Week 10

Simple, Everyday Makeup

For my third and last video assignment for the week, I decided to do the Show Me How! assignment (3 stars), which prompts me to time lapse anything. One of the examples was how someone does their makeup, and I thought–since I already have to do a formal video for something else–I figured I might as well kill two birds with one stone by showing how I do my makeup, and with my makeup already on, I could film my other video! Especially, considering the situation we’re all in, I don’t have any other reason to wear makeup since I’m not going outside.

For a long time I refused to wear makeup, and yes I was one of those people who rolled their eyes at people who wore it every day (especially heavy makeup), wondering why they’d bother making time for it. However, during my time in Japan, not only did I start getting into dressing up, but I also got into wearing makeup more regularly. So I thought I’d show how I do my simple, everyday makeup.

When I made this video, there was a hyper lapse option in my camera, but after filming, I didn’t realize how short and fast it actually turned out. However, I didn’t want to have to take off my makeup and redo it, so when I edited the video, I slowed it down to 25% speed. In the background, I played one of my favorite songs (had to insert a bit of my k-pop nerd self).
