The Video on Fire

If any of you are as nerdy as I am, you went to see Hunger Games Mocking Jay Part 1 at midnight!

Not only am I a huge fan of the book and movie series, it holds sentimental value to me. When the first trailer released for Catching Fire I was automatically drawn to Katniss’s makeup look when entering the Capitol for the second time.

I sat down in my living room behind my camera and filmed it, just for fun. It was my fourth YouTube tutorial and I was only expecting the 100 or so views I had been getting, up until this point. Boy did I wake up to the coolest surprise….

Over night my video had received 1,200 views, from all over the world! My Girl on Fire tutorial quickly turned into the Video on Fire!! To this day it is my second most viewed tutorial with 14,500 and counting views. I love reading all the positive comments and I REALLY love being tagged in pictures of friends and followers who have duplicated my the look! I fully believe this video put me on the map and gave me the confidence to keep filming.

So, this is a BIG thank you to everyone who has supported me, inspired me, and continues to watch my videos. I make them just for the pure joy of it. And it’s really cool that my passion is also my hobby. And it’s even cooler than you all enjoy my hobby enough to watch and share it with others!

Here it is, the video that started it all:
