YouTube Made Me Do It | Part 1


This is a 3 part series of "YouTube made me do it". Over the past several years my makeup collection has GROWN so much. Moving out of my house at 21 and knowing nothing about makeup, I began getting curious about the makeup world and started "googling" to find out what's out there. I found a whole new world of YouTube videos explaining, reviewing and sharing makeup. 6 years later my makeup collection is INSANE!

As I've gained knowledge about the beauty world I've defiantly been experimenting and trying out tons of new products. I feel like YouTube has been a huge influence on my product purchasing....what can I say? I'm a weak person when I read a bunch of good reviews over and over I feel like I HAVE to run out and purchase the product as well.

Here are just a few that I've tried so far...

Benefit Hoola Bronzer - this is a great bronzer and every beauty blogger talks about this product. It's great to use when you are bronzing or I've even used it as my contour

Make Up Forever HD Foundation - love this foundation, again a very talked about product. Unfortunately I can't find my perfect color match in this foundation so I always have to mix foundations when I use this but it looks great on camera

Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Makeup - I wish I loved this foundation...I really do but it just doesn't work for me. First off this is a very matte foundation and I have dry skin so it looks very cakey on my. Second off this foundation oxidizes and usually turns orange on my skin. I've tried everything to make it work for me but so far I've still had no luck

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion (Eden) - Out of all the eyeshadow primers Urban Decay makes this is by far my favorite. This primer will cancel out any discoloration on your eyelids before applying eyeshadow

Mac Minlralize Skinfinish (soft & gentle) - This used to be my favorite highlight but I've since moved on. I've  used this probably for 1 year straight and it doesn't look like I've used any at all! I don't think I will ever have to repurchase this product...amazing how long it lasts

Benefit Gimme Brow - Another product that I want to like but it just doesn't seem to work for me. This is color gel to set your eyebrows but I think I still prefer clear brow gel

Covergirl Ready Set Gorgeous Foundation - This is a great foundation but unfortunately I wasn't able to find my perfect color match so I don't ever wear this foundation

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - This is a great setting powder but my skin it too dry to use this. If you have oily skin I highly recommend this! It's a great setting powder and since it's drugstore it is a great price

Maybelline Rocket Mascara - Great drugstore mascara, I like the waterproof formula better than the regular formula. If you have hard to curl lashes this is AMAZING, it really holds a curl and you can layer another mascara overtop if you want more volume

Loreal Color Richie (Sugar Plum) - Great lipstick but this isn't my color. It's a very creamy formula but I would recommend wearing a liner under if you want it to last for a long time
