I am so excited to share that I have finally taken the plunge and created my very own YouTube channel! I've recently been working on my first video and it is now published for the world to see! Having my own channel has always been on the back of my mind ever since I delved into the world of beauty and makeup about five years ago - I actually discovered the amazing beauty community through YouTube before even knowing about the wonderful platform that is blogging and that I have come to love.
While writing has always come naturally to me, talking in front of a camera is an area in which I have zero experience, and after filming and editing my first video, I've come to realize how much time and effort goes into creating a video. I have so much respect for those of you who already do it, it is no easy task and has definitely been a learning experience for me with figuring out how to use the filming settings on my camera, coming up with a setup that has decent lighting, and of course the whole editing process which comes with the package.
For my first video, I decided to film a Makeup Tutorial/Get Ready With Me and I was inspired by one of my favourite singers, the talented Carrie Underwood, to create this look. She is such a beautiful person both inside and out. I actually had the opportunity to see her in concert last year, and it was nothing short of amazing! I tried to recreate her signature makeup look: smokey brown eyes, glowing skin, a light cheek flush and soft pink lips. The result is natural and wearable, definitely something you would see me wear on days when I want to play up my eyes but still not look too 'made-up'.
If you are keen on keeping up with me through my videos, it would mean so much if you hit that subscribe button! I have so many ideas for future videos bouncing around in my head that I just don't know what to film next haha! If you have any suggestions, I would love to hear from you! :)
As always, thanks for reading, and hopefully now watching! ;)
