Dramatic Pink Smokey Eye | Valentines Day Inspiration

2017 is going to be my blogging year. It’s my ultimate goal to become a better blogger this year! I got a bit bummed down with YouTube at the end of last year. I invested in two soft box lights, a few tripods and a few other bits and pieces for video recording.. but my videos still didn’t look great. Then I thought it was my camera, and waited until closer to Christmas to potentially invest in a new one.. but then I saw how much the cameras were going to cost, so I went to Cuba instead!

However, at work we have a new ring light now. So, if I add my lighting equipment, along with the work ring light, and natural light coming through the windows (unlike in my basement apartment), this should be the winning combination I have been waiting for!

I have come out with my newest makeup tutorial on YouTube using this new recording method. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. Yes, I’m still struggling with editing, it takes me a few days to get it right and it irritates the living shit out of me!! But I get there in the end! So I’m going to make it my business to do more videos! Here’s the first one of 2017..

Valentines Day is upon us. What better way to flatter whoever is looking at you that with some eye-catching makeup! In this tutorial you get to see me wearing absolutely zero makeup for the first time on my YouTube channel. I have never done a “chatty” tutorial either, this is my first one filming in this way. I enjoyed chatting through the look, I feel it ended up being a bit of a lengthy video but hopefully it will be insightful for some! Let me know what you think!

Here are some pictures of the finished look

I would like to take a moment to make a comparison to this years look in this post and last years Valentines Day Makeup Looks.. What a different a year makes! I’m grateful of my little blog for documenting my progress!

How do you like this look? I would love to hear your thoughts on my video, especially the lighting.. Does it look ok? How about the chatty approach in the video? How does it come across? I’m looking forward to creating the next video soon!
