Now that I have the time to blog again, I am finally am able to share my Beauty Bound Asia Challenge journey!
It was a fun roller coaster ride, definitely something I will do again if I had a chance. For the FREEBIES! Hahaha.
Seriously, I did meet alot of awesome friends as well! A great experience which made me start my youtube channel.
So 3 months ago, I submitted a video to enter a challenge called Beauty Bound Asia, which was a collaboration between SKII and Youtube.
This challenge is for whole of Asia, so not only were there 60 plus contestants chosen in Malaysia, but also in other countries such as Taiwan, Philippines, Japan, Thailand, Hong Kong & alot more countries.
We were to go through 2 local challenges and then shortlisted to 2 winners who will be chosen from each country to go to TOKYO for a finale challenge and represent their respective country. In the end 1 winner will be chosen to work with SKII, other big brands & Michelle Phan (a famous youtube star) personally, as well as an all expense paid trip to New York!!
My submission video
I was absolutely giddy with excitement when I received an email saying I was one of the people chosen to join the challenge!
We were invited to a gathering where we were briefed on the first part of the challenge. The gathering was fun!
Got alot of memory tokens which are hanging all over my house now, reminding me of all the exciting time I had and what a great feeling it is to be alive!
I was also pleasantly surprised of how friendly everyone was! Made a few amazing friends which I still cherish even after the challenge is over.
We also got to meet Faa Firds & Emily Quak, famous Malaysian Beauty Youtube bloggers who not only shared their experiences, gave some really good advice & insights, but is also the Judges for our upcoming challenge!
We also learned from Youtube how to customise our youtube channel (**Let me know if you are interested & I’ll make a blog post on the tips I got during the talk**) and also how to monetise our Youtube Channels! Cool Stuff.
Wished they had covered more in depth stuff, but I guess they wanted to talk about all the basics as this was our first gathering and alot of us were beginner noobs, like me!
So our first challenge was to make 2 youtube videos!
- One video is an Unboxing video of the goodies we got from Youtube & SKII.
- Another video was a seasonal beauty tip video!
My First UNBOXING VIDEO
To make it more interesting I decided to teach people how to make an unboxing video while I made my first one! However, that flew straight out the window when I starting getting all excited about all the stuff I received!
LOOK AT ALL THOSE STUFFFF
And my Seasonal Beauty Tip & Makeup Video
For this video I chose the theme, Haze! We go through this EVERY YEAR, that it might as well be a real season here, other than monsoon & scorching hot tropical summer for the rest of the year.
I submitted everything after what seemed like never ending sleepless nights, with a huge sigh of relieve and a prayer that it was enough to get through the next round!
Which was announced early September… *Drumrollllllll*
I GOT Through!!!! as everyone who has watched my youtube video would know.
But I still get the same happy chills every time I remember receiving the news, I was driving on the highway and had to stop at the side of the road to squeal with glee… heheheh.
One small step to TOKYO, baby!
Foooh! That is a long story, but there is still so much more to share!
Will continue with Part 2 of this Beauty Bound Asia Challenge journey in my next post soon,ya!
