Get Ready With Me – Winter Edition + 3 Lip Options

Winter Makeup Tutorial

I did it!  Last weekend I sat down and filmed a fun ‘Get Ready With Me’ video.  I have been trying to get back in to filming YouTube videos for a while now, but each time I sat down, I just couldn’t get myself to start talking on camera.  I know it sounds ridiculous, and there are far worse things in life.  But I had a serious mental block after I wrote this blog post.  It took me a full 6 weeks to feel like I wanted to film another video again, and so I sucked it up & started small.

I missed interacting with you in a different way than blog posts and social media.  I missed the whole creative side of filming a video.  So, a couple of weeks ago I sat down and thought about all the things that bothered me about the whole YouTubing process.  I’m not going to list the things here in the blog post, because I doubt it’s something you’re interested in.  I sat down with a cup of tea and started thinking of SOLUTIONS to the ‘problems’.  I think I came up with some positive ideas and here I am today, posting about my first video since I decided to take a break from the ‘tube.

I actually really like the end-result of this video – basically it’s just you and me, listening to music while I apply a full face of makeup.  The makeup look I created is a Winter-inspired makeup look, plus I give you 3 lip options to wear with it (should you decide to recreate the look).  For me, there are 3 stars of the show in this video – the new MAC Dazzleshadow in ‘She Sparkles’ (part of the MAC Le Disko collection launching in July), the new Lancôme Hypnôse Volume-à-porter mascara, and the new L’Oréal Color Riche lipstick in ‘Preliminaire’.

I also tried something a little bit different with the editing of the video – I think it looks good (without tooting my own horn), what do you think?

All brushes used in the video are indicated on the screen while I’m using them – the blush brush I used is new to my collection and I am loving it!

Let me know which lip option is your favourite, I’d love to know!  I’m in love with L’Oréal Color Riche lipstick in shade Preliminaire but I know it’s extremely bold and might not be for everyone.  Preliminaire is part of the new Color Riche lipstick range that launched beginning of June.

I have a few ideas for videos I want to film during the next few weeks, so make sure you subscribe to my channel here.  I’m actually planning on filming another video later today – wish me luck!

    Stunning, Luzanne! I love the third lip option, I like a statement lip. :)

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:31

      Thanks so much for watching, Kelebogile. :)

  2. Jenna 29 June 2015 / 13:13

    Option 2 is more my style but I loved the whole video. I’m SOOOOOO happy to see you back on Youtube again, I really missed you. xxxxxxxxxxxxx

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:31

      I’m happy to be back, Jenna! Thanks so much for being so supportive. 😉 x

    Welcome back :-)

  4. farzana 29 June 2015 / 14:20

    Absolutely beautiful, lip option 1 is my fav.

    So happy to see you are back to filming again, I’ve been hoping for a return. :)

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:32

      I also like a good neutral everyday lip shade. :) Happy to be back!

  5. Porchia 29 June 2015 / 14:20

    Oh my god, Preliminaire is amazing!!!!!

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:33

      Isn’t it incredible? It honestly doesn’t look like much in the lipstick bullet, but once applied it completely transforms. :)

  6. Talya 29 June 2015 / 14:33

    I enjoyed this video so much thanks Luzanne. 😀

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:33

      You’re welcome, Talya. Thank you for taking the time to watch the video & leave a comment.

  7. Odette 29 June 2015 / 14:40

    Aaaaah this makeup look is so perfect for Winter and I love how you used so many shadows from one palette.

    I need to get my hands on MAC Select Cover Up concealer, Benefit High Beam, Stila eyeshadow palette and the Lancome mascara. Do you like that mascara, Luzanne?

    Odette XO

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:35

      That palette is definitely a firm favourite of mine. :)

      The MAC Select Cover-Up concealer is great, you won’t be disappointed. I’m so glad Benefit is coming back to SA in July, I want to get my hands on a few more of their products.

      I love the mascara, from the very first time I used it I knew it would be a winner. The mascara wand is plastic (which I LOVE) and the formula is quite wet and jet black. No flaking and no clumping either.

    What do you think of the Beauty Fix makeup spray?

    I wish I had your makeup skillz

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:37

      I like it, it feels very refreshing on the skin and takes the edge off when I’ve applied too much powder. It makes my makeup look more natural because it helps everything set and blend together. It’s difficult to explain, but it makes my foundation look a bit more like skin. :)

      Thank you for the lovely compliment, Wendy.

  9. Em Cameron 29 June 2015 / 14:53

    Well done! Loved it. I have my eye on that Revlon lip butter.

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:39

      It’s the perfect shade for Autumn and Winter, plus you can apply it as sheer or as intense as you want.

      I honestly love all my Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters, they feel so comfy on the lips.

  10. Marné 29 June 2015 / 15:09

    Back with a bang!!!
    Well done, jy het niks om oor bekommerd te wees nie, dis stunning verby!! Ek lief opsie 2, dit pas jou so goed.

    Wil by jou hoor, het jy al ooit UTU en Ecotools se makeup brushes gebruik (beskikbaar by Clicks)?
    Sal graag wil hoor wat jy daarvan dink en hoe dit vir jou vergelyk met Cala en Real Techniques

    • Luzanne 29 June 2015 / 17:43

      Jippieee! Ja, ek het hierdie video baie geniet om te film! 😀

      Ek het al albei probeer – die UTU borsels is nie my favourite nie, want hulle voel bietjie hard op my vel (veral die sagte vel op die oë) en hulle shed ook verskriklik maklik nadat mens hulle gewas het. Eco Tools is ‘n ander storie, ek hou baie van hulle. Ek het 2 van die klein travel sets and dis meestal al waarmee ek travel as ek weggaan vir ‘n lang naweek. Hulle hou ook goed in terme van ‘shedding’ nadat hulle ‘n goeie was gekry het, hulle verloor nie te veel haartjies nie.

      MAAR as ek moet kies tussen CALA, Real Techniques en Eco Tools…dan sal ek eerder CALA en Real Techniques koop. CALA en Real Techniques voel baie sagter op die vel, hulle blend ook grimering baie vinniger and makliker en hulle hou ook langer.

      • Marné 29 June 2015 / 22:50

        Aaaw thanx, ek waardeer. Ekt dit gesien in Clicks en gewonder hoe dit vergelyk; ek is ook mal oor Cala, nog nie RT probeer nie. Nou weet ek, dankie xx

    Wow loved the video!! Picked up a few tips I am going to incorporate in my makeup routine in the mornings. But please tell what were the songs you played? Loved the tunes as well :)

  15. Bianca 30 June 2015 / 12:06

    Hi Luzanne,

    I loved your new YouTube video, your makeup is beautiful.
    I just want to ask you if the new MAC Dazzleshadows are permanent or are they limited edition?
