50 shades of grey, grey shades in make-up

Condensing at least 50 beauty products into one video was pretty challenging.  I actually had a different kind of video in mind but it was too difficult to pull off and being a one-woman-show, it wasn’t going to happen.  Oh well.  And my silly new camera was having a weird filming fit and the Autofocus of the Canon 650D is BAD!!  And then iMovie threw a tantrum and deleted my title text for #49 – Orly Steel Your Heart!!  Oh well…  I tried!

If there are any of the items that you want a more detailed review of, please let me know in the comments.  Anyway, I want to know how many shades of grey you have in your make-up collection?  Maybe you can film the sequel – 50 Shades Darker!!!

    Thanks for the great video Ling! I will def consider injecting more grey into my make up stash from now on. I’m amazed at you girl, this video would have taken ages to film! You’re awesome!! I read the 50 Shades of Grey book…and it really wasn’t as good as it was hyped up to be 🙁
