This question comes from a comment by V. Violett, and the subsequent discussion on the Belly Dance Teaching Facebook Group. VV is currently using iTunes as a share within Zoom, and an external mic coming in via the mini-jack plug on the side of her HP laptop. She is seeking ways to streamline her set-up before classes, and is considering a virtual mixer over a physical mixer for her use-case. Here's my thoughts:
My feed seems full of friends playing with make-up right now during quarantine. What a fun way to break up the monotony of COVID-19 quarantine, to add a splash of color and sass to your day!
To get you in the spirit, here's a link to a blog post I made way back in the day, and the tutorials within are still some of my faves for basics in everyday makeup skills for those getting started. And of course, I still think my basic tutorial on tribal bellydance makeup is a solid guide, but I'll let you be the judge. Check it out, and have fun playing!
