What's a Google Helpout?

What's a Google Helpout?

In November, Google launched what they call a Google Helpout. Basically, a Helpout is a paid live video chat with experts in a variety of different categories. Need help with your cooking skills? Get Kitchit cooking lesson from a real chef in real time while you follow along. Need help learning how to sew? Visit Sewing On My Kitchen Table to have a live video tutorial scheduled. And what about learning how to contour your own face or how to make your eyes look bigger with makeup? Now, you can have a Google Helpout with me! Click here to visit my Helpout.

Brillant, right? This is the next generation of social interaction. Instead of watching a video tutorial on YouTube, we now have the option of getting an expert to guide us step-by-step via video chat. It's customized just for us! Google's idea of a Helpout is "real help from real people in real time". How cool is that?

What I really love about the Google Helpouts is that all Helpout experts must be vetted and approved by Google before a Helpout goes live. The Google team makes sure that the Helpouts are given by true experts in their category.

For my Google Helpout, I will be focusing on three topics:

  • How to highlight and contour the face
  • How to use eye makeup to allow your eyes to look larger
  • How to properly apply foundation

I have made the decision to make my first Google Helpout free for anyone that wants to sign up for one! If you would like to do a Helpout with me, please send me a request time on my Helpout page! Click here.
