Jalanda James is a friend I met a while ago through a networking event. She is a New York City based videographer and has an amazing makeup tip I had to share with you, specially if you’re doing video.
In her own words: “I had a guest come over and use my bathroom. I went into the bathroom after she left and was mortified to see my tube of Monistat staring me in the face.
I thought I had learned my “hide your feminine girlie stuff” lesson after my date Billy Bernstein commented on such after using my bathroom. (That was one of the most embarrassing moments of my life and the funniest. It’s my go to thought when I think of Billy Bernstein dying in the World Trade Center. It makes me laugh instead of feel sad for him).
So anyway, just in case you come over and see my Monistat staring you in the face, here is my excuse.
In my past life, I used to be a Makeup Artist. I used to love makeup. Not so much anymore. I’m now more into functional makeup as opposed to the high fashion looks, I used to ogle over.
Well, after trolling makeup forums for hours on end, I discovered the secret powers of Monistat Chaffing Gel.
It’s not the one you’re thinking of. The gooey white one is a mess. This Chaffing Gel has a powdery consistency like a primer; smooth and dry.
The best thing about the Monistat version is that there is alot of it for $5. Unfortunately, it’s kinda hard to find. I ended up finding mine at a Rite Aid store.
This primer is the perfect edition to a makeup bag. It will make your makeup go on smooth and even, and will last all day.
So if you think you may record videos later in the day, apply this primer earlier in the day, and you won’t have to redo your makeup. Anything helps when recording videos. They can zap all your time.
(P.S. Man, I seem really sensitive about my feminine perception. Not really. Just thought it’d be a funny topic. Sorry if you’re offended. But this stuff works and makes your makeup last forever. Try it and see).”
Chicas, you know I am all about eZ and affordable! Isn’t this fabulous?
