Mirror Crush

I officially present to you, my first attempt at a tutorial! I wanted to take a chance on the NYX Face Awards and this is what I came up with. Previously, I had submitted another tutorial, so it's technically my third attempt, but the quality wasn't very good, so I wanted to try again. Filming and editing videos is difficult and very time-consuming! But I could totally get used to it, finally having an edited production in the end feels rather rewarding. My video doesn't have the best lighting as I messed up several times and spent most of the day recording. I am however, proud of the makeup and believe it represents me while showing a certain level of skill. I was able to borrow my brother's D7000 (which is freakin' sweet!), struggled throughout the whole process, and am excited to post this up now. I know it's a bit rough, but I hope you like the video! Let me know of any feedback you have, and please give it a thumbs up to vote for me in competing for National YouTube Beauty Vlogger of the Year!
