On Friday i was in London filming two Get The Look videos with Babyliss for their Youtube channel! On the day i was joined by the lovely Gem from From Gem With Love who was also filming two looks of her own and after our breakfast (a yummy sausage sandwich with a big cup of tea) we sat down with Jamiee from MakeuptArt to have our faces made pretty for the cameras!
I got a stunning smokey eye look with chiseled cheek bones and pale lips which i absolutely LOVED! I don’t often go mad with the old eyeshadow but it’s certainly something i’ll be trying after seeing how easy Jamiee made it look. Without giving too much away my first look was a sleek and straight pony with some simple hair barrettes and the second was an incredible textured top knot – such a striking look and both created by the very talented Adam Reed!
It was pretty nerve-wracking at first being surrounded by a room full of people, three cameras and enough lights to rival Blackpool illuminations, but our director was so kind and Adam was incredibly professional that it flew by and before we knew it it was time for lunch! After a yummy plateful we sat down to film our second looks and before you could say ‘ACTION’ that was it! A celebratory glass of fizz later the lights were being taken down, cameras were being packed away and we all headed off back home leaving the television screens and studio behind us.
It really was the perfect way to round off the biggest year for me and my blog and i look forward to doing more work like this in the future because it was so fun!
Which is your favourite look – the simple updo, or the textured top knot?
