Colourism, Ignorant Netizens and Simply Dumb YouTube Users

Just drawing your attention to one of my recent YouTube videos.

Do leave a comment about your thoughts on the matter…

More YouTube Videos… I Vlog Now!

The demonetisation of YouTubers with less than 1000 subscribers and 4000 hours kind of took me by surprise. The pittance I was making off Adsense didn’t even accumulate enough to cash in… Oh well, all is not lost. I am working on getting my channel remonetised and longer videos tend to get longer views. Vlogs were the answer!

I have posted three vlogs so far and I must say, I’m loving putting these together.

And also, I am contradicting myself. WHY? Read this post –> https://fiercepaint.wordpress.com/2017/09/25/5-reasons-why-ill-never-be-a-popular-beauty-youtuber/

So here they are; my three vlogs. Ordered from latest to oldest.

Another YouTube Video (8th)

It actually includes a dupe I’ve presented on FiercePaint.

Past dupe video;

Dupe 1 (link here)

Dupe 2 (link here)

Dupe 3 (link here)

I used Dupe 3 in the video.

[UPDATE] Dupe 1 and 2 are not on the video because both the dupes are not exactly available at the drugstores in Malaysia anymore. Dupe 1 has been replaced and I am yet to test the new range out. Dupe 2 is a brand that is no longer available here.

YouTube Video Version of My Top Post

My latest YouTube video is based on my most viewed post on FiercePaint (at over 12 thousand views!).

My Top 5 Most Affordable Drugstore Makeup Brands in Malaysia (link here).

This has been long in the works and I kept editing it a little bit every now and then. It has finally seen fruition!

So, here’s the video version of it!

Enjoy!

My Entry for the First Ever NYX Face Awards Malaysia!

So I have decided, I’d give this a shot. A makeup video for the first ever NYX Face Awards Malaysia.

If you don’t know the NYX Face Awards, just YouTube it. You’ll understand immediately.

Top 30 will be picked by judges but the top 15 and top 6 are solely via public voting. So if I do get to the next level, HELPPPPPP MEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I guess that is all there is to explain.

Here’s my entrance video!

Thanks for watching.

Perhaps I’d make more YouTube videos. Kind of got the hang of editing already.

5 Types of Beauty YouTuber Videos I Hate

I commonly do these posts when things get a little monotonous and/or product heavy on FiercePaint. Seems like over the past month and half or so, it has been too much about products. So here we go!

Enjoy!

I am subscribed to 363 channels on YouTube and they are predominantly beauty YouTubers. So I feel like I’ve seen my fair share of beauty videos. I have been watching YouTube since 2007, and after following beauty videos rather actively since 2012, I am really, REALLY sick of some type of videos. Especially by beauty YouTubers.

I have already expressed my disdain over some beauty “YouTuberisms” (if you would indulge me with that word) in a previous post. Should you want a laugh or a reality check, you can take a look (link here).

Let’s, as I usually do, go from the least annoying to the most.

#5 Sneaking in paid reviews

“…………..so in this tutorial, I’ll be using the brand X, miracle product Y…………………………”

Seriously, we KNOW you’re being paid to mention and use it. Why the pretense????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I prefer someone disclose that it is a paid review and be upfront about it. Worse still, if you keep doing it video after video! Honestly, we’re not dumb! Uggghhh!!!

#4 Eye makeup tutorials that are filmed about a kilometer away from the camera (oh, for those of you, unaware of the metric system, it is approximately 0.6214 miles).

An eye makeup tutorial NEEDS to be shot up close to show viewers how it is properly done. It’s not that difficult, unless of course you’re insecure of your capacity to properly blend out eyeshadow! In which case, just stick to reviews darling!

#3 Makeup channel with absolutely no variety

This is actually sad… Formulaic makeup videos with the same kind of makeup looks. Even sadder is when they claim to change up their look but end up with a shade of darker lipstick with everything else almost copied from their previous video. There are SO many halo eyes tutorials out there, why would you want 10 halo eyes makeup tutorials on your channel??? WHY???????

#2 Videos with unnecessarily long intros of just poses

Here’s where I actually start to get angry! 5 seconds of 5 of your poses is alright… 124853024803 poses at the beginning of your video is FUCKING STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously! I get it! It’s a properly executed smokey eye, with pink cut crease, double winged, red polka dot, unicorn land, ice cream, witchcraft level, ultimate perfection fantasy look! I GET IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get on with the damn tutorial already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#1 I’m back videos

Just imagine me rolling my eyes now… A long, absolutely disgusted eye roll.

If you can’t upload, don’t, and just pick up where you left off. Do a Q&A video, a GRWM or something of that manner so you can talk about your absence. In fact it was a recent, “I’m back” (yes, you should totally imagine me holding up air quote and gesturing it really slowly with eyebrows raised to my hairline) video that prompted this entire post!

You see, there’s something on top of it that totally pisses me off (yes, more than the video itself!!!); the reasons. Uggghhhh!!!!!!!

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but I had some things going on the past couple of months, life, relationships…

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but I was SOOOOO busy the past couple of months.

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but I chipped my nail and it took me three whole months to deal with it!!!!!!!!!!

Uhm, I’m so sorry guys but my mascara ran out and I was looking for one for the past 6 months!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

PS: If you take offense, then that is your problem, not mine! Have a nice day!!!

3rd YouTube Video

So to preface this, I joined a competition by The Body Shop Malaysia last year and was chosen as one of the three winners. The contest was inspired by Nikkietutorials’ The Power of Makeup video. It was an Instagram competition so you only needed to upload a picture.

Again, I feel I need to repeat this…

Odissi dancing is sacred to me, and in no way am I doing this to take advantage or exploit the art of Indian classical dance makeup. It is also not my intention whatsoever to disrespect the art form in any way, shape or form. If you are a dance purist reading this, let me tell you I value and love odissi like I love God Himself. I am treating this post as respectfully as I can and I do hope that no offense is taken.

Here was my entry;

Screenshot_2015-11-19-19-52-23-16

I even wrote an entire post on it (link here).

Ever since I posted my second YouTube video I already had the idea for my third video. I decided to film this Power of Makeup post.

So I did!

And here it is! My third YouTube video…

Thank you all for your continued support!

From the bottom of my heart!!!

Beauty YouTuber Phrases I am Absolutely Sick of!

You know what, let’s get a little messy!

This post is going to inevitably annoy and offend some people.

As positive a person I portray on FiercePaint, I am a little bit of a cynic in real life (or I’d like to believe so).

So many beauty guru “YouTuberisms” (did I just create a word there??) irks me to no end that I could create a top 100 list but these are the top 5 that irks me the most!

This is in order of least annoying to please STFU!

I’m not sure exactly how much it costs, I’ll leave it in the description box down below!

Really………, really??

Why wouldn’t you be prepared when you know you’d be filming a video??? SERIOUSLY???

I’m sorry I’ve not been uploading for a long time but I’ve been really busy.

No darling! You just didn’t prioritise. Don’t make promises to upload regularly if you can’t!

I’m so bad at……….

My number 1 most annoying thing about beauty YouTubers is when they are doing tutorials on something and they claim to be bad at it!!! W-T-F!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*high pitch bubbly voice*

“Oh my God, you guys, please pray for me, I am so bad at doing the winged liner, like seriously!”

B**CH even if you ARE bad at it, don’t freaking say it and make yourself look dumb!

I mean really??!!!!!!!!!!
