Before Starting. The "Blank Canvas"
Tish before Makeup or hair styling was done.

A few months ago, I shared a story about makeup.  Makeup: A Purge and Purchase Story was fun to experience, and fun to write about.  I was surprised by the comment thread my makeup questions spurred on my Facebook page.  Quite a few people had opinions, and some joined me on my shopping trip.

This morning I woke up and decided I would do my hair and makeup for my Facebook Live video.  I was announcing the winner of the Scavenger Hunt Contest I had going on all week.  I didn’t just want a “like and share” contest.  I wanted people to follow links to my different areas of expertise, one page for my jewellery making business, Tish’s Treasures, another my Facebook Author page, Tish MacWebber’s Author Facebook Page, and here, on my blog.

People showed interest, but not everyone participated.  Some tried to do all of the steps, and others liked the pages.  I made my first Facebook live videos this week.  I found that the one I made from my personal Facebook page was the one that had the most interaction, so I am learning as I am trying new things.  I have watched them after recording, just to hear what I sounded like, and to learn.  I will keep working on them, as they are another way to reach out to people that might not want to spend their time hunting for different pages.

That being said, at some point in the future, I am going to make the leap from this Blog page to my own website.  That will be a new step for me, outside of my comfort zone.  I want to combine the Bling, Blog, and Books I am creating on to a website.  I will be looking for help to do this, and I know that people in the communities I am involved with in my social media circles will point me in the right direction so I can figure it all out.  I am doing all of the work myself, since this page launched for the second time.  I had help at the start and took over when I was ready to take the reins.  It has been a bumpy ride at times, but so much fun.

Now for the makeup.  I am going to share a series of selfies I took this morning while getting ready for my video shoot.  That sounds bigger than it was.  It was less than five minutes long.  I am still not used to how things are flipped on the laptop.  It is another thing to work at until I am great at it.

This happens to be the second tube of mascara I have tried.  I miss my wonder-curl mascara, they don’t make it anymore.  I will give them each another try before blogging my thoughts.  I also tried a new eye makeup remover.  I have not found one that completely cleans mascara from my lashes, ever.  Any tips will be appreciated with this in mind.  I asked about this today on my personal Facebook page, and it became quite a thread.  I am always happy to see another person’s point of view.  😉

  1. How pretty is that face? Great job on hair and makeup. I know I always feel better when I’m made-up.

    1. Thank you, Cynthia! It is a rare day indeed when I manage to get both my hair and makeup done, but once in a while, I feel like it. Other times, there is an occasion where it is deemed necessary. On those days it is good to have already had the trial run!

    1. Thank you. I had recently purged my makeup, and I have yet to try a new red lipstick. I am collecting more points, so I will pick one soon! The lipstick in the pic is NYX soft matte lip cream in Ibiza. The free lip gloss I got the same day was Bourjois Paris BB Gloss 5 in 1 Fresh glow, protective, moisturizing smoothing, crystal shine in colour 02. When I was out shopping for Haloween, I snagged a NYX Lip Lingere 20 French Maid. I like it, but have to wear the right colour top, or do my makeup for my whole face to pull it off. 🙂 When I go lipstick shopping again, I will share it in the next blog story.
