Get ready with me!

Hello internet!

So, it's the one-year anniversary of this blog! And... I did a thing. I know this is not my usual medium, but since I often get a lot of friends asking about makeup products and how to use them, I thought it would be helpful to actually record a Get Ready With Me video.

I wanted to give a disclaimer first: this video is literally me getting ready for my day. I’m not a Youtuber,  and I don’t have any fancy lighting or camera setups. Is it professional-looking? No. Is it real? Yes. It was early in the morning, and I was at my desk like I always am, watching Youtube videos while I put my face on before work. I just decided to turn on a camera this time.

I hope someone out there finds this helpful. I had to edit and speed up the footage but hopefully you can get a good idea of how I do things. In total, it took me about half an hour to do my full face.

Please note that this is just how I decided to do my makeup on this particular day - everyone does their own makeup differently, and even I change things up constantly. So please don’t take anything I do as a mandate or as a criticism of your own style - this is just a demonstration to hopefully inspire you to try things out on your own. And if you get super bored, you can scope out my bookshelf in the background. =P
