Sol Makeup – Get Ready With Me!

Today, I did this Video Assignment where the prompt was:

“Record yourself getting ready! Whether it be how you get ready for your day, ready for bed, ready for an event, makeup look, etc. See if you can edit the video to speed through parts that may take a second (i.e. washing your face, brushing your teeth…) and create a voice over of the process. For inspiration, look up any ‘Get ready with me’ video on YouTube! Have fun with it, maybe even make a (tasteful) parody version.”

So I decided, of course I’m going to do makeup!

I actually did three different looks and filmed it yesterday . . . and then accidentally deleted it when it didn’t save right . . . and lost everything so I got really mad . . . so this is actually my second time doing this video assignment!

Anyways, here is my video!

The video is messy, I cut out the majority of it because I ended up covering up what I was doing with my hand, BUT! I did it! I kept everything sped up too because it can be miserably slow . . . makeup is a tedious process, let me tell you.

Also, editing this was nightmareish. I have no idea how makeup social media influencers decide what they want in the video and especially those who make TikToks or Instagrams that are just 1 minute . . . I skipped so many stuff!! How do they do it and include everything!! Even if you cut out the entire process of a step, it feels weird . . . huge kudos to them for that though (in another life I am a social media makeup influencer but in this life I am not).

If you want a list of all of my makeup that I used in this (whether included or not), here it is:

  • Elf Blemish Control Face Primer w/ salicylic acid
  • Colourpop Pretty Fresh pressed face powder (shade fair 1)
  • Fenty Beauty Match Stix Contour (shade amber 01)
  • NYX Micro Brow Pencil (shape taupe)
  • NYX Retractable Eye Liner (shade white)
  • NYX Jumbo Multi-Use Face Stick
  • Tarte Tartelette tubing mascara
  • NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer (shade light 1 chantilly)
  • NYX Epic Wear Waterproof Eye & Body Liquid Liner (shade white)
  • Morphe x Nyane Fierce Fairytale Palette (Eyeshadow Colors: Gyoza)
  • Morphe x Abby Roberts Bittersweet Like Honey Palette (Eyeshadow Colors: Solar, Spicy, Vivienne, LA Vibez; Blush Colors: Hot Sauce, Pink Champagne)
  • Juvia’s Place The Nubian Glow Palette (Eyeshadow Colors: Gold shade mid bottom, has no name?!?!)
  • Elf Dewy Coconut Setting Mist

Isn’t that fun..

Anyways, I filmed this on my phone (iPhone 15 Pro) and edited it on iMovie because it took too long to try to send to my laptop to edit through OpenShot. I didn’t have any trouble with iMovie, though. It was a fairly easy application to use.

I’m not sure what else to say that I haven’t said here or in the video. I think it’d be interesting to see other Sol-inspired makeup (maybe I am just a lover of sun-related aesthetics and need to take a breather but this makes me so excited) so maybe I will continue to do more Sol makeup! Very obviously, this makeup would look very different on them, because I am about as pale as my hoodie in the video, but I’m actually working on drawing Sol a little bit (my other assignment that I’m doing is the animatic one . . . which is taking a while, but surprise for more Sol features soon!)

Thank you for reading and watching đŸ™‚ I hope you have a good day or night!
