Video Posting

Hello All! Today I just want to give big props to all the YouTube makeup artists and anyone who makes their own tutorials no matter what it may be for, because as I am now learning it is HARD!!

One of the things I really wanted to do when I started this blog was to post makeup video tutorials to teach and inspire, so for the past week I have been videoing every single minute of my makeup application routine, and after approximately 50 hours of footage (haha just kidding!), I have come to the conclusion that:

A)I take way too long applying my makeup
B)Making these videos are hard!

Not only do you have to have a look you want to show the world, you have to be able to speak on video and sound natural and knowledgeable, find the right angle and lighting so you look good, and try to keep the video within a reasonable time frame so you don't have to trim too much off (I am having trouble with this step). You also have to try not to make mistakes so as to keep editing to a minimum, and pray the phone doesn't ring, the battery doesn't die, you haven't forgotten products you will need, your sleepy boyfriend doesn't walk into the frame, etc. Besides all of that pressure over your head, you are doing the first 3 or so minutes completely naked, and when I say naked, I mean not a stitch of makeup on your face-nothing... nada...completely exposed to the whole world! On top of it all, I am now getting a crash course in video editing, something I've never done before.

So once again, to all you video vixens and YouTube cowboys! I raise a glass to you, but watch out because once I learn how to fade in and fade out(and trim at least 30 minutes off my clips), I am throwing my hat into the video ring to give you killer makeup tutorials!

Monday's Product of the Week:

Liquid Lustre Lip Gloss

Little Goddess Liquid Lustre glosses = intensely shiny lips with sexy pops of shimmery color! Some women feel that gloss is a summertime product, but I wear gloss almost everyday, year-round, because it makes my pout pop! My favorite Liquid Lustre color of the moment is "Seduction"... a perfect combination of pink with gold shimmer that lives up to its name! Little Goddess Liquid Lustre's are always slick and never sticky. Wear alone or layer over lipstick and lip-liner. Available at
