DISCLAIMER: I am by no means a makeup artist nor am I trying to be one. I did say many times I AM IN LOVE with makeup and it’s something that makes me really happy and excited. Ever since I discovered YouTube, I’ve always pretended to do tutorials whenever I did my makeup. This is just a test video.
This is a really amateur setup. I used the light from my IHome mirror and I borrowed my little sister’s camera. I was just playing around and getting acquainted with the editing software as well. So I KNOW this video ain’t 100. I’m posting it for the LOLs anyway. Started from the bottom.
I realized a few things while filming, one I do a really stupid expression when I’m applying my makeup and two, I should have switched the camera and the mirror so you guys could have gotten a direct view from in front of me. You should have seen the contraption my sister and I used to get the camera to stay steady. Let’s just say there was an upside down clothes basket and about 50 books and shoe boxes on top of that, and then the camera! Thank God there were no earthquakes because it would have squashed me!
I also realized in my editing, I sped up the parts you couldn’t see too well while I was still talking so some of the scenes don’t line up with the audio. Don’t worry, working on it! I cut this video down from 25 minutes to less than 6 minutes ‘cuz I really didn’t want to bore y’all. Also, holla to my expired eyelash glue that stopped drying clear. Can you say HOT MESS?
I called the president of my fan club for some advice,(yup, my fan club consists of my nieces and nephews ranging from 8 months old to 8 years old) and believe me, they are BRUTALLY, PAIN STAKINGLY honest and are probably professional YouTubers by now since they grew up on YouTube. She of course critiqued my video, I kid you not, this child told me what I should and shouldn’t do and what to do to post videos etc, and then she gave me an A for effort. She’s like, “Well, I like it. You’re now learning so it’s ok.”
That’s as good as it gets. So I’m gunna list a few of the products and their links so if you want them, you can get them. The ones I couldn’t find I put a picture of them.
