“Where can I find your makeup tutorial videos?”
That would be the most popular question I’ve received in my blogging career.
Each time, I’ve had to politely reply that I do not have any, simply because I am unable to handle the nurturing of another social media channel on top of what I currently manage – Blog, Instagram, Facebook.
Truth is -- I AM SHY. SHY. SHY. No, really! You can't say I'm a natural at this. XD
Perhaps I’ve grown older and my hide has become thicker HAHAHA, and but also since I’ve received a lot of requests on how I’ve been taking care of my skin and the products I use to cover my blemises after the terrible facial scare, that I decided,
"If not now,
So I made the first step forward and here’s my VERY FIRST MAKEUP TUTORIAL ON VIDEO!
Excuse me if my presentation looks too amateur-ish, I tried not to look too much at my script but I kept forgetting my lines (yes, I composed a SCRIPT). And my eyes kept darting all over the place. @_@ LOL!
Alright, now enjoy! 😀
Apart from the updates about my recovery journey from the facial incident, I also wrote a detailed post on my updated current skincare regime.
Well, apart from wanting to take a baby step forward to start appearing in moving visual images, another reason I did this was because I feel strongly for people who suffer from skin conditions like eczema, melasma, rosacea, and psoriasis. I HAVE THEM TOO. Not all at once and not all of them - thankfully - but I do suffer from a few and understand how they (YOU) feel.
Of course, this post is not only for people who suffer from skin conditions, it is also for those who do not.
I used to literally have goosebumps when I see people with a skin condition. I’d think to myself ‘Why doesn’t she see a skin doctor?’, ‘Why would anyone leave the house like that?’.
But I have learnt there could be plenty of reasons why people look… well, different. Remember that people with skin conditions didn’t chose to look like that, they were born this way.
Although the severity of a skin condition changes over time, it is a lifelong condition. A lack of public understanding about skin conditions causes many sufferers to feel isolated and ostracized. If you do a search on the Internet, there are many home remedies, but these are often not proven so just be wary of them. I would advise you to seek professional help, like I did.
Some Skin Conditions
The skin conditions I've shown here are NOT CONTAGIOUS and sufferers CAN lead fulfilling lives. We just need to be more understanding and supportive and make them feel more welcome in society.
Makeup Tip: Just because you have a skin condition doesn’t mean that you should stay completely away from makeup. Don’t be afraid to try new things, but be more aware of what we put on our face and body. Check the ingredient list, expiry date and if you can, test it on other parts of your body first.
So remember, you CAN be beautiful even with a skin condition. 🙂
I hope you found this tutorial useful, especially on how to conceal blemishes! Thanks for watching! (YAY! Finally I can say this!)
I'm glad there's a community support program for psoriasis patients to seek treatment and emotional and moral support. You can find more information on psoriasis at Freedom 360, and eczema at National Skin Centre.
