My Easy Go-To Flawless Complexion


If you've been reading my blog for a while, you would know I have been meaning to upload a video for a long time now! I've made a few videos in the past, however I didn't uploaded them due to not being completely satisfied with the results, or never finished editing it. I wanted to film a video that I knew I would want to upload and finish, one that didn't overwhelm me in terms of editing, etc. I decided as my first video I would do my simple go-to flawless complexion. One that I like to do on days/mornings I am in a rush, whilst using minimal amounts of products. The main focus of this look is creating a dewy, lit within glow.

I applied only one layer of foundation as I usually go for a light to medium coverage. I still like to have a few imperfections showing through, as long as my complexion is even.

I was quite surprised how fast I was able to edit this video on iMovie, from adding captions to cut outs as well as the speed process. I was so pleased at how I managed to figure out how to edit this video. It didn't take very long for me to get the swing of things. Overall, this video took me less than 30 minutes to edit, which I am very happy about. Usually, if I have more time in the morning I would do a few touch ups and would perfect a few more areas of my face. Nonetheless, I am extremely happy with how it turned out.

This is the very first video I have filmed properly so it isn't the best, please be kind! I am extremely nervous to upload this. I hope you all enjoy watching it, and do let me know if you would like me to continue filming videos and if you have any request you'd like me to do. For my next video I want to incorporate talking as well as a more detailed tutorial and mixing in some lifestyle (makeup collection, etc).

Throughout the video you will see each product I use, however I have added it below as well as extra information for easier reference.
