Gingerbread Transformation Makeup

Gingerbread Makeup

Welcome to my Gingerbread Makeup ! I created this look for Christmas (obviously, duh -_- lol) and for this makeup I decided to do things a little a bit differently (and by a little bit I mean a lot !)

I didn’t film myself this time but instead, I took tons of progress pictures (over 80 of them !). I wanted to create a stop motion ‘movie’ for a change and I think I did ok for a first time! It’s not perfect because I wasn’t always standing at the exact same spot but now I know how to do this ! I guess… lol

Boy, can you believe the 45 sec clip I made for this look took me 2 days to edit.. 😱
Yup. Two days and about 80 pictures. For 45 seconds of video… 🤔

Anyway, I think the result looks cool but I definitely underestimated the amount of work it’d require 😅 While editing the video I couldn’t stop thinking about these stop motion cartoons, you know? … and I was doing the math… 😨 if my 45 seconds video took 2 days to edit I wonder how long it takes to make a 2 hours movie 😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱😱

Anyway lol thanks for being here, you’re awesome ! =)
