I don't know what I expected, but it was not "you will have to pause a 5-minute video about makeup fundamentals twice because you will not be able to stop laughing."

Look, I'm not taking an opinion on the dental work she says she can't afford, but with talent like that, she should be able to buy a Costco 5-gallon bucket of teeth if she wants.

It's all so clear now!!!

I can do bangup stage/horror makeup. But when I casually tried light contouring for a daytime use, my husband discretely called me aside and whispered that I had some dirt or something on my face. NOW I see my problem... there is no such thing as light contouring!

Brilliant.

My favorite is her take down of 'pick-ME!' women while trashing women who drag down other women, recursive satire of epic proportions, she deserves a MUCH wider audience.

Well there's your new female Doctor Who right here. Slight midlantic accent, when she uses it, nails it for me.

Contouring is cool. Like a fez.

Wish she’d look right into the camera, just once.

Funny for a bit, wears thin for me on multiple views. I wonder what she’s like IRL. (Sorry to be a wet blanket, I did LOL at first.)

She's probably awesome in person. Sometimes in YouTube videos, people do what's called "acting", where they take on a different persona. It's a neat trick!

Hilarious, but I had to take the precaution of watching them only in incognito mode. If YouTube's algorithm detects I have watched any kind of makeup tutorial video, it will, I know, recommend them exclusively for at least a month. I have never watched a YouTube makeup tutorial video before, yet the algorithm persistently recommends them (for all I know, on the basis of my having watched a single behind-the-scenes video on the making of John Carpenter's The Thing.)

Also, she has a cooking video that's stylistically different from the makeup ones but no less entertaining: COOKING WITH BEVERLY RAY LEWIS MARTHA STEWART.

kinnakeet, she does look straight into the camera a bit. I was gathering a timestamp but then I pulled myself together because that's ridiculous. Anyway, you'll be happy to know your wish already came true.

re: looking into the camera... for the first time in my entire life, I have to make videos in which I talk. These are videos I'm required to make for a class I'm taking, and in these videos I have to discuss a specific topic for 1.5 to 2 minutes. So far, not a single person in my class including myself has managed to make a video in which they make eye contact with the camera for even half of the video's duration. It's actually really hard to make continual eye contact with the camera while speaking unless you've memorized all of your lines, or you have some kind of technology that will allow you to look at the device that is filming you and have it display your lines in the manner of a teleprompter. None of the three laptop computers I have in my home will allow me to do this, nor will my phone; filming video with any of these devices means that I can't read from the Notepad app, or Word, or wherever I've written my script. The only solution I've come up with that doesn't involve me spending money I don't have on technology I only need once every couple of weeks for a 12 week segment of my life, is to print out my script and prop it up so that I can read from it while looking as close to the camera as I can. It works well enough, but as with every other student in my class, it's obvious that I'm reading from something offscreen.

Just like this lady's video.

Huh. Maybe she has limited technology at her fingertips but still wants to have fun and express herself.

Might I suggest Rabb.it (https://rabb.it)? Despite them declining to use the term "burrow" as I suggested, it allows you to set up a room where you can share anything you can load in a browser, and it provides sharing, voice and text chat, even an optional minicam window. You can even lock the room once your guests arrive.

I don't work for them, but I live in the Midwest, and have a good buddy in Washington State and we use Rabb.it to allow us to have movie nights and watch our shows together and stuff.

I know you can use Skype, but Rabb.it is free, doesn't require anything other than a browser, and can be really fast and easy once you get used to how to use it.

I really like her. It's actually even funnier if you watch it again at 1.5 x speed (hit the gear icon in the bottom right corner to speed up any YouTube vids- almost all funny things are much better at about 1.25%)

I think she doesn’t look in the camera because she’s looking at herself in the camera preview screen thingie

You know the thingie on the side that sort of acts like a mirror if you turn it around

Is there a technical term for this or am I thinking of a camcorder era relic

She is hilarious and talented but I was expecting her to contour her face to resemble an actual pterodactyl. Slightly disappointing.

She's a wrestler and she's in the military.

About the Thanksgiving-related video: some similar takes by Native Americans (Sailor J's said she didn't know about those videos before making her own).
