Halloween 2009 - Requests!


In preparation for Halloween 2009, I've already begun filming Halloween makeup tutorials. My Halloween videos were a huge hit last year; some of them are still my most viewed videos to date. This year I want to make even more! As they take a lot of time to film and prepare, I've started filming them now, and will begin uploading them starting sometime around the end of September and throughout the month of October. This means that if you want to make a request for a particular Halloween look you'd like to see - NOW IS THE TIME! :)


How to make a request:

I've decided to make things a bit more interactive this year. So, I'm asking my viewers to make a video response to this Halloween request video (click for the link) with their ideas. I will only be considering requests from these video responses. This is to make things a bit more fun, to help me get ideas from you all, and to also motivate me to film lots and lots of Halloween looks this year! My Halloween looks are usually very elaborate and take a lot of time to film and edit, so your input will definitely help me along.

Your video could include a slideshow of inspirational pictures of Halloween looks you find online, or you can just talk into the camera with your idea. If you don't have a camera, just make a picture slideshow and add text. You don't absolutely have to film yourself if you're not comfortable with that. (Although visuals of your ideas help me a lot.) I can't promise to do every request of course, but I will be looking through all the response videos to get ideas!

Anyone can make a video! I use Windows Movie Maker which comes installed with all PCs, or you can use iMovie if you're on a Mac. Both programs are free and already installed on your computer, and are easy to use, so there's really no excuse. ;) You can also make a slideshow video really easily at onetruemedia.com it's pretty much foolproof. Happy requesting!

Just to refresh your memory, here are some of my Halloween makeup looks from last year. I also have a Playlist on my Youtube channel for these looks, so make sure you don't request a look that I already did, or that is really similar to one of my other video.


Tim Burton's Corpse Bride
Witch
Princess/Fairy

Ladybug

Vampire

Ventriloquist Doll

  1. Awww, I don't make video's... but MAC did a "cracked doll" look some years back that was really cool. It was innocent looking, with pink makeup.. but there was a black hole in the face with cracks around it.

  11. I think that when it comes to makeup you must be by far may favorite makeup artist on Youtube. You are so inspirational!

    A bit off the topic but you seem to have lost A LOT of weight from last year. You look amazing now! I'm trying to loose weight myself.

    Anyway, can't wait to see what you come up this Hallowe'en.

    Sigh...I don't make videos but I think a cool look would be eyes over the eyelid makeup idea, you know when you close your eyelids another pair of eyes are there to greet everyone!

  15. Alas I don't have a video camera, but I'm hoping you'll still consider a few requests that might be fun for you to try....

    An Egyptian look (Cleopatra or mummy or statue?)
    A Medusa look (think scales and snakeskin!)
    A futuristic look (maybe metallic, robotic, cyborg)
    A butterfly-faery look
    A spiderweb-faery look
    A zombie look

    Can't wait to see what you'll do for 2009!!

    Thanks,
    Albiana

    I don't have a webcam, but I am planning on being Medusa for this year. I have the outfit (tons of snakes and accessories) and thinking about the make-up, I experimented with fishnets as a template for scales. Just an idea to throw out there!
