Video Tutorial - Purple Smokey Eye (Phlox Look)

46 comments:
 
Thank you so much to all of you who took the time to watch and critique my first video tutorial. I've gone ahead and taken your suggestions and made a second tutorial for my Phlox inspired purple smokey look. 

It's far from perfect (I decided half-way through filming that I'd rather do voice overs than real time talking, so don't mind some of the audio not syncing with my lips moving) but it's getting easier for me to do, and I'm hoping to find an actual camera to film on soon because my MacbookPro webcam isn't really making the grade. If anyone has any suggestions or knows of someone selling a video camera for CHEAP let me know. I'd greatly appreciate it.

Anyways, as always I would really appreciate your feedback on this video so I can keep improving. For example: Do you prefer spoken or written instructions? Or both? Let me know and I hope you find this video useful. And please don't make fun of me being all lame and camera shy, lol. I've never been great at public speaking.

I also have a poll on my sidebar asking what types of tutorials you guys like seeing the most so if you haven't already done so, let me know what you like. I'm all about trying to make this blog as user friendly & interactive as possible. I truly value your opinions, they mean a lot to me and to the success of this blog.


Also, as a heads up - I will be starting Teacher's College tomorrow so I probably won't be able to be as active as I have been this summer but bear with me. I still plan on doing lots of posting and I have some amazing things coming up this month!

  6. I already told you on fb, but I think it's fab. Once you get a better camera, then you're all set! You're going to be a star, I know it. I prefer hearing voice over personally, but it really doesn't matter. As for good, cheap cameras, I know that Flip cameras are going out of business so they're getting rid of their merchandise. I see them at Target for less than $50!

  30. Very nice! I like it that way i.e first you present the video by talking and you do voiceovers when actually doing the tutorial. The look is awesome by the way!
    But a tip for you: it's better if the name of the products you're using appears on screen each time you take a product...

    Keep it up! :) can't wait for the next video!
