March is the month for graduation here in the Philippines but because Holy Week started early this year, some were pushed back. I am counting down the days for my big day. This year, APRIL 3 IS THE DAY. I am very much excited to graduate yet I am nervous for unemployment as well.
To prep up my spirits for the big day, I looked for graduation makeup tutorials from local beauty gurus. Just to let you know, I am not really a YouTube watcher. I am more of a blog reader. I have not watched any of their earlier videos so most of them are of my first impressions.
I love Chriselle Sy (Cosmetic Fixation) and how in-depth her makeup tutorials are. I like the way details what kind of brush to use and where to apply it. I like that she tells what colors or shades to use without naming much brands, which I have noticed a lot of YouTube beauty gurus tend to do.
Ana Victorino’s tutorial is more simple than Chriselle’s but with the same in-depth quality. This is the first makeup tutorial I have watched from AV but I am a reader of her blog. Her sweet voice makes it a plus. For some reason her voice reminds me of Michelle Phan.
Lindsay is a former classmate of mine back in elementary. I recently discovered her blog (Makeup by Say Tioco Artillero) last year and since then followed her because I love the idea that she patronizes local products in her blog and how she reaches out to make Tagalog tutorials in her YouTube channel. I also enjoy looking at her FOTD. She has made three different videos to reach out to her viewers: for high-end, for Tagalog speaking, and for budget.
I prefer her makeup look here than the earlier video.
I think she put in too much foundation in this video but her choices of products were interesting. I can’t wait to read her reviews on the products.
I recently discovered Noe Mae Villa-Gee (Color is My Weapon) while I was searching for YouTube videos on a graduation day makeup tutorial. I loved her video. With the way she talks in her video it made me feel I was in a makeup workshop or a makeup talk show.
Do you have a D-Day this year?
