before the lockdown we got ourselves an Italian Greyhound puppy called Enzo. He is the sweetest and cuddliest dog ever!

I’m reading…

Lisa Eldridge ‘Face Paint’. Got this book long time ago and never had time to read it! It's all about makeup history. 

I’m watching…

The last program I’ve watched was by comedian Michael McIntyre ‘Happy and Glorious’ live at the 02 arena on Amazon Prime. Highly recommend for a really good laugh and positive energy! 

I’m wearing…

My favorites have to be relaxed cotton – linen trousers and cropped organic cotton hoodie from COS. It’s super comfortable yet stylish! 

I’m listening…

Playlist that is on most of the time is ‘Elevate’ on Amazon Alexa. Very relaxing, uplifting, happy music.

I’m eating…

Way too many treats! I'm a serious offender of eating too many sweets, but trying to balance it out with home cooked meals. I love soups, luckily my family as well, so I make them very often. I probably could eat beetroot soup every day of the week.

My home beauty rituals…

Manicure and pedicure. I love doing it by myself. Beautiful, polished nails make me happy. I usually stick to colours like deep red wine or pastel, very pale pink.

I keep fit and healthy…

I either do HHIT at home or yoga, preferably in the morning. For yoga I absolutely love Youtube channel ‘Yoga with Adriene’.

App I’ve recently discovered or use the most…

Instagram is my most used app. I mainly use it for my work as well as to get inspired by beautiful creations of other artists.

My ways of keeping in touch…  

What would we do without internet! Emails, messenger and What's app is what I use to stay in touch with my family and friends.

 

Let's keep in touch: Instagram @ausra.ruk.
