Hello, friends! Wouldn’t it be fun if you and I could sit in my beauty room and do our makeup together? Well, that’s exactly what these ‘Get Ready With Me’ videos are like for me. These #GRWM videos are some of my favourites to film and watch, because it feels like we’re just relaxing together, applying our makeup and listening to some music. One day I would like to upload a ‘Chit Chat Get Ready With Me’ type video, where there is no fast forwarding and I chat to you about what’s been going on in my life in real time. But a video like that would be 30 minutes long (no jokes!) and I doubt anyone would want to watch me waffling on for half an hour. I personally don’t enjoy watching videos that are longer than 15 minutes, that’s why I like to keep mine under 10 minutes for the most part.
I had so much fun with this video! I filmed a ‘Get Ready With Me’ about a week ago before going out to run errands, attend a lunch meeting and do a bit of shopping. It’s a quick & easy makeup look – very glowy and natural, which is the type of makeup look I prefer. I’ve come to realise these past few months that I really enjoy filming makeup tutorials, ‘Get Ready With Me’ videos and the odd ‘How-To’ video. I’ve gone off filming haul videos as I’d rather just feature those products in a tutorial or review blog post anyway. Do you enjoy watching haul videos, or do you prefer tutorials?
In today’s video I used a lot of my current favourite makeup products and brushes – it’s a mix of both drugstore and high-end products. You will also see the ‘Shade Adjusting Drops’ from The Body Shop mentioned in this blog post, in action in the video.
I indicate the name of each product & brush on the screen while I’m using them, and going forward I will also list them in the accompanying blog post.
