Tag: My Makeup Story

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 :)

    @Rachel I won’t start working on the singing channel again till I’ve finished uni (next year). Right now I need to focus on my studies and when I’ve finished I’ll finally be able to get back to music :)

    Klaire, you are really amazing at your skill as an artist, truly you are. Your artist skills are breathe taking as well as your make-up tutorials. You make it look flawless. And the sheer amount of creative ideas you’ve came up with, some I never even knew you could do with make-up, it opened my eyes and inspired me. I love make-up and using colors to enhance my eyes to really pop. Also your artististry is quite astounding. I’ve been subscribed to your channel for over a year or so now and your channels are the first few I look forward to watching. Always excited to see what you present in your videos, so as a fan, thank you for inspiring me to try new ideas with make-up. Also I checked out the 2 channels that inspired you and loved them of course and subscribed and on BeautyArtStudio’s “Imagination” video (as above) I complimented you both on your make-up skills, this was my comment: “Wow amazing inspiration for make-up artistry, referred by Ms. Klaire de Lys’ channel. Just subscribed to yours now. I love how both you & Ms. Klaire de Lys use different techniques for makeup, not the typical boring day to day makeup, but more artistical makeup masterpieces. As women our faces are like blank canvases, make-up creates beauty, wonder, and awe inspiring masterpieces that captivates the audience (everyone else).”
