Friends create “Pass the Brush Video” to have fun & connect in self isolation


For Brandon’s Jill Landry, creating a video (Pass the Brush) was a great way to connect with friends and have some fun during this period of self isolation. She tells that she had the idea after seeing a video on Tik Tok of some famous makeup artists doing this (Pass the Brush) and thought it would be fun to recreate here in Brandon. Putting the video together didn’t take long once everyone sent her their portion. Deciding who to ask and actually “getting ready” for the video took the most amount of time, according to Jill.

The group has been receiving a lot of positive feedback since the video was first posted a few days ago. “Everyone is loving the video, lots have said they’ve watched it 20+ times” said Jill. “We’ve even seen other locals recreate this video since we posted it! I think social media content is a fun way to put a smile on peoples faces during this time, and I think we did a good job of doing that.”
