Every girl has a makeup bag full of product! Why not take it out, go through it and give your opinion on the each of the items, how much you use them and if you’d recommend your viewers to try them. You can even try some of the products on camera for your viewers to see exactly how they work.

An empties video is a video reviewing the products that you’ve finished with and your experience with those products. With empties videos, you can tell your audience exactly what you thought of the products, how you used them, showcase the looks you achieved with those products and if you would buy them again! For example, on one of my favorite beauty blogs, AvantVous, she reviews her empties nearly every month and gives a clear indication of what she liked and didn’t like about the products she used!

In the world of cosmetics, new products are coming out constantly with bold claims that are supposed to fix or improve everything and anything.
