After receiving the news of being selected as a Malaysian Finalist – to compete for the 2 covetted spots and represent Malaysia, we were once again invited for a gathering & briefing.
Faa Firds & Emily Quak, famous Malaysian Beauty Youtube bloggers made an appearance again! And this time, they even shared their failures and how we can pick ourselves up and learn from mistakes, and also how they handle negative feedbacks when it comes their way.
It was quite nice to learn that even the successful bloggers have it rough sometimes, and that is no reason to stay down.
We also got another session from a Youtube speaker which this time gave us alot more in-depth knowledge on how to become a successful youtube blogger (**Leave me a comment if the information interest you, and I will make a post on it!**), some stuff I have not even heard of before. Good to know the if I want to make my Youtube channel more successful.
We also had a on-the-spot (Hackathon) challenge of taking off our makeup and putting it back on in 30 mins! So stressful for me that I kept poking my eyes with my eyeliner, and had red eyes after that! No photo of that as evidence, luckily.
The table for our on the spot Hackathon Challenge in 30 mins, as you can see, my many bags of beauty products. I brought everything! Just in case.
They served much better food this time around, but it was not enough for everyone, and alot of us were super hungry after the briefing had ended.
We also had a professional makeup artist (Khir Khalid) come teach us some tips & tricks we can use for our upcoming challenge!
Didn’t manage to get a good photo of him as I was concentrating too much on what he was demonstrating.
OK, now for the exciting part! At the end of the gathering, we were finally briefed on our upcoming challenge!
Our second challenge was to make another 2 youtube videos!
- Another Unboxing video of the goodies we got from Youtube & SKII.
- Next one is a NO-MAKEUP Makeup tutorial!
My Second UNBOXING VIDEO for Beauty Bound Asia
We got a YouTube T-shirt together with our Goodie bag before leaving! So I just had to put it on for the video. Doesn’t it look amazingggggg??
And Look at the second pile of LOOT I got!
And my NO-MAKEUP makeup video submission
I CLONED myself for this video! Haha, feeling like I needed to make an impression, I decided to bring out my rusty editing skills to create this simple special effects.
I also added a twist to my video by comparing a No-Makeup Makeup with REALLY No-Makeup beauty tips.
Again, after many late and sleepless nights, I finally submitted both my videos! This time, with alot more praying cos Tokyo was on the line!
I also created a whatsap chat group with the other contestants, the ones I met and got contacts to anyways, just so we could give each other moral support! Hahaha, and we needed it!
Only 2 out of 20 people to be selected.
Finally got the results of the 2 winners to represent Malaysia!
And it was’t meeeee…….
Not that I really expected that much, there are alot of good participants out there!
Happy with everything that I have experienced though, so this memory will be locked away in my core memory and will shape the future of my Youtube Journey!
