Someone mentioned on my Facebook that I should do the “My Makeup Story” tag and seeing as people keep asking me how I got started on You Tube I figured it would be a good one to do.
The funny thing is that I didn’t start on You Tube doing makeup. I actually started on You Tube with a singing channel around 2 years ago, as singing has always been something I enjoyed and hoped to persue as a career once I’d finished school.
Lol. It’s actually quite funny watching that first video I uploaded, I was so nervous!!
My legs were shaking so badly, and that quavering in my voice when I was singing, yea, that’s because I was shaking. Now I’ve deleted nearly all the videos on that Klairedelys channel, I only kept the first video up because of nostalgia and so that I can use it as a motivation video to improve.
I only ended up getting into makeup after I watched Panacea81‘s videos and BeautyArtStudio’s, I suddenly realized that makeup could be artistic and that really appealed to me. Even then I had no intention of going into makeup, it was just something I enjoyed doing in my spare time and it helped me develop a bit of an alter-ego which was more confident than my quiet nervous other half.
It was only after I uploaded a song cover on my singing channel(wearing a makeup look I cane up with) and got a ton of requests to do a tutorial then I started doing makeup tutorials.
At first I uploaded them on my singing channel but I felt it was a bit unfair on my subscribers who had subscribed to hear my awful covers, and not makeup tutorials.
So I finally decided to create a second channel just for makeup and ended up calling it KlairedelysArt, as a bit of a tribute to the fact that BeautyArtStudio was my biggest makeup inspiration.
And since then makeup has become another big passion of mine. I’m still not sure sure if I want to pursue makeup professionally since music will always go first for me, but then again I don’t like to plan things like that. I prefer to just see how things go and enjoy the ride :)
