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!
