Have you ever been into a hobby and end up one day knee deep in everything and anything you can possibly find about that subject? I had that happen to me this past week. Yes- I found my self engrossed in video tutorials on YouTube about... Makeup.
Now, as I watched these fascinating short clips, I realized there is an abundance of creativity that can inspire anyone who watches! I can't even begin to count the obsessed hours I have spent trying to get my "Fix" for makeup video tutorials. There are many things that are used for inspiration for the tutorials. Comic book Hero's, Contemporary Art, Holiday's, Celebrity's, Old Hollywood, Time periods, How to's, 101's, Skin care regimen, Horoscopes- anything you see that inspires you- make you own re creation using makeup!
Lately, I have had the desire to build my makeup kit so I can take it on location with me, as well as having just the right shade for that perfect look. There are many colors out there in the world, and since I am going to take from what I see as inspiration, I need the palette to pull from. Right now I have basics, browns, pinks, creams, for your everyday looks and a few colors. I am learning that the intensity is oh so important if you want drama, pop and focus on your eyes. Not all my colors are great quality- (but til I can get what I need I can make do. (: ) I have added a few links to my websites for you to check out, they are bright color related and ones that have given an inspirational look to try and help expand your makeup creativity.
Here are a few links to check out- they are some of the videos that are really inspiring and very creative.
This is a "Pretty Fairy" look done by Makeup Geek
This one is inspired by "SuperMan" by Xsparkage
Makeup by Ren Ren is one I have been following for a while- and she does great work so check out her blog in the link to the right and browse her tutorials. :)
Thanks guys- I hope that you enjoy some these video's as much as me. If you find some that are inspiring to you I'd love to see them- and I would love to see what you come up with that inspires you! Happy Inspiration!
