My favourite thing about watching YouTube beauty videos is the wealth of information I learn about the latest brand releases, what products to stay away from, and the makeup looks to try in time for the fall season. So I did another YouTube binge this week and watched a bunch of beauty videos.
Here are the top 6 videos that stood out:
DRUGSTORE DUPES | Tom Ford, MAC, YSL, OCC Lip Tar
September Favorites 2014
My Night Time Skin Care Routine | Fall 2014
Removing my makeup after a long day is always the best feeling in the world, next to the relaxing feeling of layering skincare just before bed. A good night time skincare regiment is the best thing you can do for your skin as it allows the products to sink in and work as you sleep. Skin care routine videos such as this, is a great way to see what other girls are using--perfect for when you run out of your favourite serum and want to try something else.
I've recovered quite a bit from my skincare and makeup hoarding habit. I used to be terrible at buying loads of products only to be disappointed by them and stashing them away in my cabinet, never to be seen again. Videos such as this have helped me cut back on my spending. I now know what to stay away from whenever I am in the mood to purchase new products. Of course, products work differently on different people--what may be deemed rubbish to some could actually be a holy-grail product for another. But it's always good to arm yourself with good and bad reviews of products so you can make a more informed choice and not just throw your money at a hyped product.

TUTORIAL: Fall Vampy Makeup
It's finally fall season and that can only mean one thing: dark, vampy lips! I love my go-to pink and red lipsticks for most of the year; but when the fall season comes around and the weather starts to cool down (even just a little bit!), I gravitate towards darker shades. This makeup tutorial is perfect for the season, paired with a comfy sweater for a relaxed, night out with your friends.
Birthdays are great. Everyone loves birthdays. But when you're a YouTube beauty guru and celebrating your birthday, the best way to do so is to play around with your makeup and create a special birthday look for yourself. The thick winged eye-liner and soft smoky eye is the perfect hey-it's-my-birthday look.
Side note: I love how she started a tradition of purchasing one new makeup palette every year for her birthday. I should do the same.
