Hey everyone! I wanted to discuss some updates on The Beautynerd in the coming year. I mostly product reviews on the blog, which will still be the case since I love to do reviews. However, as you might have read in my Beautyblogger Resolutions for 2016, I’m planning to do a few new things on the blog. I’m happy to show you what I’m currently planning: Youtube Video’s, Sample Card Swatches and Videogame Inspired Looks.
The most important thing that I want to try out is making Youtube Videos. I’ve tried to film one recently, and I found out that I’m absolutely horrible in making these. I don’t feel comfortable yet (and don’t look comfortable either) talking to a camera and since I’m a perfectionist, I keep stopping in between sentences if I’m not satisfied. I do feel like I’m getting used to it though!
I also have no idea how to edit videos, I have seen a couple of video editing programs which I’m going to try out as soon as I have a new laptop. I’ve purchased one recently but unfortunately, that one didn’t work out so I had to send it back.
On my Youtube Channel, I’m planning to do favorite videos and tag videos (both make-up and videogame related). I won’t be doing tutorials just yet, since I think there are many talented girls who can show it way better than me, and I don’t have any right lighting and editing skills to do so, maybe this will be a goal for 2017 (if I can make videos to begin with for this year!).
The next thing on the list is Sample Card Swatches. I’m planning to buy less make-up this year, which is not really getting less at the moment. But anyways, I was looking through my stash and I found out that I have so many Make-up Samples that I never used, from lipstick sample cards, eyeshadow sample cards to miniature mascara’s. Then I thought that this would be a great opportunity for creating a new type of review. I might not be able to discuss the packaging of the product (unless I already own a full-sized product) but I can discuss the most important thing, the product itself. After using the sample, I can let you know if I would buy the full-sized product myself or skip it!
Last but not least, I want to incorporate more Videogame subjects on my blog. I did think of doing Videogame reviews, but those are completely different compared to Make-up reviews. I think those are much more difficult and take so much more time, which I don’t have. Instead, I was thinking on doing Make-up Looks inspired by Videogames. This could be inspired by a character or a Videogame itself. This isn’t meant to look like a Videogame Character for cosplays, but purely inspirational and more artistic. I will definitely go more in depth about the character or Videogame during these posts.
I hope that you feel excited about these updates. Let me know if you have any suggestions on these subjects or if you want to see something else on the blog!
