makeup for filming

Makeup Tips For Youtube Videos

When creating video content we can get really self conscious about how we look and what people will say about us.  You start to question yourself about your appearance!  

Am I wearing the right clothes?

Is my hair done right?

Does my makeup look good?

One of the ways I boost my self confidence on camera is having a Go-To makeup routine that I do myself!  That's right, no professional makeup for me!

Now the makeup routine I have for filming isn't my "everyday makeup" because lets be honest, my every day makeup is NO MAKEUP!  But when the time comes to film my videos I put effort into my makeup.  

I understand as a solopreneur, side hustler, mom, business owner, etc. we don't have a lot of time to mess with our makeup.  That's why I really advocate batching filming your videos.  This way you only have to do your hair and makeup one day a month!  

But today I wanted to show you the exact products I use and how I do my makeup for my videos.  It's not a super long process, maybe 30 - 40 minutes to do my makeup for filming.

Check out the video below!

Key Take Aways:

  • Lighting will wash out your skin color so go a little heavier with your makeup
  • Having a nice lip color just makes you pop on video
  • If you are a guy look into buying some pressed powder to avoid any shiney-ness on camera
  • Make it your own process and something you are comfortable with!

Next Steps:

  • Let me know what makeup you struggle with most OR what are some of your favorite makeup products in the comments section below
  • Get started with your first video by stealing my exact video script template I use for every single video!  It helps me stay on track in my video and makes filming easier because I already know what I'm going to say!
