Super excited for my newest project and my first real collaboration in the works with a good friend of mine! ROSENDALE is an incredibly talented person, so talented that he has not one but TWO youtube channels. He’s wildly successful with his musical projects, which you can find here, and also makes hilarious beauty related videos which you can find here. We’ve been talking about doing a beauty related vlog together and I’m so happy we finally made it happen!
Since it’s a surprise, I can’t give TOO much away, but I did want to share with you the look I created for this project, specifically with lights and cameras in mind. I’m sure at some point in your life, you might find yourself in front of a camera, so here are a few little tricks I pulled together to try to look my best.
I am wearing a fair amount of tinted moisturizer, concealer and powder here, since I know cameras these days are all HD and pick up pretty much everything you’d prefer pixelated. I might argue that cake face MIGHT be acceptable if you’re going to be in front of a camera. My brows are filled in here because I know they really frame the face and play a crucial part in facial expressions, which is important for me because I could almost communicate all my thoughts using only my face, haha! Next, aside from creating (at least) an illusion of an even complexion and framed face, bronzer and blush do a lot to shape the definition of the face, and bring that pop of color that makes you look more lively! Any time there’s a strong light on you (think of a stage), it usually helps to add a little more blush and bronzer than you would in real life, since the light can wash you out. That’s what I did here, and you’ll see it doesn’t look too dramatic, which is good.
Then the finishing touches like a winged eyeliner on a neutral/smokey eye to accentuate the shape and give the appearance of thicker eyelashes and slightly wider/bigger eyes, and a nice berry-ish mauve to give my lips some color. Voila! A camera ready face!
Get ready world, TRACEinthePLACE and ROSENDALE are coming for you!
