Beauty Blogging

13 May

Back in the days where there weren’t as many beauty bloggers as today reviews used to be so in a sense ‘pure’.

People wrote honest reviews and would suggest great things for other people through the internet. All of that has now changed and in my view for the most part worse. Bloggers are now not so honest and pure as they were just 5 years ago.

Times sure has changed.

Now with Youtube at the forefront for beauty bloggers many bloggers are getting free products from companies and in turn for the free products are then asked to review their products in a “positive light”.

A while back there was an issue with a company’s products not being shown in a positive light. This incident involved beauty vlogger JuicyTuesday (a.k.a. Teresa) who recieved free clothing from Hot Miami Styles to try and review. Her review of some of the clothing sent were not so positive and the company asked her to take down the not so positive video. Here is her response:

And to be honest, I am glad that Teresa filmed this video because it does really show that she is sincere about her reviews and is not afraid of rebuttal from the other side.

I feel like I can’t watch product reviews anymore because you don’t know if the person is being sponsored ‘under the table’. I feel very disappointed in beauty bloggers on Youtube because they are young which means that they are not as knowledgable about the corrupted society that we live in. Still, I support these young bloggers for putting themselves out there and not being afraid to take criticism from anonymous people.

Planning + Studying + Working on a video

7 Mar

Oh… a post so late at night… I should be studying for my Japanese midterm tomorrow but I got so off-track!

Anyways… I finally got an Youtube idea going on through my head and since your first video that you put up on Youtube is very important I decided to start putting together a foundation video. Now there are lots of how to put on your foundation on Youtube already so I really shouldn’t be doing that sort of thing but thing is those people only show one way of many. So I decided to put together a makeup basic foundation routine based on what sort of sources an average person has and which technique is fast or requires some sort  of skills. Not going to go much in depth but I’m going to try to make it as professional as possible so it’s going to take some time…. if I calculate right then it should take about a month to put up that video. Yeah… a month and I’m not going to start filming just yet mainly because I just don’t have time… I now have respects for those people on Youtube who put up a video like everyday… crazy!!

Anyways… the photo of the day…

The question of the day is…  Am I winking or am I blinking?

Future Plans

30 Nov


So this is just an update for my future reference.
After my exams are done which is Dec 14 I am planning to make a bunch of videos and post them up on Youtube and other things as well. Some of the videos that I hope to make are How to make your own tinted moisterizer, contouring, makeup looks, cheap holiday gift-wrapping ideas and maybe more but I want to update this blog everyday. As I can’t update my physical book everyday maybe I’ll post up photos of the physical book online as well.

As for the blog I will be able to write in more everytime and maybe one time there will be an essay. ^_^ Things that I plan to do over the winter break is updating my book and blog for sure everyday if I can, reading the samurai traditions textbook and preparing a pop culture and samurai traditions lecture for the upcoming new year, cleaning my room (that will take a day for sure), preparing for my new courses for the winter, finish sewing up the pencil cases that have been waiting since the summer. There will be a lot of sewing for sure, I have to finish everything or else I won’t get it done.

Later, there will be an update on how my day went and maybe a photo or two. I’m glad that I’ve stolen my dad’s Sony camera… maybe when I have a part-time job in the summer I’ll get one.

So that is it on the future plans… doing my best for the finals!!
