Beauty – AW13 Evening Make-Up Video

The awkward moment you decide to make a new video for your once fairly active YouTube channel only to realise you haven’t touched it in years. This is what I would call this post if it was a performance art piece. Sadly it isn’t. Instead it is an ode to my laziness when it comes to video. I love recording them, I love editing them but for some reason I can never find the time. This is all changing now though. Enough procrastination,  I am jumping back on the bucking bronco and I plan on staying there a while. 

To revive my channel, I went with a classic look, perfect for drinks in the evening or your office Christmas party. My main motto when it comes to beauty is that anything you do to your face or hair shouldn’t get in the way of the rest of your life. So it has to be quick and easy. No point in spending hours in the bathroom preening when you can dedicate 10 minutes to your make-up routine and be done with it. Life is too short to be spent with a mascara wand in your hand. So this is my mission in this new chapter of my short YouTube history: to give you a selection of quick and cute looks to try at home.
