MY FAVORITE TOOL FOR GOING LIVE FROM YOUR DESKTOP
EARBUD WITH MIC (GREAT QUALITY AND INEXPENSIVE)
Even Better Quality Mic For Your Studio
I have recently committed to using this mic when I'm shooting live videos from my home computer. The difference in sound quality is a complete 180. Seriously. Do it. Such a great addition to my live video gear.
Here's a link if you don't see the info below. Blue Yeti USB Microphone – Blackout Edition
AFFORDABLE, EASY TO USE WEBCAM
CELL PHONE TRIPOD ADAPTER
This is basically the end of a selfie stick. So if you have a selfie stick, check and see if you can unscrew the end. That will work too!
LIGHT WEIGHT CELL PHONE TRIPOD (Inexpensive and light weight)
I use this more than anything. It's super lightweight and would probably blow over in a storm… but I don't “livestorm” very often. : )
MeFOTO HEAVY DUTY TRIPOD(A little more moolah but tough enough to stand up to an a more adventurous live video.)
MY FAVORITE!!! WINDOW/CLAMP CELLPHONE MOUNT (I clamp this onto my “standing desk.”)
These are great for windows so you can get natural light, or mirrors. AND, you can also clamp it onto a standing desk (aka music stand – see below.) THEN you can have your computer nearby, it's amazing and a must have for your live video gear.
SMALL CELL PHONE RING LIGHT
NEW DESKTOP LIGHT THAT IS SERIOUSLY AWESOME
MEDIUM LIGHTS THAT CAN BE USED ANYWHERE WITH AN OUTLET
(I have these permanently up in my studio. They are really thin and easy to keep out of the way. You can see them in action here – www.ThePreparedPerformer.com/lights
MEDIUM LIGHTS THAT CAN BE USED ANYWHERE – POWERED BY AA BATTERIES
I just started using this light. It's really nice because it's so small… BUT it's not quite as bright as the others. So I'm going to get two : )
Also, it doesn't come with a tripod… so you may want to grab this tripod as well.
MEGA AWESOME GIANT RING THAT SERIOUSLY UPPED MY VIDEO QUALITY
AWESOME POP UP BACKDROP
I love mixing up my locations on Facebook Live… but this solid black back drop is an AMAZING staple. And. it easily folds up like a car sun shield. I recorded a video of it in action that I'll post soon.

MAKEUP THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE A ROCKSTAR
With the crazy lights on your face, it's really easy to get washed out. You'll look more like YOU if you spruce it up a bit with some lashes, lips, lids, and rouge. You can find my absolute favorite makeup line for the camera at www.WooHooLashes.com
