With the holiday season knocking at the door, it’s once again the time for mirth & merriment and, of course, holiday parties. And parties are all about looking your best with the most glamorous Christmassy makeup. Are you the make-up queen of your bunch who is often asked for help on the right eyeshadow and the perfect pout? Well, why don’t you create a holiday make-up tutorial this time to help your besties. It will make a wonderful Christmas gift for your BFFs from your side.
The post below offers some tips to create a great Christmas party makeup tutorial video.
Set your studio & backdrop
Now, you don’t need to hire an entire studio for your tutorial. The term “studio” here implies some extra space that you can dedicate solely for your recording. You can any day record the tutorial from your bed, but that won’t look exactly professional. So, get a small free space where you can teach and record your makeup tips comfortably.
As it’s about Christmas looks, make sure to glitter up the backdrop to create the perfect holiday feel. You can hang some bells and balls, or else a nice merry Christmas poster will also do.
And, yes, be careful of the lighting. Ring lights will be really cool while shooting a makeup tutorial video.
Get a recording software.
If you don’t have a professional camera for shooting, don’t worry. A recording software will do the job for you. You will have to install it on your Mac, and it will run & record when you demonstrate the makeup tips before the Mac camera. If you are looking for expert suggestions, Movavi Screen Capture Studio will be a good Mac video recorder for you. The state-of-the-art software not only helps with screen recording but also with video editing.
Clean your tools & keep them handy
Don’t waste your time cleaning or searching your brushes when the recording is on. Your video should be short and crisp and only cover the tutorial part. People are extremely busy these days; they value their precious time. Most importantly, your video will lose out on its engagement value if it can’t show meaningful content from the first clip. So, make sure to clean up all your makeup tools before you start your recording. Everything you will need for the tutorial should be within your arm’s reach while shooting the tutorial.
Record audio separately
You will want to give your voiceover to your tutorial video to explain each step you will take while you do the glam holiday makeup. Now, although your screen recording software would record the audio with video, it’s better to record your narration separately. You may not be able to speak fluently while you are drawing an eyeliner or correcting the highlighter. So, take the video & audio parts separately and then blend them during the editing process.
It’s advised to get a short test video of your tutorial before heading into the final big-scale version.
