I’ve been in a little bit of a rut lately when it comes to blog posts. I try to post as many reviews as I can, but I haven’t been hauling anything new lately and I am just using things up. What should I write about?
Then I found a great suggestion in one of the blogs on my feed. The Sunday Girl has a list of prompts for beauty blogging! Today’s post is one such prompt, on my favorite tips that I learned from Youtube.
When I am getting ready in the morning, I usually have my TV on with the sound on mute, and I watch a few Youtube videos while I do my makeup. According to Youtube, I am currently subscribed to 31 channels, the majority of which are beauty related. While I do watch tutorials, I have never recreated a look. However, there are a few tips that I have picked up from watching those tutorials.
While I was writing this blog post, I tried to search for “how-to” videos which really changed how I do my makeup. Surprisingly, all of them came from the same channel – Pixiwoo. You have probably heard of Pixiwoo before – two sisters who are makeup artists, and also the creators of Real Techniques brushes.
The “how to apply false lashes” tutorial is the best one that I have seen. I used to use my fingers to apply falsies, but I have found that tweezers are much easier!
When I started watching Youtube videos, I did not understand what people meant by blending eyeshadow. At that time, most people in Japan did not use eyeshadow brushes, with sponge tips being much more popular. After watching this video, I became much more familiar with blending, and hopefully my makeup looks better because of it.
While this is not a “how-to”, this video taught me a lot about hygiene in makeup. I used to use testers freely, but now I am more careful to make sure there are disposables there before using anything.
What are your favorite tips that you learned from Youtube or from beauty blogs?
