On July 15th I filmed FIVE wig reviews of little shorties I’d recently purchased. It took quite awhile just to film them all (whenever I film that many in a day I’m pretty good and burned out by the last one) and I made sure I had all my camera makeup on and my lighting and set-up right so I could hold my little filming marathon.
UNFORTUNATELY, upon editing the first vid (this one), I realized that the new makeup I’d bought in a slightly darker shade to match my skin since I’ve been out in the sun a bit swimming about in the pool this summer did NOT match the DermaBlend I used on my neck (to cover sun damage, ironically) AT ALL. And, since I am wearing super-short wigs in every single video, the incredibly unsightly LINE around my jaw is painfully visible. It looks HORRIBLE. I mean, I’m not a huge fan of my profile as it is (not the most flattering angle for either my nose or my chin) but to add a huge makeup demarcation line (not to mention that the foundation was CLEARLY slapped on and the damn line isn’t even a very neat one) was too much for me to bear, so I swept all those videos out of my mind and thought I’d come back to them later if I ever felt I could deal with the disaster.
OK, disaster is probably overstating the problem, but it still makes me cringe. However, I filmed these damn videos so I’m going to edit and share them. From the lack of response these super-short, low-priced wigs tend to get here, I kind of doubt many people will watch long enough into the video to get to the tragic foundation lines anyway. But honestly – I love these little shorties! Especially Molly here, and the Mary I already reviewed. They’re so cheap and easy to wear – it’s literally just a little hair hat – and people really do NOT suspect something this short is a wig. Especially when the wig has some gray in it; I got compliments on Molly constantly and it always freaked people out when I told them it was a wig.
Anyway, for the few who make it to the end of the video, enjoy the ridiculous makeup job. And get ready, because I have four more videos of myself looking a hot mess from the sides!
