Thanks to a viewer, Janet, for emailing me a link of this short news feature in the Sydney Morning Herald. It's a short video featuring myself and some other Youtube beauty videographers, talking about the popularity of online makeup videos. Here is the link:

They have used a clip of my Haifa Wehbe video tutorial in the news story, as well as some clips of other popular videos from other users. Kind of cool, but what's with the utterly judgemental tone of the journalist? "Let's hope we don't all walk around looking like this!" My god lady, lighten up! Sounds like a classic line coming from someone who probably ascribes to the Bobbi Brown makeup philosophy. Yeeesh!
Also, this article is really too short to shed light on really anything of substance - watching that video makes me really wonder about the journalistic capability of the reporter. What on earth was the point of that video? The gist I understood was, makeup videos are popular and sometimes the person will hold up a camera to the lens. Wow. Thanks for the enlightenment and your profound understanding of the online makeup community! Good job, mainstream media.
