Last week, I had lunch with Tine from Beautyholics Anonymous and Lilpil from Things I Love. They are so lovely and generous to a baby beauty blogger like me – Tine gave me tons of haircare products and Lipil passed me some FACE OF AUSTRALIA goodies; whereas I gave them a MUA lippy each. Anyway, amongst the goodies, there was an eyeshadow palette – FACE OF AUSTRALIA Opulent Eyes Sapphire Desire. Look how gorgeous the colours are.
Anyway, the other day, I spontaneously decided to film a make-up tutorial called Colourful Opulent Eyes (hmmm, I wonder how I came up with that name??). Here is a photo of the FOTD.
And before you watch the video, I want to say a few things about it :-
- My favourite YouTube make-up videos are made by Michelle Phan and Bubzbeauty. They follow a similar style which is step-by-step tutorial with background music and voiceovers. However, the professional make-up artist Lisa Eldridge has the best tips and advice for make-up application. Seeing as I am not a professional make-up artist and I am not very articulate, my video is in a similar vein to Michelle Phan and Bubzbeauty.
- The picture quality is poor because I recorded this on my Hubby’s MacBook’s webcam. It is my first time editing a video using iMovie – and I didn’t read the manual – and I have never owned a Mac so the whole operating system is so different to Windows.
- Thus, please forgive me if you find my make-up sub-standard and the editing and the quality of the video poor. I am quite happy with it considering I mostly did it for fun. It wasn’t fun after 12 hours of editing though…LOL
If you watched till the end, thank you for your support. Please do let me know what you think of my video. I welcome constructive criticism because it helps me improve. And yes, can you hear my Scottish accent?? LOL
