Get ready with me video

Screen Shot 2014-10-15 at 10.31.36A few weeks ago, I gave a shout out on Facebook to see what you guys would like to see featured on The Beautiful Truth.  There was so many brilliant suggestions, but one comment that caught my attention was to post about how I get ready for a night out. I love finding out how people prepare themselves for a night on the tiles and how they do their hair and makeup.I have picked up so many ideas from posts like this and it got me thinking and I decided to try something new.

While getting ready for the Blog Awards a few weeks ago, I decided to film myself getting ready. I included every thing from hair, to skin prep and makeup. It takes me around 90 minutes, on a good day, to get myself presentable for a big night out. I have condensed the whole thing down into a 14 minute video.  This is my very first time trying something like this and I am not gonna lie I am more than a little bit nervous, so go easy on me. I am still learning about camera angles. lighting etc. I am also not a qualified MUA, so while I might not be technically correct in how i do things, it works for me.

I would love to know what you lovely lot think and if there is anything else you would like to see featured in future posts. Enough yapping out of me and I will just leave you with the video below.


UPDATE: Due to the music included in the video, the video won’t play on android devices!!! I’m trying desperately to fix it at the moment, so stick with me. It will play on apple devices and desktops
