What am I doing?

I have had a lot of time to think lately about my YouTube channel, and about the type of videos I have been posting. I thought about so many of you and questions you have asked me and requests you given me! 

I realized that I haven't done what I have wanted to do, I got sidetracked along the way somewhere! 
I started to realize that things were moving in a different direction on YouTube then what I wanted it to, right before everything happened with Mia's friend!  I started to feel like I should of just named my channel  House of Reviews and Giveaways! Not that I don't love to do Giveaways but it was getting out of control and I became a freelance Makeup Artist so I could stop selling products, reviews feel cheesy like selling can sometimes! 

I want to share the things with you guys that I have learned, and be there to answer your questions, help you through situations makeup related or not! I have something different to give to you all and I finally see it clearly! 

When I started here on YouTube I didn't know anything, I just had seen a few of Lauren Luke's  (Pancea81) videos about a year and a half before I ever posted. When I first saw her videos I was so shocked that people would watch someone do there makeup, I said to  Steve (my husband) "thats what I do, I can do that!" He said "I know thats why I showed you this!" 

So you can all imagine my shock when I really entered the YouTube Community! I was so overwhelmed at first with all the love and encouragement from all of you! I didn't know what to expect!
I come from a family of ball busters, smart asses, whatever you want to call it so the insults don't bother me much. 

Its the part of YouTube a viewer may not see its the Reviews, The Faves, The Sponsorships, Affilate Programs, Adsense, Revenue Sharing, Disclaimers, Hackers, Trolls, Haters, Make Believe Celebrities, I mean there's even clicks! Some Guru's...
Oh and Guru everyone's a Guru! Never knew that before YouTube! 

Wikipedia Definition of a Guru
(A guru is one who is regarded as having great knowledge, wisdom, and authority in a certain area, and who uses it to guide others (teacher). Other forms of manifestation of this principle can include parents, school teachers, non-human objects (books) and even one's own intellectual discipline, if the aforementioned are in a guidance role.)

Anyways some Makeup Guru's only talk to select other Makeup Guru's, which is weird to me. I think its weird because I Love to talk to you guys wether you are a video maker, makeup lover, makeup artist, I really don't care who you are, if you are someone who has taken the time to watch my videos, send me a message, subscribe to me how ever you choose to reach out to me I see it as an honor and a privilege to have you in my life and that you let me into yours!

I'm asking you all  to please understand that I couldn't bring myself to post another review video! I want to post valuable content that you all deserve from me! I love you guys You have made this part of my Makeup Career so much fun! Thank you for bringing so much joy to my life! 

Also If you are subscribed to my website you will notice I stripped everything! You will love what I am going to post so please hang in there with me! If you are New here please sub so you don't miss anything! 


  1. Love it Camille! I've gotten so sick of YT beauty vids lately, its just one phony product push after another and my time is too valuable to sit through all of that, so now, I just watch the makeup vids which is why I first subscribed to YT. I'm looking forward to your new vids! xoxo Michele

  2. I agree with what Mich CoccaBene posted--YT has been on the decline on the Beauty side, except for the select 'gurus' who have had the awesome opportunity to gain several hundred thousand subscribers. I don't want to say that I have been discouraged or disheartened on doing my own videos or anything, but sometimes I just get tired of it all. I started out my YT account to reach into the viral makeup community to learn and to show my progress via video. It was a creative outlet for me to express how fun makeup can be. As it grew, I decided that I wanted to get into the makeup artist business and I use my videos to gain a foothold with potential clients. It's interesting how there are now thousands of others possibly doing the same thing as me, competing (or so it seems) for subscribers and views to get the Google paycheck. It's really sad that that has become the only motive in many others' reasons for doing it. =/

  3. I am sure this post has touched all the internet visitors, its really realoly fastidious article on building up new blog.
