Apologies for some awkward moments (mostly where I can’t see what I’m doing and accidentally apply makeup like a 6yr old), and being out of focus for half the video- still trying to get used to my camera set up. It’s the second time I’ve made a video with my Canon 60D, and although I love this camera to bits staying in sharp focus is still challenge.
So much fun to shoot though! Hope you enjoy the video, and any feedback will be very much appreciated.

Finally got my act together and filmed a makeup video for all those who have requested it over the last year or so. I’m still getting used to the settings so I decided to start with a super simple look and minimal chatter (I should NEVER be allowed to talk on camera. SO AWKWARD.)
Also- I only just discovered that my Canon 60D does not have autofocus function in video mode- so if I have a look of intense concentration on my face, it’s because I have 1 inch of wriggle room outside of which my face is totally blurry. Oh the pain of being a noob.

I youtubed again- this time I ventured out of my normal beauty blogging comfort zone and did an outfit vlog, for better or worse! I had fun making this video and I think I’ll continue to do these ‘OOTD’ posts, it seems to be an appropriate outlet for squee-ing about clothing purchases (I don’t tend to do this in real life).

I filmed, edited, and uploaded my first ever YouTube video this afternoon. I’m not sure whether I’ll ever get used to seeing myself on camera; but that aside, it was fun!
There are a few things I still need to figure out- like why the colour is totally distorted after it uploaded (everything now has a pink tinge to it) and why the image becomes pixelated sometimes. It was totally fine when I viewed it on iMovie. Any ideas?
The makeup I’m wearing in the video will be listed on an upcoming FOTD post featuring Illamasqua Human Fundamentalism collection.Posted by myfunnyvalentine on Apr 15th, 2012 in YouTube | 45870 comments.
