Lighting is everthing

Lighting is everything! As I mention in this Instagram post below, I use a ring light. Here is the one I use:

Neewer Ring Light Kit:18″/48cm Outer 55W 5500K Dimmable LED Ring Light, Light Stand

Sunshine always makes my photos look so much better – it’s a game changer. Without it I struggle to take a good photo (I’m not a photographer, just a snap happy enthusiastic amateur) The sunlight bounces off the skylight below my office window to light up my face. I put my camera directly in front of the window and use a ring light to help illuminate my face with warmer tones. Who else loves their ring light?
I use this one from Neewer:

Without the light I am sure I would look ten years older! It was certainly a good investment. TOP TIP: I also use it for video conference calls!
Lighting is everything.
Just editing a realtime video of my makeup for this shot as I’ve had so many requests over the past few days following my before and after photo. The transformation blew so many women’s minds! Anyone can look glowing and a little more vibrant after a few minutes with some makeup and a magic wand… I mean brush ?

Check back soon for this IGTV.
