Michelle Phan Spring Hong Kong Demonstration

Monday, January 31, 2011

Everyone loves Michelle Phan (well almost everyone). Regardless if you like Michelle Phan or not you cannot deny her talent and diligence in her passion for art. Behind every successful person there is a little bit of luck involved, how did you think Penicillin was discovered? Before you read on, I must say I am biased because I love Michelle not because of her appearance and not because of her voice, but because of her endurance.  Michelle started as an ordinary college student struggling to get by grueling schoolwork and living on meager allowance, but by chance she started making these videos per her blog fan's requests. Even then, if she was not talented she would not have been able to capture such a wide variety of audience. I personally really admire Michelle as an aspiring artist and a strong female figure.

Making Youtube videos is not an easy job! There is so much that goes into a video. For every minute of a video 10 times as much work was put into preparing it, editing it to posting it. I can say from experience, since I recently started a Youtube beauty channel, that posting an exceptional video is truly like crafting a piece of art. I personally struggled with numerous obstacles, from lighting, to background to equipment and even noise issues.

I have to admit, I do follow and watch Michelle's videos religiously. Whether it is out of curiosity or appreciation for art I can appreciate every minute of her videos because I know how much work was put in in exchange for these videos. Granted yes she is successful now, and she is making money from her viewer's support but how is it any different from buying your favorite artist's new album, or watching your favorite actor's new movie? I cannot stop the comments but I just wanted to express the foolishness of such acts. They are totally unnecessary. Besides, how can anyone become popular and get media attention without a little hatred and negative news?

Enough babbling, I wanted to share with you guys Michelle's recent spring makeup demonstration. The reason I am sharing this video with you is because it took place in Hong Kong!! Yes, if you know me personally you should know that I am from Hong Kong. I was born and raised in Hong Kong, so I anything that has to do with Hong Kong always sparks my interest. This spring look was created by all Lancome products, but of course if you do not HAVE to use these specific products. Enjoy this enchanting spring look!

This has inspired me to film a spring tutorial. Who knows, maybe I will upload one soon. =]
