I'm back with another Celebrity Inspired tutorial. Today's look was inspired by Kendra, the E Television reality star. I received some new grayish blush contacts to test out and thought that Kendra's look would work great with them. This is actually a really wearable look for a night out. It's a neutral smokey eye that actually works with a lot of skin tones. It's great for a date night or girls night out.

This is actually my first video using my new Camcorder and Software. I was really nervous because my laptop is about 3 years old...which basically means, too old to handle HD video and advanced editing software, lol. It was really hard to edit this video because it played really choppy on my laptop, and on top of that this editing software was intense! I'm still experimenting with lighting, editing, and colors so please be patient with me. I had to correct the color of the video because it filmed kind of dark...that's why the video color might look a little off. However, I like how the clarity is super clear. I don't have to worry about light balance issues and my video turning out all dark anytime I went anywhere close to the digital camera...that used to drive me crazy before! Also the editing software is definitely a lot better...hopefully I'll be able to master it over time.
For those wondering, I purchased the camcorder and software myself, definitely not free! It took me a while to research what I wanted to get, but after reading a lot of reviews I finally decided. I purchased both at Best Buy just in case I needed to easily return it. It's the Canon Vixia Hf200 and the Vegas Movie Studio 9 Platinum Pro Pack. In the past I was using the Kodak M1033 Digital Camera and Windows Movie Maker. I listened to a lot of my viewers' feedback about bad video quality and decided to upgrade (thank goodness for my tax refund). I'm actually looking into getting a new laptop this weekend so that I can better edit my videos...gulp more money, lol! But it's definitely worth it.
