New Lighting Additions + YouTube
If you haven't been up to date on this little blog of mine recently, then you wouldn't have seen the weekly videos I've been posting. After years of watching YouTube videos from gurus like ViviannaDoesMakeup, ICovetThee, Tanya Burr, Zoella, and Pixiwoo, I finally took the plunge and started my own channel. YouTube is an amazing website that allows normal people like me to create videos and share them with the online world. It sounds scary at first, but the concept is absolutely amazing. YouTube has started the careers of many different vloggers and has turned them into full fledged business people with brands and clothing collections, beauty sets, and tv shows that they wouldn't have been involved with without the online sharing site. I've been obsessed with beauty tutorials and fashion videos for the longest time when I finally decided to make my own videos.
I've been accumulating photography and video equipment over the past 6 months including the Canon Rebel t3i dslr, Canon tripod, and this new light set that I'm so excited about. The softbox light sets I was looking at for a while were over $300 and for a full time student like me, that's a lot of money to spend on a hobby. After deleting the softbox set from my Amazon cart, I decided to look at the more budget friendly options. The first set that stood out to me was the LimoStudio Portrait Studio 600W Daylight Lighting Kit that included three high quality lights for under $50! The lights are incredible and have really upped the quality of my videos in high definition. YouTube has definitely become one of my favorite past times to create video content and I hope that you all have been enjoying the videos. If you feel so kind, please head over to my channel here and subscribe in order to stay up to date with my weekly beauty tutorials!
